[1] Ingrid Sischy, "Calvin to the Core", Vanity Fair, April 2008, quoting Klein himself: "That was a period of time when sex was everywhere, as were drugs. Not for everyone, of course. I've experienced -- and I've said it before -- a lot of my fantasies. I've experienced sex with men, with women. I've fallen in love with women. I've married women. And I have a family." Later in the article: "Because of the open way that Calvin had displayed his attractions to and relationships with men, it was assumed [at the time of his second marriage] he was strictly gay (his earlier marriage being seen as some kind of aberration)."
