    A bisexual teenager describes his life, day after day. He has no girlfriend or boyfriend and finds his life a bit boring thus. One day, he says :
    "I’m having some straight time with my mates." and right after this, we see him with a group of male teenagers, talking about girls.

    I would like an English-speaker's point of view : do you think "straight" here means "heterosexual" or does it just mean he does nothing really exciting but hang with his friends?

    Merci et bon week-end !

    You are right, 'straight' in this context means hetrosexual

    I agree with Pitstop. At least in your hero's perception, chatting with ones mates about girls is an activity typical of heterosexual guys.
