The Wrap has shared an interview with David S Goyer and Tom, where they discuss Leonardo's sex life (or rather lack of it) in season 2. It seems that the storyline for season 2 may not call for Tom's character to have sexual relations with anyone! So, Leonardo's bisexuality isn't actively being avoided. Read the interview in full on The Wrap website.
One of the most popular (and certainly the most controversial) episodes from the first season of Starz’s “Da Vinci’s Demons” was the one on which Leonardo (Tom Riley) went on trial for sodomy and it was revealed that he was bisexual. Despite the popularity of the episode, an individual close to the production told TheWrap that the series was backing away from Leonardo’s bisexuality on the upcoming second season, which finds Florence in chaos and continues Leonardo’s dark quest to find the fabled Book of Leaves and uncover the secret history of his mother.
When asked about what we had heard regarding Leonardo’s sexuality on Season 2, “Da Vinci’s Demons” creator David S. Goyer told TheWrap, “I don’t think that’s accurate.”

By all accounts, season 2 will be darker, and while there will still be a fair amount of 'romp', Tom thinks there will be less sex this season. Tom was clearly enjoying the banter with journalists, as several tweeted his entertaining responses to questions.
