Sapiosexual is a fictional word that has recently been widely used. The term became popular with the advent of dating apps like OkCupid and Sapio, which allow users to define themselves sexually. Along with a variety of terms such as hetero, homo, transsexual, metrosexual, etc., there is also sapiosexual.
The word has a Latin root – “sapien” means wise, and “sexualis” defines gender.
However, this is not about gender. In order to define yourself as sapiosexual, you need to fall in love with the minds, not the eyes, chest, or other tempting parts of the male or female body.
The sapiosexual person finds the intellect of the other party as its most attractive quality, which excites him. Physical characteristics remain in the background. So you can sexually like women and men, as long as they are at the intellectual level that attracts you.
There are several signs to make sure you are sapiosexual. Thus, the pre-game for you may not include strawberries and champagne, kissing or oral sex – instead, you are overwhelmed by erotic thoughts only while listening to your partner’s thoughts.
Another sign is that you are falling in love with a person with whom, if you had not talked, your eye would never have stopped. Someone who is not your type at all or someone of the same sex … Yes, it is possible.
This is a completely natural attraction to other intelligent human beings. Unlike other types of sexuality, which come with the heavy burden of feeling different, sapiosexuals need to be calm. According to experts, it is completely natural to get aroused because of the intellect, and not so much because of a person’s body. It is also believed that sapiosexual relationships have a greater chance, as the intimacy between the two in them is on another level, which exceeds the chemistry between the naked bodies.
