5 Things Sapiosexuals Desperately NEED You To Know About Them
Sapiosexuals don’t have it easy.
Not only do they require a real, intense intellectual and mental connection in order feel sexual attraction, but so many people are confused or skeptical about this relatively new term for sexual identity that it can be hard to come out as sapiosexual and not feel like you’re facing a firing squad.
Being a sapiosexual is all too real, and as a lady who writes about sex and attraction on the internet, I have had the pleasure of talking with several of them.
I asked a couple of anonymous sapiosexuals what things they felt like non-sapiosexuals needed to know about being sapiosexual.
Here’s what they had to say!
1. How each person defines sapiosexuality is a little different.

While this is true for this sapiosexual, some won’t even have sex unless their brain is tickled sufficiently (sexy).
