The term "autosexual" describes people who are more sexually attracted to themselves than to other people. Although this is a relatively unusual term, many people identify as autosexual.
What is the correct definition?
An autosexual person feels sexual attraction primarily to himself. Someone who is autosexual may feel little or no sexual attraction to other people. This does not necessarily mean that autosexual people never feel sexually attracted to others or that they do not have sex with others. Although some autosexual people do not want to have sex with other people, some do.
Is there a test I can do?
There is no test that can determine if you are autosexual or not. If you think the term "autosexual" describes you, you can use that term.
What does it look like to be autosexual?
Autosexuality can look different to different people. Here are some examples:
- prefer masturbation to sex with others.
- feel sexually attracted to others, but very rarely. They feel sexual attraction to themselves.
- feel sexually attracted to others, but not intensely. However, they feel sexual attraction to themselves.
- enjoy sex with others, but do not feel particularly sexually attracted to others.
Do I have to tell people?
You should not feel pressured to tell the truth. If you want to show others that you are autosexual, that's fine! But if you do not want to, there is no problem.
