Recently i came across the word “sapiosexual” and i was curious to find out what does this word mean. I found a lot of different opinions on this topic online, so i picked the most logical explanation to this theory-word, which i think makes sense at least to me :)

Sapiosexual is a recently constructed word (neologism) that has come into common usage, particularly on social networking sites where people are self-identifying as sapiosexual. It is a concatenation of the latin root sapio-from sapiens meaning wise or intelligent (itself derived from sapere which means to taste, or rather, to discern) and the latin root -sexualis as it pertains to sexual preferences.

What does Sapiosexual mean?

Sapiosexual (n): a person who is sexually attracted to intelligence in others.

Sapiosexual (adj): of, or relating to, finding intellectual stimulation sexually arousing.

I am not sure if i would add myself to the term “sapiosexual”, but i would like to quote my favorite quote on love …(i am not sure about the author though:))

“It’s beautiful if you find someone that is in love with your mind. Someone that wants to undress your conscience and make love to your thought. Someone that wants to watch you slowly take down all the walls you’ve build up around your mind and let them inside.”
