1. (n.) A behavior of becoming attracted to or aroused by intelligence and its use.

Origins: From the Latin root sapien, wise or intelligent, and Latin sexualis, relating to the sexes.

Example: Me? I don't care too much about the looks. I want an incisive, inquisitive, insightful, irreverent mind. I want someone for whom philosophical discussion is foreplay. I want someone who sometimes makes me go ouch due to their wit and evil sense of humor. I want someone that I can reach out and touch randomly. I want someone I can cuddle with. I decided this all means that I am sapiosexual.

  1. i had no idea there's actually a word for this!

  2. Well, since it's from the Unword Dictionary, it's not really an existing word. You won't find it in an official dictionary. I do like the term though, and it does sound like me 🙂

  3. it's in print – it's a word now!
