“But…she was naked and all, ARTICULATE!” -Malcolm Reynolds, “Our Mrs. Reynolds”, Firefly
This is a term that has become much more popular in the past couple years. A sapiosexual is someone who is sexually aroused by intelligence. In a society that seems to celebrate willful ignorance, mediocrity, and conformity, being sapiosexual is practically a defense mechanism. Being able to stimulate both the intellect and the loins is an admirable feat for men and women alike. Naturally, there is a difference between intelligence and overweening arrogance. The latter is someone who thinks they know all but really knows very little. They can never be corrected and can’t stand to be wrong or admit that they were wrong.
But the person who is naturally curious, quick-witted, open to new experiences, can form an opinion that they won’t mind re-examining if the need arises, well, those have been my very best lovers, both inside and outside the demimonde.
