On the 22. December 2011, I wrote the following lines: "Recently, I came across Facebook to a new word: sapiosexual. It sounds a bit sharp and a bit toxic, such as Chili and peppers. And mean it's so much like: "Someone, for the intelligence of the sexually most attractive attribute." How wonderful. Clearly, like I trained in men nice arms, a tight Butt and a little belly, but all of this without the spirit is useless. So, I'm now a self-confessed Sapiosexual!"
These lines – as you will talk to me – are hard to beat in mediocrity. You might say they are downright plump. Anyway – forgive I me for a long time. Because first of all I needed that day in December, urgently need a content for my Blog "Sex and Sensibility". Secondly, I am content; intelligence and wisdom I feel is actually highly erotic. I love a sharp dialogical ping-pong, is an intellectual struggle, in which I feel my Towards increasingly recognized. And thirdly, I have written in the last seven years, other texts, of which I hope at least that you make to the said nine zeiler is a fine intellectual counter-weight.
Even more sobering is the fact that, of all things, this miniature since their appearance on annabelle.is ch of the most-clicked the Text at all. With almost defiant tenacity he ousted any competition: reports that are created under the day-long torments, glosses, comments, and even recipes for Asparagus, and sex Toy testing. Of these nine lines, it seems, will inevitably lead to the crowning of my journalistic work. After all, you could say, well, because the attribute "most clicked" is not to be despised. But, how could it come so far?
"You don't need bigger boobs. You need to read better books."Instagram-saying
Maybe, I thought to myself, it is simply the Latin. Let me go back a short: "Sapio" is the first Person Singular present indicative of the Verb "sapere" and is white with "I, I understand, I've translated the taste". If one combines the "sapio" with "sexually", a fancy Label, with the a in principle, ancient phenomenon is in line with the current Zeitgeist life stylisieren.
Because of the erotic potential of the spiritual potency of my great-aunt already knew, at least she realized when she was missing her. So she told how she had a nice, but not very crafty gardener who wanted to marry her, on the left, to learn English in London: and what is "Better" to have a look. Of course she was also on Status, but she wanted a man who could meet her eye-to-eye. Unfortunately, none came to the gardener, and my great-aunt remained until their end-of-life unmanned. Whether it was just because 96 years old and, until shortly before her death, most rugged health enjoyed.
There needs to be a balance
When you Investigate reasons for the upswing of the label sapiosexuell one comes quickly to the Thesis that today, in the age of socio-media tribute duration bachelor of filtered fitness models, as well as of the collective Shepherding of telegenic young, the focus is on the intellect a logical counter-trend. The Credo of "Sexy-is-the-new-Smart", brauchts just compensation, "the Intelligent-in-the-new-Sexy". An indication of this is that, in parallel to the success of the dumb TV-dome show "the Bachelor" Dating platforms like Ok Cupid and Tinder the term sapiosexuell in your profile masks have integrated. Now Facebook exist-groups such as "Intelligence Is Sexy", to which both women and men, together, consider the intelligence as attractive as the exterior – after all, the Latter decay with increasing age, the spirit remains.
9.7 million people have joined this group, almost as many people as Sweden has inhabitants. To carry your creed to the outside, sold "Intelligence Is Sexy" T-Shirts with this inscription, for women and for men such a "Make Intelligence Great Again". On Instagram sayings such as: "You don't need bigger boobs. You need to read better books" – You don't need larger Breasts. You need better books. Or: "I like men with massive, throbbing vocabularies" – I love a man with a fiercely vibrant vocabulary. If you don't find the Latter in the analog existence, most Recently, the possibility to keep on the Dating Site getsapio.com according to a Partner of the IQs on the look-out.
Without a sense of humour, self-irony, empathy, and good manners is all cunning nothing.
in the Meantime, the community of Sapiosexuellen tried to explain the sex appeal of intelligence, even scientifically. In this context, it is always referred to a study by the American evolutionary psychologist Geoffrey Miller, the evidence that the IQ of a man is correlated with the quality of his sperm. A in fact attractive acceptance, but the opponent Tilmann Möltgen, Deputy chief physician of urology of the Kantonsspital Aarau speaks. "The quality of the sperm is determined solely on the basis of their agility, concentration and quickness," he says dryly, "what chromosonale charge you have, you can't determine." He argues, however, that intelligence, or better be Smart-Be quite an evolutionary advantage, so it makes sense, if a smart woman is looking for a smart man, and Vice versa. "Because cunning", Möltgen, "is the only advantage we humans have over all other species. Where we have to ask ourselves here is, of course, what is intelligence, anyway."
Exactly, and thus we come to the criticism of the term sapiosexuell. Purely academically trimmed intelligence is no sex appeal. In this respect, my great-aunt would have had to look at your gardener might take a closer look. Because without a sense of Humor, self-irony, empathy, and good manners, all the cleverness is nothing (I should've in the above nine lines). So I've sent a few promising Dates on the last Tram or insists that the table at which we dined, and remained between us.
intelligence is in seventh place
Jörgen, for example, (all names are of course changed) had put the prospect of licking the Cunnilingus with tongue, Greek letters, but he froze every Time a concrete cone, when I took him a bit high. Stefan had philosophizes stunning on illegal constructs in the case of hedge funds, but he has been downright abusive, as he noticed that his wine glass was broken, because he believed he had swallowed a splinter of glass, and would now bleed to death internally. After this experience, it amazes me that on Parship, the largest Swiss Dating platform, intelligence as the most important criterion in the choice of partners is only in seventh place appears – to honesty, reliability, Humor, and Loyalty. Notabene in women as in men.
But to return to the attribute "most clicked". After a thorough analysis it is necessary to hold: The Latin was not a decisive factor. Very much Central is that I'm English, haven't used with a "sapiosexual" is the German spelling, what is the range of my Nine site is a complete enlarged infinitely – but at the same time for lightning quick get Off is not taken care of, because many users understand the German Text. The ultimate multiplier, however, is a much more sobering: the Top placement in the Google Ranking. Their Genesis can be interpreted: We have catapulted the term "sapiosexual" in 2011, on the Web, so very early, a whole three years before the Dating Apps Tinder and Ok Cupid have discovered the concept for themselves. So a lot of good Timing to reward the Google Algorithms. This means that anyone who enters the term, as the First of my "articles". That's it. To cover as much of my journalist Work. But hey: most-clicked is usually clicked. After all.
