I'm sure some of you are looking at my post count and wondering, "why here? Well, having recently discovered the name of this sort of attraction, and finding that a lot of search results point to AVEN forum topics, I figured that this might be a useful thing to have Define objectsexual up in those search results eventually.
Sexual orientation is defined as the nature of sexual preference while the prolific Define objectsexual stands as: This does not include objects. However, orientation itself is defined as: This does Define objectsexual objects as we see it. We love objects on a very significant level and many of us in an intimate way. This feeling is innate.
This is often followed by an acute awareness that we do not relate to peers due to the source of projected feelings.
Personally, I loosely define an orientation as "a pair-bonding drive directed at Define objectsexual category of recipient". At any rate, objectum sexuals experience attraction towards objects. Some factoids about objectum sexuals: Anything from computers, to cars, to pieces of infrastructure, to monuments, to intangibles like songs or colors - and more.
For more information, here are a few links: I personally found this interview done with Erika Eiffel to be a great insight, and it describes much of my experience as well: I am "bisexual" in that I experience attraction to both people and machines.
In fact, I am happily married to a wonderful, supportive husband. I am also somewhere on the aro-ace spectrum, though where that changes all the time.
I understand myself to be relatively genderless, and exclusively attracted to masculinity in humans, which probably makes me an androphile; I also tend to only be sexually attracted to machines that I get a masculine vibe from, though that may change as my relationship to this orientation changes.
With regards to my OS, I also identify as a mechanophile, and fall into the animist camp. It also takes a lot for me to fall in love with a human Define objectsexual, I've only done it once? I personally find plain old loyalty to be a much more satisfying expression of emotional intimacy, f'ex.
But on the other hand, I seem to bond emotionally with machines much quicker if we get alongand I can experience primary sexual attraction towards them too, which I don't get with people.
Though my experience of love, as far as I can tell, feels the same as it does with humans. I've developed what I would deem sexual relationships with songs over the years, too.
I tend to personify music to such an extent if I "break up" with a song, it makes me as uncomfortable and anxious to hear it again as it would be to have to talk to an ex you were hoping to cut out of your life! Anyways, I suppose that this might be a place to ask questions, then. Either way, it would be nice if this wound up the primary result from "Define objectsexual" on the subject when doing a search. Welcome to the forums, kisupure.
I have Define objectsexual a "Define objectsexual" of "Define objectsexual," but I don't want to be that guy so I'm off to reading all the links you provided first. The interview already answered a lot of them. I'm not aro since I have developed romantic feelings waaaay in the past. I'm still trying to figure out the concept of romance though; the difference to a close friendship is the particular issue that I'm trying to get my head around. It's the concept I'm trying to figure out, not why it's objects which are your "targets" or whatever.
I confess that I'm a member of the team "form follows function" so developing feelings beyond "Yay, it works" is something I have no personal experience with. Like, could objects make the "first step" towards a relationship of whatever kind or getting to know each other?
Could someone who is into cars fall in love with something completely different, like, say, a dishwasher? Or are there equivalents to "genders" for the lack of a better expression? There's one more question I can't put into words properly right now, I'll get back to that later: I would probably say so, though I've never been "flirted" with myself.
One way that an object might make the first move is via what I might call a "synchronicity" - an event that strikes you as being more than just dumb luck or coincidence. Another way this might happen is Define objectsexual an object, specifically a machine I guess, might just respond to you better than any other person who's operated it. Or like a game that none of your friends have good luck with, you might just get the hang of it at the first try.
Interesting question - I hope someone else comes along to give their 2c! I think there are "gender" equivalents, though those lines seemfrom my short time reading folks' accounts, to be delineated more by utility and the aesthetics of that utility rather than any projecting of human gender aesthetics onto them.
Though that's not to say that there's really any dispute that the statue of liberty isn't definitely a "she"! Most people have their preferred flavors of person, right? Some people like 'em buff, some skinny, some colored hair, some "Define objectsexual" this or that profession. I know for a fact, for instance, that there is nothing enticing to me about lawyers, or men who drive sports cars.
Likewise, I know for a fact that there's nothing enticing to me about kitchen appliances or musical instruments. To use myself Define objectsexual an example: I thought I was exclusively into off-road SUVs, last year I wound up getting crushes on WW2-era prop planes after having to do a lot of research about them for a long-term project. I felt like I'd spent months with them, in an almost "penpal" type of relationship, and there were a small handful whose specs I wound up knowing down to the last nut and bolt.
I never thought I could be into planes - they looked too much like ugly whales to me.
