DatePerfect Reviews “The Hottest Body Part? For a Sapiosexual, It’s the Brain” by Anna North via The New York Times


We liked hearing a little more about sapiosexual identity in this piece by Anna North. Sapiosexuality had been gaining traction quietly until 2014, when OkCupid added it to their extended sexual preference list. Then the inevitable backlash: “Some say declaring a sexual preference based on intelligence is pretentious, elitist or insulting to people with disabilities.” And then the debate seemed to disappear.

North focuses on the experience of some self-identified sapiosexuals while simultaneously presenting the opinions of those who dismiss or argue against the identity.
