This then lead to dildos and which I had my first true orgasm, the rest was history after that. I began to excalade over the years in my autoerotic behavior by dressing as a woman which extremely truns me on because I know exactly what to wear and do to get and keep me in the mood for sex. I've experienced what I believe to be the purest form of autoeriticism by dressing as a female having sex with myself while video recording it to rewatch while masturbating to what I created.
Once you get to this point it's hard to turn back. In conclusion to my personal story I offer a word of caution. When tampering with sexuality it can be very difficult to return to normacy because the mind adapt to traumatic changes.
I thank you for your article. Sometimes it's easy to think I'm the only one on earth that experiences certain things. Then I remembered the online world where I can find anything. I didn't know what to do when porn started to creep me out and gross me out more and more.
Didn't want to take a shower because I'd need a long long time. Now I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who can't walk by the mirror without stopping to appreciate every bit of myself. I feel so much better about myself now. I'm a guy and I feel horrible every time I spend a few minutes in front of the mirror admiring myself.
I also take nude pics in the mirror and admire myself afterwards. I'm glad to have found an article that explained this in full for me. I totally get this. I get aroused often when I see myself in the mirror in the morning.
I'm a guy with a nice body with many attributes! And nice looking equipment. I love to play around with photography and taking photos of myself and various parts of my body under different lights and situations. I then edit the shots and then review my work. Just this week I took a shot of my body length wise from above in dim light, slightly aroused. In my review I found the shot so hot that I could not let it go and kept going back to it.
Around midnight I took another gander and became so aroused that I just exploded! This is a very interesting article, insightful and sensitively written, your reply here caught my eye as I somewhat relate to it. Only recently discovered that I may be autosexual I'm heterosexual male and have only ever had intimate contact with women.
I got crazily aroused and excited by it Initially I thought I might be bisexual but I don't find any men attractive.
Then I thought I might be transvestite but I don't have any craving to wear women's clothing in my day-today life at all. I only ever do it to satisfy my own lust I surmised that I must be some form of autosexual in that I would make love to myself - if I was a woman, combined with that fact that I only ever fantasised about oral sex with myself in the photos, never anal. I was married 17 years in the past and have had no issues being with other people.
I always feel like I am attracted to anyone, not just one end of the spectrum. I even sometimes talk to myself hehe. Since my divorce however I have exclusively been alone and it doesn't bother me at all. I actually seem to prefer it. This may seem like a rant more than anything else, but I think sexuality is something that people need to be able to talk about I first discovered I was attracted to women when I was around 8 or 9.
At the time I didnt know there was such a thing as liking more than one gender so I placed the label of a lesbian on myself. When I made my way into highschool, I realized I was still aroused by men aswell so I distinguished myself as bisexual. All through growing up, I never thought about my masturbation and sexual habits as bieng anything more than just me bieng young and horny.
As I grew up and explored many different types erotica I found that nothing was quite as effective or satisfying as myself.
I was still turned on by acts with other people but not as much by their body or their gender I get off by getting others off, almost like I feel that I need to share myself and share with others that same enjoyment I'm getting from myself. Like when you tell someone that a recipe you made is amazing and they need to try it. I find that in a way I'm not even physically attracted to people, more just the idea of sex.
As an artist I certainly appreciate the aesthetic side of someone with a perfectly proportioned and well built body or a woman with a perfectly slim waist and round boobs Someone's genitals are not a point of interest to me, in fact I have found it can be a turn off if someone decides they just want to send me a picture of a penis. I would much rather see someone in peak condition butt naked but just so I can stare and be amazed.
Genitals on anyone, to me just seems like something I know I can stimulate to make someone feel amazing and nothing more, no attraction at all. Like I said, sex with another person is not so much about their body for me it's about the feeling of sex alone both physical and emotional.
When it comes to myself though, I love feeling my skin and seeing myself naked and I really get excited for the time I leave aside for myself. It's not just the feel of being touched in the right way it's the touch that's arousing as well, for example sure my hands on my boobs feels good, but the feeling of my boobs in my hands is just as good, where on another woman holding her does nothing more for me than the satisfaction that I know I'm making her feel good.
I feel like it can be difficult to explain myself in this but in short -I am attracted to all of my physical and emotional self as well as aroused by myself -With other people I am not attracted to their bodies, I merely appreciate. I find the only reason I am selective in who I engage in sex acts with would be because of their emotional connection to me and because they are special to me, I share myself. It's hard to put it in words what the internal feeling is, but I've also had many one night stands, and I dont know if it was because I was searching for my sexuality or if it was me showing off in a way, sharing how great a partner I was.
I guess the reason I put this out there, is because now as I am trying to start my life with someone, I truly feel bad.
He feels like he can never be good enough for me because I enjoy sex with myself in a more wholesome way than I do with him. Sex with myself in my mind is everything someone would imagine perfect sex to be, with him and with other past partners there is no attraction, no excitement for their individual body and they feel that I am not fully satisfied by them.
Sex with another person as I said, to me it is special to be with someone other than myself because I have a close connection to them and I feel like I could share what I have, and the arrousal only comes from the feeling or expected feeling.
This is going to sound very self centered, but no one's love and romance will ever compare to the way love and romance between me and myself. Romantically speaking, everyone else will be second best. My love for my partner is still strong but that return of love will never feel the same.
I love him no less than someone should love their partner, in fact in a way I feel that I love more deeply than most because there is no physical attraction there, purely emotional. I just don't want him to feel that he is not enough for me. I'm open to thoughts on my sexuality as well as thoughts on how I should be approaching my relationship with my partner in mind.
There may be sub-types of autosexual persons. I do not believe that "Self love" and "Self admiration" is a definitive or essential trait. The latter seems to have a more narcissistic theme. The limited research I have done on this subject has led to some interesting findings. Some individuals have stated that they have actually fantasies of "making love to ones physical self", in fact, they expressed variations on themes with respect to self cloning.
In some cases, the clone was "a sentient other", and in other cases, both "clones" would be sentient parallels in the latter case could be described as two twins being sexually intimate.
In one case, the fantasy involved two physical bodies sharing a single consciousness, which is a fantastic construct if you give it any thought!
These fantasies may well be a sexual manifestation of a component of narcissism. All that said, in the case of my own autosexuality, there is no self admiration or self love. In fact, I consider myself to be sexually unappealing despite having no concrete evidence to support that idea. It's more of a harsh self-assessment. The main theme has been to invent methods to maximize physical stimulation and the intensity of orgasm. The amount of success I have had in this area has enabled me to quell the otherwise nagging desire for relationships.
I only really want the sexual aspect of relationships and thoroughly do not enjoy the other parts, such as the day to day activities and rituals that are expected. This results in considerable relationship troubles, and relationships that quickly die out after the 'honeymoon period' is over. As far as orgasm intensity goes, I've never been able to have such intense orgasms in partnered sex. Some may consider this to be a problem unto itself, but in my case acceptance of this has been more-so beneficial.
I think autosexuality is going to see a sharp increase as more and more people decide to opt out of conventional pair-bond relationships. For many of us, it's far too much work for what we perceive as paltry rewards. Some believe that this is a problem rooted in selfishness, but perhaps that's just shaming language people use to explain something they really don't understand.
It's also possible my own situation is more a case of auto-eroticism, with autosexuality being reserved for those who have "self love" and "self admiration".
The definitions of the words may need clarification. I found this article to be highly informative. I think it'd be easier to experience a one consciousness, two body sexual experience, if we could jack our minds into a computer simulation, or even upload our minds to a computer, or even make a copy of our mind on that computer, insert a chip in our brain to excite the reward centres, and actually make love to ourselves.
I'm just your marginal autosexual, masturbation while fantasizing about others. By the way one can get aroused by nearly anything under the sun, including the sun. Although affected people are very few. You can refer the Wikipedia article "List of Paraphilias". I am a male and I'm I love thin women. I am not aroused by men. I like "ryona" and I'm slightly auto-erotic.
I'm slightly masochistic as well. Note: Ryona is not a form of violent attitude. You can search about Ryona in Google. I was told by my "psychiatrist" that i display a perfect textbook Narcissist, Not like she was the first to tell me; Nor most likely the last. I would never say any of this to anyone in person Ah! The beauty of the Internet! Now, now i know you're probably waiting for my point, welll long story short i find myself to be the most attractive thing i ever have and ever will gaze my ocean-blue eyes upon.
But that being said i still find the human body Not just mine to be the most beautiful thing in the entire universe. My sex life consists of purely women and myself Masturbation. I could never see myself as being gay but if i could clone myself i wouldn't have to stare into a mirror everytime i walk passed one.
Masturbating is slightly more amusing than sex but i love the worship i get from the women i sleep with! I can't speak for auto erotics on here but if you can relate to this you're probably similar to me and not justin Get it? Just an? I love the human body so much i am taking my mothers anatomy course in college next year! I would actually consider myself as autoerotic to a certain extent because I am exclusively a homosexual guy.
Even when I hit puberty and started masturbation at a very young age by the way, I always felt a sense of mysterious sexual attraction to myself. I guess this is because I find male sexuality very very attractive Hence I do believe my own sexuality does arouse me when I indulge in self pleasure. There is nothing wrong with it and I certainly feel no guilt about it. In fact I find it very enigmatic. Nonetheless I do have a very active sex life apart from self pleasure.
I do believe homosexuality is primary a type of differentiated external type of autoeroticism. Male sexuality among homosexual men is something very pure and undiluted in its original form as there is no real compromise in sexual behaviour because does not involve the opposite sex.
This actually makes the sexual encounter very very erotically rich and immensely gratifying. Sex with guy is so pleasurable in some unique way because you really know the male body well, the arousing factors, etc. And it is something like intentionally splitting your autoerotic feeling into two to enhance the pleasure. For an example when you are at 69 position performing and receiving fellatio It is just hard to explain it in words.
In addition, I do believe homosexual encounter is primarily erotic in nature with a smaller sexual element Heterosexual encounter on the other hand is primary sexual with possibly a erotic element depending how it is expressed.
Hence I think autoeroticism is how one would express and explore his or hers sexuality. Likewise homosexuality and its relation to autoeroticism. And there is nothing wrong with it, if fact it adds diversity and makes human sexuality a very enriching experience. Makes being a human both joyful and mysterious At 35, I am still a virgin.
I have only gone on one date with a girl and have never had much inclination to come on to a hot guy. I don't want gay sex and, though I'd like some intimacy, I don't think I'd be emotionally or physically available to make a relationship worthwhile to the other party. In the meantime, until I do or don't ever meet "the one", I masturbate to my own image.
I work out and lose weight to spice up my sex life with myself! Only recently has it dawned on me that the few men I do fantasize about each hold some aspect of perfection I seek to realize myself. The end goal of this perfection, for some reason, seems to be the glory of impregnating a woman in the peak of physical perfection my perfection, not hers.
In these fantasies, the woman's half all but disappears from view and the fantasy is really all about me. So, there is a narcissism about my fantasies-- as well as perhaps some misogyny and domination though not rape fantasy-- Any thought of hurting a woman is a huge turnoff.
