Poosh, Lifestyle Based Website By Kourtney Kardashian Talks About Autosexuality
Therapist Casey Tanner explains the term autosexuality as “a trait wherein one is turned on by engaging in their own eroticism”. The written piece on Kourtney’s website explained the details about the actions counted as autosexuality. “A prime example of this is simply women in general. While it may not be true for everyone, we generally feel more sexual and turned on when we feel we ourselves are sexy. But it’s not just about the ladies,” it explained.
However, Tanner also explains that being an autosexual is more like a spectrum that’s built by many minute actions and reactions to one’s body. “While masturbation is the most obvious example, autosexuality may extend beyond sexual behavior to include feeling a longing or desire for oneself,” Tanner explains. “It can also be the ability to turn oneself on through looking at, visualizing, touching, or smelling oneself.”
She adds, “like most human characteristics, autosexuality is a spectrum—and the majority of us are on it! Some may identify as exclusively autosexual, in which case they might consider autosexuality their sexual orientation. Most people, however, incorporate autosexuality into a larger sexual repertoire that also includes being turned on by partnered sex.”

Moreover, she explained that simple actions like dressing up for oneself and feeling sexy by wearing lingeries are counted as autosexual activities. These characteristics are not dependent on a partner and whether that person notices your efforts. On the other hand, it includes activities like washing your body lovingly while bathing. The gist of it all lies in the fact that the things people do for themselves regardless of the opinions or reactions of others or any specific person.
However, Casey Tanner also addressed other aspects of this characteristic. “Many folks resist auto sexuality, fearing that it’s narcissistic or might detract from partnered sex. In reality, autosexuality can be a healthy, even valuable part of your sex life,” Tanner counters. “Embrace loving yourself! Embrace turning yourself on!”
