Q: How does one actually experience sexual attraction? Is it like a mind-genitals connection or something?
From what I’ve seen in cartoons, sexual attraction is usually indicated by the presence of one or more of the following symptoms:
- Eyes protruding a significant distance in front of the head.
- Jaw dropping to the floor and tongue rolling out, with both stretching to several times their normal size.
- Hallucinations of hearts and/or small flying creatures armed with bows and arrows.
- The heart being thrust forward, out of the chest, where it beats furiously for several seconds.
Despite all of these symptoms involving abnormal movements of the body, subjects never seem to indicate distress or pain when they occur.
In other words, I have no idea. Never felt it, and everyone who’s explained it seems to explain it in a different way. I’ve heard it described as a “pull” or a “thirst”.
