Vegansexuals is a term that refers to vegans who only have intimate (i.e. sexual) relationships with other vegans.
Here’s a definition from Urban Dictionary:
Extremely compassionate, passionate, and sexy people who engage in sexual acztivities with people don’t consume animals or anything that comes from an animal. They believe that engaging in sexual activities with omnivores is hypocritical, especially since they live to keep their bodies’ free of all and any animal biproducts; which are technically in any omnivore’s bodily secretions.
I can understand this idea – and I’ve been married to a vegan for over a decade. Some people claim that vegans smell different than meat-eaters. This makes sense, since what we put in our bodies affects the way we smell and the way we look.
But, I don’t think I would follow this. There are just too many non-vegans in the world to wait for the right vegan to come along.
I wasn’t a vegan when I met my wife. I was vegetarian, but she was vegan. Over time I became vegan and now would never think of going back to being a vegetarian, let along a meat eater. If she had wanted to wait to find the perfect vegan she would have overlooked me and we never would have started our wonderful relationship.
There are a lot of great, caring, kind, and compassionate meat-eaters out there. They just haven’t realized that eating meat is inconsistent with their ideals. There are also many more issues than animal rights in the world, and some people may focus on other issues. Being in a relationship with someone like this could bring them closer to veganism, while at the same time opening you up to awareness of other issues, issues you may not have considered before.
