A is for Autoeroticism

🔥FEELING OURSELF🔥


I recently did an Instagram story sharing on how our pleasure can look and sound very different to the limited examples we are given in social media, that we don’t always look polished pretty and perfect (I’ll share it as a post soon). However, I absolutely LOVE getting prettied and sexied-up for myself (or my lovers) to celebrate my sexiness.


I would love to share my experiences of autoeroticism and autos*xualism below.


Ever since my teens I have self-pleasured in front of the mirror whenever I could. It would amplify my arousal by a lot which is one example of both autoeroticism (stimulating myself) and autosexualism (turned on by the appearance of oneself).


When I am single or openly relating i reallllly enjoy the first sexual encounters that I have with lovers, as I am able to experience myself vicariously through their adoration and keen lust for my body. I feel their appreciation and excitement for my juiciness, my curves, my taste and scent. I at times feel more like I am having sex with myself than with another.


While in committed relationships I explore my auto-sexuality by wearing lingerie and dancing in front of the mirror to sensual music. I sometimes also film myself dancing in lingerie, semi or completely naked, creating erotic films or photo shoots to watch later alone for some autoeroticism or with my lover. I have also more than once made out with myself in the mirror.


While the expression of auto-sexuality may sound conceded 😅 it truly is not. It is beautiful and I am so grateful for this appreciation I have for myself. I believe it has helped me to be sexually responsible when intimate with others. I do not rely on them to give me pleasure. I know what I like and how I like it. I can get myself into blissful states and feel empowered in each sexual interaction I have knowing that I am the master of my pleasure.


My experience of auto-eroticism, a thorough and well explored self-Pleasure practice has truly taught me so much about my body. I know it inside out and can access pleasure in scenarios that if I didn’t know my body would otherwise be boring or unenjoyable.

Auto-Eroticism VS Auto Sexualism

Auto-eroticism, also known as self-pleasure or masturbation, is a common and natural form of sexual expression. While it has been a taboo topic in many cultures, the science behind auto-eroticism is fascinating and can shed light on the benefits and drawbacks of this practice.


The act of auto-eroticism involves stimulating one's own genitals, usually to achieve orgasm. This can be done manually or with the use of sex toys, and may involve fantasies or visual stimuli. Despite the stigma associated with masturbation, studies have shown that it is a healthy and normal part of human sexuality.

One of the benefits of auto-eroticism is that it can help individuals learn about their own bodies and sexual preferences. By exploring one's own body, individuals can better communicate their desires and needs to sexual partners, which can improve sexual satisfaction and intimacy.


Additionally, masturbation has been linked to a variety of physical and psychological benefits. Studies have shown that masturbation can help reduce stress and anxiety, promote relaxation, and improve sleep. It may also boost mood and self-esteem by promoting positive body image and self-confidence.


However, there are also potential drawbacks to auto-eroticism. One of the main concerns is the potential for addiction. While there is no scientific evidence to support the idea that masturbation is inherently addictive, some individuals may develop compulsive or excessive patterns of self-pleasure that interfere with daily life or relationships.

Another potential drawback is the risk of injury. Vigorous or aggressive masturbation can cause physical trauma to the genitals, and the use of sex toys can also lead to injury if not used properly. Additionally, individuals who masturbate excessively may experience genital desensitization, which can reduce sensitivity and lead to difficulty achieving orgasm during partnered sexual activities.


Despite these potential drawbacks, the overall scientific consensus is that auto-eroticism is a healthy and normal form of sexual expression. However, as with any sexual behavior, it is important to practice moderation and communicate openly with sexual partners about preferences and needs.


It is also worth noting that while auto-eroticism is a common and natural form of sexual expression, it is not the only way to experience sexual pleasure or intimacy. Partnered sexual activities can also provide many benefits, including increased emotional connection, physical pleasure, and the opportunity for mutual exploration and learning.

In conclusion, auto-eroticism is a fascinating topic that is rooted in science and biology. While it has historically been stigmatized, the scientific evidence suggests that it is a healthy and normal part of human sexuality. As with any sexual behavior, it is important to practice moderation and communicate openly with sexual partners to ensure a safe and satisfying sexual experience.


Auto-sexualism, also known as autosexual or self-sexual, is a term used to describe individuals who experience sexual attraction and arousal primarily towards themselves. While this concept may be unfamiliar to many, the science behind auto-sexualism can provide insights into the diversity of human sexuality and desire.

Firstly, it's important to understand that auto-sexualism is a form of sexuality that falls under the umbrella of asexuality. Asexuality is a term used to describe individuals who do not experience sexual attraction or have a low or absent interest in sexual activity. However, auto-sexual individuals do experience sexual attraction and desire, but towards themselves.

Research into auto-sexualism is still in its infancy, but some studies have suggested that it may be linked to certain personality traits or mental health conditions. For example, a 2019 study found that individuals who identified as auto-sexual were more likely to score higher on measures of narcissism and self-esteem. This may be because auto-sexual individuals feel a stronger connection to themselves and their own bodies, and derive pleasure and satisfaction from exploring their own sexuality.


However, it's important to note that auto-sexualism is not a mental health disorder or pathology. Like all forms of sexuality, it exists on a spectrum, and individuals who identify as auto-sexual may have very different experiences and preferences.


One of the benefits of auto-sexualism is that it can provide a sense of control and agency over one's own sexuality. By exploring their own bodies and desires, auto-sexual individuals can learn about what turns them on and what they find pleasurable, which can lead to a greater sense of self-confidence and satisfaction.


However, auto-sexualism can also present some unique challenges. For example, individuals who identify as auto-sexual may struggle to find partners who can understand and accommodate their desires. This can lead to feelings of isolation and frustration, especially in a culture that places a high value on partnered sexual activity.


Additionally, auto-sexualism may be misunderstood or stigmatized by others who do not share this experience. This can lead to feelings of shame or self-doubt, which can be compounded by the lack of awareness and representation of auto-sexual individuals in media and popular culture.


Despite these challenges, the scientific evidence suggests that auto-sexualism is a valid and natural form of sexuality. It is a unique expression of desire and attraction that may not fit into traditional definitions of sexuality or sexual orientation, but that does not diminish its importance or legitimacy.


In conclusion, the science of auto-sexualism is still emerging, but it offers important insights into the diversity of human sexuality and desire. While auto-sexual individuals may face unique challenges in finding partners or being understood by others, their experiences are valid and worthy of respect. By continuing to research and understand this form of sexuality, we can create a more inclusive and accepting culture that celebrates the diversity of human desire.
