Kourtney Kardashian recently revealed that she is an "autosexual." But what does that mean?
The star of Keeping Up With The Kardashians has been in the spotlight for two decades. The older Kardashian and her sisters branched out from reality TV. Still, Kourtney was always a bit different.
KUWTK Is One Of The Most Successful Reality TV Shows In History
The show followed Kardashian -Jenner family through thick and thin. Divorces, cheating, sisters clashing, there was never a dull moment in sight.
One of the most intriguing parts was Caitlyn Jenner's transition. However, not all the topics were as educational and emotional as Caitlyn's story.
Some of the best storylines included Kourtney and her ex-partner, father of her three children, Scott Disick.
It is no secret that the show started after the infamous sex tape came to light. But, Kim Kardashian became a businesswoman and fashion mogul, and her sisters are just as successful.
Kendall is a supermodel, and Kylie Jenner, the youngest of the bunch and mom of two, is the CEO of a billion dollars worth beauty brand.
Khloe's love life had its ups and downs, but that did not stop her from creating a jeans line.
Now, let's talk about Kourtney.
Evolution Of Kourtney Kardashian
Once relatable, Kourtney, in recent years, showed her wilder side.
She was always the most informed and health-conscious, with one goal - to be the best mom to her kids.
Kourtney and therapist Casey Tanner wrote an article on what it means to be "autosexual." Not many were happy about learning something new.
Some comments were simply about overexposure, while others were quite nasty.
It is no secret that the Kardashians are the family we love to hate.
"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."
"While mas**rbation is an example, autosexuality may extend beyond sexual behavior to include feeling a longing or desire for oneself."
On her website, Kourtney wrote more about auto sexuality, citing that "wearing sexy lingerie," "doing your hair and makeup so that you feel good and turned on," and "washing yourself lovingly" in the bath are the signs of being autosexual.
The two ladies added in the article:
"It could mean dancing in the mirror in a cute outfit. If feeling sexy independent of someone else has ever turned you on, that's autosexuality, and it's totally normal."
To understand auto sexuality further, they wrote:
"When we know how to turn ourselves on, we depend less on environmental cues to move us into a sensual headspace."
"When we look at or fantasize about ourselves, we are in touch with our bodies and senses. Getting turned on by oneself does not mean you think you're better than other people, that you're selfish, or that you're not attracted to your partner(s). Rather, it's one additional tool in your box for sparking desire and passion."
Though we did not know the term, it sounds logical and even empowering to us. What do you think?
