[Ads-l] sapiosexual

I've seen "sapiosexual" used reasonably often at online dating sites for
about 5 years, though what people mean by it varies from "no interest in
anything physical" to "intelligence is a big turn-on for me" (in the latter
sense, usually paired with another identifier like "bisexual" or whatever).

The weird one to me is "asexual" to mean "not interested in sex", as if it
didn't already have a well-established definition.
