‘Yes please! But not with you carnivores’

Talk about taking the term ‘you are what you eat’ a little too far.

A new phenomenon among vegetarians in New Zealand takes a very extreme stance on that concept, because apparently an exchange of body fluids with meat eaters would violate the philosophies of Veganism.

Annie Potts from Canterbury University in New Zealand has coined the term “Vegansexual” to describe people, “who do not eat any meat or animal products, and who choose not to be sexually intimate with non-vegan partners whose bodies, they say, are made up of dead animals.”

In her research she quizzed 157 Kiwis on issues ranging from battery chickens to sexual preferences.

New Zealand media reports:

Many female respondents described being attracted to people who ate meat, but said they did not want to have sex with meat-eaters because their bodies were made up of animal carcasses.

“It’s a whole new thing – I have not come across it before,” said Potts.

One vegan respondent from Christchurch said: “I believe we are what we consume, so I really struggle with bodily fluids, especially sexually.”

Another Christchurch vegan said she found non-vegans attractive, but would not want to be physically close to them.

“I would not want to be intimate with someone whose body is literally made up from the bodies of others who have died for their sustenance,” she said.

Christchurch vegan Nichola Kriek has been married to her vegan husband, Hans, for nine years.

She would not describe herself as vegansexual, but said it would definitely be a preference.

She could understand people not wanting to get too close to non-vegan or non-vegetarians.

“When you are vegan or vegetarian, you are very aware that when people eat a meaty diet, they are kind of a graveyard for animals,” she said.

  1. This is not news. For a long time I would not date or have sex with carnivores. Meat eaters have “death breath” that is not “bad” breath, but they smell like they eat dead animals. They also have a different smell about them, and I have to admit, their semen tastes a lot more acidy than that of vegans.

    But when Mr. or Ms. right (or both) come along, you never know what kind of a body they will live in or what kind of principals they will follow. As long as you know you are doing the right thing and you respect each other’s choices … everyone is at a different point in their journey.

  2. So… do vegans swallow….?

  3. Katie… Omnivores, please. Carnivores imply we eat ONLY meat — which we don’t. There are non-meat aspects to our diets as well.

    Not knocking you for your choices, but at least get the terminology correct.

  4. car·ni·vore- 1. an animal that eats flesh.
    2. a flesh-eating mammal of the order Carnivora, comprising the dogs, cats, bears, seals, and weasels.
    3. an insectivorous plant.

    veg·e·tar·i·an – 1. a person who does not eat or does not believe in eating meat, fish, fowl, or, in some cases, any food derived from animals, as eggs or cheese, but subsists on vegetables, fruits, nuts, grain, etc.
    2. of or pertaining to vegetarianism or vegetarians.
    3. devoted to or advocating this practice.
    4. consisting solely of vegetables: vegetarian vegetable soup.

    om·ni·vore 1. An omnivorous person or animal.
    2. One that takes in everything available, as with the mind.

    I’m glad we have cleared the terminology up!

    Wow, just like being back in the 4th grade.

  5. […] said what? The Crazy News Guy on “Vegansexual”: No …Corinne on “Vegansexual”: No …The Crazy News Guy on The meaning of sex: […]

  6. @ Katie re: Semen & Vegans. Isn’t it a little hypocritical to be swallowing since sperm are actually living things? Why is a sperms “life” less valuable than say, a shrimp, or a snail?

    And btw, if somebody has “death breath”, it’s more likely due to poor hygiene as opposed to diet.

  7. Any vegansexual females in Melbourne interested in a vegetariansexual male?? I would love to catch up soon….
