'Vegansexuals' Do It With Each Other
Study Says Vegans Find Meat Eaters Sexually Repulsive
(http://abcnews.go.com/US/story?id=3437736&page=1)

Vegans, a new study has found, are grossed out by sex with meat eaters, and some so-called "vegansexuals" only want to roll in the alfalfa with other super strict vegetarians.

A recent study conducted in New Zealand found that vegans — notoriously finicky eaters who don't eat meat or animal byproducts, like eggs and dairy — don't like the idea of swapping spit (or anything else) with those who have been dining on flesh.

Annie Potts, a researcher at the University of Canterbury's Centre for Human-Animal Studies, noted that vegans, particularly women, found sex with meat eaters disgusting.

Vegans, she told ABC News.com from New Zealand, don't like sex with carnivores, for personal reasons: "They're attracted to people with similar interests;" ideological reasons: "they see meat eaters' bodies as being composed of the lives of others;" and sexual reasons: "they didn't want to engage in intimate sex ... because of the smells and tastes of their body fluids."

Potts sampled 157 vegans, 120 of whom were female.

All of the women, according to Potts, fell along a continuum. Some expressed discontent with being with meat-eating men, while others would sleep only with other vegans.

"It is totally, totally true," said Janna Cunnigham, a 46-year-old Brooklyn, N.Y., native, about the smells and tastes of carnivores.

"Their body odor is pungent. Their sweat is extremely smelly. Their spit, and all their body fluids, are strong and stinky. Vegetarian people are not so smelly," Cunningham, who has been a vegetarian for 32 years, and a vegan for 10, told ABC News.com.

Cunningham added that she has dated both meat eaters and vegetarians, but would stick to seeing only vegetarians in the future.

While PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, has long advocated people give up meat and go vegetarian, the animal rights group has its misgivings about vegans only sleeping with other vegans.

"Sex is a very effective form of outreach and activism," said Dan Shannon, a PETA spokesman, and 10-year veteran vegan, who thought meat eaters could be converted by their partners.

Shannon said he knew vegans who dated vegans exclusively, but suggested that acting repulsed by the scent of your date probably wasn't the best way to change his or her mind about veganism.

Potts said PETA's attitude differed from what was a very personal sentiment on the part of vegans who participated in the survey.

"PETA is taking a political position by using the bedroom to recruit vegans — this is about intimate relationships."

Potts added that more women responded to her survey than men, but those men who did respond were less likely to be disgusted about having sex with meat eaters.


"As far as I'm concerned, it doesn't matter too much to me," said Mike Hartikka, a 20-year-old vegan from San Diego, who has been in relationships with meat eaters and vegetarians.

But, he says, when it comes to long-term relationships, he would rather be with vegetarians or vegans.

That sentiment is borne out by Potts' research.

"It is really not that unusual that people want to be in relationships with those who they have things in common," she said.

Repulsed is a strong word. I'd never be able to date someone who's all like "Meat with every meal!!" and stinks of it, but I've dated guys who weren't vegetarian and it was fine.

i agree, repulsed is a strong word, but i do have experience with not being able to fall in love with a meat eater (i thought i was defective).
(i also have experience with being repulsed shortly after they had eaten meat)

so the answer isn't yes, but it's definitely not an emphatic no.

That article is three years old and has been discussed to death. But that hasn't stopped the ppk before!

Since going vegetarian (and later vegan), I have not been in a serious relationship with a non-vegan, however I have had sexual relations with non-vegans. For the most part it's no biggie to me (unless they just recently ate meat -- that grosses me out), but I do feel like they taste/smell a little worse for the wear.

That aside, just knowing someone is awesome enough to abstain from animal products immediately makes them uber sexy in my eyes. Just sayin'.

I've only boned one vegan, and he wasn't vegan when we started dating, and we've been dating for four years.

as long as our sexxy times don't involve any meat that isn't already part of our bodies, it's cool.

And if they don't give me any grief about my being vegan, I'm cool with omnis.

To be honest, I find it a bit of a turn off, though it's not really the kind of visceral reaction in the article quotes, more how it reflects their values and such.

On the other hand, I'm in no position to be choosy, so whatever.

She obviously has never crawled into bed with her partner after a tasty dinner full of garlic....

But seriously--definitely prefer vegans/vegetarians, but I'll make exceptions. As long as they don't try to kiss me right after that carnitas taco, blech! As the saying goes, "Vegans taste better." = )

I'd rephrase that... I find vegetarians and vegans sexually attractive. I'm not grossed out by omnis, though.

Yeah that's how I feel. Plus it really depends on the situation. If someone is eating meat or talking about meat then that's gonna be pretty repulsive. But the rest of the time I can definitely be attracted to an omni. Which I suppose is good since I'm dating one. But he'd be MORE sexy if he was vegan, yes.

It's hard to say. My husband wasn't vegan when we met, but is now, so I'm kind of spoiled. In the past I dated meat eaters as a vegetarian, but now I know how nice it is to live with someone who is an adventurous eater and will eat kale chips with me on the sofa.

Would this person enjoy Buffy marathons?

"Repulsive" is a bit strong. But not my first choice works. It's more of a moral issue than a ickiness issue.

Weird, my husband and I were talking about this last night - how there is the very real possibility that we choose our mates in part by how people smell, and that diet can play into that. Of course, I've been with my husband since we were 17 year old omnis and he still smells the same to me 17 years later, so who knows.

I definitely think I would have a hard time with the ethical side of someone who ate animals. It just seems like such an obvious wrongness to me. It's kind of the same as wanting my partner to have similar political beliefs, I guess. I can't imagine a husband who was pro-life, either.

When my ex-husband stopped being vegetarian I think he was binging on chicken. His scent changed completely, his sweat smelt like shiitake, that really was repulsive :-X

In general I wouldn't be repulsed by someone being a meat eater, not overly keen on swapping spit but if they had really good hygiene habits it would help. It would just make me sad more than anything. I don't judge anyone for eating meat, but it does give me little stabs in my heart when I see someone I really love & respect doing it.
