Get a good understanding of what is Autosexuality and what type of person this is.

Autosexuality refers to an individual’s sexual attraction to themselves. It’s more than just self-love or self-appreciation; it’s a genuine sexual or romantic connection one feels with their own body, thoughts, or feelings. While some might confuse it with narcissism, they are distinct.

Narcissism is a personality trait characterized by excessive self-admiration, whereas autosexuality is a form of sexual orientation. Like other orientations, it describes where one’s sexual or romantic attractions predominantly lie.

For these individuals, this attraction is directed inward. However, identifying as auto sexual doesn’t necessarily preclude feelings for others. It’s just another facet of the rich spectrum of human sexuality.
