Deleted Member Posted April 30, 2013 Earlier today, I saw the above word on the web. Somebody defined it as including consenting non-humans. That would exclude, animals, then, but include alien races. That was how it was defined. I have been looking up things on different "sexual orientations" recently and wondered last week if there might be one that describes an attraction to fictional characters. I often use my writing as a way to escape the real world. I can relate far better to a character I've written than to a person I know in real life. Something to ponder.
