I prefer friends and partners who can match my intellect. But, that is just one of my many filters (non-smokers, mild drinkers, etc.).

I don't think that there would be any correlation between sex-drive and IQ. That said, it's not like I have any studies to back up my opinion--it's just a suspicion.

And I love it when the person is saying intellectual stuff or discussions, it turns me on!!

Someone who is turned on by intelligence is called a Sapiosexual.

I have the IQ to put myself in the top percentile, and I have (even at my age and stage) a healthy (i.e. very active) sex drive.

And let me say, for the record, that there is nothing ungodly or sinful about sexual urges. If you believe in a divine Creator--especially one who is omniscient and omnipotent--then you cannot reasonably conclude that any innate characteristic that you present is outside of that Creator's intention. If you believe in God, you must, perforce, believe that God intended you to be as you are, with all of your traits. Being sexually attracted to other people is part of the whole human package.

What can be sinful is how we respond to our urges. Rape and sexual assault are never acceptable actions in response to sexual urges. Using sex as a weapon or as a bargaining chip can be unethical (depends on the circumstances, obviously).

But having sex with another person in the midst of mutual sexual attraction is inherently part of what it is to be human--which is how we were created.

Just gonna pop in and say that being attracted to IQ is really gross and ableist.

I've had a lot of bad experiences with snobby "sapiosexuals".

:/

Calling it gross is your personal opinion. The term ableist is used in regards to disabilities (High IQ is not). Your personal issues with "sapiosexuals" is not the topic. The topic is a question of whether or not high IQ correlates to a lower sex drive. And the general tone of your post reads as rude. Please take more care in future posts.

Personally I have above average intelligence and little to no sex drive. I've never been sure if the two aspects are interrelated.

all people tend to be attracted to folks with a similar IQ to their own. so that would make everyone ableist.
