Pretentious Is Not A Sexual Orientation ‘Sapiosexual’ has to be one of the stupidest sexual ‘identities’ to come along in years. New words with the suffix “-sexual” are like catnip for trendy straight people. In the late ’90s and early aughts, we collectively endured the “metrosexual,” a completely unnecessary term for a man who shaves and dares to have a few pastels in his wardrobe. Enter the “sapiosexual,” which Urban Dictionary defines as “one who finds intelligence the most sexually attractive feature.” Unfortunately, we might not get that lucky. NPR reports that it has since become one of the site’s “most popular new terms.” The history of “sapiosexuality” is as unclear as its legitimacy. Apparently “bisexual guy who’s into smart people” was too many syllables for him to not invent a bogus sexual orientation instead. The American Psychological Association (APA) defines sexual orientation as “an enduring pattern of emotional, romantic and/or sexual attractions to men, women or both sexes.” Thank You!
Décapage mpany presses your ashes into vinyl when you die Music lovers can now be immortalised when they die by having their ashes baked into vinyl records to leave behind for loved ones. A UK company called And Vinyly is offering people the chance to press their ashes in a vinyl recording of their own voice, their favourite tunes or their last will and testament. Minimalist audiophiles might want to go for the simple option of having no tunes or voiceover, and simply pressing the ashes into the vinyl to result in pops and crackles. The company was founded by Jason Leach, who co-founded the techno group and record label Subhead in the 1990s and has since founded a number of other labels, including House of Fix, Daftwerk and Death to Vinyl. Leach explained to Wired.co.uk that there were a number of factors that made him launch the service, including thinking that he was "getting a bit old" and "might not be invincible". How does it work? The site has a very irreverent style and operates under the strapline "live on from beyond the groove".
