When it comes to dating vegans, you are what you eat. Researcher Annie Potts of the New Zealand Centre of Human and Animal Studies at Canterbury University, coined the term "vegansexuals" in her study "Cruelty-Free Consumption in New Zealand: A National Report on the Perspectives and Experiences of Vegetarians and other Ethical Consumers"
She found that many female respondents described being attracted to people who ate meat, but said they did not want to have sex with meat-eaters because their bodies were made up of animal carcasses. One vegan is quoted "I would not want to be intimate with someone whose body is literally made up from the bodies of others who have died for their sustenance." and other quotes not suitable for TreeHugger. Another Vegan simply noted about other vegans: "They definitely taste a lot better." ::NZ Herald
