Vegans say "no" to meaty sex
Vegans are saying "no" to sex with meat-eaters, according to latest reports.
New Zealand researchers have found that vegans are not only refusing to consume meat or animal products, but are now refusing sexual contact with those who do enjoy a nice bit of meat.
Annie Potts, co-director of the New Zealand Centre of Human and Animal Studies at New Zealand's Canterbury University, said she coined the term vegansexuals during her research.
She said she discovered the vegansexuals while interviewing 157 vegetarians and ethical consumers for a study.
One vegan told the researchers that while she found non-vegans attractive, she would not want to be physically close to them.
"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," she said.
