Difference Between Arousal and Sexual Attraction?

Recommended Posts

Is there a difference between arousal caused by a person and sexual attraction to a person?

Can you be aroused by someone doing a certain thing to you without being sexually attracted to the person themselves?

 

This may seem like an obvious or ridiculous question, but I'm genuinely curious.

@SweetTart Well, arousal is a physical response, and yes, I believe one can be aroused by a person without feeling sexual attraction to them. Arousal may be a part of sexual attraction, but the two aren't necessarily linked. I hope I have helped clear some confusion.

If you actively want to have sex with a person then that's sexual attraction. If you're just aroused but have no interest in actually having sex with them and would turn them down if they offered, then that's just a biological response your body is having to them, but it's not actually sexual attraction. Hope that helps :)
