About Erotic Intelligence (Erotic IQ)
Erotic intelligence (Erotic IQ) can be defined as the ability to understand one's own and other people's erotic capabilities, to discriminate between different erotic prototypes and label them appropriately and to use erotic information to guide thinking, relating and behaviour. Erotic intelligence also reflects abilities to join intelligence, sexuality and emotions to enhance interpersonal relationships and understanding of interpersonal dynamics.
Specific Erotic intelligence models address the ways in which sexual and erotic awareness apply to relationships and sex. For example, erotic prototypes may interact with thinking and allow people to be better decision makers in their relationships. A person who is more responsive erotically to crucial issues will attend to the more crucial aspects of his or her life. Erotic Intelligence also related to emotional reasoning and understanding in response to the people, environment and circumstances one encounters in his or her day-to-day life and relationships.
Jaida Love states that Erotic IQ is the ability to perceive Sexual signals, integrate erotic responses to facilitate thought, understand emotions and to regulate erotic energy to promote personal growth. The aptitude-based model views sexual and erotic intelligence as useful sources of information that help one to make sense of and navigate their social environment. The model proposes that individuals vary in their ability to process information of a sexual or erotic nature and in their ability to relate sexual or erotic processing to a wider cognition. This ability is seen to manifest itself in certain adaptive behaviours. The model claims that Erotic IQ includes four types:
Perceiving Eroticicism – the ability to detect and decipher Erotic responsiveness in faces, body language, sounds, voices, and energy—including the ability to identify one's own erotic responses. Perceiving Erotic Responsiveness represents a basic aspect of Erotic IQ, as it makes all other processing of Erotic information possible.
Using Erotic IQ – the ability to harness erotic energy to facilitate various cognitive activities, such as cognition and problem solving. The Erotically intelligent person can capitalize fully upon his or her changing sexual and erotic responses in order to best relate within a relationship.
