One has taken to Facebook to write: “What the heck is that???”

“That’s a new term to me… sounds pretty conceited,” a second shares.

The 44-year-old elaborates on her new sexuality in her blog post, writing: “Casey Tanner, therapist, writer, and founder of QueerSexTherapy, helped us define auto sexuality as ‘a trait wherein one is turned on by engaging in their own eroticism’.”

The article continues: “A prime example of this is simply women in general.

“While it may not be true for everyone, we generally feel more sexual and turned on when we feel we ourselves are sexy. But it’s not just about the ladies.

“While m*****bation is the most obvious example, auto sexuality may extend beyond sexual behaviour to include feeling a longing or desire for oneself.

“It can also be the ability to turn oneself on through looking at, visualising, touching, or smelling oneself.”

Kourtney adds: “It could mean washing yourself lovingly in the bath and genuinely enjoying your body.

“It could mean dancing in the mirror in a cute outfit. If feeling sexy independent of someone else has ever turned you on, that’s autosexuality, and it’s totally normal.”

On, the term ‘autosexual’ is defined as ‘a term for sexual attraction to oneself, especially a preference for m*****bation over s**ual intercourse’ – and a dating expert has spoken to IGV, revealing the five signs you yourself may identify as autosexual.

It adds that ‘experiencing romantic feelings towards oneself is called autoromantic’.

However, some fans have admitted that this coming out is not exactly a surprise.

One writes: “Does that come as any surprise? They are all so in love with themselves I wouldn’t be surprised if they all identified as such.”
