Do you think people that are born blind get horny?

Just a deep thought while I try to go to sleep I'm a bit stumped on this one.

As long as they still have a sense of touch, yes.

I wonder how people who have been blind from the very start picture people. I guess they can gouge a sense from physical touch.

I think feeling horny is a hormonal thing, not necessarily dependent on sight (though sight might trigger it).

Good question, btw, really good stuff :D

Yeah I've always kind of wondered that.

But even gauging it based on touch, how do you mentally picture it if you've never seen, for example, a square. I mean you tell someone what a square is, a shape with four sides of equal length, and you tell them to visualize it, they're like "Hmmm OK I can 'see' that in my head" but could a blind [from birth] person "see" that in their mind? Can a blind person actually visualize?

Or color. What color is green? It's the color of leaves, you might tell them. OK, but how is that helpful? You can't see leaves therefore you can't see color. So maybe you tell them "Oh well it's such and such photons being absorbed and reflected along this wavelength blah blah blah" and that is informative but also equally pointless I reckon.

Yeah, but he wasn't born blind if I remember correctly.

They have hormones? Then they get “hor”ny. Although what a curse it must be not to be able to witness the beauty of the human form in its prime on both sides.

People who have never seen food or water still get hungry and thirsty...

True but people don't need sex to stay alive.

Depends on who you ask... :)

But seriously, it's still a basic human impulse. It's an instinct in all animals for the survival of the species and with very few exceptions every human on the planet has this impulse to some degree or another.

Also, at the risk of pointing out the obvious humans have five basic senses, and the one you are talking about someone being without isn't the one that is most directly related to sex. Touch is at the top of that list, with sight and smell coming right after. The things someone who was born without sight might be attracted to would probably be different. Hair color likely wouldn't be a big factor for someone who can't see it, but how someone smells, feels, sounds, are all parts of attraction. Unless your experience with "sex" is exclusively looking at pictures on the internet this is something that should be apparent.

You should probably be questioning why it is that you can't fathom being horny without seeing something.

Havnt any of your other senses triggered you to be horney?

Smell, hearing and touch can all do it.

Would you have problems keeping a boner if you were having sex in the dark ?
