“My wife gets turned on by shopping. It seems she’s buy-sexual”

"Buy-sexual” (or “buysexual") is a shopping pun on the word “bisexual.” “The most accurate way to describe her sexuality is to state that it is inextricably linked to her commercial impulses.In other words, she’s buysexual” was posted on the newsgroup Google Groups: alt.fan.sailor-moon on October 16, 1997. “Buysexual—Someone who gets turned on by, or derives sexual pleasure from, shopping, or being taken shopping” was entered in the Urban Dictionary on December 19, 2009, and “Buy-sexual—Someone who gets turned on by, or derives sexual pleasure from, shopping, or being taken shopping” was entered in the Urban Dictionary on April 22, 2010.

“Buy-sexual” is often made into a shopping joke. “I’m a buy-sexual, because I prefer shopping to sex smile” was posted on Twitter by ESSE on June 25, 2010. “My wife seems to be turned on solely by shopping. I think she’s buy-sexual” was posted on Twitter by Robin Flavell on October 1, 2010. “My wife reaches multiple orgasms whenever she’s out shopping. I think she’s buy-sexual” was posted on Twitter by Bob Kostic on September 25, 2014. “My wife gets turned on by shopping. It seems she’s buy-sexual” was posted on Reddit—Dadjokes on March 27, 2019.

Well, no.  What I think the original poster was suggesting was that, since in the episode where Katze is cured of her evil ways that one of the ways that Chad “earns his keep” at the temple is carrying around things that Raye has gained through shopping, the most accurate way to describe her sexuality is to state that it is inextricably linked to her commercial impulses.

In other words, she’s buysexual.

If she’s getting it at the mall, perhaps she’s BUY-sexual.
