Play a little free association game and see what words you toss out, out of hand, to define the experience and flavor of your sexuality -- not your sex life, per se, or what sex is life with a given other, but just what it, all by itself, feels like in your mind and body.
I've had people do this exercise before in a workshop or two I've presented, and it tends to be illuminating for some folks, in part because often enough, so few people really think about how to describe their own sexuality.
As an example, here's what I come up with when I do that:
Juicy, bursting Low Deep Inquisitive Ripe Burgundy-purple pomegrantes Tart Ancient Electric Home Dizzy Hothouse flowers Warming Energetic Vibrational Wicked Alto Hungry Button-pushing Trickster Unpredictable Whimsy Humid
