    • “Like a bonobo, you’re a pleasure-seeker. You know exactly what you want and have no shame in getting it.”

      Absolutely! First quiz here on AS where there was no hesitation whatsoever which answer I wanted to chose.

  1. I’m a snail! I was a little offended at first, because I’m rather energetic and impatient. But yeah, gender-fluid and adaptive does sound right.

    • M

      same, I can kind of identify with that even though I was a little taken aback at first lol

    • Hahaha, my partner is a snail, too!
      Snail4snail seems to be a very good match, I can say.

  2. I love all of the quizzes! I got penguin, deeply devoted to community and put others first. Sounds about right.

  3. “Like a bonobo, you’re a pleasure-seeker. You know exactly what you want and have no shame in getting it.”

  4. I didn’t expect snail to be an option (lolz) but the description is on point

  5. I was hoping for penguin but dolphins are cool too!

    “These smart sea mammals are known for performing oral sex on each other with their long snouts (sometimes in same-sex pairings). Like a dolphin, you’re goal-oriented, fiercely intelligent and comfortable hanging with a group or flying solo.”

    • Hah, got penguin on my 2nd try. Monogamous and committed to community are definitely me.

  6. “These web-footed friends are known to shack up in same-sex pairings. They are mostly monogamous and sometimes mate for life, and queer couples will even adopt and hatch eggs! Like a penguin, you’re deeply devoted to your lover(s) and your community. You put others first!”

    hell yeah go penguins

  7. I’m a snail.

    Well, I do have a very sensitive skin and don’t do well in the full sun.

    It’s the moss I suspect. But I don’t want to be a snail, I want to be a fairy. :(

    Snail – it me – squishy and supremely vulnerable plus crunchy hard shell

  9. Yasmina

    I honestly feel very seen by this Giraffe result
