How many words ending with -phile have sexual connotation? What I do know is that I hear people coining new -philes on a regular basis (less frequently new -philia) and none of the listeners or readers seeming to assume sexual connotations.
The idea was that if you sat down with a perfect stranger and exchanged these 36 questions, you would have shared enough intimate information with them to create a feeling of closeness in just one conversation.
The purpose of the study was to achieve an accelerated sense of intimacy between strangers in only 45 minutes.
