(adjective | demisexuality, noun)
Someone who does not experience sexual attraction unless they form a strong emotional connection with another person first. Some may experience romantic attraction, but until the emotional connection is formed, they do not experience sexual attraction. Some individuals experience sexual attraction rarely and/or may have little interest in sex in general. Demisexuality is included under the grey-asexual umbrella, though demisexual people may or may not identify specifically as asexual for a variety of reasons.
e.g. As a demisexual, Hera wished for more representation in TV shows, or at the least, less allosexual fixation in romantic plots.
