Demisexual

Demisexual

(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.

The Demisexual Flag - An adaptation of the asexual flag to specifically represent demisexual people. A flag with a black triangle on the left pointing toward the center with three horizontal stripes: top to bottom: white, dark purple, and grey. The black arrow represents the wider asexual community, the grey representing the grey-asexuality community, with the white representing sexuality and the purple representing community.
