‘Demisexual’ is most likely an unfamiliar term to you, however it is quickly on the rise, as more and more young adults identify themselves as one. Demisexual’s exist on the fluid spectrum of asexuality. Asexuals often have minimal sexual activity or none at all.
However, demisexuals are characterised by a lack of sexual attraction toward any one person unless they become deeply emotionally or romantically connected with a specific person or persons. The level of connection it takes for sexual desire to form is dependent on how close the relationship is, rather than an initial attraction.
Many online forums have been created for demisexuals to share their experiences and obstacles. Up until this point, people who have felt this way have been very confused about their sexuality, and the definition of this term has provided some clarity.
