What is Demisexuality?

Welcome back to Terminology Tuesday. This week I will be explaining demisexuality.

Someone who is demisexual does not feel sexual attraction toward someone unless there is an emotional connection. Demisexuality is not too uncommon of an identity, though many do not know the term exists.

A common misconception is that those who are demisexual are sexually attracted to everyone they develop a stronger connection with. But, as with all identities, this is not true.

If you want to add to the discussion or ask a question, feel free to leave a comment, Tweet at Beneath The Identity, or contact me directly.
