Demisexuality is a sexual orientation where people only experience sexual attraction to folks that they have close emotional connections with. In other words, demisexual people only experience sexual attraction after an emotional bond has formed.This emotional bond isn’t necessarily love or romance. For some demisexual people, it may be friendship — including platonic friendship. They might not necessarily love the person — whether romantically or platonically — at all. Our orientation describes who we’re attracted to. Demisexual people experience attraction to a select group of people. You might wonder, “But don’t many of us wait to feel an emotional connection to someone before having sex with them?” Yes, many people do choose to only have sex with people they have a bond with — whether it’s marriage, a committed romantic relationship, or a happy and trusting friendship. The difference is that demisexuality isn’t about having sex. It’s about the ability to feel sexual attraction to specific people.You can be sexually attracted to someone without having sex with them, and you can have sex with someone without actually feeling attracted to them. Demisexual people aren’t simply people who decide to date someone for a long time before having sex with them. It isn’t about deciding to have sex, but rather feeling sexually attracted to someone. Tune in and learn all about demisexuality!
