what if adult damian goes by damian al ghul ibn al xu’ffasch wayne
Okay so the aro ace spectrum really is a goddamned spectrum and it’s expanding every day it seems like. Individuals are coming up with new terms to define certain ace or aro attractions and it’s really cool in my opinion! Like, in contrast to other orientations that define WHO one is attracted to, ace and aro orientations define HOW someone is attracted to (an)other individual(s).
So me personally, I like to deal with things in lists for organisation. This is why I did the pronoun lists a while back! So I’m doing something similar for all aromantic and asexual identities I know of right now. I know many people are uncomfortable with automatically group aro and ace orientations together but they do overlap a lot seeing as they both describe how someone is attracted to others with the difference being sexually vs. romantically. So hopefully this isn’t a big issue, otherwise I’ll change it up and make two separate posts.
Asexual: Experiencing no sexual attraction
Demisexual: Experiencing sexual attraction only after a close bond has been formed
Grey-asexual: Experiencing sexual attraction rarely or infrequently
Akoisexual: Experiencing sexual attraction but having the feelings fade after the feelings are reciprocated. Akoisexual can also be further defined as not caring if the feelings of sexual attraction are reciprocated or not
Reciprosexual: Experiencing sexual attraction only after realising someone is sexually attracted to you
Kalossexual: Desiring a sexual relationship but never feeling sexual attraction towards anyone.
Requiessexual: limited or no sexual attraction/interest/activity due to some form of emotional exhaustion. Emotional exhaustion may be the result of previous sexual endeavors and past experiences dealing with sexuality, or from something else just as emotionally draining.
