Sexuality is a Scale.
We are discussing sexual orientation and identity, not gender; before the Crips stop reading lol.
Gender = how YOU identify with your innermost self
Sexual Orientation = how you are attracted to OTHERS
Sexual Orientation plays a huge part in our relationships with ourselves and others. Incompatibility is a difficult relationship kink to work through. According to Psychology Today, Infidelity is one of the top four reasons relationships fail. Knowing your own sexual orientation can lead you on the right path to finding a partner, even if you prefer unconventional relationships.
Sexuality is best represented on a sliding scale. Think of exclusively heterosexual being on one end, and exclusively homosexual on the opposite end. In between those two points on the scale are small stops. Most humans move between those two points throughout life if they are lucky enough to express themselves.
Here are a few sexual orientations, and how they may have presented themselves while on your own side quest in the game of life.

Have you ever met a woman who isn’t interested in sleeping with someone unless she feels spiritually connected with them?
Demisexual = typically only feels sexual attraction toward a person with whom they have already established a strong emotional bond
Ever wondered why you, yes you, are attracted to the artist formerly known as Prince?
Are you a heterosexual man who is only attracted to cis-gendered women?
Monosexual an umbrella term encompassing all sexual orientations that feel a romantic or sexual attraction toward only one gender
Lola from “She’s Gotta Have It?”
Omnisexual = similar to pansexual and can be used to describe individuals whose sexuality isn’t limited to people of a particular gender, sex, or sexual orientation
Remember Tweet’s hit single “Oops?”
AutoSexual = experiences sexual attraction toward themselves. Sexual attraction ≠ Masturbation. People who are autosexual may also experience sexual attraction to other people.
Sexuality is fluid.
I know these terms seem scary, but its quite simple. Many different people felt the same kind of way about love, so science gave it a name. Sexuality can change based on needs, life experiences or social conditions. You can move from someone who previously required a connection to engage in sex (demisexual), to someone not looking for any connections, just sex (aromantic). You can have a strong romantic love for someone and never form a pathway to sexual desire (asexual). If you have any best friends of the opposite sex, you lightweight already understand this concept.
All I am saying is, if all the above feelings have names, maybe yours does too. ♥
