Hey guy, gals and non binary pals! Today is the third day of Asexual Awareness Week. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you can click here. The posts from the previous two days are here and here.
Today we’re moving on to freysexuality.
Before we begin, can I just say that while I was editing this post I found that I had misspelled freysexual many times, putting fraysexual instead. I think I have corrected all of them, but if you see a misspelling just let me know and remember that it’s frey not fray.
Freysexual: Someone who experiences attraction to someone until they actually meet them.
This means that they may just want to admire their crush, rather than actually have sex with them. Freysexuality is the opposite of demisexuality, so, while demisexual people would find one night stands completely non-nonsensical, a freysexual person may find that that is the only way they feel attraction to people.
Remember that asexual people can experience romantic attraction (although not all do), so while one night stands may work for some freysexual people, others will want a relationship but without the sex after their attraction fades.
As you’ll see as this week goes on, there are many variations of each identity. In terms of freysexual, the variation is how quickly the attraction fades. Some people may experience attraction until they talk to the person they’re attracted to and for others, it may take a few weeks for their attraction to fade. Some people it is exactly the opposite of demisexuality, so their attraction fades once a bond is formed.
The freysexual flag contains blue, cyan, white and grey in horizontal bars, similar to the asexual flag
The blue and cyan represent less familiar relationships
The white represents a lack of attraction
The grey represents the grey area in between and the confusion that freysexual people feel when their feelings disappear.
