Types of sexual orientation
Asexuality can be considered a lack of sexual orientation as an asexual person feels neither physical nor sexual attraction to any person. They feel lack of attraction or sexual desire by default. It has nothing to do with sexual abstinence.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the American Psychology Association (APA) consider sexual orientation to be a part of a person’s nature. In this case, a gender neutral person is someone who does not identify with any gender. His identity would be identified as null.
An aromantic is a person who does not experience romantic attraction towards other people. These people do not lack an emotional/personal connection with others, but they do not have an instinctive need to develop connections of a romantic nature.
A transgender is a person whose gender does not match the one that was socially assigned to you at birth. Thus meaning that gender neutral, bigender, pangender, androgynous, transexuals or transvestites all fall under transgender.
These are people who are between sexuality and asexuality. It is a more fluid connection between sexuality and asexuality, hence those who identify with this sexual tendency may feel heterosexual, gays or any other sexual identity inside or outside the category of men and women.
Someone who identifies as demisexual does not usually feel sexual attraction unless they have already formed a strong emotional bond with that person. This bond may or may not be romantic.
People with this type of sexual orientation experience attraction towards other people, but they certainly do not have the need to be reciprocated nor do they seek to make the desire reciprocal.
Sapiosexuals are characterized by being attracted by a person’s intelligence. The bond here is intellectual.
Skoliosexuality is the sexual tendency oriented to nobinary genders (men or women), meaning, skoliosexuals are attracted to transgender people (who identify as male, female, both or none, which does not correspond to the genitals they possess) and intergender (their identify is between two genders, usually binaries).
Pansexuality refers to those people who feel they are sexually, emotionally or spiritually capable of falling in love with all genders.
Similar to pansexuality, a polysexual person may be attracted to people of different genders or sexes, but without all the sexes or genders attracting to each other in the same way or at the same level.
In autosexuality, the attraction is towards oneself, as a way of feeding one’s self-esteem. Autosexuals can also be asexual.
Pornosexuality refers to people who only find sexual satisfaction watching pornography rather than real sex.
Antrosexuals do not know their sexual orientation but, despite this, they can develop loving emotions with anyone of any gender or identity. It is like a mixture of demisexuality, bisexuality and pansexuality, provided that the antrosexual does not know what his/her sexual tendency is.
We end with the three main sexual orientations, heterosexuality, homosexuality and bisexuality. Heterosexuals feel sexual or emotional attraction to people of the opposite sex. It constitutes an average sexual majority in certain species.
Homosexuality refers to sexual or emotional attraction to people of the same sex, whether women to women (gay or lesbian women) or men to men (gay).
Bisexuality refers to people who experience physical or sentimental attraction towards individuals of the binary gender, male and female.
