Metrosexual is not a sexuality. It's when a heterosexual man "looks gay".

Seeing as I saw someone have a sexuality flag in their sig I have to say that as an asexual I am a fan of the color scheme even though there's purple in there. Haha.

i like the redone rainbow flag with less colors xD- and the ones with the slightly faded colors
it just seems more relaxing than full blown rainbow if u know what i mean..

I don't know where to put this question, but here seems like a good place. So how many sexualities are there? Off the top of my head, there's gay, lesbian, bisexual, asexual, pansexual, and heterosexual. Are there any more or does that basically cover it?


Questioning.
Omnisexual?

I don't know about those two, but there they are.

There's also:
Metrosexual
Tri-sexual
Objectum-sexual
Glam-sexual
Zoosexual
Sapiosexual
Pomosexual
Autosexual
*****
Androsexual
Sociosexual
Sadosexual
Ehsexual
Buysexual


But I guess those are a little more unknown sweatdrop

adding to this list ehehe

Polysexual
Skoliosexual
Gynesexual

[and yeah, metrosexual doesn't count.]

Most of those terms are too obscure or too specific to warrant actual use. I've never heard of half of them. If you go around using most of those to describe yourself, you'll be spending a lot more time explaining just what the hell you just said.

I'd like to know more about the items that I put in bold. Autosexuals I already know about. Peados and zoos I also know about, but forgive me, I'd like to know less about them. Heh. sweatdrop

Also, androsexual... does that apply to sex or just gender/gender presentation? If so, I'd have to find a proper name for my sexuality.

Androsexual is to either sex or gender. The attraction to either men or masculinity.
Pomosexual is someone who refuses to categorize themselves within sexual social constructs.
Sapiosexual is someone attracted to sapience.
Objectum sexual is someone attracted to inanimate objects.

The remainder sound as if they stem from culture and may not necessarily be commonly or widely recognized, or are other terms worded into a sexuality. Sadosexual is more or less sadism. Glam and buy, from what I could find, are pretty self explanatory, although I don't know if they're actual sexualities or terms that spun off from stereotypes about a particular sexuality that portmanteued to be a word with a -sexuality suffix. Ehsexuality isn't particularly clear, nor is there really any consistent information available concerning it. It either sounds like pomosexual or people attracted to Canadians, from a quick look.


All said and done, I'm all for people loving whatever they want to so long as there's no harm to come from it, but my word, the terminology.

So I'm a straight girl, all for gay GLBTQ rights 100%. I've been meaning to post here to show my support but didn't know if I should since I'm straight. Then I read the opening posts and figured out I'd be welcome.

So...hi! emotion_c8


Hello Melody! Welcome to this thread! I'm a straight ally just like you, and as the other members said before, straight allies are always welcome here.

Ah well then this leaves me in greater contemplation of my self... I'm tempted to just say gynesexual even if I prefer femmesexual.

I'm just counting all of the above. Some people think it infact is some kind of sexuality, some people don't. That's just who they are.

I'm afraid I have to agree with this.
So what if I'm only attracted to financially poor but intellectually wealthy brunette Canadian women with size 6 shoes? Should I come up with a new word or just say lesbian?

But I'm a very binarial person in that regard since I never had trouble identifying within existing brackets so what the hell do I know anyway. rolleyes

I wonder if cis people experience a even tiny bit of GD and if they do, do they know about it? I mean are they aware of it in some way? confused

Ha ha, amusing! 4laugh
Well, I get your point, but I was simply elaborating many options~
Some people want to put everything into small boxes and organize it until you have so many boxes you don't even remember where what is. Some may not even use the main sexualities and just call everyone sexual beings or something... xD
So, there are many ways to define and organize everything in this world. If you choose to do it or not it's up to you, and you may also choose which way to do it.
