Demisexuality is the sexual orientation of a person who does not experience primary attraction, the physical or sexual attraction, but does experience secondary attraction, deep emotional attraction. Like asexuals, demisexuals often don't have sex due to lack of attraction but they can and some do, when with a person they most likely already have a deep emotional connection with. Demisexuality means lack of physical or sexual attraction but it doesn't necessarily mean lack of sex drive or that demisexuals don't crave companionship or a relationship, that might or might not involve sex. Demisexuals can be aromatic, heteroromantic, homoromantic, biromantic, or panromantic, very much like asexuals can be. On rare occasion a demisexual person can be attracted to someone sexually but usually it is after developing a strong friendship or relationship with that person. This is no way discards someone of their demisexuality and is important to remember.
Friend: Demisexuality? What the heckles is that?

Demisexual person: It's basically sort of like being asexual but with more emotional attraction and also I might have sex if I find the right person and I want to try it.

Friend: Oh, okay, cool.

A demisexual is a type of sexual identity where people do not feel or experience any type of sexual attraction toward their partner unless they form a certain strong emotional connection. This terminology comes from a sexual orientation that is in between sexual and asexual orientations. However, it does not mean that a demisexual has an incomplete or half sexuality. It simply means that without the emotional intimacy, there is no sexual attraction formed. Moreover, the level of intimacy varies from one person to another. It also does not mean that there is no sexuality without the emotional intimacy.
"Why does he insist on not having sex with you?"
"He says that we haven't clicked yet. He says he has to have an emotional connection."
"Oh, does he identify as a demisexual?"
"I guess so."

Demisexuals are characterized by a lack of sexual attraction toward any person unless they become deeply emotionally or romantically connected with a specific person or persons. The level of connection it takes for sexual desire to form is dependent on how close the relationship is rather than initial attraction. It is an orientation that is not chosen.

Demisexuality does not refer to the active restraint or repression of sexual desires or actions.

Demi- is a prefix meaning half. This is used to mean halfway between sexual and asexual. The term originated in the asexual community, specifically within the Asexual Visibility and Education Network (AVEN).
Sexual partner: Hey, I think you are sexy. *aroused*
Demisexual partner: I'd have to reach a higher level of emotional intimacy before I could feel the same way. =\
Sexual partner: Oh, I see. Well, we can do something enjoyable together. =/
Demisexual partner: =D We can bake a cake for now!
Sexual partner: Sure! That's always fun, although we seem to be doing that a lot. =D
Demisexual partner: *squeee! bonding time!*

Demisexuality is a part of the asexual spectrum and is not invalid sexuality. It means that the person is unable to feel sexual attraction to another person unless there is a strong friendship between them. Some people may think that this is just 'hetero people searching for attention' but it really isn't. Demi from greek means half that means yourw halfway asexual halfway whatever-you-are. There are Demi-hetero, demi-homo, demi-bi, demi-pan and so much more.
Person 1: Hey, what was that thing that you wanted to say to me?
Person 2: Well, I'm demisexual.
Person 1: What is that?
Person 2: When you cannot feel sexual attracted to anyone unless you have a strong bond.
Person 1: That's just a hetero with a label. You're trying to be special. Plus if you're right and there is such thing are all heterosexuals sluts?
Person 2: There is a difference between not being able to feel sexual attracted and not wanting to fuck someone from the moment you met them. Please, think before you speak.

An ACTUAL FUCKING SEXUALITY that means I don't wanna fuck every 'hot' celebrity because there's no chemistry. It doesn't mean 'hetero asshole'
Person 1- "Hey, wanna be friends with benefits?"

Person 2- "No thanks, I am demisexual, I'm not attracted to just having sex for the hell of it."

Person 1- "I respect your sexuality and hope that chemistry can blossom between us."
