Adjective. Someone who either: experiences little or no sexual attraction, experiences attraction but doesn’t feel the need to act out that attraction sexually, or experiences sexual attraction differently depending on other variables. Many people who are asexual still identify with a specific romantic orientation.

Asexuality is a spectrum that has many other identities under the “ace-umbrella” such as demisexual (someone who may develop sexual attraction to someone after forming an emotional connection) or greysexual (someone who has different experiences with sexual attraction that relate with asexuality, such as infrequent sexual attraction, and more).
