What Does It Mean to Be Demisexual?

Demisexuality is a sexual orientation in which sexual attraction is only experienced after developing a close emotional bond with another person. Those who are demisexual do not feel sexual attraction to others based on looks alone, their sexual desire is tied to the level of emotional connection and trust felt with this person. This often takes time and the experience of deep connection to develop.
