Eriscarnal is a term under the ARCsexual umbrella which describes an individual who is sex-conflicted. Eriscarnal individuals may feel a disconnect between their conscious desires and their subconscious reactions regarding sexual attraction/interaction. For example, one may feel sex-repulsed but still desire a sexual relationship, or one may feel sexual attraction but be repulsed by one's own sexual thoughts.
This term is commonly used within the asexual community, but is not exclusive to this community or sexuality.
The term was coined by Kisten Sadi through WordPress and Tumblr on December 14, 2014.
