Malasexual is a term where one's orientation is influenced by one's maladaptive daydreaming or another similar condition. For example, a malasexual individual might feel pansexual normally but may feel asexual when maladaptive daydreaming. Malasexual can be an orientation on its own or it can be combined with other terms. For example, a malabisexual individual is someone who is only bisexual when daydream or in their daydreams.
Maladaptive daydreaming describes a condition where someone regularly experiences daydreams that are intense and highly distracting — so distracting, in fact, that they may stop engaging with the task or individuals in front of them.
The prefix “mala” comes from the term "maladaptive".
