Ansthetic, also known as a-aesthetic, nonaesthetic, or anaesthetic, is a form of attraction where one does not feel aesthetic attraction. One can still be romantically or sexually attracted to someone (or even both), but their attraction does not revolve around one's appearance.
One may abbreviate the term anaesthetic to anae, nonaesthetic to nonae, and a-aesthetic to aae; one may abbreviate the ansthetic spectrum to ae-spec.
One of the earliest known uses of the term "aesthetic attraction" among asexuals was in 2005 on the AVEN forums. Since then, it has commonly been included in lists of subtypes of attraction. It is unknown when nonaesthetic attraction was brought up.
FANDOM user TheEightChaosEmerald created a second nonaesthetic flag on January 12th, 2021. The black, grey and white colours represent a lack of attraction; yellow represents human connection; pink represents aesthetic attraction; and the shades of maroon represent diversity.
