Aporisexual is a similar term or alternative to eriscarnal and sex-ambivalent. It refers to someone who experiences inner conflict about their sexual orientation or acting on it. This may or may not be due to past experiences, trauma, or internalized issues or beliefs. These beliefs may be religious or traditionalist in nature, for example, being attracted to the same gender but feeling conflicted about acting on it due to personal beliefs one was raised in. However, such experiences are not required to be aporisexual. It may also refer to people who desire a sexual relationship or feel sexual attraction, but are sex repulsed.
The term and the flag was created by beyond-mogai-pride-flags on July 12, 2017. The flag's means is as follows: Yellow represents conflict. Gray represents reservation. Black and white represent contradiction. The white may also be seen as “newness” or “hope”, for some aporisexuals who may wish to grow beyond their inner conflict, and for the aporisexuals who accept their reservations about sex and live a fulfilled life, with or without it.
