Chameleosexual is a sexual orientation wherein someone wishes to be treated as a woman when interacting sexually with men and as a man when interacting sexually with women. It may used interchangeably with placiosexual and iamvanosexual referring to when one prefers to receive or perform sexual acts based on the gender of their partner, for example desiring to perform sexual acts on women, but not receive them, and desiring to receive sexual acts from men, but not perform them. It can also be interpreted as being similar to omnistraight.
The romantic counterpart to chameleosexual is chameleoromantic.
Chameleosexual was coined by Drake Bear Stephen in his book Soul Sex: The Alchemy of Gender & Sexuality.
Stephen's flag was first published in his book, and then uploaded to Tumblr by user beyond-mogai-pride-flags on January 22nd, 2017. Another flag was created by DeviantArt user twilight-moon-velvet on July 7th, 2018.
