Erosflux or erosfluid is a sexual modifier used to describe someone who fluctuates and/or is fluid between being asexual/ace-spec, allosexual, and hypersexual. This term is similar to aceflux, acespike, and ace-jump however it is more specific as it includes hypersexuality as well.
One with this identity may also be fluid or fluctuate in what genders they are attracted to, and thus also identify as abrosexual, however this is not always the case.
One who is erosflux does not have to fluctuate to being entirely ace; instead, they may just fluctuate to being ace-spec. This term can also be used as a modifier, such as erosvincian, eroslesbian, erosbisexual, etc if one wishes to also incorperate the genders they find attraction towards.
Some examples of why some may find this term useful include, but are not limited to:
- Those who have sexual trauma that effects the strength of their sexual attraction.
- Those within a median system who feel as though their combined sexual desires are best described in this manner.
- Those who have sexual disorders or disabilities that cause their sex drive to spike into higher or lower manners.
- An individual who felt as though aceflux, abro, and similar terms did not fit their experiences correctly as they did not explicitely include hypersexuality.
The term was first suggested by wiki user Hayden000 (specifically Shadow from their system) on May 26th of 2021. Following this suggestion, wiki user Cryptocrew (specifially Catra from their system) agreed that this would be a useful term for both them and her, and decided to officially coin it.
The flag was coined by Cryptocrew, specifically Catra and Ally, on May 29th of 2021. Black stands for asexuality, grey stands for being on the greyace spectrum, white stands for fluidity and fluctuation, orange stands for allosexuality, red stands for hypersexuality, the design is made to resemble swirls in order to represent the consistent change and movement in sexual desire, while the rainbow represents the genders one is attracted to and the spectrum of sexuality as a whole.
The term stems from the Greek God Eros, a God of erotic love, sex, and sexual desire.
