Noncopesexual is where an individual feels sexual attraction but is unable to cope with it or unable to act upon it. This inability or unwillingness to participate could be caused by many things, including but not limited to:
- Anxiety regarding the act itself, the individual's own body or of "performing" well
- Finding it difficult to initiate or participate in intimate activities in general
- Anticipation of disappointment in the act, causing disinterest in acting on attraction
- Anxiety or fear felt in regards to consequences of sexual experiences (ex: pregnancy, STDs, etc)
The romantic counterpart is noncoperomantic.
The noncopesexual flag has cyan and green stripes because they are the opposites of what are considered the sexiest colors (red and magenta). The flag still has a stripe of black because those who are noncopesexual still experience attraction, they just aren't able to cope with it. The flag was created on December 27, 2020, by FANDOM user Calamity Call.
