    The original sex-repulsed/averse flag
    Sex-averse is a sex stance that describes an individual who is repulsed by the idea of personally engaging in sexual activity. The term is commonly used by asexual spectrum individuals, but is not exclusive to this community or sexuality.

    Sex-averse individuals may find the idea of personally engaging in sexual activity undesirable, uninteresting, uncomfortable, or generally unwanted. They do not feel the same way about sexual interaction that does not involve themselves, and may feel favorable or indifferent towards sexual interaction as a concept. Sex-averse individuals may be fine with or interested in discussing sexual topics, telling sexual jokes, or consuming sexual media.

    Some individuals may be repulsed by certain sexual acts, while feeling favorable or indifferent towards other sexual acts. The term sex-ambivalent may be used to describe this experience.

    Some individuals may be repulsed by certain sexual acts due to trauma or exhaustion. The term sex-drained may be used to describe this experience.

    Sex-averse individuals may also identify as ARCsexual, apothisexual, Inactsexual, or discarnal.

    Flag

    Sex-averse shares its original flag with sex-repulsed. It was created on January 15, 2018 by Tumblr user beyond-mogai-pride-flags.[1]

    Two alternate flags were created on March 19, 2021 by wikia user Cilantrouble. One features a circled dash, a special defined operation similar to subtraction, representing the similarity to sex-repulsion. It can also be interpreted as being a mix of the repulsed and indifferent pride flags. Another flag features a single tilde, showing similarity to sex-ambivalence. It can also be interpreted as a mix of the repulsed and ambivalent pride flags.

    History

    This term has existed within the asexual community with no clear first coining for many years. The term was recoined for the purpose of providing a concrete source by AnonymousHermitCrab on the subreddit r/asexuality on April 27th, 2022.[2]
