    The touch-repulsed flag

    Some individuals may be repulsed by the idea of personally engaging in sensual activity, while feeling favorable or indifferent towards sensual interaction that does not involve them or sensual interaction as a concept. The term touch-averse may be used to describe this experience.

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

    Some individuals may feel repulsed towards sensual interaction due to trauma or exhaustion. The term touch-drained may be used to describe this experience.

    Touch-repulsed individuals may also identify as apothisensual.
