Fraysexual, also known as ignotasexual, is a sexual orientation on the asexual spectrum describing when someone only experiences sexual attraction towards those that they are not deeply connected with and lose that attraction as they get to know the individual.
Fraysexual is often described as being the "opposite" of demisexual, where sexual attraction only appears once a bond is formed. For an individual who experiences fraysexual attraction leading into demisexual attraction, the term vallissexual may be appropriate.
Fraysexual can be a sexual orientation on its own or can combined with other orientations. For example, one could be fraysexual and pansexual, meaning that when one does experience sexual attraction it is towards individuals of all genders, no matter what.
Fraysexual individuals, after losing their sexual attraction, can still have sensual attraction for a individual.
The romantic counterpart to fraysexual is frayromantic.
Flag & Symbol
Blue and cyan are meant to represent strangers or acquaintances. With blue being the complementary color to red and yellow, which symbolize romantic and platonic love. The white stripe represents a lack of attraction. The grey stripe represents confusion about sexual attraction.
The symbol was created to be a counter to the demisexual symbol with the sector being cut out. A line was added through to prevent an over-similarity to the popular video game character PAC-MAN. Both were made by wiki user WiiFyneLM. This symbol was created 26th October 2021.
The prefix fray- comes from the Old English word for stranger.
