    Sex-repulsed is a sex stance that describes an individual who is repulsed by the act or concept of sexual interaction. The term is commonly used by asexual spectrum individuals, but is not exclusive to this community or sexuality.

    Sex-repulsed individuals may find sexual activity undesireable, uninteresting, uncomfortable, or generally unwanted. This is not the same thing as being asexual or lacking sex-drive (libido).

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

    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 feel repulsed towards sexual interaction due to trauma or exhaustion. The term sex-drained may be used to describe this experience.

    Sex-repulsed individuals may also identify as apothisexual, ARCsexual, anticarnal,or Inactsexual.

    The term sex-repulsed is sometimes confused with sex-negative. Sex-negative (also referred to as antisexualism) is a political position used by those who are hostile towards sexual expression or sexuality. It is also often used by SWERFs and individuals who are against sex workers or the creation of sexual media (such as pornography).[1] Sex-repulsed individuals are distinct from this idea, as individuals who are repulsed by sexual interaction may still be supportive of others’ sexual freedoms.

    Sex-repulsion is not necessarily related to sexophobia, genophobia, haphephobia, anthrophobia, misanthropy, social phobia, philemaphobia/philematophobia, philophobia, or erotophobia.

    History
