The apothisexual flag.

Apothisexual is a sexual orientation on the asexual spectrum. It means someone who is sex repulsed. Those who are apothisexual do not seek out sexual relationships.

Apothisexual is known as a micro-label. Meaning that by saying that one is apothisexual it is implied that one is also asexual. In this case asexual is the primary sexual identity and apothisexual acts as a modifier, making a specific sub-category of asexuals.

The romantic counterpart to apothisexual is apothiromantic.

Etymology Edit

The prefix apothi- comes from the Greek word apothisan, meaning repulsed.
