Dysphorsexual, or dyssexual, is an identity on the asexual spectrum where one feels sexual attraction, but doesn’t want to participate in a sexual relationship, due to dysphoria or other mental health issues. They may feel repulsed by the idea of being in a sexual relationship. When one transitions or starting feeling happy with their body, one may feel like participating in a sexual relationship, but until then, they don’t want to participate. Cisgender people who have body dysmorphia can also be dysphorsexual, but it is not as common.
A dysphorsexual person might also feel like no one would want to be with them, so one may also feel depressed. Some people might not want someone to feel attraction to them because their dysphoria is so bad.
