Fictosexual, also known as fictisexual, fictonsexual, fictiosexual, fictionsexual or fictionalsexual, is an umbrella term for anyone who experience exclusive sexual attraction toward fictional characters, a general type of fictional characters, or whose sexuality is influenced by fictional characters.
Some fictosexual individuals experience attraction to certain genders in fiction, but don't experience attraction to said genders in the non-fictional world. For example, one may experience attraction to all genders in fiction, but only experience attraction to women in the non-fictional world.
It is also sometimes an ace-spec identity, as some ace-spec individuals may feel romantic attraction exclusively to individuals whom they could never possibly be in a relationship with, such as fictional characters.
The romantic equivalent is fictoromantic.
