The fraysexual flag.

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.

Fraysexual can be a sexual orientation on its own or can combined with other orientations. For example, one could be fraysexual and gay, meaning that when one does experience sexual attraction it is only towards individuals of the same gender.

Fraysexual individuals, after losing their sexual attraction, can still have sensual attraction for a individual.

The romantic counterpart to fraysexual is frayromantic.
