The iamvanosexual flag.

Iamvanosexual or Accipiosexual is an orientation on the asexual spectrum defined as someone who enjoys having sexual acts performed on them but does not want to perform sexual acts on others. Iamvanosexual people may be sex neutral or sex repulsed when is comes to performing sexual acts.

Iamvanosexuality is not the same thing as simply being selfish, submissive, or having a sexual preference. Someone who is iamvanosexual may be repulsed at the thought of performing sexual acts. This may cause them to lose any sexual desire or attraction. This discomfort may be caused by dysphoria or similar discomfort with one's body, but it does not necessarily have to be.

The opposite of iamvanosexual is placiosexual. Because of san-serif fonts many people have incorrectly assumed that it is spelled Lamvano- (with an L), when it is in fact an uppercase i. Current, Lamvanosexual and iamvanosexual are often used interchangeably.[1]


Iamvanosexual was coined on or before August 21, 2015 by unknown.


The flag was created by pastelmemer on DeviantArt on 2016.[2]
