The requisexual flag.

Requisexual is an orientation on the asexual spectrum. It is defined as someone who has limited or no sexual attraction, interest, or activity due to some form of emotional exhaustion. This emotional exhaustion may be the result of previous sexual endeavors or past experiences dealing with sex, or from something else that is emotionally draining.

There is debate to whether requisexual should only be used by neurodivergent, or disabled a-specs.

Requisexual is known as a micro-label, meaning that by saying that one is requisexual it is implied that one is also asexual, or another ace-spec identity. In this case asexual is the primary sexual identity and requisexual acts as a modifier, making a specific sub-category of asexuals.
