Cosmopolitan (Philippines) - - Love, Lust & Other Stuff -

Um, no. “There are ba­si­cally two kinds of routes to sex­ual arousal: the sheer lust route and the ro­man­tic route,” says An­thony Bo­gaert, PHD, au­thor of Un­der­standin­ga­sex­u­al­ity. If you don’t ever get the hots for a cute stranger or if shirt­less James Reid doesn’t make you want to take a cold shower, it could be that you lean to­ward demi­sex­u­al­ity, an off­shoot of asex­u­al­ity. Demi­sex­u­als only feel sex­ual at­trac­tion to some­one when there’s an emo­tional bond first, and hey, that sounds pretty darn ro­man­tic, right? Think about it this way: Tak­ing your time to re­ally know some­one be­fore you get it on can make sex— when you’re ready to have it—even hot­ter!
