Demisexuality is a sexual orientation where people only experience sexual attraction to folks that they have close emotional connections with. In other words, demisexual people only experience sexual attraction after an emotional bond has formed. For some demisexual people, it may be friendship — including platonic friendship. They might not necessarily love the person — whether romantically or platonically — at all. Wait, why does that need a label?
