Demisexuality means you can only get sexually aroused when forming a emotional bond with someone. This means that if a demisexual meets a stranger, they typically feel no sexual urges to them. This is one of the reasons why demisexuals usually don't engage in hook-up culture.[1][2][3] Women are more likely to be demisexual than men. Demisexuals tend to promote love in relationships, romanticism and demisexuals are more likely to be prudish. Demisexuals are also more likely to view no strings attached sex as a form of objectification.[4]
