Asexuality is a spectrum
An asexual person is someone who experiences little to no sexual attraction and/or sexual desire. This doesn’t mean that asexuals are incapable of having sex — it’s possible to have sex with someone without feeling sexually attracted to them.
Asexuality is a spectrum and includes a broad spectrum of asexual sub-identities.
Some common sub-identities include:
Demisexual: People who only experience sexual attraction after they form a strong emotional connection with another person.
Greysexual/Grey-A/Grey-Ace: People who identify somewhere between sexual and asexual.
Queerplatonic: People who experience a type of non-romantic relationship where there is an intense emotional connection that goes beyond a traditional friendship.
Reciprosexual: People who only feel sexually attracted to someone who is sexually attracted to them first.
Akoisexual: People who can feel sexual attraction but don't want those feelings to be returned by whoever they’re attracted to.
Aceflux: People whose capacity for sexual or romantic attraction changes over time.
Aro-ace/Ace-aro: People who identify as a both asexual and aromantic.

Asexual vs Aromantic
“Asexual” and “aromantic” are different things. Asexual people don’t experience sexual attraction, and aromantic people don’t experience romantic attraction.
Some people identify as both asexual and aromantic (as aro-aces/ace-aros). However, identifying with one of those terms doesn’t mean you identify with the other.
