What exactly is dark gray?

Recommended Posts

I know what gray sexuality is but I've often seen people talk about being dark gray. What does that mean?

I think it's probably because some gray-sexuals experience sexual attraction even less than others.

Nothing of any importance. Generally it seems to imply that someone has a lower interest in sex than whatever they perceive to be a normal level of interest for other people who identify as grey-a.

One of the fifty (or more) shades of gray?

Probably about 200 shades by now, Dave. :P

For me, dark grey is the midpoint between ace and (normal) grey, where it also tends to blend a bit with demisexuality. Attraction outside of a close relationshipis also very rare and the most attraction I do get is aesthetic or sensual, the most. It can also be used to describe a sex-positive repulsed asexual.

You see that AVEN triangle at the top left of the forum pages? The white side at the top represents the spectrum of sexuality, from hetero- to homosexual (I guess). The black point at the bottom is asexuality. The gray area is inbetween. Dark gray means in the gray area, very close to asexuality.

I feel like it'd be "I've had less instances of sexual attraction than I can count on my fingers"

Makes sense that it would be so gray that it's almost black (i.e. asexual). So close to ace but not ace.

I think if you are so gray that you are almost black it's easier to call yourself just asexual. Or "asexual with exceptions".

I like the sound of it. If having a libido and fantasies, but still being completely averse to the idea of personally having sex counts as "exceptions", I could call myself that. But I still thing that just "asexual" is easier, also in conveying the simple idea that I won't have sex - my "exceptions" aren't about actually desiring sex with anyone.

As others have stated, it's gray-sexual but rather close to asexual; a very negligible amount of sexuality.

 

I just say I'm asexual, unless my negligible sexuality is relevant.
