Sexuality Wiki

Polysexuality is the attraction to many sexes, genders, and/or gender expressions, but not all. The prefix poly-, meaning ‘many or more than one’, comes from the Greek polus, meaning ‘much or many’. It is distinct from pansexuality/gender-blind bisexuality which encompasses attraction to all genders, regardless of gender. It should not be confused with polyamory: the desire for or practice of having multiple intimate partners with the consent of all individuals involved.

Polysexuality can be expressed as any (incomplete) combination of sexual attractions towards feminine, masculine, androgyny, agender, non-binary, females, males, intersex, etc.

This is considered a microlabel under the bisexual/multisexual umbrellas.

The Flag

The polysexual flag has three stripes: pink at the top, representing attraction to women, green in the middle, representing attraction to non-binary people, and blue at the bottom, representing attraction to men.
