A comic about the different types of attraction one might feel. The descriptions were taken from a website about asexuality, I saw the link to that site  floating around on tumblr and really wanted to add visuals to them.

I think people who are not asexual feel these regularly too. There’s all kinds of attractions for all kinds of people. Enjoy.

EDIT : Description changed because the original made it seem unclear that the art was done by me.

Oh my god this was SO helpful. And the art that goes along with it is super cute.

This image was one of the first things that helped me piece together that I'm asexual.

Just... thank you.

Thank you so much for this very helpful picture! I use it all the time!

I think it'd be great if you can edit your deviantart name into the bottom right corner. I like to share this image a lot and it'd be great if they could find your page more easily if they just save it to their harddrive.

I'm glad somebody used "attraction" instead of "sexuality". This case always confused lots of people. You've just made everything clear!:D

I saw this on tumblr just now. Very cute and very educational. Well done!

I like this very much. I personally hated refering to anything as my "sexual attraction" since I'm not interested in sex. But I do feel strong romantic attraction to people.

Same! I'm more of a "sensual" person. I'd love to have a cuddle buddy, but sex is a nuisance.

Someone linked me to this because I was saying how my attraction towards men isn't romantic or sexual in nature, but I still get star crushes (or maybe squishes, now that I think of it) and stuff. I think the term aesthetic attraction works quite well for my situation, thank you for explaining it :D

This is so great bless you
Just a question, does kissing go under the sensual category?

Yeah, and actually I wanted to thank you for doing this. Images are easier to spread in most social networks. I hope that will help people stop imagining sexual things between two when nothing like that is the matter...

A picture is worth a thousand words.

Squish looks kinda "sensual+friendship" to me from these description, but I guess there's difference. Like, you like to cuddle your best friend because it's your close person and it's a way to have fun and express friendship; but as for Sensual, it's just a desire to touch because I dunno which reasons.

Squish? I thought it's called friendship or something.
secondlina's avatar
It's the really, really profound version of it.
Charanty's avatar
Profound version? Well, i'd say, it is a thing called "platonic love", if we speak of very close relationships that do not have sexual element in them.
