Intersexual: A sexual orientation used to describe a person sexually attracted to a person born intersex. (I use this way to describe sexual orientation for the first time June, 5th 2016; to the best of my knowledge I am the first to do this.). You can read this blog here: Is my husband gay, now that I appear a man? I will use “Intersexual” as a Sexual Orientation.

Here is one way to add the gender symbols to show two intersexual

Lesbian: A lesbian is a female homosexual: a female who experiences romantic love or sexual attraction to other females.

 

Two Lesbian Flags

(First: Lipstick Lesbian and Second: Butch Lesbian) 

A “Butch” describs a lesbian woman who has a gender expression that is highly “masculine”.  “Lip Stick Lesbian” describes a lesbian woman who has a gender expression that appears highly “feminine”.  Next, there are also “Gold Star Lesbians”, whom have only kissed a man, but have not had sex with a man.  There are also, Platinum Star Lesbians, whom have never done anything sexual with a man.  Last, there are Power Lesbians, who are wealthy, have lots of  possessions and have powerful connections.

The two gender symbols for two females united 

Objectum Sexuals or Objectophiles: People who experience emotional, romantic, affectionate and/or sexual relationships with objects. Some consider this a fetish, and some, due to the complexity of their relationships with object do not feel this is a fetish at all. They feel it is a sexual orientation instead. Some feel that objectum-sexuality is often mislabelled as a sexual fetish or paraphilia. However, it does not fit into either categories, as the feelings experienced by objectophiles are not only sexual, they can be emotional and romantic as well.

Pansexual: Is sexual attraction, romantic love, or emotional attraction toward people of any sex or gender identity.

Polymory: the philosophy or state of being in love or romantically involved with more than one person at the same time.

Pomosexual: when an individual does not feel their sexual preference can and/or should be identified by pre-existing labels

Polysexual: when an individual is attracted to some, but not all gender expressions. Polysexuality is the attraction to multiple genders or sexes. A polysexual person is one “encompassing or characterized by many different kinds of sexuality.”

Sapiosexual: One who finds intelligence the most sexually attractive feature.

Skoliosexual: when an individual is not attracted to cisgender individuals, but the other gender expressions

This is not a comprehensive list of sexual orientations – when it comes to sexuality, people are constantly coming up with news ways to identify themselves.
