Cupiosexual is a subset of asexual. It is used to describe asexuals (people who experience little to no sexual attraction) who still desire a sexual relationship. They experience no sexual attraction to others, however.

Anyone critiquing this orientiation fall under the umbrella term of aphobia ('a-' from Latin prefix for 'not/without', 'phobia' meaning 'fear' in Latin, lit. 'without fears/unafraid'), or more specifically cupiophobia ('cupio' from the Latin word meaning 'lover's desire', and 'phobia' mea.ning 'fear'; lit. 'fearful of lover's desire', not to be confused with 'fear of sexual desire', i.e., libidophobia).
