  • Non-MOGAI Definition: "relating to or being reproduction that results in recombination of genes from different individuals but does not involve meiosis and formation of a zygote by fertilization as in sexual reproduction," coined in 19541
  • 2016 Coining: "someone who identifies as asexual, but enjoys recreational sex."2
  • 2018 Coining: "Someone who does NOT have sexual attraction for ANYONE (asexual). If they do have sexual activity, it is for the sole purpose of reproduction. This is a micro label within the Asexual umbrella, similar in nature to say, placiosexual (that describes action)."3
  • 2019 Coining: "being attracted only to para (characters) in your paracosm…can be used by maladaptive daydreamers only!"4
