What's the word for someone that likes neither men or women?

Asexual seems like the wrong word, considering it's usually meant to refer to someone with no sex drive.
What if someone enjoys sex, but doesnt like either gender?

Uhm. At that point I guess you're defined by what you DO want to have sex with? (blank)ophile?

This better not be an alt of gbacn2.

I think the phrase is: Enjoy your hand.


Hmm. Handsexual? Handophile? No, wait, that sounds too much like something to do with Han Solo, ugh nevermind.

Han-tastic!

But yeah, if you're not attracted to another human due to their gender - in that they have a gender - without being more specific about what it is that turns your crank, it's difficult to give it a name.

Ah yes I'm asexual...

The word you are looking for could be ... Pansexual?

Anyways.... I want to contribute more but can't so, here is a picture of a kitten...

How about "nemosexual"?

Or are you just speaking about who you like to have sex with, rather than generally?

Well, a newspeak term is "non-sexual"

Also I didnt know about the Pansexual term, but apparently I am one.

I've only heard pansexual used to describe people who can get off to anything, regardless of its gender/age/appearance/personality/size/species. Jack Harkness, for example. I don't get out much, though.

That's not exactly right. Pansexuals can still find individuals attractive or not attractive, find some appearances/personalities/etc. off putting, and they aren't necessarily attracted to aliens. Just like gay people aren't attracted to everyone of the same gender.
