Demisexual Men and Women

A demisexual is a person who does not experience sexual attraction until they form a strong emotional connection with someone, often (but not always) in a romantic relationship. The term demisexual comes from the orientation being “halfway between” sexual and asexual. Nevertheless, this term does not mean that demisexuals have an incomplete or half-sexuality, nor does it mean that sexual attraction without emotional connection is required for a complete sexuality. In general, demisexuals are not sexually attracted to anyone of any gender; however, when a demisexual is emotionally connected to (usually in love with but sometimes feel strongly as friends) someone else, the demisexual experiences sexual attraction and desire, but only towards the specific partner or partners.

When describing demisexuality as an orientation to sexuals, sexuals often mistake it as an admirable choice rather than an innate orientation. Demisexuals are not choosing to abstain; they simply lack sexual attraction until a close relationship is formed.

Dining Out is a new exciting addition to Bristol’s lesbian & gay community offering a unique “culinary speakeasy” style dining experience. Our innovative approach to food, using the best ingredients and a stylish presentation, makes it the perfect place to take old friends and meet new ones.

Behind Dining Out lies a creative and talented team of lesbian & gay hospitality professionals, all dedicated to making your dining experience a memorable one.  Each of us are highly skilled in our chosen areas of the profession; we include award-winning chefs, experienced event managers, skilled waiting staff, sommeliers, baristas & mixologists.  Together we have a clear mission, to establish a new up- market city-centre venue where Bristol’s lesbian & gay community can dine & socialise in style.

Our passion for high quality food together with the informal dining style offered by pop-up restaurants has been the inspiration behind Dining Out. We want to take the popular concept of the “pop-up” out of peoples’ homes and re-locate it in a smart city-centre venue, while at the same time, maintaining the “word-of-mouth” nature that surrounds such events – all because we kind of like it….

Beginning in April 2011 we are launching a series of such events in central Bristol for lesbian and gay foodies, including our informal supper club, bistro nights and wine tasting & dating events
