Aphallatia

Updated: FEBRUARY 3, 2020

Aphallatia is a lack of sexual activity. Aphallatia is also known as celibacy. However, unlike the term celibacy, aphallatia does not necessarily denote a choice to abstain from sex or a moral judgement or reason for lack of sexual activity. Instead, it is a neutral term for the state of being without sexual activity.
