The adjective pansexual refers to someone who has equal acceptance of all of the major human sexual orientations and variations, including heterosexuality, homosexuality and bisexuality, as well as transgender, transsexual and intersex people. This may mean being prepared to have sex with people of all sexes, or just tolerance of it.
Many groups within the BDSM community are noted for their pansexual nature.
Pansexualism means something completely different. It is the doctrine that the sex drive can explain all aspects of human behaviour. This has been attributed to Sigmund Freud, but in fact he noted seversl other fsctors such as hunger and thirst.
