...that are attached to the ending -sexual?

Before Scarleteen, I knew about heterosexual, homosexual, and bisexual. Figured I had my bases covered. But there are more prefixes! And they keep coming! I learned about asexual. Then I heard about pansexual and cisexual, and I have never heard of those. Is there some kind of compilation of all the terms & definitions?

I don't know of one list that will have all words that end in -sexual besides the dictionary, always a handy resource.

But just looking at what you listed so far, here are a few I see missing:
asexual
omnisexual
transsexual
pomosexual
autosexual
ecosexual
ambisexual
