I am asexual and proud ^-^ I have no sexual desire or attraction towards either gender, and I'm fine with that

I don't mind growing up to be a crazy cat lady owo

But my biggest pet peeve is when my parents say "I'm not really asexual, I just haven't found the right person yet!"

I'm gonna hurt the next person who says that

Well the anime character part may just be part of being in a strong fandom, hehe ^^;
Asexual refers to sexual activites, So asexuals are people who have no interest in sex, or are not sexually aroused, but could also have romantic attractions. For example, someone who identifes as asexual biromantic means they have no interest with sex, but they have romantic attractions to two genders. 
But aromantic is when you don't experience romantic attraction, and they find no interest in kissing, or dating anyone. (Which might be the situation you're in) For example, someone who is bisexual aromantic is someone who has doesn't experince romantic attraction but has sexual attraction to two genders. 
You can mix and match too, like you may be aromantic pansexual or asexual homoromantic or aromantic asexual or heteroromantic asexual! Whatever you identify as. ;v;

I hope this helped! If you have any questions feel free to answer me and I will try to answer the best I can~

We actually just don't find anybody or anything sexually attractive, that's different to not wanting sex or sexual activities or not getting aroused. Cause some asexuals have sex regularly and are happy that way, they just don't find their partner physically appealing. c:
But I'm glad to see you've actually read up on asexuality and tried to understand it! that is so rare among sexual people.

Yeah, I think I've actually heard about that, I just wanted it to be short as I didn't feel like rambling and I kinda generalized, I apologize /w/
Oh it's no problem! I've been through times where I thought I was ace, and maybe I am, I just don't know it.  But I hope I was somewhat helpful

It's okay ;v; tbh it could've also confused that person because some people just don't even know what sexual attraction is. I've never felt it and I still have no idea how to describe it or even come close to understanding it. ;o;

Exactly! Everyone has a different view on their sexual/romantic orientation and what it means to them, so it's impossible to say "this is how ____sexuality works" It's extremely confusing and it's just this huge, wiggly-wobbly spectrum and is kinda fluid at times.

I believe I'm asexual, because I identify myself with it more than I do with any other sexuality.

But I'm not sure....


I can't imagine myself having sex, neither do I want to.

What's the connection between asexuality and past abuse, if any?
I feel like this stamp applies to me, but at the same time I'm also hesitant about sexual matters for other reasons. Still, I feel like I've always been asexual, not just as a result of abuse... I've never felt a real sexual attraction to any person. I mean of course I have a sex drive, but I prefer to keep it to myself. The idea of someone touching me... Eh. I'd rather avoid that unless it was with someone I love and trust very much, in which case I would do it merely for the closeness. Therefore, I'd say it's both, in a way. I have no strong sexual attraction to anyone, but I'm also really squeamish about the idea of actually engaging in sexual acts with another person. Ugh.

There's a bit about asexuality here: www.theglobeandmail.com/life/h…

In one of the paragraphs in the linked article states: "This research has revealed that asexuals are not more likely to have suffered a history of abuse, and do not have higher rates of depression or mental illness than sexual individuals."
It's a possibility one can gain this due to past abuse, but there is nothing confirming that. As asexuality appears to be an orientation developed before birth like any other LGBT identities. If you never experience that type of attraction or interest in sexual matters then you're asexual, simple.

You can be asexual due to abuse. You aren't any less valid.
Though, not everyone who is asexual has dealt with past sexual trauma.

What you described is sex-repulsed asexuality. Asexuals can just feel no sexual attraction towards anyone, they can be disgusted and/or triggered by sex, or anything similar.
Asexual is just an umbrella term. How you feel and associate with it doesn't change that. 
Also, you may want to look into 'Gray-Asexuality', as it means that you can sometimes feel sexual attraction, if it really does feel that way. You could also be 'Demisexual', which means that you only feel sexual attraction with someone you have a strong, established bond with.

Or, you could just be asexual who may participate in sexual acts, but just doesn't get any sexual gratification from it.

You can always look more into a term! Though, the umbrella term is still something you can identify with. I hope this helped!

I'm asexual, and I like porn/sexual things/etc but I would never actually have sex with another person.
Does that make sense?

Also, I know demi means for sex, but,
I am more of a lesbian-panromantic, I experience NO sexual desire, but you need to have a strong connection for me to like you.
panromantic/demiromantic asexual? Idk, I still just call myself gay lmao.

Would things like holding hands and kissing be considered sexual, or is sexual activity just sex?
Reply
:iconsarahowen97:
sarahowen97 Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I think that holding hands/kissing would be considered 'romantic'. This means that an asexual who has romantic feelings for someone the opposite gender would be considered asexual heteroromantic.
But I'm not an expert, so don't take my word as gospel:)

Demi is only wanting to have a sexual relationship with somebody you have a really strong emotional connection to.
Please correct me if I'm incorrect.
