Asexuals

Asexuality can mean two things. The first is the biological term in which something can reproduce by itself. The other term is a sexual orientation in which the person does not feel sexual attraction to either gender. I am an asexual. Asexuality is just now becoming recognized as a true sexual orientation. Like straight, gay, bi, we are born asexual. It is not something we choose. However, some medical issues, such as a hormone imbalance for example, can cause a person to feel less interested in sex. Also, sexual trauma in the past can lead a person to lead an asexual lifestyle. However, asexuals do not consider them "true" asexuals, since it is something you are born with. So do you know some asexuals or some facts about them?

Because there is significant variation among people who identify as asexual, asexuality can encompass broad definitions. Researchers generally define asexuality as the lack of sexual attraction or the lack of sexual interest, but their definitions vary; they may use the term "to refer to individuals with low or absent sexual desire or attractions, low or absent sexual behaviors, exclusively romantic non-sexual partnerships, or a combination of both absent sexual desires and behaviors."

Asexuality is different from antisexuality. While asexual can have a lot in common with antisexuality, asexuality does not imply a positive/negative attitude to the phenomenon of sex. Also asexuality should not be confused with the physical inability to have sex and/or procreation.
Some believe that asexuality falls under the definition of sexual castroist. However, although in some cases abstaining from sex and may result from similar causes, in General, modern medicine recognizes that asexuality is not a disorder and does not harm the physical or mental health. This is confirmed by many people identifying themselves as asexual, denying that any of these reasons occurred in their case, and adding that because of their asexuality does not cause any suffering, then it cannot be attributed to medical or emotional disorders. :oops:

While it’s true that sexuality can change over time, that is not the case for everyone and it might not be true for the person you are talking to. It’s complicated and for asexuals it’s a very real experience that at times presents an incredible challenge. Instead of the patronizing tones, we could all benefit from understanding support – regardless of whether or not we eventually become interested in having sex. There are a million ways to be supportive of the asexuality folks in your life, but the best way is just to remember that they are people. Our sexuality does not define who we are as people.

I think that people are free to choose whether they need sexual relationships or not, whether other people attract them or not. But if a person does not want any relationships at the moment it is not necessarily a sign that a person is asexual. May be this person has just never met anybody to fall in love and to have sexual relationships with. I am not trying to say that asexuals don't exist. Of course they exist and they have all rights to exist and to live their life the way they want. But not every person who considers himself asexual can really be called this way.

ok so, there's a lot of different opinions and definitions about being asexual. but i want to state, in my own personal opinion, what being asexual means to me
i love to hold hands, kiss, cuddle, hug, make out with, and massage my guy. and all that's normal and romantic. where i draw the line is at sex, that i will not do, and i have to be blunt and put this out here
i love romantic things, love letters/ words, dates to the movies or video game arcade, ballroom dancing when in the mood, love songs, chocolate, ect. i can be a very romantic person <3
so, even though that's what it means in my eyes, everyone's opinions on this orientation is different, and i respect that :)
overall though, true love can only be achieved when two people bond very closely with each other and feel a deep powerful emotional connection <3

As far as I know many asexual people as well need to get to know someone before feeling romantically attracted to them. Some use the label demiromantic if they need a strong emotional bond (like friendship for example) before feeling romantic attraction. It is common for asexuals to be intellectually attracted to someone after getting to know them as a friend (although 'love at first conversation' is perfectly possible).There are different forms of attraction. Many sexual people find that they need to get to know someone in order to feel romantically and/or sexually attracted to them. In fact, some people identify as demisexual, which is a label used by people in the gray area when they can only feel sexual attraction after having a strong emotional bond with someone.

I'm so happy that asexuality awareness is slowly spreading. because recently i also noticed my indifference to sexual part of relations and i did not know what to do....Even now I sometimes struggle. My boyfriend tries to understand because we love each other, but he finds it difficult to differentiate between attraction and libido. Pretty much every insensitive thing you can tell an ace he's said to me while genuinely caring and trying to understand. But he started out just as ignorant as I did, and he has an intensely active libido hindering him. Our progress is slow and compromises have had to happen sex-wise from both sides but I have hope that we can make this last.

Asexuality is the lack of sexual desire. Not a month, not a year, and always!Aseksual has nothing against sex as a phenomenon - but it does not interest him.For example, non-drinking man looks on alcoholic beverages in the store, but he does not buy them. There is no particular ideology, identifying sex as something harmful ,dangerous, immoral, etc., have no asexuals! And if yet these views are - then it is no longer about asexuality, but about antisexual - understanding of sex as something negative, conscious of his failure.

Asexuals are people who just don't feel attraction to other people, And asexuality is not a pathology. It doesn't cause harm to your physical and mental health, so you don't have to be worry for your health condition. I am not asexual, but I treat such people as ordinary people, but with some specialities. It's their own life, and they have a right to be whom they want to be.
