    So this is my first post on this site.

    I am just coming to know the term asexual and have found much comfort in knowing more about it. I am an asexual and that makes me feel better knowing I’m not a broken human being that it’s actual something others are dealing with. I am over 30 and have dated both men and...

    I think sex is overrated these days

    and people just care so much about it. But why is it when people are not sexually attracted to someone or they just simply don't want sex people make a big deal out of it and think we are not normal, think we have problems, or dislike us? I don't get it, like sex isn't...

    I feel like I would rather help in killing

    terrorists (even though I don't know to shoot) than ever have s*x with a person....I'm really asexual and I'm not ashamed of it.. the thing is that there are just 1% of asexual people in the world and none close to me to not judge me as others. You know, you get fed up with...

    I am Asexual. I am completely sure of it.

    I want to come out. But I am worried people won't understand. I'm worried they will say asexuality isn't real and i'm just saying this for attention. I just wish there was a way for people to understand. Im tired of constantly feeling like there is something wrong with me.

    I recently "came out"

    as asexual, and ever since then I've felt this constant mixture of confusion and relief. I feel relieved because I think I've figured things out, but then there's times when I second guess myself because of things like libido and aesthetic attraction. I know for a fact that I'm...

    I am 22 years old, a virgin (I've never been in

    a relationship, been kissed, or had sex), female (pronouns she, her, hers)and am more specifically hetero-romantic asexual. My whole life I haven't fit in with my peers. Everyone talks about sex, drugs, drinking, and partying. I don't like any of those things and because of...

    I'm a 16 year old girl,

    I only just discovered that I'm asexual... I think? I'm romantically attracted to guys but I don't want to have sex with them, the thought of it is just not appealing whatsoever. When I see a cute guy I imagine dating him not sex, does this sound like I'm asexual? I'm scared...

    I wish people could understand

    that as*xuals can enjoy things like kissing or hugging. I tried to explain to my best friend and brother that I was as*xual but I still enjoyed a relationship with a guy. I enjoy showing affection. But what they don't seem to understand is that things like kissing or cuddling...

    A Request From The Other Side

    I respect the rights of all asexual people not to have sex as it is not part of their make up and they do not desire it. But if you are asexual, I would ask you to think VERY carefully about becoming involved in any relationship with a person who IS sexual.   The...

    What am I? I don't know.

    Sex grosses me out. Sexual organs gross me out. Any sexual related practice besides kissing or making out grosses me out. But I appreciate male physical beauty and maybe attracted to that. I do understand asexual can have feelings, and I do have feelings, and desires but I hate...

    So I just got out of class

    and was walking to the computer lab that I'm in now. While walking, I guess this young woman saw my Ace shirt. She said "Nice Shirt" to me while we walked past each other. First time that's ever happened in real life. It's either they ask (Which I don't mind), or they laugh like...

    I don't appreciate people messaging me trying

    to be sexual. I'm here to meet and support people not for you to indulge in whatever fantasy you may have. For those who don't know asexual means I don't have a sexual attraction to anyone.

    I always felt I was broken,

    I am Pan-Asexual, and I know God will love me

    no matter what I do or who I love, but I'm afraid of what my family will think. Everyone in my family is either Catholic or Southern Baptist. I have a good idea what will happen, because my Uncle came out as gay, and married his partner 3 years ago, and everyone in my family...

    It's a realisation I've come to quite recently,

    most of my life I've just thought there was something wrong with me. Knowing that it's actually my orientation, and that there are others like me out there, is a huge comfort.

    It hurts me and it makes me feel mad

    when people say asexuality is curable. I'm not sick. There is nothing to cure. The only thing that needs to be cured is your intolerance.

    I firstly want to make clear

    that I am not 100% certain if I am asexual, but after some research, I've come to the conclusion that it is a possibility, especially after discovering the different "types" of asexuality, which is why I felt the need to finally join this Group. Asexual means there's a lack of...

    Love from an asexual is the most pure,

    unconditional love anyone can receive. If you are in a relationship with an asexual, you know that they love you for why you are; for your mind, your personality, and for yourself. Asexual people can still have sex. But it has a different meaning to them than to most people...

    who will accept and/or acknowledge the existence of homosexuality, bisexuality, and/or etc., but if you mention the word Asexuality they laugh in your face and deny its existence? /sarcasm. It irks me. It shows just how close-minded some people are. It is truly offensive. Well...

    Intimacy Without Sex?

     I am female. I am not biologically asexual, but I am at heart. I liked the way people were when we were little. All my friends were guys, and we had so much fun all the time. We all knew what sex was and so forth, but we all considered it a stupid thing that decent people...

    This is my opinion, but I don't think anyone

    can claim to be asexual until they're at LEAST 16. My sex drive didn't kick in until around junior year of high school, and most people's sex drives won't kick in completely until they're completely done with puberty. Until you feel your sex drive you won't know fully. If you...

    I recently started questioning my identity

    several weeks ago, and honestly I still don't know. I always knew I had asexual tendencies, I rarely think of sex. I do have sex, usually a a commitment, I'm not forced or anything. I also can and do get aroused, though this is very rare, maybe several times a month. I don't...

    How Do I Say This...

    I'm not completely sure yet if asexual is the most accurate word to describe me, but that's what I tell people I am. I find it helps them understand better where I'm coming from when I say I've never had sex and I don't want to. For a while my mom didn't believe me and just...
