    Hello. I'm 22 years old

    and For a long time I never really understood what the big deal was about sex and I just thought when I had it someone in my mind would open up and the vail would drop and I would finally know what everyone was talking about. It did not. I did have sex and I found it...

    I have never had nor wanted a partner of any

    gender. I have never engaged in any type of intimacy and do not wish to either. I am repulsed by the mere thoughts actually. Marriage and children are things I have ADAMANTLY rejected since childhood and contrary to the ignorant assertions that it was "just a phase" I still feel...

    I am a sex-repulsed asexual.

    I can't figure out whether I'm aromantic or heteroromantic. Does anyone else struggle with figuring out romantic orientation?

    People think it's dumb

    for me to be one. Because they think it's "no love, no life." Hey, I've been an asexual for almost two years. I don't need an intimate love, family love is what I need.

    The Realization Of Being Asexual

    I remember from when I was about 14 years old, I always felt different from most males, I was never interested in girls as they seemed to be, my mother just said that it was just a phase and that I would like girls some day. At age 16, same thing, my mother said that I was just a...

    I'm Beginning To Think...

    Here's my stance on my sexuality (I'm putting it in list form, since it can get long and rambling if I don't): - I don't feel primary sexual attraction to anyone, regardless of gender. I cannot look at a person, however attractive I may find them, and feel sexually attracted in...

    It's taken 32 years to discover there is a label

    for me to belong to. I am asexual. Only this week I researched why I have no interest in sex. After lots of reading, I found out that I am part of a very small group of people known as asexuals. I am in a relationship with a fantastic girl that is craving sex almost every day. I...

    For starters I never thought it was something

    I think I am old enough to know.

    And I am not a virgin. But the idea of "s3x" makes me angry and depressed. And I just get this feeling like I want to cry and go to sleep. Anyone that knows me and is my friend knows not to talk about it at all.

    Asexual by choice....

    I am asexual because that is what I felt in high school and I was glad to feel the way I did. I believe that my good health got my body into balance and that is why I have sexual attraction now, but I still want to be pure. I want to be a virgin because I feel like sex would...

    And I'm proud of it. I only wish

    that others could understand the joy I get out of the "little things", the things I find great pleasure in. People say that I'm missing out on sex, but honestly I think that they're missing out on life. There's so much out there... so much more than sex.

    How may of you actually know what asexual is?

    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...

    Having desires or fantasizing about s-e-x is pointless if you don't want to be in a relationship of this kind. I don't need l-u-s-t at this point in my life, at least for now. It gets in the way and ruins things. I'm learning to keep it at bay. Without it I'll have a clearer...
