I Am Asexual

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,671 People

    It took me a while to find out haha.

    .. I was hinting about it last year, but I didn't exactly know what asexuality was back then. I don't think anyone except one of my friends know that I might be asexual. I say this because I have never been sexually attracted to anyone, not even boys. I can't consider myself to...

    It's so nice to find other people

    who understand being "attractive" doesn't mean I wanna have sex with you it means you are pretty to look at! That being said I am I guess "demi-sexual?" My boyfriend can get me in the mood occasionally but no one else. Lucky for him huh? I see no one else as remotely sexually...

    I always felt I was broken,

    when I was younger and all the lads were talking about having sex and "getting lucky" . I was just sat there enjoying my video games. Don't get me wrong I think women are beautiful, very aesthetically pleasing to look at. And I do feel romantically attracted to them. But if...

    I have no sexual desire,

    don't tell me that I could change or that I am to young. I know who I am and I plan to stay myself.

    I’ve recently discovered the concept of

    tantric celibacy, and I am absolutely fascinated and excited by its possible meanings for my own life. There is one book in particular that I haven’t read yet but intend to read: Stuart Sovatsky’s Eros, Consciousness, and Kundalini. It looks like he talks about a tantric way...

    And In The Left Corner...

    Yep, you know it. I'm full on asexual. And I'm ******* proud of it too. I don't like guys, I don't like girls. I feel no sexual desires or attractions, or lust. I DO however still have the ability to feel sexual pleasure but doing that with anyone but myself feels wrong. It's...

    Asexual- Relieved And Scared At The Same Time

    Okay I don't really know where to start with this. I basically plucked up the courage to tell my story on here because I thought I might meet other people like me? I feel like I can't tell my family or anyone because I don't want them to judge me and I feel like I'm letting my...

    For starters I never thought it was something

    unnatural. I simply thought my interests rested elsewhere. I wasn't all into flirting, or getting intimate...I preferred to be reading or painting. I would see couples holding hands or kissing and the only thing I could think of was 'aww I wish I had a boyfriend so I could play...

    Mind Over Matter

    Hi, I'm a 23 year-old woman, a virgin, and I'd say I'm about 95% asexual. Let me just start by saying, to me, sex is like water-tasteless and pointless, unless you're dying of thirst. The funny thing is I started out in life being pretty sexual. Even before puberty, I used to...

    National Coming Out Day was iffy.

    Instead of boldly declaring that I was Asexual, I told my cousins I was 'Ace' and explained that it simply meant I wasn't interested in sex. One of them said they didn't care (lol) because she's a virgin too, and the other one felt more comfortable about talking to me about her...

    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...

    My asexuality most likely stems from being a

    victim of rape. I feel like sex is unnecessary and unneeded. I've always found sex to be disgusting, the way people crave and lust for it is sickening, I just can't see where they're coming from. Personally, any sort of sexual contact sends me into a panic mode, when people talk...

    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...

    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...

    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 believe Asexuality is made fun of by many.

    I can't be the only one who has gotten the asexual joke of: "you self procreate?" But also, I think it's viewed as a form of cowardice, because you don't want to have sex in such a sex based society; like your almost scared to do it. When really you don't have a sex drive, or...

    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.

    The sexual world often falls into the terrible
