    I have never been sexually attracted to anyone

    in my life, and at 19, it doesn't seem I ever will. I'm fine with this, even if I feel left out a lot, as many people seem to talk about it a lot. Sex is everywhere and it makes me feel uncomfortable and isolated. Being 'fixed' was very unpleasant and that's an understatement...

    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...

    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...

    Stop telling me I need to get my hormones

    checked. This isn't a medical or psychological condition. Stop telling I'm too young to know. I'm 20, the late bloomer ship has sailed. I need more experience. I have never felt the need to "get some" and I won't "get some" just to make you feel comfortable around me.

    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.

    Does anybody else get laughed at

    as a response to when people see you're Asexual? Before you read: "AB" is the 5'6"ish, cute face, straight teeth, big butt, medium boob, but skinny type of woman (I don't even know if that was a good description.) I really never bring that up since it happens ALL THE TIME, but...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    What am I? I don't know.

    Intimacy Without Sex?
