    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...

    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.

    Don't you just love how there are 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...

    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...

    I have never experienced sexual attraction.

    Sure, I can find a person or fictional character appealing on an aesthetic level, but people in general do nothing for me. I have tried watching media that people might find sexually arousing (I.e. Game of Thrones and the sex scenes it shoves in your face), and I just felt...

    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.

    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 Wrote This A While Ago. It Still Stands.

    I will never love someone in that way. I grew up thinking it’d happen. I’d wake up one day And I’d feel some need. I didn’t feel it yet, But someday I would. I would see a beautiful woman Or a man even; Someone who would physically stimulate me And fuel some strange...

    For a few years, or maybe

    even longer than that, I've felt like a complete out cast. I couldn't figure out what was wrong with me. All my friends either had boyfriends or people who they liked and talked to but when it came to me I had a hard time trying to like anyone. So I started forcing myself to...

    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...

    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...

    Never been interested in relationships

    and bf that I am aromantic and asexual without actually using those words. And they felt the need to say it was because I have a poor relationship with my father. What the heck! Sorry bf but you'll have to get over me never having sex woth you, or even being attracted to ya.

    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.

    I didn't come to this realization

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...
