    Finally I Know What To Call Myself

    I am demisexual and have gone for years thinking that I was just defective in some way regarding sex and how I relate sexually to others. I have long valued emotional connection and comfort/trust over anything sexual, and I thought I was the only one.I don't think sex is bad or...

    Am I? Maybe this explains my lack of sexual

    partners... Being 25, obviously attracted to guys (homosexual), but still. I am not sure what this is. I feel like romantic "bedroom" intimacy would indeed be pleasurable, but I just cannot fathom why... why a one time thing would be... preferable (I guess that word works...

    I'M So Excited!

    All this time I thought I was just a weirdo, but no it's an actual thing. I can't tell you how thrilled I am by the fact that there are enough people like this that there is an actual term for it. Eeee! I just ran across the term today for the first time, and I'd never heard of...

    This Is A New Thing To Me

    After discovering things and question the sexuality as I have noticed things at times. This also reflect from my previous relationship with my ex girlfriend when we had tried to do sexual things I was not satisfied by it at all. I was very anti sexual as result of being exposed...

    Relationships Confuse Me

    All my life, I never thought sex was important. A lot of my friends would talk about it all the time, which confused me because I always felt ashamed when I had sex with girls. I thought I was gay, but when I tried guys, I felt them same way. It seemed like nothing could satisfy...

    I've struggled with my sexuality my entire life.

    I learned I was bisexual when I was very young. Though I was attracted to both men and woman and wanted to be in a relationship, I never felt the same sexual desires my peers did. The urge has just never been all that strong for me, but I didn't know what that meant. Honestly, I...

    I Think I Am, But I'm Not Sure

    I know I'm straight, but I'm rarely attracted to men, whereas I've never found my own sex attractive nor could I imagine myself in a relationship with women. I rarely find a man physically attractive and when I do I won't start fantasizing about him sexually, until I get to know...

    So, I recently discovered demisexuality.

    And I am relieved beyond words. I've only felt sexual attraction for a handful of people, and I always thought my mind must be messed up. All of my other friends were attracted by looks and style, and I was so confused as to how they could possibly like someone without spending...

    Fitting The Pieces Together

    Alright, so I'm going to try and be brief, but I thought I'd gather some thoughts on the subject since there's a group and I really think I'd like to talk about this with people who might understand. (This is going to be major overshare territory with a hint of possibly...

    Always.

    I always thought of myself as different. I never liked boys the way my friends did growing up. I thought they where appealing to the eye...but I never really liked them. The older I got the more I was around girls who where obsessed with guys. I couldn't ever say that. No one...

    Can I Legitimently Claim This? (Accidents don't happen)

    I am hetero. I would call myself that, right? when I think about it I'm attracted to people who are sexy right away. But arousal was never the same thing as consent and you're never going to get that unless I feel something strongly towards you.  all of the attraction and...

    I Think This Might Be Me...?

    I'm not sure if I can say I am or not, but what I've read about it really seems to fit and make sense to me. I don't know anyone else who says they are in real life to ask though, so I thought I'd just put this here instead. I have never been an overly sexual person. I remember...

    Maybe.

    As far as my own sexuality goes, I don't understand a whole heck of a lot. I've always felt kind of out of place when my friends would swoon over boys. I rarely ever develop any serious crushes, and I've never been in a true relationship. The closest I've gotten to one was with a...

    I Consider Myself Quasi Demisexual. I Know Some Demis Will Take Issue With This.

    they'll say it's about attraction and not behavior. See I have this trait right. when I first meet someone I can be attracted or repulsed but their personality will alter it. People who i don't inititally find attractive will often want me to rate a photograph of them or...
