I'm fully straight, but don't go out of my way to seem macho or whatever. To each their own. I don't even watch sports, lol.
I'm kind of in this camp too, actually. It's not that I'm a robot when it comes to sex, it's more that I'm fine with just keeping it in my head. I've tried a few things with an ex girlfriend, and they just didn't go anywhere. You can only chalk up "it won't stay up" to nervousness like twice.I have to go with Asexual.
While I very much have sexual interests and desires that I would mainly classify as "Bi-leaning starlight" (I think the male body is very attractive, but a man's face snaps me outta that pretty quick lol) I would never actually want to act on them.

Figure it's just not something my body wants to do.
Wow. These are not the results I was expecting. Here I was worried I wouldn't fit in here, and I ended up finding a ton of people in the same boat as me.
I find people of all genders sexy, I always have. But the idea of sex itself always weirded me out. I thought I would learn to like it, but I never did. I guess that makes me asexual, and there's a lot more of us than I thought.
if you experience sexual attraction and a desire to participate in sex, then that sounds to me like you are a sexual person. not sure where asexual fits in with that, as it would by definition be a lack of interest in/desire for sex. explain, please?
Just as straight person may have the occasional though or fantasy that involves other males, such thoughts do not make that person gay or bi.
How so? If their vag is getting wet over their hot pheromone filled bodies...or their cock engorges with blood upon the thought of their locker room buddy kissing them...that's fairly...sexual. The Kinsey Scale is a wonderful representation of human sexuality. I used to go around saying I was Asexual too when I had homosexual (heavy, heavy sexy hella gay) attractions. I just assumed I was asexual because I never met a RL person I wanted to fuck. That was until I was taken off a certain medication and then guys around me seemed shit fookin sexy.
I believe Asexuality exists but I think a lot of people mislabel themselves.
Because, as I said, our thoughts do not equal our orientation. Asexuality is not at all limited to the distinction of 'no sexual thoughts or feelings whatsoever.'
I have a lot of sexual thoughts and attractions but I would never, ever act on them. Asexuals can very much be comfortably labeled as such for a notable low interest in actually participating in sexual activity.
And even then, as I said, some Asexuals will engage in sexual activity for the sake of not alienating a partner, or to fit it, or for other reasons.
Asexuality absolutely exists. But there is sadly an awful not of misinformation about it which leads to a lot of misunderstanding.
Not at all.
Asexuality is characterized by low or absent sexual attraction/desire and/or by a low or absent interest in participating in sexual activity.
I don't really understand the need to lump heterosexuals and homosexuals with existent sex drives into the asexual category. Are all women who experience periods asexual during their time of the month? It's misinformation. Asexuals are often considered weird due to their lack of sex drive for grown adults. Everyone who experiences sexual attraction can understand low sex drive. We're not all frat boys after all.
This is what I'm talking about mislabeling. It seems everyone wants to be "different". Hell, imo the mast majority of people are bisexual. They just don't want to come to grips with their thoughts and attractions. It's easier to just tell a falsehood. And falsehoods are dangerous.
Asexuality is an *orientation,*
An interesting position. I've been on asexual forums before and I have had a few asexual friends. (One was a romantic one <3) And they seemed to favor the idea that asexuality was not an orientation...but a lack of one entirely. (Similar to how atheists are not a religion but a lack there of...only atheists choose to be that of course. Asexual don't choose anything.) I must say its a bit arrogant of you to claim they are wrong in thinking that. Why are you correct and they wrong?
And one more question if you don't mind. Men and Women and Others who grow old...they lose their interest in sex. It's a fact of life. According to your definition the fate of all orientations is to become the asexual one, no?
I once again encourage reading "The Invisible Orientation" for anyone who would like to know more. It's a very misunderstood thing, and I hope that those who would like to know more will take the opportunity to educate themselves
