Asexuality is the lack of sexual attraction to others, or low or absent interest in or desire for sexual activity. It may be considered a sexual orientation or the lack thereof. It may also be categorized more widely to include a broad spectrum of asexual sub-identities.
Asexuality is distinct from abstention from sexual activity and from celibacy, which are behavioral and generally motivated by factors such as an individual’s personal, social, or religious beliefs. Sexual orientation, unlike sexual behavior, is believed to be “enduring”. Some asexual people engage in sexual activity despite lacking sexual attraction or a desire for sex, due to a variety of reasons, such as a desire to pleasure themselves or romantic partners, or a desire to have children.
Acceptance of asexuality as a sexual orientation and field of scientific research is still relatively new, as a growing body of research from both sociological and psychological perspectives has begun to develop. While some researchers assert that asexuality is a sexual orientation, other researchers disagree. Asexual individuals may represent about 1 percent of the population.
Various asexual communities have started to form since the impact of the Internet and social media in the mid-90’s. The most prolific and well-known of these communities is the Asexual Visibility and Education Network, which was founded in 2001 by David Jay.

Disclaimer: What I say below is my own personal opinion and may differ from yours, but does not say either is correct or incorrect, we all have our interpretations.
Due to the molestation as a child, and then assault at 16, I have lost all interest in sexual relations with anyone.
Honestly, I don’t even like pashing or even being touched, again because of what happened as a child/teen boy.
I never knew what was wrong with me growing up, I thought I was weird, because all my school colleagues had partners, but I was not interested in anybody.
I honestly put down my Asexuality to Trust, something I feel is very important in a relationship.
I can’t trust anyone to fully know all about me.
Many people mis understand those who don’t like sexual relations and will make assumptions about them, instead of asking questions to clarify.
I’ve been lied about too.
Not every human seeks the company of another human, some, like me, may have been traumatised growing up, or they have seen marriages break up, or death of a loved one. There are many more reasons.
Every Asexual is different and has a different meaning for being asexual.
Despite me not wanting to be physical with anyone, I will occasionally watch adult movies to gain insight for writing erotic novels, which I do enjoy.
Another reason for being Asexual is due to my Birth Defect (Penis). I do not feel comfortable being seen naked by anyone.
In 2016, I met someone who was nice and we decided to spend the night together, this ended in disaster because she could feel I was not enjoying it.
Honestly, I felt self-conscious. This woman has not been in contact since.
I hope I have educated you all.
If any of you have any questions, please contact me.
I don’t judge, nor make assumptions and anything told in private, stays private.
