I'm Aromantic Asexual
I am an Aromantic Asexual. I discovered that I was Aromantic and Asexual in 2012. I'm not attracted to people sexually or romantically.
- An Aromantic is a person who experiences little or no romantic attraction to others
- An Asexual is someone who does not experience sexual attraction.
Asexuality is a vast spectrum. There are many different types of Asexuals. Some Asexual people do have sex, whether it's to please their partner or simply because they like the sensation of sex.
You can still enjoy sex and not be sexually attracted to people. Some Asexuals have high libidos, some have very low libidos like myself.
Some Asexuals have children. Some Asexuals want children. Then there are Asexuals that don't have children or want children like myself.
Asexuals can be homoromantic or heteroromantic. Like I said the spectrum is so very vast.
Asexuality is not celibacy. They are two different things. You wouldn't tell a gay person that they chose to be gay, it's the same way for Asexuals.
Yes, some Asexuals masturbate. Again it depends on the persons sex drive, and whether or not they like it.
Asexuals face many obstacles as well. Many people can't comprehend it, or they think it's an imbalance or psychological.
We do exist. We aren't broken.
