A month or two ago I read an article on possible asexuality signs, and I fit most of them. I think I'm asexual but my family thinks I'm gay.
I first found out about asexuality when I was 19. I was born without a sex drive and I’m not particularly interested in looking for a romantic relationship.
I understand that my husband will never be able to provide me with the sex life I crave, which hurts him as much as me, but we both acknowledge it’s not something he can control.
How was my husband was asexual? Had he always been this way? Was it just with me? And did I really want a divorce?
It's no secret that I'm asexual. I've explained what this means several times, and I know this guy is well aware. How do I get him to back off?
There’s a lot more to sexuality than meets the eye.
#YouKnowYoureAFeministWhen… It’s the punchline to a good joke. It’s the start of catchy Twitter hashtag. Right?
So, if you’re out there in the world feeling broken, and questioning if you’re the only one who doesn’t “get it”, or if you’re eager to learn more about asexuality so you can be a better ally to the LGBTQIA+ community, here are three things that helped me claim and learn about my asexual identity.
Sexual attraction is not the only type of physical attraction, AND aesthetic attraction is not the same as sexual attraction!
I didn't use the word "asexual" until I was a senior in college. I didn't so much use the word as slur it, in between a long drunken ramble, to my girlfriend and our best friend in our apartment's small kitchen.
My stomach turns at the touch of his rough hands, and I vomit on his bare feet.
