    Well...
    share your opinions.
    Do you like theme or stay away from them?
    how do you feel?
    is it weird for someone to have no sexual feeling of any kind at all?
    are they appealing or repulsive?
    Anything...good or bad.

    Asexuality: Having no sexual feelings or urges with any sex male or female. No sexual attraction, low or absent sexual activity.


    EDIT:
    After reading some comments down below, I felt that we 'as gays' aren't much aware of other sexual orientations as much as we want the straight and religious communities to know about us 'homosexuals' and 'homosexuality'.
    So...for the sake of knowledge and awareness...here are some videos that would help us to understand more.(Obviously these are for those who are interested)

    I believe there is a verb missing in your thread title. Is it "think," "feel," "know," "imagine," what?

    I think they are normal people who simply have no sexual interest. If one can be interested in one sex exclusively or even both, it's also possible for one to not have any sexual interest at all.

    I feel I should be the one best that can adequately answer these questions as I'm a practical asexual myself, while very much the desiring type, but the key difference between me and an actual asexual is that I actively quench my desires and they don't have any. It's hard for me to think at the moment, but let me say that I am a man of desires but I learned to sublimate them, and testosterone plays a key role in the pursuit of various scientific matters of interest to me. I'll explain all of this at a much better time. These days though I'm not actively sublimating sexual desire as I'm "fapping" too much for my own good these days, so now I am taking Benadryl or it could be any SSRI I suppose, or just any drug that can inhibit the reuptake of serotonin whether they are anti-depressants or not (I'm not suffering from depression), so that by default in the last couple days I have become asexual, and I have what amounts to "shrivel" penis syndrome. I'm cheating, and I'm just waiting for this phase or whatever it is to past me by.

    But who really wants to know about the sex life, or lack of it (yes, which also includes as they say "non-fapping"), from an individual with a high sex drive?

    And under the effects of any kind of serotonin reuptake inhibitor I could still very much regain my desires but it takes a lot of mental energy to diffuse the effects of a drug. [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sublimation_(psychology)[/url]
    Many people in the past beyond Freud and Nietzche noticed how animalistic urges have a role for things like civilization and scientific progress, and when it comes to me, I can confirm that the predominance of my genius and search for insight, is essentially sexual. I have a state that favors mental activity, and my sex drive lends itself towards having those constant yearnings, appetite, and hunger for something like sex but towards more beneficial things, like knowledge and civilization. At the end of the day, I'm no different from a petty criminal with high sex drive, but I have an Aryan endocrine system that favors what I can do with my brain than theirs. And I can agree that free flowing testosterone in a male like me allows for the progress of civilization but in others it leads them to do stupid things, and they can't even handle testosterone at all, even if they have low sex drives.

    No, I think you get this wrong.
    This isn't about learning the sex life/drive of asexuals. It's just asking your opinion on them.
    accept or reject
    friendly or stay away
    disturbing or don't mind
    weird or normal
    support them or don't care. etc.

    Actually you're right I didn't answer your questions appropriately, then again I'm not in my right mind at that time, and won't be in my right mind again as I take a few things in the next few minutes once again. But the question is a non-issue as I do believe asexuals can become sexual if they know what can finally arouse them and get them off (but for many so-called asexuals, they never have that satisfaction). What needs to be done first though is an appropriate definition of what an asexual is. Are they defined by the lack of desire, a lack of arousal, a lack of stimulus, a lack of getting it up to the actual sex act itself, or by a non-sexual lifestyle? Then again, many privately self-ascribed asexuals are in fact sexual people, which you can learn from asexuals.org and read about how they cope in their sexual relationships with their partners and how some of them even have partaken in things like orgies, so they can very much live sexual lifestyles and are apart of the sexual majority, enough that they are not stigmatized by the sexual majority. So it's really hard to identify an asexual person, let alone ever stigmatize or knowingly befriend them. On the other hand, the social stigma always seems to be attached, at least in this culture, to chronic masturbators, like in the form of the character Bud Bundy, who couldn't get any and in one Married with Children episode masturbated in the library and was caught on camera. And the stigma is also attached to a person like me who can actually speak of a sex drive, and not just a simple case of arousal and stimulus, but who doesn't seek sex (but will consider it in exceptional cases) and not pull a Bud Bundy (...well that might be a bit disingenuous as I'm capable of marathons, and I guess I'll delete this statement later...). See the way my sex drive plays itself out, is that I'm yearning to find someone attractive enough to want to actually bone, but I'm not necessarily aroused by someone unless I've established a standard of what my sex drive eventually discovered was attractive to me (but I don't think that accounts for what is considered asexuality, but I'm my mind is altered now and have a problem writing more or at all).

    Asexuals are for real. Nearly 1% of all people are asexuals. There are many types of asexuals. Homoromantic asexuals, heteroromantic asexuals, biromantic asexuals , polyromantic asexuals, aromantic asexuals etc. a study conducted by Brock university's department of psychology found that both biological and psychosocial factors contribute to asexuality and women are more likely to suffer from asexuality than men.

    A cousin of mine is asexual in a non-lesbian relationship. We consider and mostly treat them as a normal married couple. We'd never consider inviting one without the other. The only difference about them is that when they visit I give each one their own separate room. But during the day they are inseparable.

    Together for more than 30 years now, I haven't noticed them suffering their asexuality.

    for an asexual, no rejection at all but not absolute acceptance sometimes. It depends on one's character.
    A person good at heart is more likely to be accepted, but i cannot maintain monogamous relationship with him alone.

    I knew one guy who seemed quite asexual, despite being hottern hell. That was just an observation and based on his girlfriend's complaints. He was not the cleanest of individuals, either. He told me one night when we's been drinking he had been sexually assaulted at one point, so that might account for his whole sexual attitutde and approach to hygeine (maybe he did not WANT to be as attractive as he was, and was unconciously trying to repel people). He was a really great guy otherwise (I worked with him for several years). His girlfriend left him for another really hot guy. (who presumably bathed more)


    So yeah, I believe asexuals exist but it is highly unusual, and likely tied to a feeling of shame associated with sex.

    Never met one, but unlike the elusive "bisexual" I am going to guess an Asexual actually exists.

    I don't "think" anything about them. Why bother?
