I have a friend who is in his twenties and as far as I am aware, he has never slept with, kissed or even been on a date with anyone. I am pretty convinced that he is asexual. It actually came up in a conversation because there was an article in a magazine about asexuality and he kind of mentioned that he was 'sort of like those people' in that he doesn't really have a sex drive and rarely looks at porn or even masturbates or anything.
He also seems to be fairly devoid of romantic interest in women too and on the whole doesn't seem to be too bothered about spending time with other people at all. He has mentioned a desire to eventually have a family but I don't know whether this would just be a formal arrangement to make him feel comfortable.
The thing that gets me is that one could almost think that this guy had aspergers or some form of autism except that he seems to have a deep understanding and appreciation of very deep, emotive art and music but he just doesn't seem to experience any of it himself. He knows and sees what upsets, angers etc. other people but it is all of completely clinically, academic interest to him. I honestly don't think he has ever cried or shouted since he was a baby.
Do you know anyone who is completely Asexual? Watch

No because I don't like honey :L
It depends how you term 'asexual'. By the dictionary it's 'someone who lacks the desire for sex'. And that's me. But that does not mean to say I can't be turned on :L I just don't feel like I want to go all the way.
This must mean you do not have to go through the pressure and headaches and the sheer frustration of trying to get laid?

there is nothing wrong with smiley faces, food always tastes better when it's in the shape of something
edit: why the hate on smiley faces, some people obviously didn't have their turkey dinosaurs today

Surpressing love for the sake of others doesn't make you asexual. I think she has used the wrong word.
On another note, its not something i'm prepared to argue about at 4.33am.

Several people I know claim to be.
Though I doubt I actually do know anyone who is asexual.
I'm probably just arrogant, but I find it hard to get my head around the idea tbh.

I don't. It'd be quite nice to have a friend who I know wouldn't be interested in talking about sex though!
I am a bit confused about the quote in the first post though; who wouldn't choose cake over sex?? Two slices please!(Original post by rememberme)
I'll tell a little bit about his personality. He is very intelligent but mostly on an intellectual level. He still behaves in a way that most people would percieve to be quite immature. Even though he's away at Uni most of the time, looking after himself. When he comes home my mother in particular treats him as if he is a child, which he seems to encourage. He is ridiculously analytical and scientific about everything so his attitude towards sex really surprises me, when you think that its so important. I don't think he is interested in non-sexual romantic relationships either.(Original post by Guy Secretan)
Maybe he just thinks he can't get girls that's why he is scornful. Does he get attention off girls how does he react if he dies? Has he ever spoken about girls like said wow she had a nice arse?
