    I just don't honestly get it. What is so good about slapping genitals together with someone that every single Monday my classmates talk about that.

    Am I missing out something fundamentally important here? I'm just curious since aren't there any easier ways to trigger serotonin, oxytocin and other hormones and neurotransmitters production on your brain if you want to experience satisfaction? Or am I asexual or smth because I have never experienced attraction to anyone?

    19. I'm just genuinely curious, since of course I understand the reproduction function but how come it seems to be all about sex anyway even if none of my friends wants to reproduce. I don't specially mind it either, it's not like I'm too bothered with it, but I feel like I might be missing out something.

    When you find the right person you will know why the world is full of love songs, art and poetry.

    It's fun and feels good (unless u sleep with someone who is **** in bed). It's ok, just wait til you find someone. There is no rush.

    I suppose you are right. In a way I don't feel I need love to my life, but in a way I'm curious. I just have never felt anything even remotely romantic towards anyone, so I'm just wondering if I'm asexual and/or aromantic. Well, I suppose this isn't thing to be too stressed over.

    The physical act is not the important part; without an emotional attachment it becomes just another pleasurable activity rather like eating chocolate.

    When you do finally get a strong loving bond with another person, then sex becomes an expression of that love which has the ability to transcend words and bring an overwhelming sense of belonging, contentment and fulfilment.

    It's not something that everyone experiences and certainly not to the same level of intensity.

    Thank you.

    I guess I will keep living as before, and if I by some twist of fate end up in relationship perhaps I will then understand. I suppose being school bulkied and despised by other kids and disliked by my parents and like never having a normal social relationship has impacted on my ability to form normal relations with people. Or perhaps I'm just too introverted and shy by nature, I don't know, but it is an interesting aspect on myself to me personally. Either way, I'm quite happy now and I see I can just go on with my life and not stress about this. Thank you for taking the question seriously, your answer was quite what I'm looking for. I guess this is one of thing that cannot be learnt by observing.

    To be honest, you sound like a very well balanced and caring person but have not found others who will appreciate you - as yet.

    From your post I will say it's only a matter of time before someone special enters your life.

    I have only ever had sex with one boy who I have been with for three years and although yes it feels great, the best bit is feeling that close and intimate with someone you really love and feeling safe
