    On the point below:

    Would you, as asexuals, have sex for the sake of your sexual partner; in the event you had one?
    Personally, it is all very dependent on the situation. If she was just craving the sex, no. Because it wouldn't change how I feel. Though if she did try for both of our benefit, which is most likely the majority of the time, that possibly. All depends how I feel too.

    Personally, no, but that's due to other factors (mainly the fact that I'm also aromantic and unlikely to ever actually get a partner). But I know quite a few aces who will, maybe because they feel that it will make the relationship better, to try for kids etc. Obviously, we are al very different and will all act differently so some aces may be fine with having sex, some might only go as far as hugs and not even kisses. Every ace has their own tipping point about how far they are willing to go and don't push the boundries

    Really interesting stuff, thanks for sharing guys!

    Edit: Just read my initial post and actually I meant that it would be your partner that is sexual, but also your serious romantic partner; not just a fling as obviously you're not interested in that! Apologies for the poor phrasing

    BristolFresher15 no. Simply. I view sex as pointless unless there is a point to having it. I'm in a relationship and we don't need sex for us to be happy.
