    Ok well I thought I was asexual for a while. I never really wanted to have sex before I was 19 with anyone personally. But then like when I was 19 I got a really bad crush on a guy. And things turned into more than that. And I liked him and that encounter. Now after that I have like seen guys I am attracted to but it's far and few inbetween like there can be 40 guys and none I'll be interested in. It's rare that I do find guys attractive I have a type but the type is just rare around here. I normally find no one sexually attractive and I've never been romantically attracted to anyone male or female. I like do see men as more viably attractive. I don't see that with women I only think they are pretty but nothing that attracts me. A guy can be undressed and it can remind me of sex. Not always but sometimes. Which never happens with a nude woman no matter how hot she's supposed to be. Also since I was 11 I always had fantasies and material I either create or sought out throught telephone tv or computer or books etc. Like porn. And it's always been gay porn. I masturbate usually to that. But I personally don't want to have sex with a guy normally it seems. I've also never had a boyfriend. Does this make me asexual?

    I am no expert but I would describe you as mostly asexual with homosexual tendencies.

    It is possible you could be aromantic demisexual or asexual/grey-asexual.

    Have you had a look around AVEN? I believe the members there would be able to advise you somewhat better. Personally as someone who once identified as an asexual myself (I don't use labels anymore; too restricting) it sounds like you could be one of the things I mentioned above.

    yeah I think that's how I feel mostly.

    Also on top of all that I don't get turned on by my crushes I have now when I'm on drugs I'm totally asexual. Like there's this guy I'm very attracted to draws my blood frequently in a study I'm in and I usually find it unconfortable him doing it because I don't like being close in proximity to people I feel that way about. But when I'm on the drug I feel absolutely nothing. No attraction whatsoever.


    I'm also 22 now. And I'm kind of a virgin I haven't been sexually active since that encounter I talked about in my op.

    I don't really experiment. I don't really need sex in my life. I just don't look for it much generally.

    Demisexual
    Grey-Asexual

    A quote from the Grey-Asexual page from the AVEN Wiki
    Spoiler:
    Show

    People who identify as gray-A can include, but are not limited to those who:

    • do not normally experience sexual attraction, but do experience it sometimes
    • experience sexual attraction, but a low sex drive
    • experience sexual attraction and drive, but not strongly enough to want to act on them
    • people who can enjoy and desire sex, but only under very limited and specific circumstances

    That's fine then. Just do you! As long as you're happy you've got nothing to worry about.

    For sexual orientations beyond straight, gay (includes lesbianism, please stop getting offended guys), bi and asexual please head over to Tumblr. The users there seem to have extensive knowledge of sexuality thanks to years spent researching in the labs and publishing peer-reviewed papers.
