Carn: show me: Okay, this is directed at no particular person, but look at a relationship like this: You are a hetero guy, and you have a guy buddy who is really cool. Likes the same sports as you, likes to drink the same kind of beer, likes the same kind of movies, etc. You hang out with this guy all the time and it's a blast. Thing is, after a while, you find out he's not hetero. Not by a long shot. He wants to put it in your butt. Badly. I know you wouldn't really like doing that, but you would, every once in a while, because it makes your bestest friend ecstatically happy, right? Once a week? Once a month?

If you went camping with a bunch of guys and one night they all held you down and had sex with you, would you tell anyone about it or take the secret with you to your grave?


wanna go camping?

Again, I do sympathize with this woman, I know being that different from those around you is never easy.

But I think what makes this such an emotional subject for people is that it does seem like just the height of arrogance to think that simply by virtue of what a great person I am, I should be able to have a marriage that does not include any of the aspects of marriage that I don't like.  Marriage is a grand compromise, not an ala carte situation.  It's the exact same thinking that drives men in polygamist societies.

I mean, you have to wonder what she thinks she is bringing to the table, and it just seems like she has to believe that the mere pleasure of her company is so uniquely valuable that it should outweigh the unbelievably enormous consolation she's asking a potential partner to make.

I read it as her wanting to find a man like her (more exposure means more likely to reach a potential partner?), rather than hoping a heterosexual guy would conform to her orientation. If it is indeed the latter ... I actually agree with you. I wouldn't want to have a relationship with a guy and feel like I was denying him something that made him happy, just as I think a man who loved me probably wouldn't enjoy feeling like I was more or less humoring him (instead of genuinely having fun in bed).

Sairobi: I am emotionally attracted to men. I don't fall in love with ladies, I fall in love with men. It's pretty simple. Romantic attraction can occur independently of sexual attraction.


Is that the opposite of who you are sexually attracted to? Because if so I have a slew of naive questions to ask you. If not, I can honestly say I can't separate the two.  In fact the romance intensifies the sexual attraction. I'm not saying someone can't be asexual, clearly that is the case.  More than one farker lives in a sexless marriage. I also know that I would never get to being in love if sex wasn't involved. It makes me feel intimate in a way that no amount of talking, cuddling or hugging ever could. Knowing the difference would make it impossible to consider myself in love without it. It is fundamentally different then the love I feel for my daughter or my mother. But then again there isn't romance there either.

Erix: I just want to understand what a gender preference is based on if she's truly asexual.


But it is not unknown for people to, for instance, only prefer dance partners of the opposite sex, even though actual sex act is (at least conventionally) out of the question.   Like an adult and  16 y.o. jailbait dancing, or brother and sister dancing.

Probably just a habit or a culturally conditioned response.

It could be like that.

Even if you never ever think about sex, what happens to asexuals if for example they accidentally brush their genitals against a washing machine or something? Assuming their parts work and are physically like everyone else's doesn't that bump send a message to the brain, "Hey, that felt...interesting". I can understand them thinking sex with another person being icky, but not even liking getting yourself off? That seems like it would be a treatable psychological problem to not get those feelings or be afraid of them, And why are asexuals being compared to LGBT people? That group likes the sensations as much as any human or species on this planet.

Fafai: Men have the higher sex drive so it's a pretty stupid and selfish thing to search out a man for all the perks of a romantic relationship without the sex.


All other things being equal, yes, you might have better odds looking for a woman who would want a romantic relationship without sex than a man.  But she may have any number of reasons for preferring a male candidate.  And if she's up-front about the "no sex" part, I fail to see anything selfish or stupid about it.

Being asexual doesn't exclude being capable of sexual stimulation, arousal, masturbation, or even climax. It's just usually not going to be with another person in mind Some asexuals have a libido, some don't. It doesn't have to be the result of psychological trauma, though it can be.

I am asexual, but romantically attracted to guys. (I'm a lady, so I guess that makes me hetero-romantic?)  I understand where you're coming from; I imagine it works that way for the vast majority of people! For me, though, I may feel have intense romantic feelings for a man ... I just have no interest whatsoever in boning him. The two feelings (emotional and sexual) are separate. I think the important thing is that both ways are perfectly valid! I don't really mind if you think it's strange or even incomprehensible (because I recognize I am a complete failure, evolutionarily speaking), just as long as you don't say it doesn't exist/I haven't met the right person/etc.

vsavatar: I don't get it.  Why is it such a problem to meet your partner's needs?  Why does that have to be compromising yourself?  So what if you don't get off while having sex with your SO?  That doesn't mean you're compromising your principles.  It means that you're meeting his needs, and in exchange, he is probably having sex a lot less than he would otherwise want.  My wife and I have both done things on nights where we weren't otherwise in the mood because we wanted to make the other one happy.  Neither of us feel like we were compromising our principles in doing so.  Call it a form of "stress-relief" or a "tension breaker" if it makes you feel better, but to be so selfish pretty much guarantees that she's never going to find anyone.


It's true.  You don't get it.

And again, if she's up-front about it from the very beginning, there's nothing especially selfish about it.

But it IS interesting how defensive people are getting, throwing this word "selfish" around.  Clearly the concept of asexuality makes some people VERY uncomfortable.

show me:  Thing is, after a while, you find out he's not hetero. .....but you would, every once in a while, because it makes your bestest friend ecstatically happy, right? Once a week? Once a month?

If I wanted to be his BOYFRIEND, I would.
Thing is, she wants to be someone's GIRLFRIEND but without the sexual attachment.

In the scenario above, I would tell the guy that I love being his best friend and as long as he does not mind craving me without satisfaction we can still be FRIENDS. I would NOT tell him that I am totally willing to be his relationship partner under the caveat of no sex, knowing he would want to have sex with someone he is in a relationship with.

I have homo friends that want to do me. Fair enough. I have chick friends I would love to bang (almost all of them). But, since I am not willing to enter into a 'relationship' with them under the caveat of no-sex (either way it went) we all remain friends and we don't enter into an 'asexual' one-sided relationship.

I think there's a term for coercing/forcing someone to have sex when they don't want to.  Give me a few minutes.  I'll think of it.

Nice try, but "(not getting) off while having sex" is not the definition of rape. I doubt anyone here is truly suggesting anyone force themselves upon this woman sexually. We're just saying she should lighten up and choose (consent) to compromise.


Telling someone that it's her duty to have sex, that she OWES her husband sex, isn't rape.  But it does make you a pretty craptacular excuse for a human being.

Well there's your problem, you've got it backwards!  Ah.. yeah, I'm kidding, and I'm a terrible person.

Seriously though, I long knew that sexual orientation was a scale, not a dichotomy, but it never occurred to me that there might be a sexual/asexual scale that essentially runs perpendicular to orientation.  Makes sense though, and I could see the two scales intersecting at any point along either continuum.

You said that right. This has been an interesting read of a thread for just that reason. I mean this woman is trying to find someone that feels the same way nothing wrong with that and as I understand it there are people out there like here so more power to her. Do I understand asexuality, no, do I have to to have compassion and hope she finds what she's looking for no. And this woman isn't responsible for all y'all farkers failed sexless marriages.

Aw, thanks for being so cool about it! That's basically all I ask for -- I don't need people to understand (because, again, I get how alien it is to most people), just accept.

Erix: aerojockey: Erix: aerojockey: notmtwain: Why look for a man in the first place if she is truly asexual?

Is that not allowed?

If it's completely asexual, why does she care what sex her partner is?  Honestly, why would it matter?

If that's her preference, is that not allowed?

No one said it wasn't allowed, settle down.  I just want to understand what a gender preference is based on if she's truly asexual.


As has already been pointed out in the thread, there are different "kinds" or "levels" of asexuality.  Some asexuals still experience romance, and can be (in some sense) heterosexual, gay, or bisexual (in that they feel ROMANTIC but not SEXUAL attraction towards one or both sexes).

And "truly asexual" is something of a misconception: nobody really gets to point to someone and say "she's not a TRUE asexual."  It's really up to the individual to self-identify.

If I may draw a parallel, there is an issue with bisexuality where there are people who argue that a certain individual isn't TRULY bisexual because they aren't EQUALLY attracted to both men and women.  There are indeed "gay-identified bisexuals" (as well as "lesbian-identified" and "heterosexual-identified" bisexuals) who have a preference for one gender over the other, in addition to the "50-50 bisexuals," but it's insulting and pointless to argue that some of these aren't "true" bisexuals.

Not being asexual myself nor knowing any personally, however, this is somewhat speculative, and if I am wrong perhaps someone with more knowledge will correct me.

2013-02-01 05:41:28 PM  
Just want to point out the the 1976 Webster's Unabridged defines "asexual" as "a: having no sex or functional sex organs b: produced without sexual action or differentiation c: not relating to sex". And yet, when you look it up in Wikipedia you're taken to a long page which can only be the result of people not understanding that the word "sex" in the original definition is a noun. Anyone who identifies themselves as asexual and was born with or currently has sex organs is a fool, though it seems that it's only been happening without any hint of irony for the last ten or fifteen years or so. "Emotionally troubled" was a good enough description until recently; it's a shame that useful words keep getting misused until they lose their useful meaning.

I do have a libido! It's just not directed at any person. Like, I never see a guy and think sexy thoughts. My brain usually goes:  gosh, he has a nice nose, or dat facial structure. It's more of a detached aesthetic appreciation? Which makes sense because I'm an artist, and therefore a very visual creature.

I have had my share! Obviously of my own making, haha.

... That is a very good question. I do occasionally yearn for romantic love, but I guess I am very lucky in that I am perfectly content being by myself. But, man, that is a hard question, because you're right in that they're definitely different -- I love my mom differently than I love my friends differently than I would love a man -- but how to distinguish them? I definitely do feel all the stuff associated with romantic love, though, like all the stuff you cited. I just don't connect those feelings to any sort of sexual desire. I imagine most people experience something particularly romantic, and their brains (and bodies) say, "now kiss!" For whatever reason, mine just doesn't make that leap.

(Sorry, that probably wasn't a very helpful answer, but you've given me food for thought. Thank you.)

Citrate1007: Wants man to provide for her financial needs, won't put out.

Good luck with that, there may be a gay republican that wants to run for office.


Don't try to inflict this nightmare on Idaho.  We have enough problems as it is

sobe: Held up pretty good for 49. Not too bad. Wait what? 39? Ok, well she's showing her age a bit. Still, she's British.

29??!!  No no no no no . That must be a typo.


If she's as thin as I think she is, and add in the vegan (which does sometimes mean you aren't getting all the nutrition you should if you're not careful) I'm not surprised her face wrinkles up like that when she smiles.

Plump older people have less pronounced wrinkles than thin older people, in general of course.

Thanks for being so candid Sairobi.

Do you think some asexual people are so-oriented because they are visually displeasing to the opposite sex, or have image issues that prevent them from making that leap from romantic to sexual? Im only asking because I witnessed an insecure asexual Farker in a past thread basically alude to that conclusion.

I could see a man with a tiny penis being afraid of heterosexual interaction, and then call himself asexual. Not because he lack feelings for the opposite sex, but because the act of sex would be dehumanizing to him. Do these kinds of situations exist in the asexual community, or am I just ignorantly way off the path here?

if he actually *had* feelings for the opposite sex, he wouldn't dehumanize himself.  he's simply gay.

Gone In 26 Minutes: God. All of these 'alternate' sexualities sound like people are trying too hard to make themselves seem unique and do so by damaging themselves and the people who have the misfortune of meeting. I fully believe that there is no such thing as asexual people (that aren't brain damaged in some way.) Sexuality is a core part of what makes us human and it's really a very simple thing. Everything else is just there to complicate it because people need to increasingly complicate EVERYTHING.

Women who call themselves asexual are either emotional stunted, repressing themselves in some way or just lying to try to get attention from people they think won't look at them as a hole to fark in an attempt to meet what they think is a 'nice guy.'

You're either heterosexual, homosexual or bisexual. Those are the only things I will ever accept as naturally occurring in humanity. Everything else is just bullshiat in a vain attempt at making themselves look like a special snowflake.


6/10

If I didn't already know you were a troll, I'd be mad.  So, well done.

You can go back under your bridge now.
