According to the Asexuality Visibility and Education Network, “An asexual person is a person who does not experience sexual attraction.” But it’s more complicated than that. Asexuality is a broad spectrum, and anyone who identities with or has experience on any part of it is welcome to contribute here. No one is actually forbidden from contributing (because I hate that), but keep it on topic and respectful.
As always, I want to encourage open discussion of any topics related to asexuality, aromanticism, graysexuality, etc. in your own lived experience and in their representations in the media. But since conversation starters help, here are a couple:
- Do you consider yourself asexual or aromantic? Or both? Or neither?
- Feel free to discuss your interests and boundaries when it comes to sex to the extent that you are comfortable.
