What it means to be asexual

What it means to be asexual

Someone who is asexual experiences little to no sexual attraction.

Asexual people use the term “ace” or “aces” for short.

Aces prefer not to pursue sexual relationships with other people.

However, they can still experience other forms of attraction.

They can still have a romantic attraction,   attracted to someone based on how they look or even want an emotional connection with someone.

Asexual people beleive that wanting to have sex with someone is different from wanting a romantic relationship with them.

Asexuality is not the same thing as celibacy or abstinence.

While abstinence is about deciding not to have sex at all, asexuality is usually temporary.
