Re: Asexuality in Men - Research

This is a great idea!

Also, can anyone direct me to an asexual community that does not admit sexuals to its membership? Many thanks! :halo:

Re: Some help I hope on what is an asexual

Hi, PiF!
I think that your interpretation of what those women meant is skewed, unless you have first-hand information. I would say that they meant: 'where have you been all my life', as 'whew, now I don't have to participate in sexual activity with this man'. Possible? :halo:

Hello flergalwit!
And you are a sex-positive, why/how? Just curious! :halo:

What is the definition of a "sex-positive asexual"? :halo:

Re: Some help I hope on what is an asexual

Hi, Ciri!
AVEN's definition of "sexual attraction" is in their Front Page/FAQ area. :halo:

Re: Some help I hope on what is an asexual

Hi, Harmony!
My dictionary defines celibacy as "the state of being married." Also, "chaste" is defined as " abstaining from carnal love."
That is how I was able to reconcile myself with the idea that celibacy is a matter of choice; after all this time! :halo:

Re: Some help I hope on what is an asexual

Hello, PiF! "an attraction that is based on a sexual motivation..." - That is a fine definition of 'sexual attraction'. My question is why are we attempting to re-write AVEN's words? "Sexual Attraction: Desire to have sexual contact with someone else, to share our sexuality with them....

Re: Some help I hope on what is an asexual

Hi, "jmb"! One thing briefly, I did read your complete post, just did not respond to it in its entirety. At AVEN, when the larger discussion of 'what is attraction' was at its onset, the word celibacy was used to give an example of where the usage of a choice was being attached to certain ...

Hello "Noctis Arbor"! I enjoyed your introduction very much. I believe that trees are sentient beings, and would like to discuss that at some future time. Also, I am new to posting on this website, but am just kind of 'jumping into the fray'. "Ciri's" idea about people marrying t...

Hello "jmb"! I will only respond to the part of your post where you quote me, and give your opinion. You're saying that I am referring to people as celibate, not asexual or 'not attracted' to another. This is the pigeon-holing behavior that I thought I was escaping, by conversing in a plac...

Re: Some help I hope on what is an asexual

[b]@PiF:[b] Your idea of "grey/demi/semi..." is for a "sexual", is a fine premise. I agree and thank you for sharing. Being an aromantic asexual myself, I would like to add my feelings on the topic of romanticism. I cannot 'buy into' the idea of cuddling, kissing, even with no to...

Hi, Disjointed.

Even though I submitted a post to you on the "Community & Public Visibility" site yesterday, I wanted to keep things in a semi-proper order (ugh), and acknowledge your Intro.

I look forward to more posts between us!

Welcome, fellow New-Member. :halo:

Re: Plan B Ad

Hello, Disjointed. Thank you for the information. I do understand that this is a rather slow forum, and I like your reasoning. Just for the record...I was born in the 1940's, so I am most assuredly an adult. The important part though, is probably that I consider myself being a mature individual who ...
