Asexual word on scrabble, Asexuality

Definition Of An Asexual Person

Typically, an asexual is a person who is considered someone who does not experience sexual attraction. These people are different than demisexuals who experience sexual attraction only when they experience a deep connection. Asexuality is a spectrum, like sexual orientation, with some people having little to no sexual attraction while others experience sexual attraction. There is also graysexuality, where a person may experience sexual attraction very rarely or only under specific circumstances.

This is someone who is either repulsed or completely disinterested in the idea of sex.

Sex-neutral

This is when someone isn’t repulsed by sex but who doesn’t actively seek it. These people may have sex in some cases, particularly if they want to please a partner.

Sex-positive

This defines someone who doesn’t feel sexual attraction to others but will still have sex for pleasure.

Why Asexual People Have Sex

Asexual people might still masturbate or have sex; they just don’t experience sexual attraction. Reasons an asexual person may desire to have sex is to share the physical pleasure of sex, conceive children, pleasure a partner, give and receive affection,
