Are any of you asexual?
Do you know anyone who is asexual?
I understand heterosexuality, homosexuality, pansexuality, bisexuality etc, but asexuality is something I'm still trying to wrap my head around. I know the basis of asexuality is the lack sexual attraction, thus having no interest in or having a sex drive. Contrary to popular belief, it is possible for asexuals to have relationships. From what I've learned in psychology, humans are in need for intimate physical contact (which does not necessarily pertain to anything sexual, ie kids want to be hugged and want to be close to their parents), but to what extent does this contact run? Or is everything based more on an emotional level than physical when it comes to asexual relationships?
