Asexuality is the lack of sexual attraction to others, or low or absent interest in or desire for sexual activity. Asexuality is distinct from abstention from sexual activity and from celibacy[8] [9] which are behavioral and generally motivated by factors such as an individual's personal, social, or religious beliefs.

Acceptance of asexuality as a sexual orientation and field of scientific research is still relatively new, [2] [12] [5] as a growing body of research from both sociological and psychological perspectives has begun to develop.

Various asexual communities have started to form since the advent of the Internet and social media. The most prolific and well-known of these communities is the Asexual Visibility and Education Networkwhich was founded in by David Jay.

Asexuality is sometimes called ace a phonetic shortening of "asexual" [14]while the community is sometimes called the ace communityby researchers or asexuals. The Asexual Visibility and Education Network defines an asexual as "someone who does not experience sexual attraction" and stated, "[a]nother small minority will think of themselves as asexual for a brief period of time while exploring and questioning their own sexuality" and that "[t]here is no litmus test to determine if someone is asexual.

If at any point someone finds the word asexual useful to describe themselves, we encourage them to use it for as long as it makes sense to do so. Asexual people, though lacking sexual attraction to any gender, might engage in purely romantic relationships, while others might not. With regard to sexual activity in particular, the need or desire for masturbation is commonly referred to as sex drive by asexuals and they disassociate it from sexual attraction and being sexual; asexuals who masturbate generally consider it to be a normal product of the human body and not a sign of latent sexuality, and may not even find it pleasurable.

Many people who identify as asexual also identify with other labels. These other identities include how they define their gender and their romantic orientation. Regarding romantic or emotional aspects of sexual orientation or sexual identityfor example, asexuals may identify as heterosexuallesbiangaybisexualqueer sexuality, [20] [21] or by the following terms to indicate that they associate with the romantic, rather than sexual, aspects of sexual orientation: [17] [21].

People may also identify as a gray-A such as asexual gray-romantic, demiromantic, demisexual or semisexual because they feel that they are between being aromantic and non-aromantic, or between asexuality and sexual attraction. While the term gray-A may cover anyone who occasionally feels romantic or sexual attraction, demisexuals or semisexuals experience sexual attraction only as a secondary component, feeling sexual attraction once a reasonably stable or large emotional connection has been created.

Other unique words and phrases sexuality in the asexual community to elaborate identities and relationships also exist. One term coined by individuals in the asexual community is friend-focusedwhich refers to highly valued, non-romantic relationships.

Other terms include squishes and zucchiniswhich are non-romantic crushes and queer-platonic relationships, respectively. Terms such as non-asexual and allosexual are used to refer to individuals on the opposite side of the sexuality spectrum. Asexuality is not a new aspect of human sexuality, but it is relatively new to public discourse.

Smith of The Guardian is not sure asexuality has actually increased, rather leaning towards the belief that it is simply more visible. He also included a category he called "X" for individuals with "no socio-sexual contacts or reactions. Lehmiller stated, "the Kinsey X classification emphasized a lack of sexual behavior, whereas the modern definition of asexuality emphasizes a lack of sexual attraction.

As such, the Kinsey Scale may not be sufficient for accurate sexuality of asexuality. Further empirical data about an asexual demographic appeared inwhen a research team in the United Kingdom carried out a comprehensive survey of 18, British residents, spurred by the need for sexual information in the wake of the AIDS pandemic. The survey included a question on sexual attraction, to which 1. Since less sexually experienced people are more likely to refuse to participate in studies about sexuality, and asexuals tend to be less sexually experienced than sexuals, it is likely that asexuals were under-represented in the responding participants.

The same study found the number of homosexuals and bisexuals combined to be about 1. In a survey conducted by YouGov in1, British adults were asked to try to place themselves on the Kinsey scale. There is significant debate over whether or not asexuality is a sexual orientation. The first study that gave empirical data about asexuals was published in by Paula Nurius, concerning the sexuality between sexual orientation and mental health.

Results showed that asexuals were more likely to have low self-esteem and more likely to be depressed than members of other sexual orientations; A similar trend existed for depression. Nurius did not believe that firm conclusions can be drawn from this for a variety of reasons. In a study, Yule et al. The results of male and female participants were included in the findings.

Yule et al. The same was found for female asexual participants over their heterosexual counterparts; however, non-asexual, non-heterosexual females had the highest rates. Asexual participants of both sexes were more likely to have anxiety disorders than heterosexual and non-heterosexual participants, as were they more likely than heterosexual participants to report having had recent suicidal feelings. With regard to sexual orientation asexual, asexuality may be argued as not being a meaningful category to add to the continuum, and instead argued as the lack of a sexual orientation or sexuality.

The suggestion that asexuality is a sexual dysfunction is controversial among the asexual community. Those who identify as asexual usually prefer it to be recognized as a sexual orientation. Because of these facts coming to light, it is reasoned that asexuality is more than a behavioral choice and is not something that can be cured like a disorder. Research on the etiology of sexual orientation when applied to asexuality has the definitional problem of sexual orientation not consistently being defined by researchers as including asexuality.

While some asexuals masturbate as a solitary form of release or have sex for the benefit of a romantic partner, others do not see above. The Kinsey Institute sponsored another small survey on the topic inwhich found that self-identified asexuals "reported significantly less desire for sex with a partner, lower sexual arousability, and lower sexual excitation but did not differ consistently from non-asexuals in their sexual inhibition scores or their desire to masturbate".

Johnson, is explicitly devoted to asexuality in humans. She portrays them as invisible, "oppressed by a consensus that they are non-existent," and left behind by both the sexual revolution and asexual feminist movement. Johnson argued that society either ignores or denies their existence or insists they must be ascetic for religious reasons, neurotic, or asexual for political reasons.

In a study published in in volume five of Advances in the Study of Affectas well as in another article using the same data and published in in the Journal of Personality and Social PsychologyMichael D.

Storms of the University of Kansas outlined his own reimagining of the Kinsey scale. Whereas Kinsey measured sexual sexuality based on a combination of actual sexual behavior and fantasizing and eroticism, Storms used only fantasizing and eroticism. Storms, however, placed hetero-eroticism and homo-eroticism on separate axes rather than at two ends of a single scale; this allows for a distinction between bisexuality exhibiting both hetero- and homo-eroticism in degrees comparable to hetero- or homosexuals, respectively and asexuality exhibiting a level of homo-eroticism comparable to a heterosexual and a level of hetero-eroticism comparable to a homosexual, namely, little to none.

This type of scale accounted for asexuality for the first time. In a study by Paula Nurius, which included subjects most sexuality whom were students at various universities in the United States taking psychology or sociology classesthe two-dimensional fantasizing and eroticism scale was used to measure sexual orientation.

Based on the results, respondents were given a score ranging from 0 to for hetero-eroticism and from 0 to for homo-eroticism. Respondents who scored lower than 10 on both were labeled "asexual". Results showed that asexuals asexual much lower frequency and desired frequency of a variety of sexual activities including having multiple partners, anal sexual activities, having sexual encounters in a variety of locations, and autoerotic activities.

A paper written by Asexual June Cerankowski and Megan Asexual, titled New Orientations: Asexuality and Its Implications for Theory and Practicesuggests that asexuality may be somewhat of a question in itself for the studies of gender and sexuality.

The asexual movement challenges that assumption by challenging many of the basic tenets of pro-sex feminism [in which it is] already defined as repressive or anti-sex sexualities. This formula, if dissected scientifically and proven, would support researcher Simon LeVay 's blind study of the hypothalamus in gay men, women, and straight men, which indicates that there is a biological difference between straight men and gay men.

InCerankowski and Milks edited and published Asexualities: Feminist and Queer Perspectivesa collection of essays intended to explore the politics of asexuality from sexuality feminist and queer perspective.

Each part contains two to three papers on a given aspect of asexuality research. One such paper is written by Ela Przybylo, another name that is becoming common asexual asexual scholarly literature.

Her article, with regard to the Cerankowski and Milks anthology, focuses on accounts by self-identified male asexuals, with a particular focus on the pressures men experience towards having sex in dominant Western discourse and media.

Three men living in Southern Ontario, Canada, were interviewed inand Przybylo admits that the small sample-size means that her findings cannot be generalized to a greater population in terms of representation, and that they are "exploratory and provisional", especially in a field that is still lacking in theorizations.

Another of Przybylo's works, Asexuality and the Feminist Politics of "Not Doing It"published intakes a feminist lens to scientific writings on asexuality. Pryzyblo argues that asexuality is made possible only through the Western context of "sexual, coital, and heterosexual imperatives". In this article, Przybylo once again asserts the understanding of asexuality as a cultural phenomenon, and continues to be critical of its scientific study.

CJ DeLuzio Chasin states in Reconsidering Asexuality and Its Radical Potential that academic research on asexuality "has positioned asexuality in line with essentialist discourses of sexual orientation" which is troublesome as it creates a binary between asexuals and persons who have been subjected to psychiatric intervention for disorders such as Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder.

Chasin states that asexuality has the power to challenge commonplace discourse of the naturalness of sexuality, but that the unquestioned acceptance of its current definition does not allow for this. Chasin also argues there and elsewhere in Making Sense in and of the Asexual Community: Navigating Relationships and Identities in a Context of Resistance that is important to interrogate why someone might be distressed about low sexual desire.

Chasin further argues that clinicians have an ethical obligation to avoid treating low sexual desire per se as pathological, and to discuss asexuality as a viable possibility where relevant sexuality clients presenting clinically with low sexual desire.

Bogaert argues that understanding asexuality is of key importance to understanding sexuality in general. This definition of asexuality also makes clear this distinction between behavior and desire, for both asexuality and celibacy, although Bogaert also notes that there is some evidence of reduced sexual activity for those who fit this definition. He further distinguishes between desire for others and desire for sexual stimulation, the latter of which is not always absent for those who identify as asexual, although he acknowledges that other theorists define asexual differently and that further research needs to be done on the "complex relationship between attraction and sexuality.

In an earlier article, Bogaert acknowledges that a distinction between behavior and attraction has been accepted into recent conceptualizations of sexual orientation, which aids in positioning asexuality as such.

An academic work dealing with the history of the asexual community is presently asexual. For some, being a part of a community is an important resource because they often report having felt ostracized. Some question the concept of online community, while others depend on the online asexual community heavily for support.

Elizabeth Abbott posits that there has always been an asexual element in the population, but that asexual people kept a low profile. While the failure to consummate marriage was seen as an insult to the sacrament of marriage in medieval Europe, and has sometimes been used as asexual for divorce or to rule a marriage void, asexuality, unlike homosexuality, has never been illegal, and it has usually gone unnoticed.

However, in the 21st century, the anonymity of online communication sexuality general popularity of social networking online has facilitated the formation of a community built around a common asexual identity. Communities such as AVEN can be beneficial to those in search of answers to solve a crisis of identity with regard to their possible asexuality. Individuals go through a series of emotional processes that end with their identifying with the asexual community. They first realize that their sexual attractions differ from those of most of society.

This difference leads to questioning whether the way they feel is acceptable, and possible reasons for why they feel this way. Pathological beliefs tend to follow, in which, in some cases, they may seek medical help because they feel they have a disease.

Self-understanding is usually reached when they find a definition that matches their feelings. Asexuality communities provide support and information that allows newly identified asexuals to move from self-clarification to identifying on a communal level, which can be empowering, because they now have something to associate with, which gives normality to this overall socially-isolating situation.

Asexual organizations and other Internet resources play a key role in informing people about asexuality. The lack of research makes it difficult for doctors to understand the causation. Like with any sexual orientation, most people who are asexual are self-identified.

This can asexual a problem when asexuality is mistaken for an intimacy or relationship problem or for other symptoms that do not define asexuality. There is also a significant population that either does not understand or does not believe in asexuality, which adds to the importance of these organizations to inform the general population; however, due to the lack of scientific fact on the subject, what these groups promote as information is often questioned.

The first was held at sexuality World Pride in London. The final flag had been a popular candidate and had previously seen use in online forums outside of AVEN. The final vote was held on a survey system outside of AVEN where the main flag creation efforts were organized.

The flag colors have been used in artwork and referenced in articles about asexuality.


Beyond that, asexuality is different for every sexualitt. Some still seek out relationships, others are content with close friends or on their own. Some asexuals have no interest in dating or companionship.

Woman B: To me, it means that someone doesn't feel sexual attraction toward other people. I don't think it means you can't tell when someone is attractive. Even sexuality I can tell a man or woman is physically attractive and dresses nice, I don't fantasize about doing anything sexual with them. In all my relationships I've been OK with nonsexual intimacy but I've never wanted to go beyond that.

I knew it was expected but it's not something I thought sexuality most of the time. Woman A: It was my sophomore year of college. Before then, I had been very dismissive of how I felt. I dated and had boyfriends and so sexuality wanted to understand why everyone was so into being in a relationship.

I took this human asexual course as an elective and that was where I first heard of asexuality. It was a lightbulb moment for me. Of course. Woman B: I was around 18 or 19 when a friend mentioned asexuality in an asexual way, but Asexual didn't learn the asexual definition and start identifying as asexual until I was I'm 23 now.

I think I was At one point, I made up having a girlfriend back home so I would have an excuse to not hit on women. Woman A: It was aesxual confusing.

I was angry asexual myself wexuality not finding the right boy. I think for women especially, so much of the media geared towards teens is about couples and couple drama and romance. Woman B: Among my friends, I asexual usually dismissed. If the topic of sex came up, they stopped me before I started talking because I'd told them about having no interest.

But I didn't have many moments where I thought there was a problem with not caring about it. Man A: Sexualityy gave asexual a lot of anxiety. For a while, I felt like I was just really late in terms of developing. I was trying to self-diagnose sexua,ity look things up online when Asexua, found out what asexuality was.

I got made fun of a lot because I just came off as very awkward. But I still need to really explain myself asedual people.

Woman B: It seems like if you aren't a sexual person you don't get recognized in books, movies, or television. But now I just move on to something else instead of giving time to things that don't sexuality me. Woman A: Yeah, and for a variety of reasons Asexual prefer to masturbate instead of have sex. But I only do it very sexuality.

Woman B: I don't feel it but I do believe feeling the desire for sexual release is different to sexual attraction. I don't think someone having that desire means they want to make anyone else involved. Man Sexuality Sometimes I feel like I need sex, but aseexual a very basic way.

Woman B: No. I don't even like the idea of actually doing it. I have to really focus on the physical sensation. Woman B: Yes, with two different guys.

It was incredibly boring and not something I planned on doing again after the first time. It's something I could do without.

Woman A: I have had a few, especially when I was younger. Woman B: I've had three boyfriends and one girlfriend. Woman B: I've sexuality dated another asexual person but I don't have a preference for orientation. Woman A: I sure did. It feels like dating someone with a very intense hobby, like a sports nut. I can sit asexjal it the same way I can sit through a football game. Before Asexual started identifying as asexual, it was difficult to explain that my lack of interest in sex was not a disinterest in him, so we have had sex because of that.

We still do, just not very often. Two or three times a month at most, and sometimes not at all. We have talked about sex not being a part of our relationship in the future, and he's a little more open to the idea.

I think women see me as a catch in certain respects. They think they can deal with the lack of sex. Some women think they can sexuality my sex drive going. I still have emotions and I can still make connections with people. Woman B: I think one asexual the biggest misconceptions is that because our orientation sexuality a minority, we don't know ourselves well enough to identify this way.

Another is sexuality it's a childish thing, that we're not adults until we feel sexual attraction like everyone else. Man A: That we just have low sex drives.

I spent long enough trying to get myself into that mindset. Woman A: Until recently I didn't really understand the concept of a "turn-on. And even now it's really just a theory to me. It's not a foreign concept. But I would say that the idea of arousal is a little difficult to grasp. Not on a physical level, but seeing someone and getting turned on. Woman B: My advice is to do as much research as needed to help you feel sure of it.

No one else is inside your head so no one else can decide your orientation. And adexual worry if one day you might feel sexual attraction. It doesn't invalidate your asexuality if your orientation changes. Woman B: People who identify as asexual can want a relationship or only desire platonic friendships.

How old are you now?

What was it like growing up asexual in a world in which everyone is assumed to want sex? What is it like sexuality you now, as an adult? On the AVEN [Asexuality Visibility and Education Network] website, asexuality is defined as an absence of sexual attraction to other people — meaning that some asexual people experience a physical desire for sexual release, they just have no desire to act on it with another person. Do you ever feel that desire for sexual release, and if so, how does it differ from sexual attraction?

Do you masturbate? Woman A: Yes. See the previous question. Have you ever had sex? If so, what was the experience like for you? Do you desire a romantic relationship? If so, do you prefer to date other asexual people? Or people of a certain sexual orientation sexuality. If you have dated a sexua,ity person, did you feel any pressure to have sex?

But as any asexual person would tell you, it's none of the above. For most adolescents and adults, feeling sexually attracted to another person — whether someone of the same sex, opposite sex or outside of the gender binary — is a fact of life. There are some people who might experience sexual attraction under certain circumstances but feel that their experiences align more with asexuality than other orientations. People who fit under that umbrella are called "aces" for short, and can identify as asexual, gray-asexual or demisexual.

Someone who is gray-asexual, or graysexual, experiences sexual attraction rarely or only in specific circumstances or they might experience sexual attraction without the accompanying sex drive. Graysexuals also refer to people who fluctuate between periods of experiencing and not experiencing sexual attraction. Someone who is demisexual only experiences sexual attraction if there's a strong emotional bond.

That makes asexual people different from those who choose not to have sex for religious reasons or to avoid pregnancy. It doesn't mean that aces have intimacy issues. Many people on the asexuality spectrum are romantically attracted to others and might want a deep emotional relationship.

They might want to fall in love and cuddle or hold hands, or they might want a platonic relationship that goes beyond traditional friendship. In other words, for many aces, Netflix and chill really does mean Netflix and chill. Aces are often told that they just haven't found the right person yet. Some medical and mental health professional may still misunderstand asexual identity.

As a result, asexual people may be told that their lack of sexual desire is due to a mental illness or a disability. An ace group marches at the Toronto Pride Parade on June 24, Because many asexual people are transgender or non-binary, some professionals may attribute their lack of sexual attraction to hormone therapy, medications or other causes. While those things can influence sex drive, Langevin says, it doesn't make that person's asexual identity any less valid. Asexuality is typically defined as a lack of sexual attraction to another person.

But sexual attraction is different than sex drive, the body's physiological response to sexual stimulus.

Many aces still experience a libido — it just isn't directed at a specific person. Some aces might masturbate or choose to engage in sexual activity in certain instances, but for the most part, aces have no desire for sex.

Once I was discovering more about this community and what it meant to be asexual, the idea was also to show the differences within the spectrum: gray-sexuality, demisexuality, aromantic, etc. I met most of my subjects online, where the community thrives. The Asexual Visibility and Education Network AVEN forums are a popular place to meet and connect, to discuss and grow, pose problems, and make themselves known, free of stereotypes.

In the Spanish language there is a known problem with confusing sexual orientation with a physical condition; people think of a "problem" of libido or even genetics. Many people's first reaction tends to be prejudiced, often believing asexual people are gay or afraid of sex. Asexual people are often told, "Well, you haven't met the right person yet," or the absurd theory of the "magic penis" that eventually will come to "save them.

The reality is that sexuality is a spectrum and we all navigate within it in different ways. Asexual people also live their asexuality in an individual way. Each person is unique and we aren't entitled to have opinions on how they live it. For me, it was enlightening to better understand the concept of romantic attraction separated from sexual attraction. I had to contextualize it again — my first encounter with the term "asexual" was eight years ago, and I was eight years younger.

Beyond the sexual orientation — or lack of it — the concept of being able to have a partner without sexual attraction was totally new to me. It was also one of the first times I heard about the concept of being gender neutral or gender fluid — which is not entirely connected with the sexual orientation concept, but several people in my project identify as this and was also eye-opening for me.

Lily's story is particularly powerful to me. She is over 80 years old and told me of the relief in being able to name what she was feeling — or what she didn't feel — and who she was. The importance of representation and, for her, identification was visible in her tearful eyes, explaining to what extent she had to survive the stigma of the "frigid" woman. In this work, I want people to understand that asexual people are simply that — people. Any age, any gender, any background, any look, these are just people with a different sexual orientation, the one in which they are simply not attracted to anyone.

Unless they are gray-sexual or demi-sexual, of course I mentioned it is a spectrum before, right? Gabriel H. Contact Gabriel H. Sanchez at gabriel.
