Have you ever met someone and instantly felt the urge to have sex with them?
If your answer was not an immediate and definite yes, then you are asexual. Congratulations!
Believe it or not, finding out is actually the easy part. The hard part is coming to terms with it. So I hope this blog will be able to help you with that! If you want to find out more then keep reading…
If you’ve just realised that you might be asexual, then you’re probably racking your brains to think of any reason that can’t be true.
“Well I’m still young… I might just be a late bloomer…”
“I’m not sure… If I think about it I might be able to come up with something…”
“I just haven’t met the right person yet… I’m sure I would if I got into a relationship…”
That was me, not too long ago. It took me so long to actually come to terms with the fact that there was something different about me. But now that I have, it’s a truly beautiful thing.
I can only say that my life has changed for the better since then. I still haven’t figured everything out, but I’m learning more about it every single day. And for the first time, I actually feel proud of my sexuality.
As with anything, there are different levels of asexuality. Most people view it as a spectrum. On one end, there are those who are completely disgusted by sex. Those are perhaps the most obvious. But on the other end, there are those who do experience sexual attraction in specific circumstances. In those cases you might still be questioning yourself.
My aim on this site is to better help people understand themselves and their sexuality, and also to help build a community support network. If you are looking for support then feel free to contact me at any time. As always, I wish you all the best on whatever stage you are at in your own personal journey.
