As for people "considering" it. I don't think that is really possible. There is a difference between celebacy and asexuality. Asexuality lasts a lifetime and isn't something that is chosen. With celebacy there is often a choice (eg priests), or it is a reaction to terrible trauma, and it rarely lasts forever. With the trauma response, it is often revulsion/fear of sex ie active avoidance, rather than just lack of interest.


Wow born that way maybe? Never heard of anything like that before, haha. All I hear on the news is about gay people.

There was one period of time (now a bit too) that I don't think about romance, relationships or sex. I even thought of reaching 'enlightenment', that means to abstain doing or even thinking of it. But sometimes the loneliness really gets to me (I hate it) so yes, humans are afterall humans. I am not sociable in real life (no friends sorry) but I still do need to do a bit of socialising (on the net or otherwise) so yes, I still do think of it even though I would try my best not to. (I don't want to be hurt again that's why)

i believe asexuality is acceptable and normal, especially now in our modern era where personal preference is held in high regard.
sometimes, it is brought about by trauma and sometimes it just comes naturally. others follow it as some sort of lifesytle. either way, its just preference.
to be honest, i am like this also. but mine was brought about by trauma. i have yet to meet one who was naturally born being like that. if ever, i believe that it is not exactly that he/she is born that way, rather, it is how he/she was brought up that made him/her that way

I have no problem with it, and consider it "natural" because it occurs naturally, humans are part of nature aren't we?
I've never considered it myself, however I can conceive as to why people would.


agreed

Also know some les. who originally liked guys but started hitting the other way and stuck to it..

I have a hard time believing that people can be totally asexual. I mean, that's just sad. No body is destined to be lonely like that.

The only people I know who claim to be asexual actually fap to hentai pics, so it'a not like they're not aroused or interested in sex. If a hot chick wanted them, I'm sure they'd have sex with her, or at least consider it...

It's reasonable for a person to shun sexuality, though. Society obsesses over it, and it warps peoples minds. It can be considered a very corrupt and distasteful topic to some. If no one cared about sex and it were only used for reproduction, people would act differently, perhaps better.

tell that to the monks, also i said i wish to reproduce asexually. I didn't say you can reproduce sexually.
This is how reproduce asexually work. At some point in life. A person will feel the desire for sex and feel the sexual arousal. That is where the reproduction begin. How do i know about this? i saw it on Nova or Nature once on TV.

Asexual would suck. first i don't know any guy who would want to go though the birthing proses. second that would take a lot of the fun out of it and finally Viralmarketing if you really don't want to have anything to do with guys then you really don't need to with all the toys out there and technology. You can pleasure your self and have a kid with out ever having sex.

i dont think asexuality is something a person is born with. i think it is a very interesting mental state, in which the person realises that they can live happily without a sex life. they are of course giving up the chance to produce life, but the person may not feel it necessary.

i personally am not like that, i have sexual urges sometimes, but i uderstand the pihilosophy of it, and have experienced the feeling a few times that sex is not as imortant as everyone (the media included) make it out to be.
