2. There is a unrealistic expectation on relationships in real life which has possibly been ruined by fantasy anime relationships.


Yeah right. I will find my Lilly and have a 'too friendly' relationship with an Akeno.

But in all seriousness, I don't see it as 'fantasy relationships'. Just because others hide behind a wall of emotion (after a string of bad relationships which is their fault), or are boring, or other issues, that's their problem and I ain't going to lower my standards.

I haven't seen many people on the forums claim to be asexual. Could you point to some examples?

Even then, I really don't see why this matters in the first place. Seems to me like you're just assuming their claims are false and trying to play psychologist despite the fact that they're complete and utter strangers you've never met before.


Don't mind this user, he has weird things to say from time to time.

There is no such thing as an "asexual" human. Worms, bacteria, and a few other lower creatures are "asexual" meaning that they have no gender or secondary sexual characteristics and self-reproduce. Very few higher life forms are asexual (even the majority of plants rely on pollination). HUMANS are sexual creatures and we reproduce sexually. By definition, an asexual human is impossible.

Further, a lack of libido (sex drive) is associated with numerous illnesses. A doctor will often inquire as to the voracity of one's libido to check for overall heath and to diagnose diseases.

There is nothing at all wrong with being disinterested until the "right one" comes along. It not uncommon for people with a lot of ambition to forgo romantic or sexual relations (as was the case with Tesla). NOT being a horndog can be a very good thing. But if there simply is no interest, medical screening should be conducted. This could be the sign of a disease or developmental anomaly.

Furthermore, calling a duck an "elephant" does not make it weigh any more. Making noise while pretending to be something that is biologically impossible is stupid. Taking on a moniker like "asexual" when you don't know the meaning of the word makes you a fool. This is not a movement. This is not a calling. Being disinterested in members of the opposite sex does NOT make you a special class of person. Anyone who describes themselves as "asexual" is an asshat.

While I've yet to factcheck this, I do feel that asexual are being rather err....pretentious about it. Just my two cents.


P.S. This might be an interesting read.

It's a highly charged field apparently.

https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/magnetic-partners/201406/asexuality

Now one definition of asexual is the lack of a sex drive and the other is the lack of attraction to direct your sex drive too apparently.

I don't know why we care so much about each others sex lives. If a guy/girl doesnt like to get down I dont understand how that is anyone elses business.
But to answer OP's question I think more people say they're asexual than actually are. they've struck our sexually for so long its easier to call yourself asexual.

Asexuality is a type of orientation. Like all other orientations, it has to do with how your brain works. And it isn't a lack of sex drive as much as it is a lack of attraction. Meaning they don't feel the need to have you-know-what with anyone.

And saying no one can be asexual is like saying no one can be gay or bi.

It might be slightly overused these days, but probably because it is more socially acceptable. I mean people who haven't had or aren't currently in a relationship with a woman/man are usually ridiculed to no end by the arrogant ones who do have a "significant" other. If you had to choose between being labeled a lonely loser or an asexual by bothersome individuals, I'm quite sure the answer is more or less obvious.
