“Intimacy every six months with my husband I endure”: how asexuals live, fall in love and build families

When I realized all this to myself, I began to study this issue closely. By the way, knowing English helped me a lot, because there is almost no information in Russian. Now I consider myself an expert in this topic. There are asexuals who love sex and orgasms, but at the same time do not want to interact with people and enjoy masturbation. There are asexuals who fall in love with people of their own sex – homoromantic asexuals, and there are those who fall in love with the opposite sex – heteroromantic asexuals. There are also those who do not fall in love at all and never experience sexual attraction – aromantic asexuals.

In addition, there is a spectrum of asexuality, which includes nine or more different manifestations. The most common of these are: demisexuality – sexual attraction that occurs only after the formation of a very strong emotional connection with a person, and graysexuality – sexual attraction that occurs extremely rarely and spontaneously or only under certain circumstances. As a rule, asexuals change in the redistribution of this particular spectrum.

Asexuality is an orientation that is easier to ignore because it doesn’t translate into action. That is, an axexual simply does not have sex and that’s it, but homo- or bisexuals do, and therefore society notices them. When I told friends and family about my asexuality, none of them took it seriously. After that, I heard more than once that I simply “didn’t have the right man” or “I’ll get better over time” and other rude rubbish. I feel great, I don’t need pseudo-advice, and I don’t need to be “corrected”.
