An asexual is an individual who is is not sexually attracted to either men or women. Important classifications to note:

Repulsed Asexuals: Asexuals that are opposed to the idea of having sex with any other individual. Some may masturbate to release any sexual tension, though some even find masturbation repulsive.

Flexible Asexuals: Asexuals that are more open to the idea of having sex and may be willing to have sex for the benefit of a sexual partner. Some flexible asexuals may even enjoy having sex.

Aromantic Asexuals: Asexuals who have little or no romantic drive. They usually prefer to be single. Some even never experience crushes. Aromantic asexuals are usually repulsed asexuals.

Romantic Asexuals: Asexuals who have a romantic drive and often have a desire to find a significant other. Romantic asexuals can be either flexible or repulsed. Flexible ones are usually willing to date sexuals and asexuals, repulsed ones usually prefer to date other asexuals when possible. Romantic asexuals are split into a few subcategories.

Hetero-Romantic Asexuals: Asexuals who are EMOTIONALLY attracted to individuals of the opposite gender.

Homo-Romantic Asexuals: Asexuals who are EMOTIONALLY attracted to individuals of the same gender.

Bi-Romantic Asexuals: Asexuals who are EMOTIONALLY attracted to individuals of the same gender and the opposite gender.

Pan-Romantic Asexuals: Asexuals who are EMOTIONALLY attracted to individuals of all genders.
1) Whenever me and my friends get together and start talking about our sex lives, Tom always drops out of the conversation. I think he might be asexual.

2) Please don't ask me to explain the difference between emotional and physical attraction. I am a repulsed aromantic asexual who has never experienced a crush so I wouldn't know.

3) Dumb Girl: OMGZ all my boyfriends have sucked I'm going to become asexual!

Asexual Girl: Since you are having bad luck with men, and you apparently have the power to magically change your sexual orientation, why not become a lesbian and give women a try?

Dumb Girl: *blank stare*

4) Asexuals do not experience sexual attraction. They are like the opposite of a bisexual, or a pansexual if you want to be technical. Is that really so difficult to understand?

In human terms someone who experiences no sexual attraction to anyone or anything.Some are completely devoid of sexuality, while some have a sex drive where attraction is not a factor, if they masturbate it is only a physical act with no attraction or 'sexual' thoughts
Is a very rare and strange sexual orientation

1. A person or thing with no sex; to have no sexual genitalia; of no sex.

2. A person or thing with no sexual drive toward either sex or gender; a person or thing with no interest in sexual partners. Asexual people are not necessarily uninterested in romantic relationships, they are simply uninterested in sex.

A person who does not experience sexual attraction to either gender, but may still experience romantic and physical attraction and even participate in sexual acts for the physical pleasure, etc.
Asexual culture and it's definition still evolving. There are many sub-groupings of asexuals and this often leads to a misunderstanding of the terms actual definition.
No, she isn't celibate. she is asexual.

One who is not sexually, physically, or mentally attracted to either sex (male or female), or anything else for that matter (animals, themselves, people in general, etc.).

One who avoids (whether naturally or on purpose) love, dating, sex, crushes, intimacy, relationships, or anything of the likes.
John does not find women attractive and never wants to be in a relationship with one, however, because he feels the same way about men, he is a-sexual.

As an asexual myself, I've seen many misconceptions about this term. Asexuality is not a "homogeneous category" . Although I don't speak for all asexuals and this isn't an exhaustive list, I'll hope to give more insights to this term since it's only been recently known to the scientific world.

According to Aven, an asexual is a person who "does not experience sexual attraction". That's it. That's all.

There are common misconceptions about asexuality:

1. "Asexuals don't like sex": Some don't want sex. But some enjoy having sex for the pure pleasure of having sex itself.

2. "Asexuality is just a phase/a choice": No, it's an orientation. People who identify as asexuals were born that way.

3. "You will never be in a relationship": There are many different types of asexuals in the world. No matter what, love is the main thing in a relationship for any sexual orientation.

4. "There's something wrong with you": There's nothing wrong with them. Asexuals are just as capable as anyone to lead and maintain a good, happy, and healthy life.
Person 1: You say you're an asexual but you love having sex? Asexuals don't feel any sexual attraction towards people, you're not an asexual!

Person 2: I'm asexual. I know because I am. Just because I'm not sexually attracted to people doesn't automatically mean I don't like sex.

From my point of view, and my definition, the term asexual has some variations of definition. Asexual can either mean that you're not sexually attracted to people, meaning you don't desire anything sexual such as having sex, or asexual can also mean that you aren't attracted to anything. Nothing will 'trigger' feelings towards something or someone.
