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?

The purest definition of asexual, is literally anti sexual. This means that they neither want or need sexual contact with another person to feel fulfilled.

However, some asexuals do want or even like sexual contact with their romantic partners. However, 95% of the time, it is solely for the benefit of their partners as many dislike sex or find little to no pleasure in the activity.
This is my own history.

me: I am asexual
person: But you've had sex before...
me: yes. But that doesn't mean that I wanted it.

person: you mean it was rape?
me: No. It was for their benefit. Plus I wanted to know what a sexual relationship was like. I quickly figured out that I do not like or want sex.

person: oh... you're weird.

me: its not weird, it's just unusual.

Person: were you abused ?
Me: sigh. Not before I worked out I was asexual.

person: you frigid then?
Me: are you stupid? No. I'm okay to have sex with my romantic partner if they really want it. For me, it does NOTHING.

person: then why do you have a romantic partner?
Me: because I am human and I like being able to have cuddles and kisses. I want a normal loving relationship, just without the sex.

Person: *now educated* oh... guess it makes things less of a headache with birth control and STDs then...

Me *slaps head*

Asexuality is a sexual orientation in which people do not experience sexual attraction. This isn't to say they can't engage in sexual activity, but only about 4% of the asexual community do enjoy and want sex.
I don't find people sexy, I'm 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.

A lack of sexual attraction. How straight males feel about men for example. They do not. An asexual person can fully enjoy sex and desire sex with other individuals however they arnt not particularly aroused by peoples image. Can be aroused by peoples actions and have fetishes and kinks.
Bill has never found himself to be interested in other people based solely on looks. Its been confusing home for awhile now so I think I should introduce him to the concept of asexuality

Lacking sexual attraction to people; not feeling sexual attraction towards others.

(A-sexuals can get horny, and can have sex, they just don't look at someone they like and think sexually of them.)
Girl: So have you and your girlfriend had sex yet?

Boy: No, we don't really need to, we're both a-sexual.
