asexual is a natural occuring instance in the brain. like bieng gay or lesbian or strait. most people are confused by this when you tell them; because they cant grasp the concept of someone not having any sexual interest, but it doesn't mean you can't love someone. even though they still have a sex drive they wish to refuse it; because they dont see anyone that they would like to have sexual relations with. as of wanting a child in a relationship artificial incimination can be an option. calling your self asexual doesnt mean you cant masterbate, but only to masterbate to lower that sexual tention inside the persons mind. even though this is possible for both sexes. more common in females(from my own observation), but also occuring in a few males, and if any of you have taken a phych class you know the build up of horimones in a male body without any release builds up and ends up in a situation to put in laymen's terms "blue balls".

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.

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.
