Asexuality is, in a broad sense, a lack of sexual attraction to either sex. Unlike abstinence, which is a choice to abstain from sexual activity, asexuality is a sexual orientation. Although asexuality is a lack of sexual attraction, it does not imply lack of a sex drive, or libido.

Asexuals may or may not experience romantic attraction and will often identify by one of the following romantic orientations:
1. aromantic - lack of romantic attraction to either sex
2. biromantic - romantic attraction to both sexes
3. heteroromantic - romantic attraction to the opposite sex
4. homoromantic - romantic attraction to the same sex

Asexuals may engage in sexual activity for one or more of the following reasons:
1. to satisfy one's own sex drive, or libido
2. to satisfy a non-asexual partner's sexual desires
3. to satisfy intellectual curiosity

Some asexuals experience sexual attraction to a very finite extent. Gray area asexuals will rarely experience sexual attraction while demisexuals will only experience sexual attraction within a well-established relationship.

The asexual pride flag is comprised of four horizontal bars. The colors of these bars, from top to bottom, are black, gray, white, and purple. The meanings of these colors are listed below.
black - asexuality
gray - gray area asexuality and demisexuality
white - sexuality (a nod to comrades of asexuals who are not themselves asexual)
purple - community
As an aromantic asexual, the aspect of asexuality that I consider to be most frustrating is its general low awareness.

Asexuality is a sexuality in humans. It isn't to be confused with being celibate or aromantic or asexuality in plants. Ace is short for asexual.

Asexuality is where there is no/lack of sexual attraction or drive. The aces usually have romantic, emotional and aesthetic attraction to someone, but just not sexual attraction.

People who are asexual can have romantic relationships and have hugs/kisses but just don't want to have sex.
Person 1: I'm asexual
Person 2: What's that?
