So, I have noticed there are no strictly Ace threads on the community site (gasp! lol) so I thought I would make one for us! I wanted to make a place for us to share our experiences and have a space where even if we don’t feel comfortable with sharing our identity in the real world, we can have this space for ourselves. You can use this as a place to get some issues off your chest, some experiences you have, questions about the community, ect.
Even if you are not Ace, you can still be apart of the fam. The more people who know about us, the better! All we ask is you are here with an open mind, and an open heart.
To those of you who are questioning and not familiar with what Asexual means, it is simply that we lack any sexual attraction. This of course comes as a spectrum and here some easy terms here that are the most popular.
Asexual: The Umbrella term, but is also used for people who lack any sexual attraction at all (like me).
Demisexual: For people who experience sexual attraction after a long time of getting to know someone, and no, this is not just being Allosexual (meaning you have sexual attraction) For most allo people, sexual attraction is almost instant, for Demisexuals this is a long, long process with trust and commitment that could take YEARS for any sexual feelings to develop.
Graysexual: For people who experience very little sexual attraction and at very low amounts.
There are other terms… but there are so many lol. These are the three most commonly used. Even if you are questioning, don’t worry, you don’t really need a label, for me personally it just helps identify and validate my experiences it changes nothing about myself. Let’s start the thread by sharing a bit about yourself and why you are here and let’s get some discussion going! Let’s make this a positive community guys!
