Many people seem to have misconceptions about what it means to be asexual. Being asexual usually means that you are not interested in sex or romantic relationships. Some asexual folks may be interested in romantic relationships, but they are not sexually interested. Asexuality is a valid, healthy lifestyle!
- Being asexual is not “boring”
- There is NOTHING wrong with people who are asexual
- It is not “just a phase”
- Being asexual is not a choice
- Just because asexuality isn’t portrayed in the media, doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with it.
Asexuality is an orientation, just like being gay, or straight, or bisexual. Some people say they do not believe in asexuality, but studies show that 1% of the population have never been sexually attracted to another person.
