The thought of sex grosses me out some times. I'm fine with it most of the time,I am writing a book with a rape sex scene,and a few sexual references,but sometimes it just makes me squirm.

It's only human sex too. I'm fine with any other sort of mating,except dog or cat because of the whole overpopulation thing,but..?

Why?

I don't think we'll ever figure this out because it's a chicken-and-egg thing. Does sex gross you out because you're asexual or are you asexual because sex grosses you out? That said, I think it's probably a good thing to not enjoy writing a rape scene.

Sex doesn't gross me out, I'm just not interested in it.

Eras: I know I swear your like my e-mom
Eras: It a long story but I dedcided to give him a chance.
Otter Spirit: .... Is anyone in here actually related to somebody else in here?

Is an as3xual someone who doesn't realize that sex is spelled with an 'e'?

I think that's a good way to put it. I've always thought of sex as gross and a bit odd. But I don't know which came first. Maybe the grossed out part.

Yeah, that's a really interesting way to think of it, I never have like that. :cake:

For me, I think it's the former. I used to be unbelievably grossed out by sex, I thought it was extremely disgusting and I wanted absolutely nothing to do with it.... Recently, though, I spent a few weeks living with some extremely sexual friends of mine, and now I'm completely fine with sex, and I'm actually a bit curious about trying it myself.... So it was that sex grossed me out 'cause I'm asexual, but that's since changed. :)

So yeah. I think everyone has different reasons for feeling like they do about sex. *shrug* :cake:

"Who - is Robbie?"
"He's a robot, Mr. Robot, sir." She stretched to tip-toes. "He's about so high, Mr. Robot, sir, only higher, and he's very nice. He's got a head, you know. I mean you haven't, but he has, Mr. Robot, sir."
The Talking Robot had been left behind, "A - robot?"
"Yes, Mr. Robot, sir. A robot just like you, except he can't talk, of course, and- looks like a real person."
"A - robot - like - me?"
"Yes, Mr. Robot, sir."
To which the Talking Robot's only response was an erratic splutter and an occasional incoherent sound. The radical generalization offered it, i.e., its existence, not as a particular object, but as a member of a general group, was too much for it. Loyally, it tried to encompass the concept and half a dozen coils burnt out. Little warning signals were buzzing.
