    Hate from the 'sex positive' movement

    @alienanteater, sorry to hear that you've had such horrible experiences - as Huggles may not be appropriate sends a virtual kitty to pet- Reference the topic, I'm not surprised that there's a sex-positive movement, although I've never encountered it. However does sound like the sort of thing which descends into Waco style cults.

    I maaaay have released the video early for no reason... Just a short one about sexual words and stuff. Also, I bought a fancy camera that was a couple hundred pounds off on Prime Day, so next week's video won't be such awful quality hopefully!

    Sounds like he had a long term crush on you and took your rejection badly; it's understandable to be upset, but there's no need to be a dick about it. Leave it a while, he might get over his outburst and feel bad about it later.

    I think it was actually a bit more complicated. I asked if we could continue being friends and he responded with 'I'm a cold-blooded motherfucker and you don't want to be near me.' And how exactly was a romantic/sexual relationship going to be somehow 'safer' for me? I think he's just being weird and wants to look more tough and 'macho' because he thinks it's impressive. Either way I guess we're done.

    Touch Starvation V.S. Touch Aversion in relationships?

    I wouldn't worry about it too much. I mean, we're supposed to have 5 fruit and veg a day, 2 litres of water and 8 hours of sleep, and how many people actually manage all that? Most people still make it into their 70s/80s (in Europe anyway). OP, if it's something that's deeply troubling you, you could see a therapist. They might be able to help you "overcome" your aversion if it's an anxiety thing, like with phobias.

    Aesthetic attraction

    Not mecha - but there are times I'll notice the car not the driver.

    Sounds like you dodged a bullet there. Still, that's an awful thing to say.
  10. This is actually worrying. I'm strongly touch-adverse (from birth too) and I didn't think I could feel the need to be touched (the idea felt kinda preposterous) but I could be touch starved, and I still really don't want to touch anyone... it's disagreeable and stressful and it makes me wince, so the idea that I need touch to be healthy is a bit scary...

    Aesthetic attraction

    Neither, cars all the way, especially classy saloons and tuners

    Fictosexuality

    Personally I consider my attraction towards anime characters as part of my bisexuality, but if someone who is attracted only to fictional characters still considered themselves asexual because “they’re just fantasies” then I could see where they’re coming from.

    That wasn't a friendship, that was ten years of their trying to get "with benefits", a true friend would support your decision, not abandon (keeping it polite) you

    Aesthetic attraction

    I suck at telling what is sexual and what is aesthetic, but I'm probably more towards guys. I really like their eyes but then I get annoyed because anime is 100% better.

    That would be an interesting spin on it, maybe set in modern-ish times.. he gets unintentionally famous because of his ability to swim without coming up for air..

    Hello... I’m new here. Anyone from south east asia?

    A belated welcome to AVEN! Perhaps a QPR (Queerplatonic Relationship) is the answer? http://wiki.asexuality.org/Queerplatonic You'd still have to find someone who's willing, and explain what it means, but you could be as close or as distant as you want. Incidentally, it is a tradition here to welcome new members by offering cake, and here's a Rapa Nui (Easter Island) Cake,

    Fictosexuality

    I think that it depends. If you could make the fictional character of your choice real and would actually like to have sex with them, that doesn't sound quite asexual to me. (I for example am fictoromantic, and I actually desperately want my beloved to be real. I am the last person you could call aromantic.) But if you are only attracted to them because they are fictional and you have no interest in actual sexual contact as in the aforementioned scenario, I would say the label fits.

    This or That?

    Frankenstein's Monster, because I think he's a lot more interesting. Kefka or Sephiroth?

    Now that you mention it, in Japanese hot springs, you bathe naked with other people! Nothing sexual about it though. Some of the activities on the test can be innocent, depending on the context.

    Fictosexuality

    Yes, I'd say Fictosexuals count as Asexual, since fantasies, in general, don't count if they don't reflect what you want in reality.
  23. Are you more aesthetically attracted to guys or girls? Or maybe to both equally? Personally- I'm more aesthetically attracted to guys,but if some girl is really pretty, then I also like to take a look on her.

    Fictosexuality

    I mean even if I'm demi I still prefer fiction to people as it's much simpler. So idk.

    The New Aromantic Thread (v.1.5)

    IMO, people who don't feel romantic feelings are aromantics. Its a different kind of feeling and differs somewhat from person to person. For me its an addictive, giddy feeling accompanied by weird sort of craving to be around the person. What a person wants to do as a result of these feelings again varies, some like cuddling, some like giving gifts, sexuals like to do sexual activity, etc. Many aromantics don't pursue relationships because they are just happy with friendships. Being aromantic doesn't necessarily mean not interested in relationships. On AVEN, relationships pursued by aromantics is called QPR. BTW, I have been romantically in love and also been in QPR. The feelings involved were vastly different. But its literally the same as romantic relationship in terms of the amount of effort you have to put into QPR. Lots of communication, planning etc. Lots of hard work. I am not sure what you mean by "more than friends". I call people who are more than friends as best friends (I dont have any unfortunately. If I ever find one, I can just happily live forever after). Someone with whom you can be yourself but don't have to deal with typical relationship stuff (relationships are a lot of work). Personally, I feel 'best friend' is the best of both worlds- friendships and relationships. No need to commit. Dont have to think about them all the time. Dont have to adjust my life around them, like moving in with them etc. Based on what little you have said, feels like you are an aromantic who just wants best friends.

    Wow. That's rough. I can't even imagine a friend saying something like this.. If it were me, I would probably guess it's a joke. What an **shole!
