    As it's something I've never heard of, it attracted me to reading this post, I don't know that I can really answer it as the fiction person, are they a cartoon as in a comic? someone in a book? or maybe a fictional character on TV or in a film? Then, I guess it's what the individual feels, do they experience sexual fantasies? I don't really know, but it's an interesting question, I loved Rachel on Friends (Jenifer Anniston), but never had any sexual thoughts, though I do think she's a stunningly beautiful lady, I wouldn't say no to a cuddle though, but then, I am a cuddle slut
  3. I am settling on the gray-a label for myself but, I have some other variations on that. I am wondering, if I don't like kissing at all and find that gross, does that fall under "asexual/gray-a" or does that fall under "aromantic"? I am in a relationship where I've fallen in love, so I don't know if aromantics do that. But I wouldn't call our relationship romantic in any way. So I was just curious. I guess I am also a little confused about what aromatic means. Not romantically attracted? What does that mean? How does it differ from asexuality or gray-a? What is romantic attraction? Is that the same as love or an ability to love? Also I am curious about cupiosexual.... I think it's called. Is that the same as being sex-favorable? (For a long while I thought I couldnt be Ace because someone told me I couldn't be asexual or gray a because I like sex. Then I learned about sex-favorable asexuality and gray-a.) What if you dont have a physical need for sex, but you do like it when it happens? Currently my (non-asexual) boyfriend and I don't have sex, but I wouldn't mind if we did every once in awhile. It would be nice. (Still if we never did, which is where we are now, I wouldn't be all that upset about it.) I'm kinky, and kinky things are the only thing that turns me on, so if we do kinky things thats enough for me.

    Aesthetic attraction

    I have never been aesthetically attracted to another guy but women I am, it's strange but for some reason, non-binary tomboys just scream out to my attraction levels but I have no interest in actual men lol, strange o.O

    Frustrated Asexual Furry

    That thing about going mainstream actually sounds... kind of smart. Reminds me of how (IMO) many online communities like YouTube used to feel more fun and creative before the big cooperate stuff took over... I agree with wanting better press too. I'm sick of seeing people hating on furries and wishing them horrible deaths simply because "it's weird" (If that's the best argument you can come up with, I don't have any more time to waste talking to you).
  6. I do hope that it doesn't contribute to my current bad mental state... 😕

    Excited to see where this goes!

    @ThatRangerGirl A belated welcome to AVEN! Incidentally, it is a tradition here to welcome new members by offering cake, and here's a Robert Downey jr Iron Man Cake,

    Aesthetic attraction

    I find some ladies aesthetically pleasing, a nice smile, nice eyes, wins me over every time, if they have a pleasant personality, even better, I am one that will make comment if a guy looks like he would be attractive, but I am definitely attracted to women

    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.

    Slice of Ace YouTube channel discussion

    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.

    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.
  18. 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...

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

    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.

    Possibly yum. I don't know for sure. Chocolate chip oatmeal cookies?

    Incredibly Ace Moments

    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..
