    A question on Aegosexuality

    The words themselves define the situation. Anegosexual ( from Latin) : no ego or 'I' . Autochorissexual ( from Greek) : self (auto) apart (chori) So I would think that if a person participates in the fantasy, they are not anegosexual or autochorissexual. It's not about whether or not they would act the fantasy out. It's about their role ( or rather their lack of role) in the fantasy. Thank you for posting the extract @Laurann

    What do you think about coming out?

    I want people to know that I don't have sex because I would be uncomfortable with an assumption that I possibly do. Of course, everyone may have their opinion. Just don't treat people who consider being out something important to be less mature or anything (or the other way around). Different people may have different reasons for being out or not and all should be respected.

    Asexuality on God is Grey

    I actually haven't watched this video specifically, however, I would like to praise God is Grey in general. She is the perfect example (in my personal opinion) of what a good Christian should be. She's caring, warm, loving of everyone, and even YouTube's dear Mr. Atheist can't say a mean thing about her. Go check her out if that sort of thing interests you.

    It's official, my parents have a realty addiction.

  10. Sexuality was something that never bothered me and I've never questioned seriously until last year. I began thinking whether I was bisexual and asexual and turns out that yes, I am bi and ace. But I have no intention in coming out to absolutely anyone, not to my family or my friends. I only ''came out'' to one of my friends, who admitted to being bi without missing a beat. But it was so casual and comfortable that I wouldn't consider it ''coming out'', because we're very close, we trust each other and we're both close to lgbt community. I've always had mixed feelings when it comes to coming out, especially to friends, but I am sure that it all depends on the person and the environment they live in. I know that coming out means a lot to many, even if it's scary, downright terrifying, able to end up in being unaccepted, disowned by family and left by friends. People, I assume, want to come out to be truly comfortable with who they are without having to adjust and act a certain way. When it comes to me, I don't plan on coming out to anyone simply because I think my sexuality is none of their business. It's only my business. I'm the only one who needs to know who I am in terms of my sexuality. No one else needs to know that I am attracted to both men and women, no one else needs to know I don't want sex. Perhaps it's also because I treat people the same way - I don't need to know your sexuality or if you have sex or not. All I care is that you're a good human being who is happy with your life and you treat others well. What are your thoughts on coming out? Have you come out and can you tell me why you did that and why it was important to you? I'd love to know all kinds of opinions, because I don't think my opinion is the right one, perhaps I am missing something crucial. So I'd love to know what you think about it.

    Homoromantic / Asexy lesbian time!

    Hello there. Same as borderprincess, I'm new to this thread too. I've been fairly sure of my asexuality for a number of years, but realising that I'm also into girls is a little harder to accept (due to my rather conservative family, I'm afraid). It's hard to put into words how grateful I am that a space like this exists on AVEN. And I'm really looking forward to reading through this thread and gaining insight from all you wonderful people.
  12. The situation was made worse because he said he was asexual before I even knew the word. He had been my best friend since our early teens and it really messed me up a lot. BUT the messages I have had here so far have been so wonderful that I know for sure that I have found a place where I can be myself and finally feel safe. THANK YOU 🍰🍰🍰🍰🍰🍰🍰
  13. They're lovely @NimaToad and I agree about that sky in the third one. I took a sky pic the other day. I'll try to put it up.
  14. I will say this for me has been the biggest area of compromise for me. Even though I’m in a relationship, I am out, and openly asexual, I’m also someone with some level of visibility, at least locally. I do wish I could be more honest and vocal about issues facing aces, and my thoughts and feeling on the more “delicate” subjects, but of course there comes a point where it would be unfair on my partner, and so I’m not able to do as much as I would like. I do very much hate having to still maintain some level of “sexual passing”, but it’s not worth throwing everything away for.
  15. Thank you so much. Your kind words and the welcome are very much appreciated. And that cake is amazing 😁

    Asexuality on God is Grey

    I only listened to half of it because she didn't get to the core of the subject and failed to hook me in order to watch the rest of the video. Afterall, it's an ad for a podcast of sort. Having said that, it's great that asexulity is spoken of and it's portrayed with its difficulties.

    A question on Aegosexuality

    Hm, yeah that's not what the label describes. I'm not sure if there is a label that describes not wanting to act on fantasies, but I think it's a fairly common thing among sexual people. Though I'd need confirmation on that, don't take my word on it. Having sexual fantasies that involve yourself is less common among aces, but that doesn't mean aces who have those can't exist.

    A question on Aegosexuality

    Yes, that's the research I was referencing. So based on this I got that Anego/autochris (I assume these are the same thing) is where a person is fantasizing in third person. My case just seems vastly different than many asexual's. Someone told me to look into the label because I have no desire to act on my long-term fantasies.

    Questioning my gender

    Nice! I like the reference to singularities... But then, if I tried to apply that to me... I guess I'd be... a planet 😁 (or just an asteroid, that works too.)

    Can you enjoy romantic stories?

    I suppose I do enjoy romance to a certain extent. I enjoy reading a Bronte novel for instance, though, I would argue that there's something more going on in Jane Eyre or Wuthering Heights than straight-forward romantic tension. I don't enjoy reading modern romance books. While I have tried modern romantic fiction before, I find it's not my cup of tea at all. As to watching a romantic film or tv show.... again, not my cup of tea. Unless it features the desolate landscape of the moors alongside the romance, I'm not bothered.

    I want to cheat on my husband

    Yes that is very true that you cant validate everyone simultaneously. It's fine, just an observation I've made, and I think as far as outside AVEN goes, most people would side with the sexual as it is the "normal" thing to be. This probably would be a good one for the friends and allies subforum though.

    2020 U.S. Presidential Race

    I have not watched a single one. Waste of time. I could care less what they say they will or won't do. Very little ever comes of it. There is one focus and one focus ONLY...getting rid of Trump.

    Feedback for Staff Elections/Volunteering

    A PM can contain relevant bio/introduction and Admods can have their pressing questions if any, more relevant questions privately. Yeah this can be a step after a candidate has passed the stage the Admod team has discussed eligibility, though instead of a vote of confidence, it be an Announcement for objections. This allows Admods to look again at what if anything has been missed about a candidate, this could be the same timeframe at 1 week, no voting necessary. I think even voting is on the down lately as well.
