Ok I'm not sure what it is if it's borderm habit or what idk but I'm asexual & still masturbate.  Is that actually a thing? I never think sexual thing's when I do it I just like the feeling of it. I've heard loads of people say asexual people don't masturbate is this true ? Or is it actually a thing that some ace people still do it ?

That's quite common. Many asexual people do it. Many asexual people don't.

 

Many asexual people have sex, too. Asexuality is about a lack of sexual attraction, not what you're doing with your nether regions!

Some do some don't!  There are still lots of aces who have a libido, they just don't want a partner and prefer to take matters into their own hands.

Personally, I used to masturbate a pretty significant amount (for an asexual, at least). I also used to have sex. Don't do as much masturbation, but I still do sometimes. Haven't had sex since last year, and I'm not really looking to. Many people are asexual and still have a libido and experience physical arousal. Many still masturbate but don't have those.

Masturbation is totally normal, even for asexuals. Our bodies still function properly and can get aroused. Our minds still fantasize, although the types of fantasies are often different than what I understand is normal for allosexuals. And some aces, like myself, have a pretty kickin' libido. We aren't sexually attracted to anyone and/or have zero desire for partnered sex, so who else is gonna take care of those needs? We are, ourselves!

 

There are a plethora of threads on AVEN about masturbation, particularly in The Sex Talk, where some people really get into the nitty-gritty. For more generalized discussion, there are also some threads in Questions about Asexuality, and you can compare what you've been doing to some of the others' responses, although I think the threads get moved to The Sex Talk area once a mod sees them.

I have not told anyone about being asexual except a counselor that I talk to sometimes, she does not think that Iam because I masturbate and that I was married, but the thing is I never had luck with relationships, I stopped dating for 16 years because I thought it was to stressful, I think women are attractive it I don’t have a desire to have sex with anyone. I have female friends but there has never been the desire to have we. With them, I have dated several women but I always ended up alone, I figured there had to be something wrong with me, I started to read and research about sex, sexuality, masturbation, asexuality, and everything thing I read about it seemed to click, I found this site and I can relate to most everyone in some way or another. I knew what asexual was but never thought that was me because i have always been curious about sexual stuff, I have a pretty high libido and I enjoy masturbation and do it quite a bit. It I know this is what Iam and I am fine with it
