Sexuals: what do you think of when you hear the word 'sex'?

Sexuals: what do you think of when you hear the word 'sex'?  

41 members have voted

  1. 1. Per thread title, and as a kind of response to CBC's poll aimed at asexuals.

    • Yes please. Where, please? I'll boff anything willing.
      2
    • An intimate way a couple can interact and strengthen their relationship like nothing else
      22
    • A fun add-on in a relationship, but interchangeable with many other shared activities
      2
    • No view, I just want to click on something so I can see poll results.

In response to CBC's poll for asexuals.

I don’t think of any of those, to be honest. It depends on context but I’m not very imaginative.

Wouldn't it be nice to have an 'I'm not sexual' or at least an 'I'm a grey ace and have something to say here' option?

Maybe this poll is subject to the same flaws as the corresponding one for asexuals.

As I'm asexual I have enough integrity not to add my pennyworth to the actual poll!😆

You could use the fourth option and then post an opinion.

But I do actually have a view, so that option is badly worded if you want us to use it that way. I'm a grey ace so I have in fact experienced sexual attraction...

That, however would make one appear somewhat frivolous.

As you point out, it's not like these are anything more than informal interest. I really couldn't be arsed with a literature review or involving the ethics committee either, so if it doesn't meet your high standards you can always just not bother with it.

That begs the question of why bother posting it then, to what ends? Makes it sound like the respondents' answers are unimportant.

Fair enough. I thought as one of the rare people who 'gets' both viewpoints from actual experience,  my opinion might have been of interest, that's all. Have fun with your poll.

Well, what have we here. :P

 

Option two for me, unsurprisingly.

Why bother with anything?

I went in search of some nihilistic memes to post in response, but honestly there are just too many good ones to choose from.

There's just no point in nihilistic memes.

I vote these 2 threads should be placed in the 'polls'  section, or at the very least JFF! Any takers?😆

Yep, thats what a fatalist(nihilist) asexual reaction to sex is.

Why not? I'm surprised anyone expects anything beyond passing amusement for any poll on AVEN ever, tbh.

Can we put all of AVEN in JFF? :ph34r:

Ooh! Is that an anti AVEN stance then?

I don't ID as ace anymore, but somewhere between fun add on and strengthen for me. It isn't the only thing that works for me, but it is the easiest thing.

It's fine, it's in the Friends and Allies section, and explicitly directed at 'sexuals'....

Me? I think the same when I hear Battenberg cake...it takes a creaky old grandad to keep one at home...they're so old fashioned.

In the same way it takes a particular sick mind to think of it....but sexuals don't think of sex all the time so...they wouldn't look up the urban dictionary to find out would they?

Just to let others know, particularly asexuals, you don't have to click the fourth option in order to see the poll results; I was able to see them when I wasn't logged in, without having to click anything on the poll.

 

I wonder what the poll results would be if it were on a website that had mostly sexuals, like Scarleteen, as AVEN doesn't have many.

I can think of a recent post which read 'so I win and you lose' after someone gracefully extricated themselves from the mire...wonder what that peer review thought?

Oh good lord, that discussion migrated over here as well? Someone sure has a bit of a vendetta.
