Recommended Posts

Even as people gain more awareness of LGBTQ+ identities, asexuality remains poorly understood by many. Until recently, lots of people assumed that everyone was sexually attracted to someone or another. But in fact, some people don't experience sexual attraction. Here's what you should understand about being asexual, or "ace" for short.

I found it really off putting that they define demisexuality, and grey sexuality, but, completely ignored asexuality. Using only the idea of the spectrum including everything as the definition. The article kind of erases the asexual asexual experience.

"Demisexuals still experience sexual attraction but in a way that centers emotions rather than lust," explains sex and relationship therapist Cyndi Darnell.

 

Oooh, do not like. Nope nope nope. Sexual attraction doesn't necessarily centre on lust for sexual people, either. That definition of demisexuality sounds pretentious. Can I fire Cyndi Darnell? 😂
