    We don't forget about the asexual organization like as the Catholic Church or the Jedi Order . Moreover it may be a choice of a human or a situation of life (f.e. sailors, solders) when people cannot have own original sexual behavior.

    "Remember that, even when those who move you be kings or men of power, your soul is in your keeping alone. When you stand before God, you cannot say, "But I was told by others to do thus,"or that virtue "was not convenient at the time." This will not suffice."

    Asexuality as a personal disinterest in sex is a symptom of depression. Promoted as celibacy it is dysgenic.

    An old Nazi poster remarked that for Germany the slut is lost to Satan and the chaste girl lost to Christ.

    Dating can be tricky, but even trickier when you know that at some point you’ll have to reveal to someone that you will never have sex with them. This film tracks four asexuals as they work their way through the dating game to find a partner.

    Some 18% of respondents under the age of 30 have had sex fewer than 10 times in the past year, a survey of 2,000 people on websites Mumsnet and Gransnet has found. Among all ages, the figure was 29%.

    BBC's Victoria Derbyshire's reporter Claire Williams has been to meet three couples who, while madly in love, fall into this category.

    Is Asexuality a Sexual Orientation?



    In a forthcoming issue of the Archives of Sexual Behavior, a special section will be devoted to articles that address “the puzzle of sexual orientation.” I’ve been able to read a few of the articles so far, and it’s shaping up to be nothing short of fascinating! As such, I plan to cover at least a few of the articles here on Sex & Psychology. In fact, I’ve already covered one of them, which focused on the link between men’s height and their sexual orientation (read it here).

    Today, I’m covering an article that addresses asexuality. This paper, co-authored by Drs. Lori Brotto and Morag Yule, was designed to explore the controversy over the nature of asexuality. This is something people have been debating for years. Some have argued that it’s a mental disorder, others have called it a sexual dysfunction, some think of it as a paraphilia (i.e., an unusual sexual interest), and yet others consider it a sexual orientation. So what does the research say? Let’s take a look.

    Is it a mental disorder? According to the accumulated evidence, no. It is neither a disorder, nor is it a symptom of another disorder. That said, research has found a link between asexuality and reporting more psychiatric symptoms; however, it is thought that this linkage can be attributed to the fact that asexuality is a stigmatized social status. In other words, to the extent that asexual persons have higher rates of psychological distress, it’s probably because they lack social acceptance and support—not because they are mentally ill.

    Is it a sexual dysfunction? Again, according to the accumulated evidence, no. Research has found that sexual arousal is not impaired in asexual persons (at least this is true for asexual women—no studies looking at arousal among asexual men have been published yet). In addition, research finds that asexuals don’t feel distressed about their lack of sexual desire, which makes them quite distinct from people who have sexual desire disorders.

    Is it a paraphilia? The evidence here is a little more mixed and suggests that, for at least some people who identify as asexual, they might be best categorized as having a paraphilia (i.e., an unusual sexual interest). Research has found that many self-identified asexuals masturbate and, further, that many of them have sexual fantasies, too. However, the content of asexuals’ fantasies are different from those of sexual persons in some ways. For instance, asexuals are less likely to include themselves in their fantasies, they are more likely to fantasize about fictional characters, and they are more likely to feel disconnected from what is taking place in their fantasies. In short, it doesn’t make sense to say that asexuality as a whole is a paraphilia—however, for a small subset of self-identified asexuals, it seems possible that they might simply have some unusual or uncommon sexual interests.

    Is it a sexual orientation? The answer to this question depends, in part, upon whose definition of “sexual orientation” you use—but, yes, there is a fair amount of support for the idea that asexuality is a unique sexual orientation. For instance, research has found that many of the same biological characteristics linked to homosexuality are also linked to asexuality, such as handedness and birth order (learn more about this research here), suggesting that asexuality may be an innate characteristic.

    Other research has found that asexuality meets certain criteria that have been described for what constitutes a sexual orientation, such as an early age of onset. It doesn’t meet all of the proposed criteria, though. For instance, some have argued that sexual orientations typically involve some degree of stability in sexual attraction patterns over time, but the (very limited) longitudinal research available on asexuality hasn’t necessarily supported this. In one study that featured a small sample of asexuals, most people who reported a lack sexual attraction eventually went on to say that they experienced sexual attraction.

    However, perhaps this is evidence that asexuals have some degree of sexual fluidity, just like people of other sexualities. This lack of stability might also just be a reflection of the fact that the asexuality umbrella includes gray-sexuals, or persons who are somewhere in between those who are completely asexual and those who are sexual (case in point: demisexuals, or people who are asexual but can develop sexual attractions to persons with whom they have a very strong emotional bond).

    The bottom line: Asexuality is neither a mental disorder nor a sexual dysfunction. Instead, the research we have to date suggests that it’s most likely a unique sexual orientation, but that a small subgroup of self-identified asexuals might be appropriately categorized as having a paraphilia.

    Rubbish! They obviously have some kind of arrangement that suits both parties but they're not 'madly in love'.

    There's a fair amount of evidence (namely, reports from otherwise physically healthy steroid users who quit using those substances) showing that asexuality is a sign of imbalanced hormones. Men & women require adequate levels of sex hormones to be interested in sex.

    So my advice for anyone who is 'asexual' is that they should have their hormone levels tested and, if you're a man who doesn't want to take testosterone replacement therapy due to potential side effects, take tamoxifen (an estrogen blocker) and see if that helps.

    Falling testosterone levels are a HUGE issue that goes largely unreported.

    A lot of today's strange behaviour by western males can be attributed to this.

    I don't know so much about female hormonal imbalances but there's clearly something going on!

    All the praising of intense platonic friendship between single men and women being so desirable to developing a meaningful relationship that includes that oh so terrible word, "sex", is ridiculous.
    Not all in life is at it appears to be.
