How do you describe asexuality to other people?
If I’m talking to someone who I suspect is allosexual I go with ‘you know that feeling when you look at someone and go they are hot id like to have sex with them? Well that literally never happens to me’
If I’m talking to someone questioning or who I think can cope with more nuance I like to use ‘the absence of sexual attraction without other sexual stimuli’ because I think that clarification of ‘sometimes you may feel sexy ways in sexy situations but that doesn’t make you less ace’ can be really helpful for sex favourable aces.
I know others also like to talk about the different types of attraction, though I tend not too unless it’s relevant to the conversation
What do you like to discuss when introducing asexuality to new people, or is this a topic you avoid?
