Asexuality is not fake.

Asexuals are oppressed. 

Asexuality is real.

How can you say that sex can exist without love and not that love can exist without sex? 

Asexuality is as real and as repressed as all the other member of the LGBT community. “How can you be repressed for not liking sex?” Oh well maybe we’re only 1% of the population and maybe most people refuse to believe that they exist and maybe people who are asexual are at higher risk of being raped because stupid jerks thing that we “need to be fixed.” 

SHUT UP! We need awareness just as much as gay, bi, lesbian, pan, demi, aro, trans, queer, and everyone else who is denied their right to exist. 

We are not celibate. This is not a choice. We do not want sex. Some (not all) may even prefer death over sex! “Oh, well how do you know you don’t like it if you’ve never tried?” HAVE YOU EVER STUCK YOUR HAND IN BOILING WATER? NO? THEN HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU DON’T LIKE IT? 

And relationships involving one or more asexual person can be successful! The asexual person can let themselves have sex to please their partner, or (for some reason people tend to ignore this option!) the sexual person can choose to give up sex because they are so romantically in love with their partner. 

Asexuals need to be recognized or else we’re just gonna feel broken and we shouldn’t have to because

we

are 

not!

I have a little problem…

So as some of my followers may remember, I’ve been in a relationship with another asexual for a while (it’s been a little over a year now). While we have been happily living together in his hometown, things have been a little rocky for a few weeks. Finally, last night he decided to tell me what was going on.

Apparently, my boyfriend has started experiencing sexual fantasies and urges recently :[ We’re a bit worried what it might mean for our future, since I am definitely still asexual, and his desires have been for men, not women… We discussed the possibility of having to involve someone else in our relationship, but that’s territory I didn’t even think we’d have to consider. We both definitely do not want to break up, but he doesn’t exactly want an “open” relationship. He says if it comes down to it, he wants to find a single person he can trust for a sexual partner. While that’s all fine and good, I guess I can’t say I don’t feel a tad bit nervous about having someone else be so close to him. I trust him now, but when sex does become a bigger deal for him I worry it may cause tension for us. 

So I guess I’m just looking for some advice on what I should do, how I should try to handle or view this situation… He says he won’t do anything about it until we get our own place, but that may not be too far off. I want to be mentally and emotionally prepared for what may eventually be the future of my relationship with him. Some asks or comments on this would be really appreciated. Thanks for reading.

For Asexuals looking for a good, durable, ace ring that is rather attractive here is one you will love. I have one and it has lasted me for years with next to no wear or tear. The only downside is it does happen to be a little heavy but if you don’t mind that it is a perfect ring for you.

Enjoy and I hope this helps other aces out there when they go looking for a ring.

These kinds of rings are perfect! You will never have to worry about replacing one as long as you don’t lose it. I have one myself because I was working in a sign-making shop when I bought it, and was constantly working with my hands every day. Tungsten Carbide rings are so durable, you could hit them repeatedly with a hammer and they would not dent, bend or break. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a good Ace ring. I got mine from a shop on Etsy where you can get yours custom engraved. Mine says “Ace Pride” on the inside of the band :)
