Quotes / Asexuality

"Sex is more exciting on the screen and between the pages than between the sheets."

"You're a beautiful woman, probably."
The Fourth Doctor, Doctor Who, "City of Death"

"It's like I've eaten spam a few times from a few popular brands and in a few serving suggestions, and found I'm not really keen on spam, 'cos it's salty and slimy and looks like something you might find in the alien queen's litter box. But I've found myself in a world that's completely obsessed with spam. People spend their entire lives in pursuit of spam. Every single advert on TV sells their product by placing it alongside spam. Movies have to work in at least one spam scene to reach the broadest audience. People break up and get divorced because they don't exchange enough spam. Soldiers are given time out to go have some spam. Low-risk prisoners are given spam visiting rights. People die for spam. Entire economies have been based around spam. Selling spam is the world's oldest profession. The lack of spam has been linked to mental disorders. The only thing getting teenagers through difficult puberty is the thought of one day getting to have spam of their very own. It's just tinned meat, guys."

Jack: Lemon, what do you want? Do you want to be alone for the rest of your life?
Liz: No. I just wish I could start a relationship about 12 years in, when you really don't have to try anymore and you can just sit around together and goof on tv shows, and then go to bed without anybody trying any funny business.
30 Rock, "Gavin Volure"

"I'm not gay. I mean, I don't think I am, but… I don't think I'm straight, either. I don't know what I am. I think I might be nothing."
Todd, Bojack Horseman

Butch: So, do you… like girls?
Chapel: I don't like anybody, man!

It was not that he felt any emotion akin to love for Irene Adler. All emotions, and that one particularly, were abhorrent to his cold, precise but admirably balanced mind. He was, I take it, the most perfect reasoning and observing machine that the world has seen, but as a lover he would have placed himself in a false position.
Watson about Sherlock Holmes, "A Scandal in Bohemia"

I have no sexual desires
Data, Star Trek: The Next Generation, episode "Phantasms"

Asexuality is a sexual orientation, like heterosexuality or homosexuality, etc., but instead of being sexually attracted to men or women, asexual people are sexually attracted to no one. This does not mean we all hate sex or avoid it, it just means we don't find people sexually attractive.
