Anime & Manga
As I grew, that question changed into "Why won't you get married?" and my mother cried, saying that she wants to see the face of her grandchild. I've been told "You've just haven't found someone you truly love yet". Almost as if people who don't experience romantic feelings don't exist from the start.
Important things are felt, not said. Whirl:
I'll take your word for it. I don't do "Relationships". My world begins and ends with me... So why aren't you guys a couple?
I'm not all that interest[ed] in hooking up with people. I honestly find it rather pointless. Roman Torchwick:
Really?! Could've fooled me with how much enthusiasm you put into our little romp just a few minutes ago. Cinder Fall:
Well, if you're going to do something, you might as well be good at it. It just never holds my interest. It doesn't mean I'm repulsed by it. After all, it seems to be very valuable in keeping you on board
, Chapter 16 "Killer's Remorse"
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.
"You're a beautiful woman, probably." "I don't think Arthur's gay. I think he's A." Liz
: Meeting someone new, ugh. All the nodding and smiling and sibling listing. And what's the upside? It works and you have to have a bunch of sex? 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.
"I have no sexual desires."
Religion and Myth
But there are three whose hearts [Aphrodite
] cannot win over or deceive.
The first is the daughter of aegis-bearing Zeus, bright-eyed Athena,
For she takes no pleasure in the things done by golden Aphrodite.
What does please her is wars and what is done by Ares
Battles and fighting, as well as the preparation of splendid pieces of craftsmanship. [...]
The second is the renowned Artemis, she of the golden shafts
Never has she been subdued in lovemaking by Aphrodite, lover of smiles,
For she takes pleasure in the bow and arrows [...]
The third one ... is the pure maiden Hestia. [...]
She was the Lady who was wooed by Poseidon and Apollo,
But she was quite unwilling, and she firmly refused.
— Homeric Hymn #5 to Aphrodite
Ye do like t'talk, don't ye? Lust:
Mm, and most people love
to listen. Not you
, though. Jack:
So, do you
like girls? Chapel:
I don't like anybody,
"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."
"Sex is more exciting on the screen and between the pages than between the sheets." "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." 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. Don't think of asexuality as preferring cake to sex. Think of asexuality like other people eating cake in front of you NOT making you hungry. It sure looks delicious. You almost wish you were hungry, so that you could try some. But suddenly everybody's all on about "Would you like some cake?" and you're saying "No thanks, I'm not hungry". But they just keep going on and on about how great the cake is; they're all "Go on, treat yourself". And eventually you groan and try a piece, but eating the cake doesn't make you hungry for more. In fact because you're not hungry, you just don't enjoy it so much, no matter what flavour it is.
