Asexualism - what does it manifest itself?

Asexualism is manifested by the lack of feeling of physical need to have sexual intercourse. Persons belonging to a group of asexual people need a close relationship with their partner, but their sexual desire is dormant. Asexualism is considered by many to be the fourth type of sexual orientation alongside heterosexuality, homosexuality and bisexuality.

Asexual people are distinguished by the lack of feeling of the sexual attraction to people. They do not have sexual needs and do not plan to have children in the future. It is generally accepted that this orientation is innate. These people are fully aware of this and do not take steps that could change their current state of affairs. In their opinion, lack of desire for intercourse is a natural tendency that has little to do with the disorder or pathological condition.

Asexualism - sexual drive disorders

Although asexual people do not have a sexual desire, they are able to form a stable relationship. Then the preferences will depend on the so-called romantic orientation. This term defines a romantic attraction to persons of a given gender. Several types of asexualism are commonplace:

  • Heteroromanticism - romantic attraction to the opposite sex
  • Homomantry - a romantic train for same-sex people
  • Biromanticism - a romantic train for both sexes
  • Aromanticism - lack of any, also romantic, attraction to other people.

The most common symptoms of asexualism of a person are

  • No sex train
  • No interest in sex
  • No desire
  • Lack of willingness to show tenderness or nudity

Asexualism - causes

The point of recognition for the diagnosis of asexuality is the early recognition of lack of interest and desire for the other person. Suspicion of asexualism occurs only when the person has no sexual needs in the relationship and this behaviour has been going on for a long time or ever. Asexualism is therefore not a temporary aversion or unwillingness to get closer to one's partner. Asexualism is also not impotent, it does not have to be connected to emotional coolness, because asexuals are able to create successful relationships with people of both sexes.

The specific cause of asexualism has not been diagnosed. It's certainly not the kind of disorder that can be treated. It is also not an impotence that was formed as a result of traumatic experiences. It is a genetically determined condition that occurs naturally. Therefore, sexuality is not celibacy, sexual abstinence or sexual aversion.
