I can't speak to the experience of a gay male (perhaps someone else could better), but it seems observationally true based on those that I've known.
A friend of mine told me that was the case with him as well. I know that as a gay female, that was true of me. I was completely normal, then finally came out of the closet and wore more guy-ish clothes, no makeup...all of that. Rainbow bracelet to go with. The whole deal.

When I actually became really comfortable with it, I realized that I don't have to do that anymore. It was kind of like my way of making it okay to me. Like telling people, "I'm obviously gay. I'm SO happy and sure of myself and not afraid to be out at all..." when in all honesty, I was terrified.

I'm a little surprised we have 3 asexuals among us. That's a pretty rare thing, asexuality. Tbh I'm a little envious, to have no sexuality actually sounds pretty appealing for some reason. But I guess it would be difficult to be in a relationship with an asexual person.

Yeah man, being asexual would be absolutely terrible. Not because I can't imagine life without sex, but because it would be pretty much impossible to have a normal relationship with anyone. Unless of course you find another asexual person that you love.

But then still you miss the stuff sex does for a relationship. It does bind.
I wonder if a relationship between two asexual persons (if any, hard to find I guess) would work as good as a relationship between two sexual persons.

I do by the way have the impression that some youngsters (say up to about 16 years ) could have been the ones voting for 'a seksual'. Some kids aren't interested in any of that until they've really hit puberty.

I think it could definetely work. I've seen a lot of non sexual friendships seem stronger than marriages. Then again, I don't have very much relationship experience so I don't know.

And yeah, that might be it also.

Yeah, but in that case it's mainly a friendship, not so much an actual relationship.

Perfect example of an asexual relationship, the bond between a brother and sister. There is love there, stronger than most, with no sexual expectations. An asexual marriage, would essentially be the same exact thing.

Of course an asexual couple would have to have a romantic attraction to each other, honestly, why else form a bond with another if you were asexual? Does not quite make sense otherwise.

I'm an only child (I actually had an older sister but she only grew to be a month before she died ) and I can't imagine what it's like to have a sister. I just can't imagine not thinking she's looking good when she's looking good.

But then I should add, when I look at my mother when she was 20, I can tell that she's a beautiful girl, but I'm in no way sexually attracted to her. Strange how these things work...

I always thought you types were rare. Seems there's plenty of 'em.
