Hey there! Asexuality is defined as not feeling sexual attraction, but it is also a spectrum. There are Demisexuals who feel sexual attraction only after having a connection to that person, Gray Asexuals feel sexual attraction rarely or at a low intensity. Asexuals might ‘sleep with’ someone else for their own or their partner’s fullfillment, even though they aren’t attracted to people that way. Some Asexuals fall under “sex-repulsed”, where the thought of any sexual things makes them sick. To sum it up, Asexuals are part of a spectrum of sexual attraction intensity. They don’t feel sexual attraction, unless they fall under one of the various identities mentioned above. I hope this didn’t turn out too confusing!
