What has the journey of embracing asexuality looked like for you?
These past couple years, I came across a definition of asexuality that was broader than being sex-repulsed. Until then, it felt like I was failing myself and my partners.
In reality, sex just wasn't as high on my list of priorities as other things. It felt like a potential fun thing to do… but not as fun in the moment as most other options.
(Fun fact: Apparently, lots of people with ADHD feel this way. Learning this blew my mind!)
I used to feel guilty whenever I masturbated. It felt like I was somehow draining a limited resource. But once I figured out my grey-asexual identity, I was able to start to let that go.
I've since been left with a replaced sense of freedom and have accessed a newfound joy in the times when I do decide to engage with sexy stuff!
