Asexuality: people who do not feel sexual desire
The last decades have given visibility to forms of sexual orientation that do not have to marry heterosexuality perfectly and have allowed others that were already known, such as homosexuality, to have become more socially normalized. Anyway, some sexual options, such as pansexuality, is still quite unknown.
Asexuality, sexual non-orientation However, it often seems that this openness to different sensitivities and experiences related to sexuality remains insufficient, because the possibility that certain people do not feel sexual desires is not usually contemplated.
What happens when we talk not about different sexual orientations, but about cases in which there is no sexual orientation at all? When we refer to this we are talking about a phenomenon that has been called asexuality.
Neither ideology nor sexual orientation
An asexual person is, quite simply, a person who does not experience sexual desire or attraction and therefore does not feel moved to have sexual relations of any kind. Asexuality, in short, is the persistent lack of sexual desire that is not motivated or fueled by habits of religious or cultural roots. Celibacy moved for religious reasons, therefore, is something else.
Asexuality cannot be considered a form of sexual orientation, because it consists precisely in the absence of such a preference, but neither is it an ideology that leads to a more or less consciously repressed sexually. However, that does not mean that there are no groups of asexual people that have been associated with political purposes, as has happened with LGBT groups.
Currently it is normal for men and women who identify themselves as asexual to claim the need to build a world in which sexual desire is not something that is presupposed and in which it is not mandatory to have sex to receive social approval. To this end there are communities such as AVEN (Asexual Visibility and Education Network) that are responsible for giving voice to these people and disseminating knowledge and experiences about asexuality. AVEN, by the way, has more than ten thousand registered.
Missing data!
Although asexual people tend to want to be visible by joining forces collectively, asexuality itself is a phenomenon that is very little known. Very few investigations that address it directly or indirectly.
In fact, most studies are limited to surveys, such as the one that led to an article published in the Journal of Sex Research in which it is claimed that around 1% of Britons could be asexual. Given the lack of information, there is no well-established theory that explains the basis of asexuality, why it occurs and what kind of people are more likely to be asexual.
And also lack sensitivity
Part of the way in which this lack of information about asexuality is focused, rather than scientific, is deeply ideological. For example, it is not uncommon to talk about asexuality as if it did not exist and was a fiction fed by repressed people.
It is also frequent that it is taken as a symptom of illness, although there is no evidence to support such a point of view, and people who do not experience sexuality like the rest are stigmatized in some way (something that has also historically happened to everyone LGBT groups).
The invisible sexual orientation
Other currents of opinion tend to exaggerate the characteristics by which asexual people differ from the rest, as if it were practically a separate civilization with very concrete and stereotyped ways of living life and relating to others. Asexuals, however, tend to place emphasis not on differences but on everything that characterizes them as human. They claim themselves as people totally capable of interacting normally with everyone and having intimate, though not necessarily sexual, relationships. It is easy to imagine why they are right: in the end, believing that the simple fact of not feeling sexual desire means being socially isolated or has to be irremediably caused by a disease is a good example of why groups such as AVEN have so much work to do.
What is clear is that there is nothing wrong with the fact of not experiencing sexual desire and there is no reason to pretend to fight against asexuality as if it were a disease. In any case, it is the society as a whole who must fight to make all sensibilities fit in it.
