“I recently discovered my asexuality, like in the last six months, and it explained a lot of things in my life. I’m still exploring but generally feel very aligned with the Plain Ace spectrum. I have never felt sexual attraction but after I get close with someone I do occasionally feel sexual desire, not very often but when it happens it’s like for a few days and then poof gone don’t want to have sex at all don’t even touch me if you’re aroused. So I’m okay when I’m feeling this desire but as soon as I orgasm it’s over and then I’m bored, it’s more like a biological need. I feel so detached from it all mentally and if they ask later when I’m not feeling that desire and I comply for their sake or whatever I start to resent the other person and feel used. Does anyone else experience that?”
