What causes someone to be asexual?

Sex is arguably the most natural thing a human does, surely for someone to experience little to no sex drive then they must have a hormone imbalance? Or a neurotransmitter imbalance or something? Or do you think some people just label themselve asexual at a young age where their too young to have experienced their sex drive and after that feel they have to carry in a live up to their label?

  • It could very well be an imbalance, but some people dont enjoy it as much, for intance a girl who has abnormal dificulty to reach climax can say she's asexual because she doesn't get the satisfaction that she desires from that

    but as you said, the role they seek to fufill that they set for themselves at young ages could also be a part in this

  • Hormone imbalance 146%. Or absence of genitals. The young ones often say that to hide the fact they j.. rk of on a regular basis.

Most Helpful Girls

  • Sometimes something traumatic can happen to make someone not want sex. For example rape. Because for some rape victims, every time they have sex it brings back those traumatic events so it’s easier for them to not have sex.

  • Genetics can have some effect as well as the personality, psychology and experiences that person has.

  • No sometimes people honestly have no interest in sex for no reason it just bores them

    • But there has to be a reason, sex is hard wired into us, we can't just not be bothered

    • A lot of the time I think of how sex will have no benefit to me, I don't want to get pregnant, making sure it's safe sex will be irritating and what's so great about seeing the guy naked

    • You're 14, you won't have experienced a sex drive yet, and safe sex is extremely easy, just take the pill and wear a condom, easy. And it will have lots of benefits to you, you just won't realise them until you're a bit older

  • Or maybe they’re just not into sex. That’s why asexuality is its own sexuality

    • Yeah, I'm asking how someone can not be into sex

    • How can someone not be into root beer? It’s just something that some people like and some people don’t

    • I wouldn't say that comparison is at all valid as sex is essential for survival of the species and is biologically wired into us, root beer is a drink that really doesn't effect anything and unlike sex it won't have been around for milenia.

  • I would agree, some hormonal, psychological or neurological imbalance/disorder.

  • Excessive gag exposure.

  • I've heard of a girl who because like that because she was mistreated by a man she had been with.

  • Some kind of chemical or hormonal imbalance. Very likely it's decided in the womb, in the same way as any other sexual orientation.
