Asexual is a terminology based on the hypothetical lack of sexual impulse (Also known as libido) or a lack of a sexual orientation toward any specific gender, taken up by a large number of human beings. Asexuality is volcel as the person identifying as asexual generally does not wanna be in a relationship with someone else.
Usually it simply refers to a person having a negligible / unobserved quantity of sexuality, perhaps due to having below-average sexual impulses.
It's most likely just a different term for being hyposexual, except for some reason that terminology is offensive toward them.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
While it is possible for some things to be truly asexual (ie a pebble is asexual) the possibility in humans is unproven.
