Flowchart lols

One of the most commonly asked qustions newbies to AVEN ask is, 'am I asexual??' And list all the things that they're unsure about.

I thought I could help these people out.

Flow chart

I think that sums it up.

Hi Emma
Though this is a very interestin flow-chart Emma, I do not really see how it works, as the only one that really decides in the end matter is whether you pick yes or no for "Do you have sexual attraction?", so I was just wonderin what the purpose in the rest of the parts are, as it only seems to depend on the last thing :) hope your good

Re: Hi Emma
Tis the point m'dear - everyone seems to worry about the other things, but it's the only thing that matters about labelling yourself as ase. It's like having a big flow chart about being gay, all the yes/no answers for 'do you act camp' or whatever - it doesn't matter, it's down whether you are attracted to the same sex or not. For some reason, people seem to think that the other things mean something if you're ase, more than if you're gay/whatever (esp on the 'do you have/enjoy sex' which annoys me). A little emphasis on the attraction thing is good! :D

Hmmm I don't agree
Tis flow chart is TOO restrictive and is concerned with defining people in a way which could mean people who do actually define as Asexual are told they are not.

Re: Hmmm I don't agree
Really? In what way?

The majority of the flowchart is meant to make a point - your answers are irrelevent apart from the final box.

Asexuality as an orientation is based upon a lack of sexual attraction... that is what asexuality is defined as on AVEN and wikipedia and so forth.

I don't think that's completely correct.
For example, I'm female and want to be in a relationship with a guy, I do have a sex drive (but it's close to nothing), I do masturbate (but only once in a blue moon), I'm not religious nor do I want to be without gender, I do have fantasies, but I'm 40 and a virgin so I don't know if I'd enjoy sex.

I know that would only care to make love and have sex with the guy on top because I'm a HUGE romantic and affectionate; however, talking about sex with a straight guy turns me off inevitably because sooner or later a he's going to bring up other positions that totally turn me off! I can also live without sex (as you can see) and believe that there's more to a relationship and life than that.

What do you think?
