Asexual means "not having sexual interests or abilities."

In the psychology context, asexual refers to a person who lacks sexual attraction or interest in sexual activity. Asexuality is a sexual orientation that is distinct from heterosexuality, homosexuality, or bisexuality, and it is characterized by a lack of sexual desire or attraction to others.

Examples of asexual in the psychology context include:

  • A person who does not experience sexual attraction or desire towards others
  • A person who is not interested in engaging in sexual activity or forming sexual relationships
  • A person who identifies as asexual, either as part of their sexual orientation or as a personal identity

Asexuality is a relatively rare sexual orientation, and it is not well understood by many people. Some asexual individuals may experience romantic attraction towards others, but they do not experience sexual attraction. Psychologists and other mental health professionals may study asexuality in order to better understand this sexual orientation and to explore the factors that may influence it.
