    For some time i think i known it, and maybe its difficult to be sure. But i have come to realizing that i when it comes to sexuality i am A-sexual.

    I know this is very personal to admit but since i am an open person i have no problem knowledge this issue.

    And yes i do understand there might be many question to be answerd.
    I dont not come forth to gain sympathy or focus on me as a person.

    No one can help the body they were given at birth CT...sexuality is more about hormones than anything else. There are many things that govern our hormones. There is no shame in being whatever you are, if you are a decent human being, and by your posts I know you are. That makes up for any differences we have I believe.

    You don't have to answer any questions. Just be celibate if you want to. It's not like sex is a requirement.

    The novelist Kingsley Amis (father of Martin) lost his libido towards the end of his life. For which he claimed to be grateful, observing that an active sex drive was “like being chained to an idiot”.

    On the other hand, he also observed that for him, life without a woman was only half a life.

    Dear @Conscious thoughts

    Have you asked yourself what about this it is that you find difficult?
    Or perhaps you believe that it is difficult for others in your life…?

    I like "Worldly Sex", but I love "Divine Sex"

    Hence I decided to stick to the latter

    People call it A-sexual, I call it D-sexual

    I feel like that much of the time and I'm not asexual. Finding a good life partner is a fool's errand for probably most people in the West now, especially younger people.

    Divine sex can be confused with being spiritual and loving God. I don't believe loving God involves sex, not as I conceive loving God. There is a book in the Bible called the Song of Solomon, but this, in my opinion, shouldn't be taken literally. Or it is intended to be taken literally by the author, then I think he is on the wrong track.

    You also missed the quotes, so to avoid further misunderstanding I'll write it out completely

    IF "Worldly Sex" = "Worldly Love"
    THEN "Divine Sex" = "Divine Love"

    I hope this clarifies the misunderstanding

    I guessed that much, hence I explained in the above post in more detail:)

    True

    Hence when I quote words (e.g. "sex" do NOT take it literal as meaning sex). Sex stands for desires and attachment. "Worldly Sex" stands for worldly ones (any desires, attachments). To transform these lands one in Divine Bliss
