There Is No Interest In Sex Or The Opposite Sex?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your feelings. By definition, asexual is a condition when a person cannot experience a sexual attraction towards someone, whoever that is, regardless of same-sex or other types, young or old. Sexual attraction itself is that which is related to, or can end in, sexual relations. While demisexual itself is when someone finds it very difficult to be sexually attracted to others, unless already formed a close and strong emotional relationship before. So it can, but it is very difficult.
So if by definition, the point is if you have experienced sexual attraction, even though to build it is difficult, if you have to choose between the two terms, then you are demisexual. But if never, then you are said to be asexual.
But to know exactly, it's not that simple. Because even in his scholarship there is still much debate about whether asexual and demisexual is a disease, or just a variation of one's sexual orientation. In addition we also do not know any information about you such as your gender and age. The link is easy if you are 30-40 years old, you may indeed experience one of the two conditions, but if you are still in your early 20s, it is not impossible that you have not yet found the right person.
Furthermore, the terms asexual and demisexual are made in western culture, where sexual relations are carried out freely. We live in eastern culture, where even discussing something that smells of sex can be a taboo for certain circles and families. So it is the perception built by your family and environment that has caused you to appear as asexual or demisexual when in fact it is not. You also need to look at your background, whether you are never interested at all or have ever been interested and hurt or disappointed at that time. If there are feelings of disappointment or unpleasant feelings, it could be those feelings that prevent you from being easily attracted to other people, but not to the point of demisexual, and various other possibilities. Apart from all that, there are also physical conditions that make a person feel decreased sexual arousal, such as Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (HSDD) due to various things, such as hormonal imbalance, genetic or hereditary effects, side effects of drugs, stress and so forth.
So that the conditions that you experience, if explored by further examination can have a very broad range of understanding, ranging from normal conditions, various kinds of mental disorders, to various kinds of physical disorders, which to be able to confirm it our advice you should consult a psychiatrist first. Your psychiatrist will try to dig deeper into your condition to understand who you really are and what shapes you. You will later go through interviews and maybe a number of written tests before your psychiatrist finally determines the diagnosis, and treatment if necessary.
As for the nausea that arises when watching porn, instead of sexual desire that arises, this will come back again from the importance of knowing information about you, especially age. For example, children and perhaps early adolescents naturally see nausea, feel disgusted or do not understand why kissing can appeal to adults. Likewise for such ages, they do not understand why adults like certain parts of the opposite sex. But if for adults, this condition is not natural. So once again, it is very important for you to consult yourself, so that there is a clearer picture of your condition. So, hopefully answering your question.
