It's nice to finally see some of these ridiculous myths debunked. Thank you for the time and effort you put into this; I think it's a really valuable thread to have here

Aw, thank you.

Yeah, I felt the same as well! Knew I had to make it. (Though I'm almost 100% sure the one myth that started the thread...Didn't make it on here. About squirting. D'oh. Oh well, I'll make an edit later.)

You should write one of these threads in the "Teen Sexuality" forum if you know a lot about it. I don't know much about different types of sexuality and the small amount of writing on wiki isn't much help, so I can only tell people I'm bi yet I know because of you there's a different way to put that. I know how I feel but saying I'm "bi and I prefer guys" doesn't really explain it much

Is saying I'm "bi but I prefer guys" really enough to describe it? The romantic orientation thing just sounds funny to me (just looked it up) I think it's homosexual and biromantic but this just doesn't sound right...

I'm glad this post got stickied, and also that I contributed XD it's really good

Well instead of biromantic, maybe demiromantic from what you've told me- you're more interested on relationships based on personality, no?

Yeah, I keep trying to explain my sexuality, but it never sounds quite right. Some people just decide to not label it and not worry, and I might just drop the labels entirely.

But you're right, that'd be a good idea. (and I know a pretty fair amount about LGBT terminology falling under both the gay and trans bit. I also have quite a few friends who are.) I'll see what I can do.

Personality is a big part of it because obviously I need to be more careful with who I go for, but good looks with great personality is definitely a bonus

I told my friend earlier that I fancy him because once again he made the mistake of asking me which guy I would go with and questioned me when I once again said "I don't want to disturb anyone" and luckily he didn't mind it, no one did, they all just laughed he is what I would call HOT with a great personality... and sadly with a girlfriend, who I also luckily get along with

I get confused because I can't imagine myself being in a proper sexual relationship with anyone. I want to be with someone but not for sex as in a way that disgusts me, I'm not a big fan of physical contact... maybe that's just because I haven't had much interaction with anyone, I think I would be fine with a guy around my age but I always feel awkward when being tapped on the shoulder by teachers or touched by other people in any way. I told someone earlier "I do feel attraction to girls but a lot less" as there is one girl I feel something towards as well but less extremely I'm also trying to see signs of things too, because I can't tell the difference between just being friendly or being like... that... because my friend grabbed my cheek yesterday saying "I've always wanted to do that" and sadly I think I got the wrong impression but I hope I didn't... :p I asked him to do it again today, atleast on my end I got something "good" out of it :$ The awkward situation of being asked if it turned me on and me just smiling and looking away. I've been showing signs of how I feel in this way for quite a long time now and a lot of people in college have just come to expect it

I should drop the labels, it does sound like a good idea, but in some situations wouldn't it just make things more awkward?

You might be grey-asexual. Like, you're sexual, but you don't feel like you feel arousal the same way 'sexuals' do.

I'm demisexual and demiromantic sorta XD It's complicated, but I can kind of relate.

Yeah, I think in some cases it would be awkward, but I think you could just explain yourself the best you could, or say "I don't fall into a category entirely" etc.

Haha, yeah. Demisexual is considered grey-asexual.

Haha.. "gay grey-A" just sounds funny but I just came out AGAIN to my parents (this time in a happy mood which I guess shows I mean it). I just had to, especially after the discussions of the past 2 days in college, and I feel much much much better because of it. Still got to think about the asexuality thing though...

XD Yeah.

Awesome! That's great though.

XD Yeah, I felt weird with the whole 'asexual' bit myself. I was like "...But I'm not asexual!" But the more I thought about it, I realized that I didn't experience sexual attraction the way most people did, so I'm happy with the grey-a part now.

Great job with this thread.
Actually learned the truth about a few myths that in the past I had believed, thanks!

What's a beautiful person with some hideous dreams?
