    • A. 

      Sounds like the one...

    The sexual attraction is experienced a little differently for everyone. For those of you who do experience sexual attraction, what is a sexual attraction to you? (Despite the official definition of sexual attraction) NOTE: If you do not experience sexual attraction, answer accordingly.
    • A. 

      "Seeing someone and not only finding them attractive but thinking you'd like to have sex with them." - AVEN User, 'That One'

    • B. 

      It's when I have that warm feeling you get when you see someone charming/handsome.

    • C. 

      When I see someone, and I'm like "GET IN ME!" ;P

      This strange feeling that other people keep telling me about, but I'm not sure what it is or if I've ever experienced it.

      This warm/intense feeling I get for someone after I've become very close to them, and I want to take the relationship further.

      Maybe I would have missed out on something. But if my life was fulfilling in other ways, then that would make up for it!

      It would only be sad if there was a specific someone I was attached to whom I liked.

      As long as I got to masturbate.

      What of it? :)

  • 5. 
    You have a group of friends, and they are enthusiastically talking about sexual activities or gossip. (They are not talking about it in a joking manner, instead, they are discussing attractive people, and what they would like to do with them in bed.)
    • A. 

      Despite whether or not the subject interests me, I often feel alienated because I can’t relate to their thoughts and feelings.

    • B. 

      I'll laugh and join in sometimes, but I'll mostly listen. My friends are more into it than I am.

    • C. 

      I relate more when they talk about people they've had a close relationship with - not strangers or acquaintances they think are attractive.

    • D. 

      I get the feeling, but I'm not as enthusiastic about the activities, because I don't enjoy the idea of them being reciprocated.

    • E. 

      AY YO, CAN I JOIN IN? Where my seat at??

      I might have past experiences to share and things to talk about. But I don't feel enthusiastic about it.

      N/A or Not sure.

  • 8. 
    Random scenario! Say the Trevor Project (an organization focused on suicide prevention efforts, LGBT) has visited your school or community to give a presentation; the presenter starts a list of ways for people to help themselves with depression. Near the end of the record, the presenter mentions SEX as an example! (After all, sex does raise endorphins.) Most of the room starts talking and laughing in agreement. How do you react?
    • A. 

      I'm talking and agreeing with everyone else / I'm probably the one who suggested SEX

    • B. 

      I am surprised at the number of people who agree / I feel like the odd ball out.

    • C. 

      I understand, but I'm not sure if I quite agree with everyone else. I just shrug it off.

    • D. 

      I think just staring at my posters of attractive celebrities would do a better job than actual sex.

    • E. 

      Well, I would probably wonder if all of these people would have casual sex to relieve depression. Would that work?

    • F. 

      N/A or Not sure.

  • 9. 
    Think about the first time you learned about "asexuality" (maybe it was even during this quiz?) What were your first thoughts, or knee-jerk reactions?
    • A. 

      Someone who doesn't experience sexual attraction at all? Ever? Like Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory? I didn't think that could exist.

    • B. 

      I can relate to the "not desiring sex" part. But I do feel sexually attracted to people.

    • C. 

      I feel asexual most of the time! The only exceptions are when I've already become close to someone.

    • D. 

      I can pretty much relate to it! Maybe I'm like 70%-90% asexual.

    • E. 

      This is me. Everything about this word is me. I can relate so much!

    • F. 

      Interesting! You learn something new every day.

    • G. 

      Sounds like a disorder.

    • A. 

      I don't relate to this very much. I experience sexual attraction regularly enough and desire sexual reciprocation from at least one gender.

    • B. 

      I relate to this most of the time, but there have been a few exceptions.

    • C. 

      I relate to this until I'm with someone I've grown attached to, romantically or otherwise.

    • D. 

      I feel sexually attracted to people. I don't desire reciprocation of said sexual attraction.

    • E. 

      I relate to this 90% - 100%!

    • F. 

      I relate to it. I think I do experience sexual attraction, but it's usually / always very mild.
