The Asexuality Handbook

Welcome! This site's aim is to provide easy access to information and advice about asexuality that is understandable, deep, and well referenced.

Asexuality is a sexual orientation where a person doesn't experience sexual attraction towards anyone. It's similar to how a heterosexual person does not experience sexual attraction to their own gender, but applied to everyone. Asexuality is also an umbrella term for people that fall between asexuality and other orientations.

For introductory overviews of asexuality please see What is asexuality? and The a-spectra. There is also an extensive FAQ which has entries for everyone – asexual, non-asexual, those questioning, or anyone in-between.

A full listing of resources is available below.
