Can I be asexual if I have a kink or fetish?

Kinks and fetishes can be difficult to navigate because they can exist on the blurry boundary between sexual and non-sexual activity. At the end of the day it's up to each individual to decide how much they relate to the asexuality community and whether they belong there.
