Chatter post

For all your discussion needs.

Ground rules:
- Try to keep it loosely trash party related, or at least Cap fandom related.
- Disagreement is fine, nastiness is not.
- Being offended is not carte blanche for nastiness.
- Trashmeme ground rules apply. Read at your own risk, no romanticizing your noncon garbage, no wank about the moral acceptability of noncon kink.
- Body shots, sniper shots, and tetanus shots are all available at the open bar. Party like it's 2014, kids.

I'm asexual, and all the kinky fun of power dynamics lives in my head; I have no desire to act it out on anybody in any fashion - it doesn't appeal at all. I just want to read about it happening to other (fictional) people!

Everyone else's answer seems to be along the lines of "Yes" or "I'd like to", so I figured I'd offer up an alternative perspective.

This. ^^^

I'm asexual too, and this is exactly where I'm at with kink. Fiction is my scene 'cause it allows me to explore kink/fetish as integrated or abstract concepts without being an active physical participant.

I'm also aromantic, so fiction provides an outlet for that as well. The experience, for me, is a bit like being a strict vegetarian who's happy to serve steak and bacon to their omnivorous friends.

I'm not remotely asexual (my libido can get pretty extreme actually) but I also have no desire to participate in BDSM-type sex irl.

Fantasizing about fictional characters doing it? Absolutely, love it to bits, have gotten off over it more times than I would ever want to count. But I can't even *fantasize* about doing it myself. It's not even that it squicks me - it's like my mind hits a brick wall of utter disinterest. No matter what imaginary scenario I try to put myself into, no matter what role I try out in my head, I feel absolutely nothing.

(Aaaaaand now I'm going to spend the next month trying to figure out *why* that is.)

(Same anon: where by "libido" I mean "desire to fuck other people". I do recognize that asexual people can experience arousal!)
