I have a question for those of you who consider yourselves sexual people of any orientation [View all]

[font style="font-family:'Georgia','Baskerville Old Face','Helvetica',fantasy;" size=4 color=#008080]I am making this poll to try and resolved a debate I am having on a different site and would appreciate your help.

Would you say it is common or normal for there to be "sexual" person (of any orientation: heterosexual /homosexual /bisexual /pansexual /etc) who never find others attractive, but to have a strong desire to have sex? Strong enough that they are go out and seek casual sex with people despite not finding them attractive?

A straight male, for example, who desires to have sex with women, but doesn't find anyone of any gender attractive? Or maybe a lesbian who desires to have sex with other women but again doesn't find anyone of any gender attractive?

OR would you say this is rare? Or a maybe a type of asexuality?[/font]

To any forum hosts, in case I get an SoP alert, I am posting this here as this is an issue within the ace community and I really didn't think it belongs in the Lounge.
