(My friends and I are discussing sexualities and I mention that I’m asexual. One of my friends is curious and starts asking questions about what it’s like.)

Friend #1: “So, I get that you don’t like sex, but… What’s the turn-off?”

Me: “For me, it’s not really a turn-off, there just is no turn-on.”

Friend #1: “So when you see a hot guy, or a hot girl…?”

Me: “I can appreciate that they look good, but otherwise, nothing.”

Friend #1: “But what’s that like?!”

Me: “Well… You don’t like broccoli, right? So imagine someone had a plate of nice, green, perfectly cooked broccoli. You could understand that it looked nice without wanting to eat it, right?”

Friend #1: “Yeah, I guess. So sex is like broccoli to you?”

Friend #2: *who is pansexual, and just entering the room* “I missed the rest of that conversation, so I’m not sure if it’s the best time or the worst time to say that broccoli’s my favorite food. I would probably sleep with broccoli.”

Friend #1: “Definitely the best.”
