Being asexual and enjoying vore

Postby LivesInAStomach » Thu Sep 16, 2021 9:03 pm

I just wanted to throw this topic out there to see what kind of replies I can get. Being asexual myself, I've always been interested in how asexuality can interact with vore. I definitely have seen various writers and artists on Eka's Portal who are openly asexual, so I know we exist!

And just in case someone out there is confused... it's totally possible to be asexual but still have kinks. Asexuality as a whole is a spectrum, and everybody experiences their asexuality a little differently. Me personally, I generally dislike most depictions of genitals, as well as any kind of sex, penetrative or otherwise. But I'm a huge preyslut and I love consuming (heh) all types of vore media whenever I can. I'm an avid roleplayer and I never have my characters display sexual arousal or engage in any sexual activity. They can blush, sure, and feel excited about being eaten, but it's never due to sexual pleasure/lust. I have no interest in "normal" vanilla pornography, but vore just tickles my brain in the right way. Of course, I would still probably say that vore is by its very nature a NSFW activity. But I just get a different kind of enjoyment out of it than the average vore fan out there.

Anybody else out there who is an asexual vore fan who wants to share their experience? Or, alternatively—anybody who doesn't need sexual activities to have a good time with vore.

While I can't say that I'm asexual myself (quite the opposite because I'm just a sex-crazed maniac), it's definitely great to hear perspectives such as yours. It gives a good insight into what vore is like for other people and how different sexualities see it. I honestly would have never thought that asexuals would have been capable of having kinks like this because, well, vore is essentially tied to sexual excitement.

The good thing for me being a wholesome pred is the ability to see past the whole "eating people like sex, sex good" vibe that vore sometimes has to it. Sure, I still get excited when I see that kind of content, but I much prefer the act of consuming someone (even through lewder organs) out of love for one another and the urge to be close. Vore and endo in general is one of those things that sends me the vibe of "the closest way to be with someone is to physically have them inside your body", where you're able to able to provide a cozy and safe shelter.

Because, in essence, that's what true love should be about, right? Wanting to spend all the time you have next to the one person you enjoy being around? Perhaps I'm crazy, maybe I'm fantasizing and delving into the philosophy of love and attraction, but I feel that's why that strong connection to wholesome non-sexual vore.

BadlyDrawnDedede, I'm very glad you enjoyed reading about my experience. I think you've hit the nail on the head, and you're certainly not crazy. :) I enjoy vore for the intimacy of it all, and being as close as possible to the people I care about. Perhaps I'm the crazy one, for finding a place like the stomach to be an incredibly intimate and also relaxing place, both physically and mentally. When I'm in a stomach I don't have to worry about anything, I'm no longer a part of the outside world and so the responsibilities of the outside world can't affect me.

I'm asexual too!! Not the same way as you, though, unfortunately.

(extreme TMI warning for the rest of this post lol)
I have a really weird relationship with sexuality and vore. I've been into vore since before I can even remember, I used to get off to it as a kid without realizing that what I was doing was even connected to sex. When I found out that it was connected to sex, I was horrified and disgusted and stopped for a considerable period of time. And then inevitably puberty hit and I ended up being like... what if I just let go of the disgust. I was half asleep at the time but I think I ended up dreaming some stuff? And then I kinda drifted away from vore in favour of getting off to more average things. I originally found furry art from instagram and started looking at that because I thought "well I'm a girl I guess I'm supposed to be into men" (don't worry, I never interacted with anyone or looked at anything explicitly nsfw while I was a minor...I was too grossed out lol).

I was still really repulsed by anything sexual in real life, but art I could handle. As long as it wasn't explicit. I mostly enjoyed actions or scenarios more than people's bodies, if that makes any sense. I read a lot of fanfiction haha, that way I didn't have to look at anything I didn't want to see, I could skip sections I didn't like, or just imagine stuff however I wanted to imagine it.

Fast forward a considerable amount of time and I had just gotten together with my second-ever partner (this was around the beginning of uni). They're dmab (nonbinary), and at the time I was terrified of real-life penises. Vaginas I could handle the concept of because I had one and because they don't stick out as much lol. But anyways I ended up with my hand between their legs one time and turns out I was afraid for nothing? It's just a body part, really. I dunno, I guess they're still kinda nasty, but it's fine now? It also helps that my partner is on HRT and has a very feminine penis haha, it's not scary and their cum is clear and tastes pleasant. I guess I just did some exposure therapy lol.

I mostly forgot about my vore thing for a while, until on a whim one day I decided to google it. Some friends had been making fun of it, and told me it was 'sexual cannibalism'. I was curious. For some more context I'm vegetarian and was terrified of cannibalism. Golum fucked me up, dude. Spooky, he threatened to eat the hobbits. Anyways, I expected a lot of blood and guts and cooking and spookiness. The results I actually found ended up being,,,, kind of exactly what I remembered imagining as a kid. But better-realized because it was art done by actual adults lol. Over time my tastes in vore have gotten more explicitly sexual and significantly more depraved lol. Exposure therapy.

Fast forward a tiny bit more, and I started taking testosterone. That shit Really affects your sexuality. Nowadays I'd say I'm more gray-ace than anything? I can kind of experience sexual attraction towards strangers but it's never as powerful as it seems to be for everyone else. I'm way more into vore than I am into 'hot people'. Like I said, actions/scenarios do way more for me than bodies.

Vore is still definitely a sexual thing for me, but I totally see how it could be nonsexual. It's similar to reading fanfiction for the romantic connection vs for the sexual connection, I think. Well not exactly. But anyways.

I've basically just explained my lifestory here so sorry for the rambling lol. I like being able to talk about myself and I've never really had an opportunity to tell anyone about all this before? My asexuality interacts with my vore kink in a big way, I think, and I love talking about my various identities lol.

You aren't the only ace folks I know who enjoy it.

Personally, I can be a VERY sexual person, but I'm not always. I'm kind of a grey on the ace spectrum edges. And I definitely have times when i enjoy vorish stuff as just... satisfyingly strange cuddling.

Then there are times when I make it extremely lewd. It depends on my state at the time. :gulp:

I'm ace as well, am generally more on the sex repulsed end of things, and have never had any real interest in sex outside of fiction (and even in fiction I'm pretty picky when it comes to how it's depicted), but vore has always been a fetish/kink for me o3o While there are times where I like it to be more fluffy, vore is definitely more sexual for me than not, and I typically imagine the characters I write or draw in vore scenarios being turned on by the thought of vore and experiencing arousal as they engage in it. I don't really like to include or describe genitalia when I do write/draw/imagine it, and I generally try to avoid making the language too pornographic, but it is still inherently sexy and arousing to me. I feel like because I don't experience sexual attraction to others and have no interest in having sex, in a lot of ways vore has kind of 'replaced' those sorts of things in my mind, and taken over that type of role.

I feel like I've seen a lot of other ace people who don't see vore as a fetish, and I have been curious about it as well, because I do feel like a bit of an odd one out in that sense. So I'm definitely interested to see other people's experiences as well!

YES!!!! SAME!!!!!!!!!!! well not quite, I do like having sex, but I'm not super Attracted to people. It's the act itself that I like. But yeah totally, vore really does replace that stuff for me a lot of the time.

chewchulainn, thanks so much for sharing. I think the vastly different opinions on vore among ace people can just be chalked up to the vastly different experiences people can have with their asexuality in general! So there's definitely no right or wrong answer, it's all about what makes you comfortable. I still think I consider vore to be a sexual fetish, and even though it affects me and arouses me, I wish it... didn't, in a way? Maybe that means I'm repulsed by sexual arousal, who knows. But I think I can relate on your sentiment that vore might have "replaced" my lack of sexual attraction to others. When I see someone pretty, I don't want to have sex with them--I either want to cuddle, or be eaten by them. ^^;

LivesInAStomach, Thank you for replying! But that does make sense really. I guess because I really haven't met many ace people who enjoy vore as a sexual thing, I sometimes feel a bit bad, because I feel like I'm in a spot where I can't fully relate to a lot of other ace vorephiles, but I also can't fully relate to a lot of more explicitly sexual vore :p But vore in general is pretty varied, so I'm sure there's lots of different niches out there.

That's interesting though, and I think that makes sense! There are definitely times where I wish certain things didn't arouse me, so I can understand that. But I am glad to know I'm not the only one who feels like vore has taken the place of sexual attraction haha. I don't generally find myself attracted to people irl, but when it comes to characters that I like, a large part of finding them attractive comes down to how well I think they would work in vorish scenarios haha.

chewchulainn, I understand your frustrations, I feel that too—that I can't relate to explicitly sexual vore, yet I also still experience some sexual feelings (no matter how much I don't want to). Guess that shows that being ace is a spectrum, huh? But I definitely also relate to your last point! That's definitely my thought process when I see art of a cute/attractive character. My mind instantly wanders to what kind of pred/prey they'd be, or what kinds of vore shenanigans they'd get themselves into.

I used to be against sexual stuff in Vore but as I explored my fetish more and zeroed in on the kind of Vore that appeals to me. I got less put off by actual sex in Vore. Because it became just another aspect of my preferences. It's odd because sex on it's own does very little for me without some kind of romantic or erotic element to back it up. I consider erotica separate from sex because sex IRL is much like death IRL in that it has no respect for drama or appropriate narrative cues. So casual sex in Vore does nothing for me. Sex that's about the prey being dominated by the Pred or about the Pred trying to give back some of pleasure they feel from devouring the Prey or communicating the pleasure and excitement that devouring the prey brings them, or as a means of expressing the romantic connection between the Predator and Prey. Has meaning to me. Sex with no meaning to either character has no meaning to me though.

Ixtili, I can definitely understand enjoying sex for narrative purposes. Same reason I don't like "grab and gulps", if there's little emotion and passion between the two characters then I'm less interested. Thank you for sharing your perspective.

terannmeapart, no worries about rambling or being TMI! That's why I wanted to make this thread after all, to gather different perspectives. Thank you so much for being so open about your experiences and sharing them. I'm glad to give you the opportunity! It's always nice to talk about your identity and have it be affirmed by people who feel (mostly) the same way.

Honestly I do not even know how I would classify myself at this point. I am not and never have been aroused or interested by “normal” pornography or sex, it does not elicit any response from me, not disgust, not arousal, just complete indifference, only vore and a few other obscure fetishes have ever made me feel sexually interested. Having said that, if an actual person ever offered to have “normal” sexual relations with me I would probably not turn them down although I see no point in attempting to actively pursue such relations on my own, not sure if that disqualifies me or what but that is how I feel. As things stand for me now I will probably just keep indulging in vore for as long as it works for me.

As an ace myself, I have more of a getting into a mood when it comes to vore over anything else. I don't find myself very interested or reacting to sex but vore? Hell yes. Sorry if this feels like a ramble, I'm tired ^^;
But yes, I'm asexual and what ever arousal I have is more with vore than anything else. Maybe it's due to my no interest in sex or sexual interactions that my body sought after stuff that does bring arousal. Then again, I had had reactions to vore since before I hit puberty and didn't know why it felt such a good reaction until later on.
Again, sorry for the rambles. I'm surprised but happy that there are other asexual posters in this community.

Yeah I've never got off to anything but vore (and vore-adjacent concepts).
I've always had the entirety of my sex drive directed towards eating, even before I was perverted enough to get off to it (which was ridiculously late, at 19). I think I am attracted to people, but never in a sexual way, I tend to think of their sexual parts as like the black bit of a banana, and the thought of touching those parts or god forbid having sex has always been disgusting to me, though less viscerally so as I've aged. To the extent I'm drawn to people's bodies, it's their stomachs, arses, thighs, anywhere they store the energy they've consumed.
I love watching all these dignified, vibrant souls walking around in towers of jiggly flesh that they've built out of other living things to satisfy their own gluttony, and the more needlessly and extravagantly fleshy they are the more I love them. I want them to satisfy my gluttony, and sink into my stomach to make me even more obscenely jiggly than I already am, and give up their souls to my vanity, and to that extent I'm attracted to them, but it's a desire distant enough from practical reality that it never really compels me to form the specific kind of adult relationships that sexual desire does.

The first few times I saw sexual content mixed in with vore art, I wasn't into it, but I've slowly warmed to it. Sex still does nothing for me, but it's a weakness and a joy that most people share, which makes it a part of the human condition and therefore worth consuming. Still not a fan of overly sexualised art styles, especially ones that give characters unrealistically large titties or schwangs (I suspect that comically giant tits and penii might be a fertility meme among men more than something that actually gets anyone off- please feel free to correct me), but realistic and vulnerable depictions of sex can make me invested in a character in a way that makes their triumph or digestion more enjoyable.

Anyway, thanks for opening this thread. It's good to see how other asexuals feel about the community.

EmilyNidhoggr, thank you for going into such detail about your experience! It's also fascinating to read not only how other asexuals feel, but predators as well, since I am mostly prey. I did like your analogy comparing naughty bits to the brown parts of a banana, that definitely resonates with me.

Postby Matteo42 » Fri Sep 17, 2021 11:25 am

Hey there!

I'm not sure what I am, really. I'm quite attracted to gals as a whole, like a lot of young adults like me, but I never think about fucking peo- oh wait, that's asexuality. Huh, guess I'm that, then...

Seriously though, I fullheartedly understand what you mean and how you feel, Livin (imma call you that lol). Sex has never appealed me, and when we studies the human sex organs back in 3rd grade, I had this awfully painful feeling, like every droplet of blood in my system came and tried to burst my eardrums at once. Not hot, like sexually aroused. Legitimately painful. Of course, I tried to hide it as best as I could, and never told a soul about it until now.
Now that I think about it, what you describe perfectly represents how I went through puberty, and am living now too! (mostly). I don't mind characters getting sexually aroused by squishing another person down their throat. I don't dislike CV nor UB, except when the cock belongs to a guy (I know, that means only futas. M/? just aint my thing, really, but I can appreciate it when it's well made and not too in-your-face that it's a prime alpha male or whatever). However, this changes when it's 3D art/photo manips.
UB is still okay, I don't mind some more photo-realistic art of it, but CV is just... geuhghh, I really don't like it, and I can't explain why.

What is vore for me? It's basically what sex is to most people, only even more private. And I do mean **private**
Recently, I was talking with some young woman on Discord about our trips in Europe (we were each on a different one. She was like in Spain, and I was in Italy). I mentioned at some point that I write short stories, and she asked me to send her one of them. Considering the only thing I write is vore stories, I didn't know what to do, and I couldn't get it over my heart to tell her about it. We're not super well known acquaintances; we've been talking on-off for a few months after meeting on a server, but that's it. Despite that, I really did not know if I trusted her enough with the information of what excites me, so I took one of the stories and modified it. I took the whole vore part away, and changed the end so it was a cliffhanger leading to *something* they would not come to know, and told her that "I edited it, maybe you'll get to read the rest if I tell you about this 'guilty pleasure' of mine".
Was this a mistake? Should I just go around telling people "hey, I might be asexual, and write stories about people eating each other because that turns me on more than using another living person as a condom!"? I don't know, and I don't think I'll ever know.


Sorry if I went a bit off-track lmao
I'm not good at staying within a theme or whatever.
Thanks for making this post lad. I don't talk about my feelings often, nor do I like talking about them a lot, but getting to talk about this stuff once every so often really does make my day haha

See ya ;D

Matteo42, thanks so much for sharing! No need to worry about staying within a "theme"... I think the theme here is mainly just talking about our experiences with sexual feelings and vore, how they interact, and the kinds of things we enjoy about vore.

I'm fine telling people that I'm asexual, but I think I draw the line at telling people that I'm into vore. Unfortunately... the general population really views vore as something gross or unsavory. People still view furries in that light too. As much as I wish I could write essays about how much I enjoy vore and how intimate it can be, to convince people that vore isn't so bad... that's not my job. Who knows, maybe there are some open-minded people who wouldn't see me differently if they knew I was into this stuff.

As an asexual vore fan who prefers to use the term "fantasy", one of the reasons for that is to do with my understanding of what the terms "kink" and "fetish" mean. I'm under the impression that a kink is something that makes sexual intercourse more fun whereas a fetish is something that's required for sexual intercourse to be fun. Since not even vore can make sex fun for me, I don't feel right calling it a kink or a fetish, even if by other people's definitions it is.

It's not my place to tell someone else what their sexuality is, but from what you've described here, I don't see anything that disqualifies you from being ace. Have you been to the Asexual Visibility & Education Network yet? They might help you figure out where (if anywhere) on the ace spectrum you fall.

I'm fortunate enough to have some friends who are cool with knowing that I'm into vore even though they're not into it. We sometimes makes little jokes about it, but nothing hurtful. These same friends also know that I'm ace.

For me, the ability to be open about things without having to fear being judged is arguably the best thing about companionship, platonic or otherwise. I feel that until I can trust someone with that kind of information, we can't be anything more than casual friends.
