Is asexual a synonym for chaste?

Posted by: Foodiesoul

One of the definitions of chaste is "not having sex" and asexual people have a very low interest in sex so they don't really engage in sexual activities. Does this mean that all asexual people could be considered chaste?

A conscious decision to not have sex despite the capacity for sexual desire is one possible reason for asexuality, but another reason is low testosterone (in males).

Asexuals do not have sexual desire, you cannot be asexual despite the capacity for sexual desire

Humans are not asexual. Asexual means that an organism can reproduce by it' self. Humans only have half the required D. N. A. In our gametes
