ROZENTHAL, Eduardo. Asexuality: a psychoanalytical look to the future. Cad. psicanal. [online]. 2018, vol.40, n.38, pp.111-124. ISSN 1413-6295.

In this article, I try to show that, from the perspective of psychoanalysis, unlike asexuality as sexual and gender identity, it is possible to establish it as the singularity of the subject. This crucial displacement elevates asexuality to the bodily force of creation level or force of sublimation. This one is capable of promoting the stylization of the subject, style meaning force of being what the subject is. The sublimation removes social ideals and the consequent disputes over recognition, allowing infinite sexualities to approach in the public space:each individual corresponds to a singular sexual identity.

Keywords : Psychoanalysis; Asexuality; Singularity; Identity; Sublimation.
