My personal definition is when you don't feel attracted to either sex physically. Ex: i don't really care to do girls or guys


Also separate but related,would the hormones of your biological sex have any impact? Ex: testosterone making you feel physically attracted to a woman?

Asexual means not feeling sexual desire or attraction.

Gender Neutral or agender refers to gender identity, and means that you don't identify with any genders. It has nothing to do with sexual identity.

Well, with regards to testosterone specifically, low testosterone usually causes erectile dysfunction and sometimes (but not always) reduced sexual desire.

However, an asexual guy who can get an erection is unlikely to have low testosterone. (Note that having an erection doesn't necessarily indicate sexual arousal, since erections can happen spontaneously without any accompanying emotional experience - eg 'morning wood'.)
