The term "short circuit" implies you believe asexual people have something wrong with them. Unfortunately lots of people would also say that any poly, gay, bi, queer or trans-gendered person also have something wrong with them because in most mainstream peoples' eyes we are naturally heterosexual and monogamous.
Here is a link to AVEN...they are leading authorities in the Asexual community. Their forum has over 27,000 members so there is quite a lot of experience to draw from. http://www.asexuality.org/en/
