In the last few years, "asexuality" has become more recognised.

An asexual person does not feel any sexual attraction for either sex and therefore does not wish to engage in a sexual relationship.

Asexual people can still meaningful relationships and live as loving couples.

Some studies suggest that 1 to 5% of the population could be asexual.

Sometimes, there are underlying causes to asexuality and if you are concerned, it is a good idea to speak with your friends or GP:
  • If you have not found the right person with whom you are completely comfortable
  • Bad experiences in previous relationships
  • If you are afraid of failure
  • If you are denying any homosexual feelings
  • If you are in a relationship which is no longer intimate
