The wonderful thing about the internet is that you can learn something new every day. After reading an article in our Order’s journal that mentions the term ‘asexuality’, I followed the link it gave to this informative site: www.asexuality.org
It offered this definition of the term:
An asexual is someone who does not experience sexual attraction. Unlike celibacy, which people choose, asexuality is an intrinsic part of who we are. Asexuality does not make our lives any worse or any better, we just face a different set of challenges than most sexual people. There is considerable diversity among the asexual community; each asexual person experiences things like relationships, attraction, and arousal somewhat differently. Asexuality is just beginning to be the subject of scientific research.
