i agree. thats 1 in 100 people. i feel as though its at least 1 in 1000 people. unless its just that people arnt as open as i am.
I've heard statistics say around 1% of the world population. Still seems a little too high, in my opinion (1% of the entire world is a lot of people).

yeah, not sure where you're from, but think about your town population. I live in Ottawa which has a million people. 1% of a million is 10,000. Ten THOUSAND asexuals in Ottawa alone! If that stat is true, I feel so surrounded by fellow aces!
You have to keep in mind that this also means you're surrounded by 990.000 sexuals.
I was just at a presentation of a research of sexual behavior in my country, it was the first research dealing with the entire population and not specific subgroups so it included many types of behavior. The question closest to asexuality was whether they've had a sexual experience and in the oldest group (I think it was from 35-49) there was 1% of those who didn't have any. So I guess this percentage is quite right, although there is a possibility that some declined the participation after finding out it's a survey about sexual behavior where they couldn't contribute.

Even then I say 10,000,000 of those are never made sexually aware and carry on with life without it, I only recently become aware of it some 6 months ago. Maybe it's more, but no one really knows without an extensive global Census/study on it.
Which is why this site doesn't have 70,000,000 members

Also, do you think asexuality could be genetic? Both of my aunts on my dads side are single and in their 50's...I'm pretty sure they don't date and they don't have hookups either. And they have never been married.
