I have always known from a young age that sex was not something I was ever interested in doing. Growing up I felt isolated because all of the other kids my age were talking about and having sex, while I found the concept strange and repulsive. It was a few months ago that a friend mentioned that I might be asexual. He sent me a link to a Wikipedia article and I immediately identified with the description. While exploring the topic I came across AVEN and nearly cried from relief that there was a community where I could feel accepted. Had I not found this site I would still be wondering what was wrong with me when all along there was a world full of people with the same experiences that I have had. Finding not only a label for my experiences, but a community as well has been liberating.
With that introduction out of the way, I was just curious as to how most of you fellow AVEN members found out about asexuality.
