"Love But No Sex: What It’s Like Being a 23-Year-Old Asexual Woman"

Recommended Posts




Mod note -- This is a 2017. ;) 




I never understood what people meant when they said they wanted someone with a burning desire.

I never understood that if you found someone physically attractive, it was supposed to mean that you wanted to look at and touch a part of them where the ‘sun don’t shine’.

Was I just too young? People would tell me that maybe I just hadn’t fully developed physiologically yet. Was I just too immature? People would tell me maybe I haven’t found the right person yet and that I don’t know what love really is. But I didn’t feel young or immature. I only felt broken.
