Julie Decker from Tampa, Florida, started describing herself as ‘nonsexual’ at the age of 15 asexual dating when she became aware of the term ‘asexual’, she changed it. A 35-year-old woman has told how she has never felt sexually attracted to men or women. The outgoing blonde says that she’s had more offers of sex than she ‘wants to count’ over the years but, ‘without the feelings that usually go with that sort of thing, it’s kind of gross.
I have very close friendships but don’t want a significant other. I don’t want to find another asexual to be roommates with. Is this New York’s next first daughter of fashion? As far as I can tell I’ll be happy being single my whole life. But she concluded: ‘I never found anything that floated my boat.
She says that her family were convinced that she was a ‘closet lesbian’. She said despite there being more awareness about asexuality today, it still remains largely misunderstood. She’s had male friends try and ‘fix’ her by kissing her against her will and many insist that she will ‘wake up one day’. WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE ASEXUAL? 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.
