Those Who Have No Interest in Sex Want More Awareness of Orientation

Jay, a 26-year-old graduate student at the Presidio School of Management in San Francisco, acknowledges that his lack of interest in sex may seem unusual to many who view intercourse as the epitome of intimacy.

But research suggests that about 1 percent of the population may share Jay's view on sex. And he said that for many of these people, coming to terms with their feelings about sex can be a major challenge.



"When I was younger, the message I would always hear is that you need sex to be happy," he said. "I realized probably around the age of 14 or 15 that all of my friends were actively talking about sex. I just couldn't relate to it; I had no interest at all."

Isnt there something inherently weird about wanting recognition for not recognizing something?

Did the testosterone fairy not sprinkle her magic in this guy's balls when he was a kid?

These fools are just trolling for tramps. They know some slut is going to see that video on you tube and say "I bet I can get those dorks interested in sex".

Anybody who can asexually reproduce is impressive in my book ;)

In religious circles this is called the gift of celibacy. It is considered a gift in that it allows one to concentrate totally on God. The Apostle Paul was one of these gifted individuals, and he writes about it in I Corinthians 7.

Personally, I am glad I don't have such a gift.

I officially recognize all the males that don't want sex. I encourage as much male homsexuality and asexuality as possible. Just don't whimp out and come back to the home team. Stay with your convictions and fight the good fight.

Leaves more for the rest of us :D

*Ps; Dude is a goober.*

I kinda get it. If I were given a choice between sex and an "Angry Whopper" I would most definitely choose the sandwich. However, If I could have them both, i would still choose the sandwich.
