Notes and Reflections on Books and Media

The Psychology of Human Sexuality

Justin J. Lehmiller



"For instance, in chapter 6, we discussed the notion of asexuality, a sexual orientation in which an individual simply has no desire for sexual contact with others. Approximately 1% of the population is
thought to be asexual (Boaert, 2004), and for such individuals, a lack of sexual activity is not problematic at all." - Justin J. Lehmiller, The Psychology of Human Sexuality (2013)

Men routinely try to date me on Facebook, so I should be clear: I'm asexual. I have a shadow of a sexuality, but for now I only discuss that privately. I can perhaps imagine a romantic connection with another asexual woman, but I don't think anything else is possible.
