An asexual person is someone who does not experience sexual attraction and about 1 percent of the population report this feeling.
According to Dr Eve asexuality is a new form of sexual orientation and identity.
Asexual people say I have never had any sexual attraction; I don’t have the need and the desire to be sexual with somebody.— Dr Eve, clinical sexologist
Listen to the full conversation on The Redi Tlhabi Show:
Dr Eve said that asexual people do want to fall in love but they don’t want to have sex with anyone just like there are people who want sex and not a relationship.
She further said that research has revealed that asexual people are born that way and people should not pathologise people who do not want to have sex.
