 Asexuals Feel No Attraction or Interest in Sex

One may call it the fourth sexual orientation, but close to one percent of the population feel they are asexual, with no feelings of attraction.

According to experts, some 70 million people across the globe do not experience feelings of sexual attraction at all. 


Probably it is time for another category- 'fourth sexual orientation'.

Prof Bogaert, an associate professor at Brock University in Canada, said: 'There are two forms: people who have some level of sex drive, but don't direct this drive toward others (so they may masturbate); and other people who have no sex drive whatsoever.'
