A small number of adults have absolutely no interest in sex?in the UK, anyway. A psychologist looked at a poll of 18,00 people taken in 1994 in the UK, asking people about their sex lives, which contained the statement, "I've never felt sexually attracted to anyone at all." 1% of respondents said they felt this way.
A study of asexuals in the US, also done in 1994, showed that 13% of the 3,500 people polled had had no sex in the past year, but 40% of them said they were happy with their lives anyway.
Some psychologists would say this is impossible, that these people are simply repressing their real desires, especially when they involve things like homosexuality, sadism, masochism and pedophilia.
The Asexual Visibility and Education Network sells a tee-shirt that says, "Asexuality: it's not just for amoebas anymore."
