I Don't Feel Sexual Attraction When I See People

Hi Betty,

I'm 26-year-old, and English is not my mother tongue, so forgive me for any mistakes in writing

I am writing you because I have a problem that I don't know how to identify and I don't know how to solve.

Puzzle's pieces (it took me one hour to finish this!)

1) I don't feel "sexual attraction" when I see people - men or women - I don't find them sexually attractive, some people are aesthetically more (physically or mentally) beautiful than others, and I'm able to fell in love (once in 1'000 years), with "butterflies in my stomach" and so on, but it's all here. No "sexual attraction". No desire. Nothing.

Dear Betty,

as much as sex has a big part in my life (in theory and practice), i understand that there are people who have little or no interest in sex. mostly those people are pressured that they have any psychological or physical problem and they should take care of it. their way of desire or even non-desire are pathologized.

Dear Betty,

I am a 20 year old woman who feels very apathetic towards sex and masturbation in general. I didn't masturbate as a child. I never "discovered" my clitoris, nor did I ever play with it. It was something I just didn't think about doing. Even today I am hardly sexual. I have brought myself to orgasm, and it was purely exploratory on my part. I didn't enjoy, nor did I dislike the experience.

Why Does Sex Matter So Much?

This piece from ABC News is exactly what we'll be talking about in our Valentine's Day video podcast this Friday. There are many different kinds of love and gender/orientation/sexuality have very little to do with any of it.

In a society obsessed with sex, David Jay wants no part of it. 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.
