I'm a 41 year old gay female who thinks she might be asexual. I have Asperger's, schizophrenia and diabetes, if it's relevant.
I'm in a relationship with a woman, but it hasn't been sexual since 2008. This doesn't bother me at all. In fact, the sexual side died very quickly - although I mostly enjoyed it, I was relieved when it stopped. I began to find it tiresome after a month or so (not to mention it gave me performance anxiety). We don't live together, and some people have said they don't understand how I can be happy in a relationship without "sex on tap".
I've had many crushes and been "in love" a number of times, but there's never been a sexual component to them. This hadn't dawned on me until recently.
I've seen plenty of people who I think are hot to look at, but don't want to have sex with. I do masturbate rarely, and will watch sex on TV (but increasingly, the latter doesn't have much effect on me). I can quite happily see myself never having sex again.
