Affirmative Practice: Debunking Myths About Asexuality

By Rachel L. West, MSW, LMSW

HuffPost Live has an interview with Clinical Psychologist Lori Brotto on the myths of asexuality. You can watch the interview here on Huffington Post.

The definition of asexuality given by the Asexual Visibility and Education Network is as follows:

An asexual is someone who does not experience sexual attraction. Unlike celibacy, which people choose, asexuality is an intrinsic part of who we are. Asexuality does not make our lives any worse or any better, we just face a different set of challenges than most sexual people. (source: Asexual Visibility & Education Network)
