It was a long road to finally figure out that I am, in fact, Asexual. You see, growing up, I never knew anyone who was Gay, Lesbian or Bi, never mind Asexual. As such, for the longest time, I just figured I was straight & thought everyone else was as well. It wasn't until high school that I started questioning whether I actually was straight & that wasn't until grade 10. It was in grade 9 that I became sexually aroused for the first time (and due to the fact that I repeated a grade & the fact that my birthday is more or less a month into the school year), I was nearly 15 when that happened.
Fast forward to grade 11, in science class, the teacher mentioned Asexuality in insects, which prompted someone to ask if Asexuality is possible in humans. Which was the first time I ever heard the word Asexuality.
Years later, in May of 2006, I had sex for the first and only time. Immediately afterwards, all I could think about was getting Plan B. Needless to say, in the weeks/months that followed, I started to wonder why people make such a big deal of sex, as it wasn't all it was cracked up to be, I found. Then the more I thought about it, the more sex seemed more like a hassle. However, it wasn't until mid August that I finally realized I'm Ace. Through an unexpected place though, an astrology forum. (Long story behind that).
