Anthony Boegart is the author of an often-cited study. The often-cited study is a phrase that appears through-out Asexual websites and Asexual literature. His 2004 study gives people the 1% figure for Asexuals. The new book will come out in March. Amazon.com customers can pre-order the book. The study, "Asexuality: Prevalence and associated factors in a national probability sample" is one of the first academic studies to be published after the creation of Haven for the Human Amoeba and AVEN.
“People who say they have sexual attraction to others, but indicate little or no desire for sexual activity are also self-identifying as Asexual. Distinct from celibacy, which refers to sexual abstinence by choice”, reads the book's description.
Understanding Asexuality represents a continuation of Boegart's earlier work. He sees Asexuality as a distinct orientation, but he uses a broader definition of the term than the Asexual Visibility and Education Network. Boegart is a professor of Community Health Sciences and Psychology at Brock University.
