Asexy Kink

Emily, female, 22, United States. I have known that I am asexual since I was 20 and my then-boyfriend broke up with me for “not thinking he was hot.” It was at that point that I realized that there was truly something different about the way I interacted with other people. From there my story…

How I Came to Know What I Am

Svar, genderfluid, United States. I used to think I was just a prudish straight girl.
