Asexuality: The ultimate sexual taboo?
« on: January 25, 2014, 03:32:39 PM »
Nearly every variation on human sexual desire has been discussed and analyzed, its merits evaluated, and its moral implications debated.  What about asexuality?  In a culture where it is assumed that everyone loves sex, can a person admit that they have no interest in sex without being branded dysfunctional and in need of help?  There are people (Stephen Fry is a famous example) who voluntarily choose celibacy for a variety of personal reasons.  Why is it assumed that there must be something "wrong" with such a person that needs to be fixed?  Doesn't this sound suspiciously like the old argument against homosexuality?
