When you define your sexuality, you are often given the choice of heterosexual, homosexual, or bisexual. But what about asexuality?
The term 'asexual' is not widely used, and only a small portion of people in the UK identify themselves as asexual. That's why, when I tell people I am demi-asexual, there is a lot of confusion surrounding what that actually means.
Some people think that being asexual simply means you reject sex. This is not the case, as many asexual people have sex and can enjoy sex - they just don't feel the same amount of immediate sexual attraction that other people do.
There are so many levels to asexuality, and it can be difficult to understand, but this is no excuse for others to treat asexual people any differently.
Through my project, I hope to change people's perceptions of asexuality so that people who are asexual feel comfortable and proud, and equally treated by everyone else.
