An asexual person is defined as ‘a person who does not experience sexual attraction’ by the Asexual Visibility and Education Network (AVEN), but Corinna believes there is so much sex in everyday life that many people do not accept that someone is not sexually minded.
‘There are a lot of misconceptions surrounding asexuality, and often you are labelled as just boring if you are asexual,’ says Corinna.
‘But many asexuals are not starving themselves of sex – they just simply believe in finding the right person and not acting on lust, or they purely are happy to not have sex again so do not need to “deny” themselves.
‘I hope my short film shows the mental struggles asexual people often face, and how people could be more accommodating of sexual orientations which may be different to their own.’
Corinna, from Bangor, North Wales, hopes to distribute the film among education institutions in her area.
