An asexual person (Ace) does not experience sexual attraction. Research suggests that approximately one percent of the population is asexual. Others exist in the spectrum between asexuality and non-asexuality. Asexuals are of course able to have complete lives and meaningful relationships. Some asexual individuals may have romantic relationships and others do not. As with any sexual orientation, asexuality is not defined by behavior; so abstaining from sex does not make someone asexual. Similarly, having sex for whatever reason does not invalidate someone’s core identity as asexual.
