Asexuality is a sexual orientation, not dysfunction

Psychology Today and Teen Vogue featured new analysis by UBC’s Lori Brotto and Morag Yule, which concluded that asexuality is a unique sexual orientation, not a mental disorder or sexual dysfunction. They based their conclusions on findings that asexuals felt a lifelong pattern of not being attracted to anyone, and consistently lacked motivation to have sex. The findings were published online in the Archives of Sexual Behavior.
