Fine With A Life Without Sex

Published: July 31, 2013
Dear TeenhealthFX,
I'm a 19 year old female. I want to be celibate for life. I experience sexual attraction and I have a libido (I masturbate a lot) but I have no desire to actually have sex ever. I've never had any sort of sexual trauma or been repressed or anything. I just don't ever want to have sex. The idea of sex, particularly vaginal/oral/anal sex disgusts me too. Is there anything wrong with me because I feel this way? I'm fine with never having sex but how can I explain this to my parents?

Dear Fine With A Life Without Sex,

If you are comfortable with your feelings then there should be no reason to believe that anything is wrong with you. Many people choose celibacy as a way of life and have very positive views about its benefits.

When talking to parents about sexuality it is always best to do it when you are ready to have this discussion with them. You will know when you are ready because the words will be easier to find. Just be honest and be yourself.  That is the best any of us can do.
