I tried to find an answer on the net in special websites about sex and porn when I was a teenager, to check out if I was weird, I also had a self-sexual period, thanks to the hormones revolution, but nothing else after that. However, it helped me to learn and not being defenceless if this topic is ever mentioned, I even pull out all my modesty when talking about it.
Two years ago, I found a blog where asexuality was mentioned, but it was 6 months ago when I discovered AVEN, read about asexuality and felt identified. How ironic that blog was about anti-sex.
