Q many individuals around me are dealing with very first kisses, and also other firsts, in the event that you get what IвЂ™m saying. Even right now, they are talking and I donвЂ™t get it as I sit with my teammates. I donвЂ™t want it and if i believe about any of it I get so uncomfortable. I donвЂ™t know if it is because i’m just spiritual and thatвЂ™s the way I grew up, or if IвЂ™m asexual. People speak about just what it indicates to be gay and bi, but I donвЂ™t understand what asexuality means. And so I you know what IвЂ™m asking is How do you know if youвЂ™re asexual and what the deuce is sexual interest?вЂ”Mollie, 16
