5 Ways to Better Understand Asexuality

Reviewed by: Understanding Asexuality by Anthony F. Bogaert Marianne E. LeBreton Understanding Asexuality. By Anthony F. Asexuality is a sexual orientation that is often overlooked; it has garnered little attention from the scientific community compared to other sexual orientations.

Bogaert, who is himself a sex researcher at Brock University. The scientific study of asexuality is barely a decade old. About one percent of the general population is estimated to be asexual. Give or take. There are a lot of numbers floating out there in the research space, largely because asexuality still lacks a clear and concise definition in the research community. Whether or not asexuality should be considered a kind of sexual disorder — akin to hypoactive sexual desire disorder , for example — is something sex researchers have debated. But in this paper and in others before it , Bogaert argues against the idea.
