Being Asexual

I’m a woman in her late twenties. For the longest time, I’ve wondered whether I could be asexual. I’ve brushed it off thinking it was because I’ve never been in a relationship, ergo never been intimate. But as the days go by, and with increasing pressure to marry as I approach my thirties, it has become more and more solidified that I don’t want sex. In any shape or form. This doesn’t mean that I don’t experience romantic attractions, just that I don’t have any sexual urges, although I will admit to have watched some adult films here and there. I don’t know how to cope with the fact that I will eventually be forced to marry ‘somebody of my choosing’ and keep up the bloodline as you do. I don’t know how I can bring myself to tell the person I will eventually have to be married to that I don’t want physical intimacy. And it worries me every single day. I can only wish there was a choice for me.
