About: Hermann Baumann

I’m a rarity: an asexual — a human with absolutely no desire for sex. Doctors have told me it’s in my brain. Well, it doesn’t matter. Sexual attraction is just an idea to me, and since I’ve never known it, it shouldn’t be much of a concern. . . . And yet it is. I live in a world full of people who promote human sexuality above all else. And that I can’t relate tears me apart sometimes. I have friends who love and even worship sex, and I don’t even speak their language. The worst part is: I feel like an outside because I live in a world driven by the one thing I can’t taste.
