Model/Reality star Austin Armacost comes out as asexual

Model Austin Armacost, who is currently appearing on Celebrity Big Brother and split with husband Jake Lees last year, has revealed that he is asexual.

He told show business reporter Andy West that he is a “very asexual” person, reports The Sun.

“I am probably in all honesty the least sexual person you will ever meet,” he said. “As much as I love getting my kit off and showing my bum everywhere, I am like a nun in bed.”

“I am not going to go out with someone and have sex with them,” he went on. “Even after a fourth or fifth date – that’s not what I want.”

Armacost is reportedly seeing someone else, and said that he signed up for dating/hookup app Grindr weeks after he and Lees broke up, saying, “I did it because I was bored.”

“I never met anyone at night. Well, I met a few. But they were dates,” he explained. “I don’t do that no strings attached thing, you know ‘come on over, dump your load and go’ kinda thing.”

A study conducted in 2004 by human sexuality researcher Anthony F. Bogaert revealed that approximately one percent of the world’s population is asexual.

    The safest sexual orientation. …no hassle or worries of stds or infidelities. I’d like to imagine what an asexual relationship is like, I bet its going to be heavenly. Maybe even try it, if only I can find a REAL Nigerian asexual partner, not wannabes or wishful thinkers.

    I love how so many of these bi/fluid/queer/asexual/etc identifying men only ever say vague and incomplete things. He can’t say “I’m asexual because I don’t have high sexual attraction to any gender” just like most “bi-guys” can’t say, “I’m bi-sexual because I have high sexual attraction to men and women”. So much persistent, delusional BS.

      That you don’t understand it doesn’t make it any less valid. Thought we’ve passed that stage on KD?

    Sorry oh, this might be a stupid question, but how do you get married to a man if you’re asexual? Like, how do you know you’re atttacted to a man if you have no seuxal desires/urges? Since the basis of sexuality is sexual attraction, i.e who a person is drawn to in a sexual and romantic way …

      Marriage is not only about Sex. Many people marry for different reasons. Aseexuals also marry and they have every right to if they choose to.

      Asexuals so have sex. It’s just that they derive no pleasure whatsoever in it. Theres simply no sexual attraction to give from them.

    This is a huge lie, this guy is a huge slut and used sex as his means up the social ladder. What stupid lie is he telling now? I guess this is just his way of trying to get in the news this 2017……..hogwash!

    I love this finally!!!

    Some many acephobic folks here…..disgusting!

    We claim to be a community yet some of you tell behave the same way the homophobic folks behave. A person says he is asexual why do you think he is telling a lie? How would you feel when someone says such to you because you are gay. How I’m I supposed to believe you ain’t lying?

    There is romantic and there is sexual orientation. if you don’t know go read it up. we keep mixing this things up!!! A person may not have sexual attraction doesn’t mean then don’t have romantic attraction or they completely hate sex. some do,some don’t. Depends on the individual. Yes there are asexuals who are married! Go and read! Not everyone is sexual. Remember that both gender and sexuality is fluid. it’s not just gay and straight or male and female!!

    It’s really annoying when I see folks in the community shaming others with a different orientation e.g Bisexuals, pansexuals,etc. Clear your minds people!!!

    sexual orientation is when you are sexually attracted to some one or something. It is totally different from romantic orientation which involves you have romantic attachment/attraction to someone or something.

    In Nigeria or let me say generally this two contexts are usually interwoven. As most fellows feel both sexual and romantic feelings towards their spouse.

    Now, note I said most so this excludes folks who don’t feel the same way for both sexual and romantic orientations. This is where most of the bi, pan,ace people fall in. if you are sexual and romantically attached to the same sex the correct term is “homoromantic homosexual”. But off course the term is bogus hence folks just shorten it to homosexual. Same applies to Ace I.e Asexual for short. A person may not have sexual attraction but may have romantic attraction if it’s to the same gender “homoromantic ace/asexual”….their relationships can be platonic and some like sex while some don’t. Their is a spectrum for ace as well called grey asexuality folks who barely get sexual attraction or get it when they have an emotional bond (Demisexuality).

    There are a whole lots of concepts in our community, I cant start going into details. There is an A-Z of romantic orientations. There is an asexual page on Facebook, you can follow and find out how they cope in their relationships
