Masturbation/Last one left


Hello steven

I read some of the past questions and I've had one for a very long time. I am 19years old and female. Im starting my sophomore year in college 2 of my roommates are 21 and the other is younger she just turned 18. they are all sexually active or have been in the past. I on the other hand am not, an for some reason have no desire to have sex. my roommates tell me how great it is and that I should do it. is it normal for me not to be interested in sex?? would me not being in a relationship be a cause of that also?? im just curious because I honestly fee like I may never really have that desire.

I am not Steven but I will answer anyway.

Most women your age are or are starting to be sexually active.  If you have no desire to, then it will not hurt you to wait longer.  I would advise against having sex just for the sake of it.  I would suggest instead getting in a relationship and seeing where it goes.  Could you ask your roommates to introduce you to a male that you would want to go out with?  I think that is the place to start.

I write from the point of view that masturbation is normal, healthy, and fun, and even necessary to sexual health. I am able to answer questions in all areas of sexuality.


I am the author of the web site and have been answering questions about sexuality (especially masturbation) from both males and females for over 13 years.

I have a Ph.D. in a field unrelated to sexuality from one of the leading educational institutions in the world.
