Adultchild view on intercourse

I was curious to know if there are any asexual’s here?
I know this is one of the factors which contributed to my feelings of being an adult child. I’m 23yrs old, but still feel the same way about sex as I did as a child, it’s something that’s totally not on my agenda, vaguely repellent and silly that ‘grown up’s do’.
As you can imagine this became rather difficult for me as a teenager and beyond, when everybody else’s sexuality awakened, meaning I could no longer relate. As if everybody was growing up and I’d remained some kind of peter pan figure.

Even if you’re not asexual, I’d be interested to know if as an adult child your feelings about sex differ to that of what’s generally expected by society.
