Model 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.
