Jennifer testifies that, “there is so much more variety than this box or that box.” As an asexual woman, she thought maybe she was broken when she realized she didn’t feel attractions to men or women. This feeling of being broken intensified after she was married and found that she not only didn’t enjoy having sex, though she was lead to believe this was normal, but her body didn’t react the way others’ did–sex was a painful, traumatic experience, even when it was sweet and tender. Only after she gave up the idea that she needed to be married and have a sexual partner (and put aside the gender roles she had been taught) did she find peace in her life and the excitement to keep living it.
