Jackie Bell doesn’t like sex. But she does enjoy a good snuggle.
The 43-year-old attends monthly “cuddling” sessions in Wellington, where up to 20 clothed people consent to hug and touch. Sexual contact is forbidden.
“It’s like being at a sexless orgy,” Bell says.
If experts are right, about 40,000 New Zealanders are “asexuals” who feel no sexual attraction at all.
