Asexuality describes people who are not interested in sex. They are not celibate, as celibacy is a choice. Rather, it is innate.

One of the most common questions people ask when they first encounter an asexual person is "Is it really possible to be asexual? I thought everyone was sexual to some extent? Asexuality can't be for real.". Yes, it truly does exist, though the incidence rate is ≤1%.
