Fashion consultant Tim Gunn says that he's identified as asexual since the 80s when he ended a nearly decade long relatiip. After he found out that his boyfriend had been sleeping around, Gunn ended his sexual activity forever. 

Gunn said, "One night he told me he’d been sleeping around. I could hardly breathe from grief, humiliation and despair. Much of my boyfriend’s 'I’m over this' was about sex. I’ve always been kind of asexual. That breakup was a cold shower to last a lifetime."

Deerhunter and Atlas Sound front man Bradford Cox has often stated that he is asexual in interviews. While speaking with Rolling Stone in 2011 he said, "I don’t hide anything, but I also don’t really highlight anything either. For a long time I just said I was asexual, but now I just realized that… I’m still, I guess… I mean, I’m queer. I just sort of, don’t really have a very big self-esteem, so asexuality is sort of like a comfort zone where you don’t get rejected."
