Bradford Cox of Deerhunter recently appeared on Start Making Sense, the Beats 1 radio show hosted by Jenny Beth of Savages, and candidly discussed his sexuality, sexual history, and how all of this informs his music.
"There's so many types of sexuality, but one that I think is overlooked is to be asexual," Cox said. "I am absolutely asexual, I am a virgin at 34 years old." Beth remarked that she doesn't view his music as asexual, and Cox agreed with that assessment. "I feel attracted so much to music that is asexual but... my musical life is very much a pendulum."
