The Dewey Decimal Number

According to, the only Dewey Decimal number I could find so far for asexuality in particular is 571.8429: “Asexual reproduction–microorganisms” and “Reproduction by asexual spores” is 571.847. This of course applies to “reproduction and growth of cells” (science) as opposed to a human sexual orientation (social science). Another page of the same source lists “sexual orientation, transgenderism, intersexuality” as 306.76, which would should include information about any sexual orientation, as the umbrella 306.7 is “sexual relations.” This is just a general thought for later exploration, but perhaps we see can expect to see asexuality materials in our libraries under 306.76 someday soon!
