In the short-lived USA comedy—it only had two seasons—Voodoo was openly asexual.
Brad (Sidney Franklin), Faking It
MTV’s series about best friends who fake being lesbians was sure to include the entire spectrum of sexuality. So it’s no surprise that Brad’s asexuality was included in the mix.
Rose (Betty White), Golden Girls
The group of spunky senior citizens was always discussing different hot topics, one of which was Rose’s distaste for sex. She claimed to never have had any sexual desires, despite being married to a man for years.
