Causes of Asexuality: Discussion

OK, I want to point out a theory and get people’s views on it. Scientists currently think that sexual orientation is most likely determined in the womb, depending on the exposure to prenatal hormones. So, for example, a foetus that turns out to be a straight male has been exposed to more testosterone in the womb. Gays, on the other hand, are said to be exposed to more oestrogen in the womb.

Is it possible or plausible that asexual people were exposed to a smaller amount of oestrogen or testosterone while in the womb to make them asexual?

What do you think? Does anyone know any science like this about asexuality?
