How to use "Desexualize" in context?

When I was younger, there was a certain expectation that I would become sexually active and reproduce ASAP. Needless to say, this "default setting" for female sexuality didn't resonate with me and I ended up desexualizing myself in order to be true to myself. Today, I see that this was the right thing to do. Becoming desexualized not only allowed me to be myself but also allowed me to have healthier, more fulfilling relationships.
