Was watching the netflix documentary and found that Dan Savage's comments were kind of grating on me. Out of curiosity, I ran a google search on Savage and Asexuality, and came across this article: http://www.thestrang...eLove?oid=22958 The quote that really caught my eye however, was at the end of his response, where he writes " Hmm, I respectfully dissent. While it's possible that your husband is content with the odd perfunctory blowjob, it's more likely that he doesn't press the matter because he loves you. But he probably misses women's people-parts, INH, and one day the opportunity to fuck the shit out of another woman's people-parts is going to present itself. And this, I think, will be the ultimate test of your asexual cred. If you don't think sex is important, then it shouldn't matter to you if your husband does this hugely unimportant thing with someone else."
This bugged me for some reason. Like just because I'm asexual, I HAVE to accept that my partner may seek sex elsewhere? I think that's a really generalizing statement, and that it would really depend on the individual situation. Me personally? I can't see myself in an open relationship, or sharing my partner with anyone else.
Am I alone in finding Savage's position a little insulting?
