This thread is split from the 2020 thread. It is for any story related to asexuality which might not deserve its own thread.

Goes on and on how not having sex for a long time is depressing for some people... And then the magic words come

"For others, abstaining from sex is important for good mental health. People may abstain from sex for many reasons, for example, because they have a low sex drive, are asexual, or simply choose not to engage in it."

Reading this, I almost burst into tears. This is exactly what I have been experiencing my whole life. Living in a sexual relationship with constant demands for sex was detrimental to my mental health, felt depressed and sometimes felt traumatized. On the contrary, living without sex has made me happy. I think there should be more studies on the effect of sexual relation to asexual pshychology.

Brief mention in the film straight Up

Todd asks his therapist "or, what if i am a hetero romantic asexual so I'm romantically attracted to women but sexually attracted to nobody" 

 

The movie is about Todd, who has only dated other men before, he is repulsed sexually due to his ocd and doesn't like bodily fluids to that decides to try to date women and meets Rory (female) in a library. They then enterred into a non-sexual relationship as it fulfils 2 of their dating needs - intellectual and interest. 

 

I must say i really enjoyed the film and love the idea their relationship

Snao Cone (me)

I attended a webinar today about identities in the + of LGBTQ+, and both asexuality and aromanticism were big parts of it. AVEN was listed as the best place for information, and some resources (ones that I wrote :ph34r:) were quoted in the presentation. It was well done. Unfortunately I can't link to the presentation itself, but it was put on by the Centre for Sexuality based out of Calgary - centreforsexuality.ca 

 

It also explained pansexuality and intersex. Very good overall.
