2004 Index

Recommended Posts



This is an index of what was found on asexuality in 2004. Some threads contain links that will give a 404 error or non-found by now though what's possible is being retrieved with Wayback Machine or further research.

It's easy to notice that the biggest event in 2004 was the New Scientist article published on October 14th, which generated a huge reaction from the media in the rest of the world.
