I’m going to have sex for the first time, and if I don’t like it, I’m definitely asexual, and if I do like it, I’m definitely not.” No, main character and/or filmmakers: your argument is invalid. Attraction is not...
Please tell Puget Sound Energy to kick the coal... →
If you live in Washington State, your power bill may have a hidden climate opportunity, one that Puget Sound Energy (PSE) would prefer you didn’t know about. PSE wants everyone to think they are very green, but you may be surprised to learn if you are a PSE customer, that over 30% of your energy comes from coal. Instead, we could get it from clean energy, such as wind, which would bring...
Hospice and Nursing Homes Blog: Asexual Older... →
Frances Shani Parker: Clara Meadmore, an asexual older adult, was Britain’s oldest virgin at 105 years old. According to an article by Luke Salkeld in Mail Online, Clara credited not having sex as the secret of her longevity. Proud of her innate celibacy, she said she just wasn’t interested in all the “hassle” of having sex. Ironically, while many people wrongly stereotype older adults as being...

Update re: A Negative: Farewell to AVEN →
I just talked with Henrik today and here’s the situation. Henrik posted this yesterday to Asexual News, but one of the editor has a problem with it being posted ”especially not with the timing of everything”, whatever that means (sorry I’m not current with what’s been going on over on AVEN). Anyway, this is the reason why it keeps getting taken down. Shawn Landis, the...
CORRECTION — I got the date on Henrik's blog wrong →
Last night, I mistakenly said (see below) that this edition of A Negative was posted back in the fall since hiddenjumprope’s copy of it said it was from “29 November”. I just spoke with Henrik and he explained that he’d just posted this blog yesterday, May 1st. The reason it keeps getting taken down is that one of the editors disputes it being posted ”Especially not...
