Hello everyone! I wanted to take a minute to let you all know that I started an Asexual Book Club group on Facebook! I wanted to join an Asexual themed book club, but couldn’t find one, even online, so I decided to start my own! As you would probably assume, the club will read a new book each month that relates in some way to asexuality, whether it be fiction or nonfiction. I’m open to suggestions for books if you know any good ones!
I know I don’t talk a whole lot here on my blog about identifying as asexual, but it is something that is part of my life. Many people don’t understand the concept at all, thinking asexual equates to “abstains from sex” or “hates sex”, but that isn’t it at all. Asexual really just refers to the experience of feeling sexual attraction (or lack of it). Asexuals range widely from entirely nonsexual or sex repulsed to those who actually enjoy sex. There is a variety of subgroups in the asexual spectrum, which include romantics and non-romantics, different kinds of situational attraction, and more.
So, if you happen to be asexual, know someone who is, or just want to learn more about it, please consider joining my book group! Our January pick is “Every Heart a Doorway” by Seanan McGuire, the first in an exciting fantasy series!
