Organization Spotlight: Asexual Visibility and Education Network

"The Asexual Visibility and Education Network (AVEN) was founded in 2001 with two distinct goals: creating public acceptance and discussion of asexuality and facilitating the growth of an asexual community. Since that time we have grown to host the world’s largest asexual community, serving as an informational resource for people who are asexual and questioning, their friends and families, academic researchers and the press. AVEN members throughout the world regularly engage in visibility projects, included but not limited to distributing informational pamphlets, leading workshops, arranging local meetups and speaking to interested press. The AVEN community centers around the web forum, which provides a safe space for asexual and questioning people and their partners, friends and families to discuss their experiences."

Great Video! America is such a strange puppy. If your personal choice is not to have sexual relations then it's prolly due to a trauma, possibly an unhealthy environment that you grew up in.

If you love sex a lot & have many partners you've still got a problem and god forbid you just might like to sometimes get paid for it - trauma childhood abuse or you're just plain a whore.

America is really screwed up with a sense of dictatorship when it goes our sex lives.

For Petes Sakes therapist live and let live!

Kudos to AVEN!!!

I agree Miss Vicki people are too concerned with other peoples lives. There are many asexuals who had great childhoods though and didn't have trauma but are just not sexual creatures. I believe it is purely biological and not psychological. After all there are asexual animals too! =)
