Asexual people aren't interested in sex. It should be a pretty simple concept to understand--in theory--but my experiences as an asexual in a very sexual world have taught me that it's not so simple a concept after all.

So I'm making a video series to discuss asexuality, and this video is my introductory video explaining what asexuality is as well as a little bit about myself and my experience discovering my asexuality and living with it.

Because other subjects in the alternative sexuality and gender arena get more attention--subjects like gay, lesbian, transgender, intersex, and bisexual issues--I wanted to add my voice to the crowd and claim some ground as an "out" asexual who doesn't mind taking questions from the peanut gallery (as long as they're civil).

Future videos will discuss my "top ten"--the top suggestions people tend to make when I say I'm asexual and they assume the "problem" lies elsewhere. I will address these common issues as well as whatever other questions pop up in the comments box along the way.

Please feel free to check out the top ten article I wrote:

And for more information in general you can check out the Asexuality Visibility and Education Network (AVEN) at . (I'm not affiliated with them, but I have contributed an article to their banks and approve of their general message and mission statement.)
