Re: Domain & Hosting Expiration: December 10th

Glad we've found someone. If I can help with monetary support, I would be happy to.

Re: Pre-asexuality views on sex?

I learned about sex at about 8 or 9 from my parents (both of whom worked in medicine) in a very detailed but not weird way. I told them after they had explained it that I did not need to know about it because I would never have sex. My parents laughed and told that story a lot after that. I realized...

Re: Moving House

Yes, field research. I do ethnographic research so I have to be here. I'll be done with research probably this fall but I'm sticking around to write it too.

Re: Moving House

Also just finished moving from NC to rural AR. I miss being close to things but I have to write a dissertation and unfortunately I didn't choose anything in an exciting area. I still need to unpack. Urgh. Procrastinating.

Re: What studies would you want to see?

Can you say what type of data is available in this data set? I'm really interested in the qualitative side of this and wonder if there are open responses or similar data.

Re: Hello

Just wanted to say that when I asked nosos questions at AVEN about his study he provided a lot of good info. I hope those of you reading will participate in the study. It's not painful and hopefully we can learn a lot. Hopefully your survey has had lots of hits already. I hope you'll stay around the...

Re: What studies would you want to see?

If you ever want to bounce around ideas, let me know. I'm glad you're interested in the academic side of things. While I'm interested it's not my real interest in terms of what I want to study.

Re: What studies would you want to see?

I don't think you are recruiting other people. I was just commenting that I'm not interested in this type but I think it's a worthwhile study and didn't want you to think it wasn't a valuable study. 2011 is a long way off, are you working on a graduate degree now? As for not being qualified I wouldn...

Re: What studies would you want to see?

@Pretzelboy - I am qualified to do that type of study but at this moment it's really not in the scope of my interest. I do 'critical' (which is totally a nonsense term so I feel silly using it but it's a word people are familiar with, I use this term to mean anti-oppressive) education research and s...

Re: What studies would you want to see?

I haven't seen a good qualitative/narrative study on asexuality if it exists at all. This would come out of sociology or anthropology. If only I had the time and wasn't in education research. I also don't think there's money out there for this type of study in less you were in a research institute o...

Re: Hi (wondered where everyone went!)

@Karl - I am in Chapel Hill which is about 2 hours from where I think I remember you live now. @Dargon - The one and only (though I'm wondering if I should admit to that since I had some hate pm's on AVEN for asking questions about the research studies :) ). I'm sure I'll be happy here. Thanks for t...

Hi (wondered where everyone went!)

Hi, I'm Amy, 28, currently in NC though moving to the greater Memphis, TN area this summer. I was an AVEN member since 2003 but haven't used it much in the last couple of years like I did when the group was much smaller. Let's see, I'm currently finishing up coursework on my Ph.D. and will be doing ...
