Re: Poston and Baumle 2005

It was useful to me because I could see that they were taking us absolutely seriously and because they seem to believe that asexuality needs to be researched in more depth. I think they missed the boat when they tried to categorize people who haven't had sex in the past year as asexual, however. I t...

Re: What do you call your relationships?

I refer to Kæth in a variety of ways, but, like School of Fish said, they are all just verbal shortcuts. Examples would be: boyfriend, partner, significant other, one of my best friends, etc, etc. What I call him in my head when I think about him is too complex to translate into words. It includes a...

Re: Why not have sex?

I have often wondered about this topic, and I'm not sure where I stand, either. I don't know exactly what it is about the idea of sex that repels me. I think what I dread the most is not the sex itself , but the thought that it might somehow become expected of me, or - even worse - wanted and expect...

Re: The rest of your identity

I know there are some mountainous areas in some parts of the state, but there would still be no escape from that hellish heat. I also have an absolute horror of tornadoes which borders on a full-blown phobia. I don't care much for electrical storms, either, because I've had several close calls with...

Re: The rest of your identity

Aside from the odd weather, what's to hate about Texas? <-lifelong Texan Well, the weather is a big part of it. I didn't mention it above, but I don't have the ability to sweat normally so high temperatures are very bad for me. That means that I am essentially confined to the house during most of t...

Re: The rest of your identity

I'm an aviculturist, a wildlife artist, a bird taxidermist, a gardener, a part-time rock collector, an avid reader of sci-fi and adult fantasy, and all sorts of other things. I live on 3 acres in a rural area without paved roads or high-speed internet. (yet!) I'm in a committed R elationship with a ...

Re: Sex on TV [...and in books] (Adult Content to be expected!)

I'm not bothered at all by sex in movies or TV as long as it is a logical part of the plot. I admit to being a little bit old-fashioned, insofar as I tend to disapprove of casual/cheap sex being portrayed as a good thing with no bad consequences. I object because I feel that the show is intentionall...

Re: Points of entry

I agree. I have never had a problem getting along with people of any sexual orientation. They are still only people, after all. The vast majority of people are amazingly simple to deal with if you are willing to take the time to learn how to do it. A couple of very well known books contain all of th...

Re: Who are you?

I'm GBRD143, or Greybird, on AVEN. I'm a mod over there but I'm still laying low here.
My avatar over there is a picture of a kagu, and since it is the same basic thing here I decided to use it in my name.

Re: Relationships vs relationships.

Oi .... it's still dark and my coffee hasn't kicked in, but I want to try to clarify what I wrote. *crosses fingers* Wish me luck! I'm gonna need it ... The effects of oxytocin would be one of those subjects that I would REALLY like to have listed in our collection of research. My memory isn't as re...

Re: Relationships vs relationships.

I don't think there is a great deal of difference between the two as far as what is done or the depth of feeling which is shared. To me, the main difference is probably one of mutually understood lifelong commitment. It doesn't have to be marriage and it doesn't have to be entirely exclusive, but if...
