Asexual Clubs

Postby Karl » Fri Mar 13, 2009 2:54 pm

Thought it might be an idea to have a thread where we can post news and sightings of real-life asexual clubs and groups, like this one:

Asexual Club at Smith College - Northampton, MA

Ha ha, awesome! I've been wondering how they were coming along with that. Now I just need to get that Western Mass meetup organized like I've been telling people, heh.

Heh, I read the title and thought it would be like a UV lights, loud music type of club.

That'd be cool.

Could you a get a bunch of asexuals to go to that kind of club? A good number don't drink. I drink, but not much, and I hate loud sounds. So clubs aren't really my thing.

But when I saw the title, that's the first thing I thought of as well.

Dance Clubs really aren't my kind of scene, either. Too many people, too much noise. I like my personal space and like to be able to hear what the people I'm with are saying.

I only really go to that kind of place now and then, if I'm dragged there by a group. Then I spend the next three days replying to everything anyone says to me with "WHAT? I CAN'T HEAR YOU. SPEAK UP" Much prefer bars where there's some music but not so that you can't hear yourself think.

I suppose to each there own but I've never particularly associated "asexual" with "not drinking".

Anyway when I said it was cool I was thinking more about the concept rather than the venue itself. Although a kind of asexual members-only bar would be good. Something like the original gentlemen's clubs, except with less blackballing.

That's awesome, I'm surprised that Smith has enough people to do that. I'm impressed.

I do like dance clubs sometimes, but I usually don't approve of the music ;)
