Being an Asexual Sexologist is going to be really exhausting with professors like these…

Cool thing I learned a little about today at Sex School: Conceptualizing “sexual interest,” “sexual desire,” and “sexual capacity” as three independent factors when thinking about sexuality.

Frustrating thing: When my professor perpetuated a misconception by coming right out and saying “if you masturbate then you aren’t really asexual.” Read my rant about it here (feel free to comment, I welcome the chance to talk about it since none of my classmates are Ace and didn’t really seem to understand why I was so peeved).

Considering that this is far from the only example of A-Ignorance I’ve encounter at school I expect “Sex School” posts to become a regular addition to the site, though hopefully they won’t all be rants!

  1. And they actually TEACH you this at ‘sex school’?! Oh dear.

    I can’t see how there’s really any excuse for non-homophobic people who know what an orientation is to mess up this badly.
