Last week, I published some previously unpublished analysis of asexual community survey data. One new finding: About half of the people who said they were at least somewhat repulsed also said they would be willing to compromise and have sex at least on occasion in a relationship.
If true, there are at least two different narratives we can use to “explain” the trend. (1) People are complicated, so why should we expect them to fit into our boxes? (2) Repulsed asexuals are so affected by compulsory sexuality that they feel they must “compromise”. I’m not sure which to believe. (Actually, there’s a third narrative: the survey wording is biased.)
Why do you think there are so many repulsed asexuals who are willing to have sex?
