  1. Here’s a post I wrote a few months ago but I don’t think I’ve shared it here- I reviewed the book “Come As You Are” from an asexual perspective. https://tellmewhytheworldisweird.blogspot.com/2022/02/come-as-you-are-is-helpful-i-guess-but.html

    Overall I would say this book is not ace-friendly. Mostly when I was reading it, I was just very confused about what problem it’s even trying to solve. It’s basically about helping women have sex more- but it never explains why? Like if some women have low sexual desire and don’t want to have sex, I don’t understand why this is a problem? Or I guess maybe they have low sexual desire but they do want to have sex? But then, can’t they just have sex anyway, without the sexual desire/ sex drive? (Which is what I do…) I don’t know, I feel I am too asexual to figure out what this book is talking about.
