About Smrf

Smrf is a grayromantic demisexual who has a B.A. in anthropology. Basically she runs around the country and digs holes for a living. In her off time she blogs about asexuality-related issues at her blog kinkyasexuals (which exists on both Tumblr and WordPress), and also does workshops at conventions about Asexuals in BDSM.
