    D. Salinger, Holden Caulfield epitomizes asexuality between his refusal to participate in sexual behavior and his lack of desire for it. He doesn’t look for it as a trait in a relationship, nor does he want to partake in it when faced by sexual situations. Asexuality is still extremely relevant today, as the amount of people who identify as asexual is constantly growing while more and more people find out about it. Awareness that this is a real and valid orientation must be spread in order to…

    far the most relevant topic to my own experiences, is around asexuality. Given my fairly low sex drive, and emphasis on other aspects of relationships (such as shared activities, and companionship), I can identify with some aspects of the asexual community. Besides my personal experiences, however, I commend the authors for bringing to light, and discussing key issues on this important topic. By far the most relevant topic to me that chapter 6 discusses, revolves around asexuality. Asexuality…

    Sexy Soap, Spirits, and Salad Sex sells! This is a distasteful but accurate statement. There is a great deal of sexuality in the media today that cannot be avoided. There are many times when I am casually scrolling though twitter or flipping through channels and an ad pops up that is extremely sexual. Businesses have found a way to make their product more desirable through this type of portrayal, and they are not going to change that anytime soon. One of the articles that I came across is…

    The repetition that motivated my investigation of the scene is Laila’s apparent need to prove her sexuality as something that exists although she has disability. I was drawn to this scene specifically because it encapsulates both her need for validation through able-bodied male approval and her yearning to assimilate with able-bodied society, or what she perceives as “normalcy”. In Margarita with a Straw, Laila’s apparent need to prove her sexuality “despite” her disability might reveal that…

    What is normal? Is there even such a thing? People define normal as those like themselves, gender and sexually “correct” to their biological preferences; although, that is far from correct. Since the beginning of time, there have been so many revelations to who one is, or can be. There have been those who come out sexually as: gay (males who like those of the same gender), lesbian (females who like those of the same gender), asexual (those who are not sexually attracted to either sex), bisexual…

    we discussed three umbrella sexualities: homosexuality, bisexuality, and asexuality and learned about the different identities within each. A homosexual is someone who feels attracted to, desires and/or wants to practice with someone of the same sex and/or gender. This term was coined in the 1920s, when a writer accidentally switched the two original words homosexul and hereosexul and added an extra letter to each. Today there are numerous labels within homosexuality to better define the way…
