Asexual Communities

Because less than 1% of the population identifies as asexual, it can be really hard to find other Aces in the wild.

But that’s okay – you can find them online!

Here are some of the most popular asexual communities:

Asexual Visibility and Education Network (AVEN)
AVEN was the first asexual community and played a vital role in establishing asexuality as a valid sexual orientation.

ACE Week
ACE Week raises awareness, builds community, and creates change around the world through an annual campaign and ongoing online meetups.

Asexual Agenda
Monthly blogging carnival on topics related to asexuality and the lived experiences of Aces.

Trevor Project
The Trevor Project has a name page on the basics of asexuality and a built-in community for younger people.

R/Asexuality
A subreddit dedicated to asexuality.

Ace Plannet
One of many Ace-related Discord servers

Asexuals 30 and Over
One of the dozens of Ace-related Facebook groups.  This one is for people over 30 who have an especially hard time finding other aces.

Especially Interesting Articles about Asexuality

Asexuality is becoming a hotter topic, and many popular media outlets are raising awareness by writing about asexuality.  Here are a few of our favorites:

What it Means to be on the Asexuality Spectrum – Allure

What Does it Mean to be Asexual? – Healthline

Could You Be Asexual? Here’s Everything You Need To Know – Women’s Health

 

Excellent Books on Asexuality

 

There are three fantastic books on Asexuality.

Ace: What Asexuality Reveals About Desire, Society, and the Meaning of Sex by Angela Chen

The Invisible Orientation: An Introduction to Asexuality – by Julie Sondra Decker

 I am Ace – Cody Diagle-Orians

We are especially fond of Angela Chen’s book. She’s a journalist who has written for the Wall Street Journal, Atlantic, Guardian, and other publishers.

Finding an Asexual-Affirming Therapist

Asexuality is a poorly understood sexuality, and many therapists pathologize asexual individuals.  In fact, even LGBTA+-informed and affirming therapists are often misinformed about asexuality.

Check out our guide to Finding an Asexual-Affirming Therapist to learn why it is important to find a therapist who knows about asexuality, what they can help with, screening questions to ask, and more!

If you live in Texas, we may be a good fit!  We provide asexual therapy in-person in our Plano, Texas office or online anywhere in Texas.
