Question of the month:

"My friend came out to me as asexual. What does that mean?"

First, yay for your friend coming out to you! And second, like all identities, asexuality may be defined 100 different ways to 100 different people. But, to try to come up with a definition we checked The Asexuality Visibility and Education Network (AVEN). They define an asexual person as "someone who does not experience sexual attraction."

This is different from celibacy because celibate people often experience sexual attraction, they just choose not to act on it. For an asexual person, asexuality is their sexual orientation. Asexual people come in all ages, genders, and races.

Colin leads us on a guided meditation through a peaceful and relaxing forest. In these uncertain times, self-care and relaxation are very important to our physical and mental well-being.
