Hi AVEN team!
I am a journalist working on a guidebook to nontraditional relationships called Sex From Scratch. I am interviewing a diverse array of individuals about what works in their relationships, what doesn’t, and what they’ve learned along the way. Of course, I would like to include the perspectives of people who identify as asexual in the book. I live in Portland, Oregon, but am going to be in New York and Boston during the next two weeks.
Here’s the info on the interviews:
These are anonymous, very conversational interviews. I am interested in the logistics of dating without sex—what issues do you deal with? How do you meet and talk with partners? What have you learned the heard way? Interviews are typically 30 minutes to an hour and I’d be happy to buy you coffee or tea to talk in person, or if you’d rather, we can just Skype. The book is a non-academic work aiming to bring a how-to on little-discussed relationships into mainstream conversation. Here’s my website, where I’ve posted a couple interviews I’ve done with non-anonymous people and some other interesting info: www.sexfromscratch.tumblr.com
I’ll be in NYC from May 5th through 17th and Boston from the 19th through 22nd, if you’d like to help share what you’ve learned about dating without sex, please email me and we’ll set up a time and place to talk.
Thanks! Let me know if you can post that or if it’s not right for your forum.
