The Asexuality Handbook
Thank you for taking the time to visit The Asexuality Handbook. My aim with this site is to provide easy access to information and advice about asexuality that is understandable, deep, and well referenced.
Asexuality is a sexual orientation where a person doesn't experience sexual attraction towards anyone. It's similar to how a heterosexual person does not experience sexual attraction to their own gender, but applied to everyone. Asexuality is also an umbrella term for people that fall between asexuality and other orientations.
For introductory overviews of asexuality please see What is asexuality? and The a-spectra. You can also explore further topics in the list below or in the menu bar. I hope that together these resources will help shed some much-needed light on an orientation that has stayed in the dark for far too long.
