Asexuals Come Out Of The Closet

Hollywood is planning a sequel to Brokeback Mountain, in which two friends, both ashamed of their lack of a sex drive or attraction to either sex, take yearly "fishing expeditions" together in which they, well, fish.

Sort of interesting:

Keith Walker of Texas was married for four years, but said he had sex only a handful of times. "I really had no real interest or desire for sex. It was certainly nothing that I would ever think to do."

Nancy Mulligan, a divorcee from Washington state, said her seven-year marriage was never consummated. "We did other things. We'd watch out for each other. We were affectionate with each other," she said.

Victoria Glancy and Karl Hodgetts are preparing for that sort of marriage with their summer wedding. They're prepared to live happily but sexlessly ever after.

"I don't really see any difference between our relationship and other people's relationships, except you know, we don't have sex," Glancy said.

Who are these people? From different ages and walks of life, they share one thing in common β€” not low libido β€” no libido. They call themselves "asexual" and they proclaim that they are not attracted to men or women.

David Jay said his lack of libido is nothing new. He said he's never experienced attraction β€” to either sex. "I realized that I was asexual because when I was young, all of my friends started being attracted to people, and I had no idea what they were talking about," he said.

Do what I did -- pretend. Get with the program, dude.

It was the same way for Nancy Mulligan, who felt isolated for years. "I thought I was the only one in the world. I had just kind of settled into the rut that I was different and decided to do the best I could with it," she said.

But now asexuals are building a community through a Web site β€” asexuality.org. It has chat rooms, sells T-shirts and claims it has 6,000-plus members worldwide.

I actually condemn these people on moral grounds. If they don't have a sex drive, none of them has any damn excuse for not being a multimillionaire. What the hell are they doing with their free time, for crying out loud?

Think about it: How much wealthier would you be with all that extra free time -- without thinking about sex, doing things likely to help you get sex (going to the gym, keeping up with fashion, bathing, washing your junk), and engaging in sex-substitutes like nightly porno hunts?

I don't condemn these people for not having sex drives. I condemn them for being slothful.

Thanks to Allah.
