Asexuals Unite!

They want asexuality classified as a sexual orientation. Which, in fairness, I guess it is.

1% of the population is asexual? And I keep dating them all. What are the odds.

I believe that 1% figure (at least as regards men) like I believe the 1-in-10 gay figure.

Question: If you had no sex drive, would you be more or less productive?

This is a tougher question than at first I thought.

On one hand, with no sex drive, no trolling for porn, no wasting time and money in clubs hoping to find someone drunk enough to sleep with you.

On the other hand, with no sex drive: No compelling reason to work much at all. As David Chappelle said, if a guy could get laid in a refrigerator box, all men would be homeless. Take away the sex drive and the associated competitive mate-attracting behaviors, and one could be pretty happy in a hovel with a kickass TV and a Wii.

Then again: Jeeze Louise. Even without the sex drive you still have the urge to date?

To date? Dating is the worst part of sex.

Another option, of course, is for those who are asexual to form relationships with each other. Jay said that there is an emerging asexual dating scene, and some online dating services geared toward asexuals have appeared.

What is an asexual relationship like? Jay likened it to an intimate partnering of "very, very close best friends."

That's like ordering chili when you hate chili just because you have some urge to possess a fresh new plastic spork.

I'm not being misogynist when I say that men and women are basically alien species living together on the same planet, united only by our matching genitals.

Minus sex, what on earth do we have in common? I mean, both men and women find Law & Order passable if not thrilling entertainment, but you can't build a life on just that.
