Didn’t Get That Straightened Out

| Related | September 15, 2014

(I have just told my mother that I am asexual. Both of my parents are relatively non-bigoted, but EXTREMELY straight. They’re the straightest people I know.)

Mom: “How do you know you don’t like sex if you’ve never tried it?”

Me: “Well, how did you know that you didn’t like lesbian sex without trying it?”

(My mother says nothing, but her face says it all.)

Me: “I guess I walked into that one by asking about it, but that was way more information than I ever needed to know about you. Thanks, Mom. I’m glad we had this talk.”

(I later learned that ‘I know virgins who are interested in sex even though they don’t know what it’s like’ is a much better analogy.)
