    56. I'm Asexual, Not Broken

    56. I'm Asexual, Not Broken

    What if it was okay that you don't want to have sex? In this one, Ev'Yan speaks with Angela Chen (author of Ace) about asexuality and ace liberation. Angela debunks a lot of myths about asexuality and educates us on how nuanced the Ace spectrum is. She talks about the fluidity of desire and how we don’t need to pathologize those who don’t have much of it; the connection between sexual trauma and Aceness; and how asexuality can offer us a flexible, fluid perspective of sexual desire. Ev'Yan also shares very candidly about her experience of realizing that, after all this time denying it, she is on the Ace spectrum.

Great job…

I am not a Puritan, but as a 52 year old who can learn from a young blood, I have to say great job. I cannot have an open conversation with any adult openly about sex, it embarrass me. Even with the man I’ve married for 29 years. I’ve birth 3 children and still have a problem
With the subject. And my husband is the only one I’ve been with. I am guessing that such a beautiful young woman has not experienced menopause, but if you have a source I. The subject?… I would love to hear about it.

WONDERFUL!! ❤️❤️

I just found this podcast and have been listening nonstop! Ev’Yan is really knowledge and her podcast covers so many topics. It just felt like a giant weight of stigma and shame was taken off my shoulders when I started to listen to her.
