Description

🤔 Is it okay to not want sex? ❤️‍🔥 

 
💬 “I just thought I was a broken gay guy for 20 years.” 💬 

When Cody Daigle-Orians first posted a video 📹 on TikTok, outing 📣 himself as asexual, he immediately received hundreds of comments from young ace (asexual) people saying “Wow, I didn't know ace adults existed!” 🙏🏽 He was 42 back then.  

In our culture, love and sex are dominant themes everywhere you look – in movies, books, advertisements, conversations with friends, expectations imposed by the family… 👩‍❤️‍👩

Many of us, including folks in the diversity-aware queer community, have never called into question 🤔 whether the need for physical and romantic intimacy actually applied to everyone.

It does not.

In this episode, actor and playwright Cody shares his journey of self-discovery, from identifying as a gay man with a “problem” 😒 to living life as a confident, out-and-authentic homoromantic ace person. 😃

Ace, homoromantic… say whaaaat? 😵 If your head is spinning from all the unfamiliar terms: No worries, we’ll explain all of them and more in the episode. Which is Cody’s specialty. 👨‍🏫

Through his social-media-based educational project called “Ace Dad Advice”, Cody is busy busting myths 🤜 and giving an authentic voice to the ace community. He particularly aims at supporting young people questioning their sexual and romantic needs and letting them know: You are not broken, your experience is valid as it is. 🌈

👉 Cody’s first book, “I AM ACE: ADVICE ON LIVING YOUR BEST ACE LIFE”, will come out in January 2023. 📖  
 

Terms explained in the episode: 

  • ace (asexual) 
  • allosexual and alloromantic 
  • aro(mantic) 
  • greysexual and greyromantic 
  • demisexual and demiromantic 

… listen to the episode for Cody’s explanations (minutes 21 – 27)
