About Asexual Perspectives Book
In broad terms Asexuality is the lack of sexual attraction, but what does this actually mean for those who identify with this sexual orientation? And what do asexuals really think of love, life and sex?
Whilst all asexuals have one thing in common – the lack of sexual attraction towards a specific person, we are all different in our likes, needs, wants and dislikes. This can make fitting into the asexual spectrum and finding a suitable relationship difficult.
Right now, there are a number of myths about asexuality and stereotypes – even within the asexual community, about what asexuals do and do not like, should and should not do, and these need to be addressed and broken through!
If you identify as asexual do you –
Struggle to have a voice in this sexualized world?
Have no one to relate to?
Find it difficult to find others like you?
Feel like everyone is speaking a foreign language where sex is concerned?
Or are you unsure of your identity and sometimes get confused and you want to know what asexuals really think of Love, Life and Sex, and what experiences they have had or are having; and how they manage their relationships? If so, then look no further than this book. In this book you will discover asexuals who feel just like you.
In this book I will reveal my own asexual perspective and personal story as well as perspectives from 46 asexuals around the globe; dispelling myths and breaking stereotypes; sharing their own personal journey to help you in yours and with a surprising over-riding message!

Asexual Perspectives Book Reviews
An essential guide to understanding the great diversity in the asexual community. 47 asexuals covering a representative cross-section of gender, age, and nationality, answer a detailed set of questions about their personal experiences and views. The author also answers the same questions herself and expands on her background. A very helpful guide for anyone wanting to understand the psychology of asexuality and to know where they fit into the asexual spectrum, and very reassuring to the reader to know that many people have had the same experiences as them.

Before I discovered asexuality was a thing, I thought I was alone and broken. This book gives the views and perspectives of 47 asexual people from across the spectrum, not just some textbook explanation, but a whole range of views that show you the diversity of the asexual spectrum. It has really opened my eyes, and shown me that I am valid and that maybe one day I will find an asexual partner.

This is a great explanation of asexuality. As an ace myself I would recommend it to my friends and family in an effort to understand our orientation more. I enjoyed reading Sandra’s story as well as all the other stories in the book. Really inspiring, thanks Sandra xxx

Sandra’s book is absolutely brilliant for people who are Asexual or even for their friends and family if they want to understand more about what it means and the different sexualities and romantic attractions that can come under the umbrella term of ‘A Spec’. Sandra must have spend a lot of time researching and finding people who identify differently but on the spec. The fact that she has found people of different nationalities and ethnecities gives the book a well rounded and global feel. Definitely recommend it

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommend this It’s totally awesome

Highly recommend this
It’s totally awesome. It’s great to read stories of other aces, the good and the bad, and to know that whether their experiences are similar to yours or vastly different, you’re not alone in this journey of self discovery & acceptance we are all on. Away from the internet & meetup groups, you can often forget that there are others out there in RL.
Also, though the author claims the book is not really for non-aces who don’t really know what asexuality is like most books on asexuality, I beg to differ. Although it doesn’t really have the facts/explainations on just what asexuallity <i>et al</i> is, I think this book is just as important for those people who are wondering if this ‘real’, a ‘fad’, etc. The book gives the stories & perspectives of aces and the struggles we go through, in the person’s own words. Hopefully this insight could let allos get a glimse of the world we live in and let them see our point of view and gain some understanding.
5.0 out of 5 stars it’s so nice to not only see a well written book written …

I have not finished this book yet, but so far, I have found it so interesting and I can’t put the book down. As an Asexual, it’s so nice to not only see a well written book written about this orientation, but reading real life stories of people like me makes me feel good, because I know I am not alone and there are people who experience the same things I do. No one is the same, but we can all relate one way or another. I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who is interested in this topic, overall, it’s a good read! Thank you so much for writing this and a big thank you to everyone who shared their story! Truly inspirational!

For something that I knew nothing about, this book was an upfront and personal invitation to dialogue with the asexuality community. I’m appreciative to the author for her dedication to give voice and visibility to a sexual orientation that currently has little in modern society and media. It’s amazing how different the people in this book are and how different their stories are. I thank them for their bravery and willingness to share their lives.
If you or someone else would like a harmless, cheap, enlightening, insightful, serious, and even entertaining read, then this is your next book.
