#51 Lip Readings: The Invisible Orientation (Aces and Queens)

Practical problems prevented the promised previous presentation of this podcast, but here it is at last!

Les Femmes du Lèvre are once more Les Femmes du Livre as Friday Night Lip Readings continues.

Tonight, your hosts take a long-awaited look at The Invisible Orientation: An Introduction to Asexuality by Julie Sondra Decker, especially the chapter 'A Message for Non-Asexual People'. 

'What if you weren’t sexually attracted to anyone?'

In the studio tonight with their reading glasses on are experienced asexual Daria, and willing-to-learn allosexuals Nicky and Nida.

#49 Online Discourse (Let’s Get Digital)

Izzy and Daria with more about life across the digital frontier. After all, there's more than just Facebook and Twitter. What are some good spots to see and be seen online? Is it really reclusive to spend so much time on the Internet now that you can carry it around with you and your friends?

#48 Lesbians and Cats (The Feminine and the Feline)


Why do so many lesbians seem to like cats so much? Do the cats like the lesbians in return? Can cats be queer? Do they have gender identities? Politics? Do they need to be environmentally aware when they are of course the ruler of all they survey?
All this and more when Izzy, Nida and Daria join us to have some fun and talk about their furry feline four-legged friends.
