#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.

#6 The Asexuality Spectrum (A is A)

We all know how much queer people love rainbows, but the spectrum we'll be looking at tonight is the asexuality spectrum. Kat brings the world of the 'Grey A' to Jess, Kaley and 'embedded asexpert' Daria on tonight's Friday Night Lip Service.

Don't forget that next week we'll be having a Book Club episode, so you've still got some time to read The Essential Dykes to Watch Out For by Alison Bechdel if you want to send in your thoughts or join the discussion.
