interesting
30 April 2012 | by (sweden) – See all my reviews

I stumbled upon this by accident, but was instantly intrigued. Not being asexual myself, and not knowing anyone who identifies as such, I hardly knew anything about the subject beforehand, I was mainly looking to better understand what asexuality is about. Surprisingly, I found a lot of the discussion around how we think about non-sexual relationships not just interesting, but also relevant to me personally.

Overall, this documentary is everything it needs to be. It brings up several views on asexuality, and also talks about the general lack of knowledge about what is actually a fairly large group of people (I think the documentary said 1 %). I recommend this to anyone who has even the slightest interest.
