Rambles - A Retreat Letter


I deliver a retreat letter in video for my friend Gelli. This is probably the shortest Fatman Forever episode ever.

I Don't Call It "Asexual"

Why yes, I've finally found out about something that's been bugging me for quite a long time now. I used to call it "really conservative"

It turns out, after a lot of research and reflection, I can definitely say I'm asexual. For those who are unaware or would like a refresher, "asexual" is defined by the Asexual Visibility and Education Network (AVEN) as "a person who does not experience sexual attraction". That actually explains a lot about me.

Now, for all the girls I've pursued in UST - the Sociology Girl, Bitchly from tourism, and other girls not important to mention - never once have I actually thought of having sex with any of them. It's not that they were "un-bang-able"; it's just that I'm honestly not interested in doing that casually or at all and it really doesn't interest me when people brag about having sex with someone. Okay, dingus, you put your penis in a girl's vagina. Now you can die happy. I don't know why people make a big deal about other people who are still virgins. It's like casual sex is considered an Xbox 360 achievement.

If I like you, I like you for your looks and your personality. I don't want to bang you. I'll never want to bang you - please don't take that as an insult. I think "bang" and "score" is degrading because it's like having sex with a girl is basically winning a contest with little to no meaning.

I'm not one of those guys. As unlikely as it sounds, I actually don't look at porn. I think porn is absolutely disgusting and degrading. I have no interest in porn or in sex. I'm more of a romantic, as stupid as it seems. I mean, porn disgusts me, to be honest. I know I joke about being a pervert and going to a sex store or buying Barney Stinson's Playbook but really, sex doesn't interest me at all and porn really disgusts me. I don't know why people pay for something really disgusting. I've blocked people that I was following on Tumblr because they thought it would be funny to post animated GIFs of porn.

Some asexual people do actually engage in sexual activity despite lacking a desire for sex or sexual attraction for a lot of reasons like pleasing their partners or having children. So it's like, if a hot girl offers me cake or free sex, I'd rather have the cake. If my wife wants to be satisfied and she promises me cake, I'll have sex with her. Consider me a hungry conservative.

I don't really like to call it "asexual" or "conservative". I like to call it "Looking past the superficial and actually moving on with life."

I am looking past the superficial and actually moving on with life.
