As a sex-repulsed ace, am I the only one who always gets sad or pessimistic whenever shows use not having sex as the main reason for divorce between two characters. Like I know you can have a relationship without sex but still it always makes me unhappy.
Hi friend! I am also a sex-repulsed ace, and I totally understand. The media has a very firm grip on society, and by setting this standard it forces relationships into this unrealistic expectation of being sexually driven and active at all times. The way I handle it is I just remind myself that it’s just a show/play/etc. and that whoever I marry will know, understand, and respect the fact that I’m ace sex-repulsed. If a marriage ends in divorce because of sex, there were deeper problems lying beneath the surface, like communication and understanding. Your feelings of this portrayal are completely valid.
