  • Short Description
Drawing on personal anecdotes and interviews with the ace community, Sarah and Kayla are here to help you unlearn the norms of an allo world, navigate and nurture your relationships, and become more confident in your aspec identity.
An empowering guide to help aspec people become more confident in their identities and understand their relationships, written by the hosts of the #1 podcast on asexuality.

Somehow, over time, we forgot that the rituals behind dating and sex were constructs made up by human beings and eventually, they became hard and fast rules that society imposed on us all.'

True Love. Third Wheels. Dick pics. 'Dying alone'. Who decided this was normal?

Sarah and Kayla invite you to put on your purple aspec glasses - and rethink everything you thought you knew about society, friendship, sex, romance and more.

Drawing on their personal stories, and those of aspec friends all over the world, prepare to explore your microlabels, investigate different models of partnership, delve into the intersection of gender norms and compulsory sexuality and reconsider the meaning of sex - when allosexual attraction is out of the equation.

Spanning the whole range of relationships we have in our lives - to family, friends, lovers, society, our gender, and ourselves, this book asks you to let your imagination roam, and think again what human connection really is.

Sarah and Kayla are the hosts of Sounds Fake But Okay, the #1 podcast on asexuality and aromanticism. Sarah identifies as asexual and aromantic and lives in Los Angeles where she works in TV development. Kayla identifies as demisexual and biromantic and lives in Boston where she works in marketing.

Funny, fresh and painfully real, Sarah and Kayla are the ace friends I always wished I had. - Cameron Espostio, actor, comedian and host of Queery
