The Kama Sutra of Celibacy is a book that at first glance looks like it will contain nothing for Asexuals. Even after the reader looks at some of the contents, the reader may still wonder how the book could benefit Asexuals in any way.
The Kama Sutra of Celibacy would not have come to the attention of Asexual News had not one of the promoters of the book decided to leave a comment about the book on an article about Glee’s Sexy Episode. It took a few minutes to determine that the page was doing nothing more than trying to sell a book. It is a shame as well. If it were a website, it did have a few sections that Asexuals, particularly Romantic Asexuals, would find interesting. The slant would not deal with them of course, the author may or may not take Asexuality into account. It seems that the individual or program who posted the comment just picked on the use of the word celibacy in the article on Glee's Sexy episode.
Any one who has read a single article covering the basics of Asexuality will find out that Asexuality and celibacy are not the same thing. No Asexual needs 101 tips to be successfully celibate, although they may need tips on ways to express intimacy without engaging in the oldest dance.
The Kama Sutra of celibacy does not look like it is dedicated to a religious audience, but an audience who seeks to avoid physical relations outside of marriage. As such, it may be a fascinating read, but it will not see many sales among the Asexual community.
(Note: If the author of the book would like to contact us through official channels and rebut this point, she simply needs to use the contact us page).
Tantra can be very useful for asexuals looking for ways to be intimate without sexuality, in terms of breathing together, meditation together, massage, setting the scene for a romantic evening, and so on....
Check out the links on our website for Tantra (in the search section) and be very welcome....
Before suggesting we do not judge the book, I'm going to invite you to learn more about Asexuals to understand why this may not be the best place to advertise your work.
I think you have many of us pegged as pursuing this for religious reasons rather than something that is for us, simply the way we are. If you'd perused AVEN's Wiki you would have quickly found out that it's an orientation, not a choice.
I do not wish your book ill, but you came here with misconceptions about what Asexuality is and had you actually known a bit more, you would not have commented about your book or attracted the attention of any writers. There is a reason your original comment was removed. Please review the site's policies about spam and advertising.
