Letters to an Asexual #39 (“We have a right to EXPECT sex unless otherwise disclosed!”)

This is #39 of a series in which I read correspondence between me and people who have questions, comments, or–more often–misconceptions about asexuality.

Here I share someone’s opinion on sex in relationships: namely, that they have a right to expect sex 2 to 3 times a week unless otherwise agreed. If asexual people want to negotiate otherwise, they say, that is fine, but if they do not explicitly tell their partner(s) how little sex they will be getting, this is a violation on par with not paying your bill at a restaurant or refusing to use the toilet in your shared home. Nice!
