So, I've decided to change the name of my blog. I'm generally not all that good at coming up with names, and when I decided to start a blog about asexuality, of course, I needed to think of one. To illustrate how utterly bad I am at this, I'll confess, with some embarrassment, the first name I had made up: "Asexuality and Stuff." (Ever wonder why my url is asexystuff.blogspot.com? Now you know.) For reasons now beyond even my own comprehension, I really liked the name, probably because, for reasons equally inexplicable, I have long had a peculiar affinity to the word "stuff," and this more or less did sum up, in a way, the topic I would be writing about. After I managed to convince myself to change the name, the best I could come up with was "Musings on an Asexy Theme."
But now I don't really like that name anymore, so I've decided to change it to "Asexual Explorations." I'm not entirely sure why I like the name, but I do. It seems to fit the subject of the blog since I am attempting to explore themes related to asexuality and give voice to my own story and my own thoughts and feelings. My new title reminds me of a college algebra book that I sort of but not really taught from (we had a text book that we ignored and there was a course packed that we used instead.) Anyway, the book was called Explorations in College Algebra , and on the cover it had a picture of one of the authors scuba diving amidst beautiful underwater scenery (which I could never figure out how it was related to anything I taught in the class,) but it suggesting that the topic was wondrous, exciting, and fascinating. I don't think any of my students were fooled. Likewise I want to suggest that my blog is bold, daring, and opens up a whole new perspective on the world, when in reality I'm writing about the oh-so-titillating subject of not having sex.
