Having started the Instagram and YouTube Channel “Ace Dad Advice,” Daigle-Orians is well-versed in explaining the concepts of asexuality for those who may be unfamiliar or questioning. The book begins with a solid foundation of information about labeling one’s sexuality; this section is presented with a comforting, thoughtful tone that will remind readers how complicated exploring one’s sexuality can be. He divides asexuality into a variety of categories that are meant to educate everyone regardless of their familiarity, and his experience of being married and asexual provides a unique lens through which to view one’s sexuality. The clear definitions, personal experiences, and teaching moments throughout the book are invaluable to people who already identify as asexual, may be questioning, or those who want to be an ally. The best thing the author does is affirm that asexuality is just another human experience, something that anyone will find empowering and uplifting.
VERDICT The message of this book is something to be celebrated and will undoubtedly resonate with those who identify as asexual or know someone who does.
