Writer, producer, and co-star Mak graciously wrote her personal story for Cold Tea Collective to give insight to viewers about this unique experience. Check out the short film below and about her former relationship and how she used it as inspiration for her first film.
Chris not his real name and I slept together on the first date. The one who would finally awaken the sexual attraction that everyone else seemed to experience. Or two. I forget.
He was a workaholic, so he was often busy, or too tired. It bewildered me — I was used to being the one saying no. I started wearing more dresses, more make-up.10 Early Signs You're ASEXUAL - Mental Health
Back in his university days, he mentioned there was an asexual guest lecturer that he could relate with. Or maybe he just had a low libido. After all, he did like me enough to want to be with me. We cuddled a lot. Worked side by side on our laptops, legs intertwined.
One morning, rather than checking our phones and making oatmeal with peanut butter and blueberries, our cuddling turned into kisses, which turned into sex. I was overjoyed. Maybe he did feel the way I felt. So, I asked him how he felt about it. Did you enjoy it?
I was confused. I felt like I had taken advantage of my partner without intending to do so.
It was just something I desired. I just really wanted to be with him. But he knew that I also felt a sense of loss, and he told me that I should sleep with other people. I could tell that he was worried that I would regret celibacy, and build resentment over time. We both agreed to open our relationship and go on dates with other people. We assured that we would be completely open and honest about what we did, and with who.
Eventually, I ended up sleeping with someone. He was excited for me. He also stopped kissing me. After I slept with a second person, he told me he felt betrayed, and that he never wanted to see me again. It turned out that although he was chatting with other women online, he never ended up meeting with them. It also turned out that we had missed a bunch of important fundamental steps to transition our monogamous relationship over to a healthy polyamorous relationship. Or how to navigate jealousy. Although I still cherished him as a friend, I understood that I could no longer be his partner.
I was heartbroken.
After releasing the film on March 9, my ex has still yet to see it. He says he feels weird about it. In making the film, I have met a lot more aces. It is an incredible thing to be a part of. Now, my perspective as an artist, is that I have a duty to not only raise awareness of issues, but to share solutions and hope, particularly to audiences who struggle with the issues being presented. I filmed a companion piece with an asexual advocate friend of mine, Justine Munich, which explores the issues of our film through her lens as an asexual woman.
