EvilNob: I need a friend like him. As an asexual woman, no matter how oft I tell that I’m not into relationships, especially sexua1 ones, the only male response is “lol you should just try it with me and you will be cured”. I’m tired of it. It’s not a sickness that is curable by seX. I just want to have friends.

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.
