It is probably the last place that those seeking a celibate relationship would consider looking.
However, an online dating agency has been launched for those seeking intimacy without intercourse.
Platonicpartners.co.uk says that it will help the silent minority of adults seeking "celibate, platonic, non-physical or partly physical relationships" and help them to find a mate.
The site was founded by Susie King, a former life coach, who was moved to set up the forum after a close friend attempted suicide because of his sexual impotence. He did not want a future without a loving relationship.
Hachi-machi. This asexual trend is really gaining ground. We did a Dish on this on September 14th and read an old article in Esquire on it. And we couldn’t help but wonder why the world is turning into Morrissey. The article above mentions impotence as a reason for joining an asexual network or dating site. That makes some sense. Though modern medicine (mostly focused on combating impotency, as far as we can tell) has done a reasonably good job of curing most forms of impotence. So, now there are places people can go if they want companionship and don’t want to ‘do the deed’ or just can’t.
Note: As far as we can tell Susie King from Plantonicpartners.co.uk is not the same advise-giving Susan King from Tango.
