About this submission

As Thơ ("tuh") ventures into romance as a panromantic asexual/ace, her boyfriend Dylan pressures her to be both sexual and straight, insisting that sex is love and that he’s worthless without it.

When she begins a new relationship with the more emotionally-detached Leo, she once again finds her asexuality to be an issue for her partner. But this time, Leo sees her asexuality as an obstacle to fulfilling her purpose as a woman.

Questioning whether she's actually who she thinks she is, Thơ is forced to be valued by them or fight for herself.
