EPS 19: Ace-Aro Special 2: So Many Labels and No Sticker Maker

Our lovely panel from last week return to talk to us about something called the Split Attraction Model (also called the SAM), a model of talking about attraction developed by asexual people. This is to provide language for the pieces of attraction often not thought of. We deep dive into the definitions of all these points, as well as how these definitions are relevant to our host and panel.
