Writing Asexuals in Sex Scenes

 I was fascinated by this early discussion on asexual characters in sex scenes.  It happens.  I write neuter characters fairly often, along with an extremely wide range of other sex/gender/orientation options.  Sometimes a mutually agreeable arrangement is possible.  Other times it turns into a horribly awkward disaster.  But if you're a writer, this is one of those things that absolutely must be handled with care, because it's a delicate topic at best and easy to botch.  Happily the discussion is aimed at producing a how-to post later.  Yay!
