Two traits I originally imagined for Ariane, being a science geek and a secret supermodel, never came to fruition, so I gave those traits to Rachel.
I also got a comment once from a vegetarian player of Date Ariane, wondering why she was such a big meat eater, the comment inspired me to make Rachel a vegetarian.
So I wrote two sex scenes with Rachel involving this quirk.
I later found out in my research on sexual fetishes, that there are people that fantasize about sex not involving themselves, and it is called autochorissexuality, and it is a sub category of asexuality.
Asexuals are not sexually attracted to anyone, but still may have a sex drive that can be triggered with the right stimulus.
That is a pretty good description of Rachel’s quirk. Part of the reason I needed to reveal this fact in this story is because asexual representation is rare in the media.
It is estimated that Asexuals represent somewhere between 1% to 2% of the population, which makes them a pretty small minority.
GLAAD points out that there are literally only 2 asexuals on TV.
And if Akili can get approval, it remains to be seen whether clinicians and insurers will embrace its product.
The video game has not been tested head-to-head against ADHD medications or psychotherapy to see if it’s equally effective.
The problem is that a perfect stranger they meet at a sex club should not be breaking the news, even though it makes sense that there would be a lot of sex experts at a sex club.
The fix I came up with is 1.) for the three branches at the sex club to be one long branch, and 2.) to have Lydia make the reveal.
Akili’s video game, which is played on a tablet, sends players down a molten lava river and through an icy winter wonderland, rewarding them with stars and points as they complete tasks.
