Those of you looking to seduce Clay Aiken should save your energy. The singer tells New York he’s practically a eunuch: “I just don’t have an interest in [relationships]…I just don’t have any desire.” Why are we not surprised?

gay as life
He says “relationship”, not sex.
Jodie Foster used to say, when questioned about the tiny matter of her sexuality, “Don’t trivialize my life.” Ed Koch, once a very popular NY mayor, used to say he had no time for such things, he was married to his work. If I recall my facts correctly, Thomas Edison earned a few hundred patents including moving pictures and the light bulb, and was married more than once and had children out the wazoo. Clay Aiken’s former boyfriend was his stylist from AI days. Clay managed to make the bf a dancer before they split. And of course, there’s Clay’s infamous foray into cyber-dating, carelessly broadcasting his image on a gay dating line, then hooking up.
When people claim to be asexual or have no space available for it in their schedules, don’t you believe it. Unless, of course, they have some sort of medical condition.
God I hope he is asexual
I’m not a fan of Clays, but like others, didn’t allow a sexual life for myself for a long time. Once I was less worried about what others would think or say, more secure in my career and my friends and family and more lonely than I care to remember, I came out. I’m inclined to let him come to it in his own time and his own way. I’m ashamed of the cat calls, “gaykin”s, fisting jokes and sundry bitchiness that passes for camaraderie in the gay community.
I’m with Rikard — based on personal experience, “asexual” is a stepping-stone on the path out of the closet (some closets are so big they accomodate stone paths meandering around gurgling fountains and koi ponds, ya know). Not everyone has the courage to leap right on out. Let the boy be.
I dunno. If he is asexual, there may be an army of him every time he clips his fingernails.
Well, as the Clintons would say, it depends what the meaning of “asexual” is. It means having no particular sexuality. It doesn’t mean not having sex, which is “celibate.” If Clay Aiken is attracted to men- which his past record has proven- he is gay. Of course, to say that would break the hearts of flyover state girls in mall fashions who think Clay will marry them one day… and who, in the meantime, are paying customers for Clay’s concerts and CDs, and so shouldn’t be disillusioned by little facts.
I used to pretend to be naive and shy/uninterested when I was in the closet. It got me through until I was ready to come out.
I’m not saying he is, and I’m really not interested in his music or personal life at all – I’m just saying that what he’s saying sounds a lot like what I used to say…
Please dear god in Heaven – does it really matter?
It matters and he’s boring and not interesting and as talented as a dog shitting. Can we have less of him, please?
you were wrong
he came out..he’s gay! YAY!
