He gave an answer “I am much happier with it than I thought I would be, because it is pretty personal things. I’m talking about my sexuality in a very public way, and this film shoved a really deep and personal moments about my relationships, on a special level that no other press has managed to reach before. It’s complicated a lot, but the way our society talking about intimacy is really sexualized, so this movie showed to us a great example of intimacy in my life that is not at all sexual things.

I also think, that is a very visibility tool for other people who was interested of asexuality. My community is trying to talking about things that are wrapped up in sex”. He also has his own podcast, which titled “Love from the Asexual Underground”. Jay is in the relationship with his girlfriend, who is asexual too. Along with her soul mate he wants to adopt a child.
