Found via Jezebel today, here is a link* to a new dating site, 2date4love.com. The site’s own description explicitly says,
2date4love℠ is a dating site that enables people who cannot engage in sexual intercourse to meet and experience love, companionship and intimacy at its deepest level.
And this bit posted in the New York Daily News expands on that idea, saying,
The website is also for men and women who can’t have sex because of other injuries or disabilities, or who are simply uninterested in being physical with their partners.
We may swing back around to take a more in-depth analytical look at this later, but until then I thought this might be relevant to some readers’ interests right now. Since it’s a new site, and a little different, I expect to see more written about it through other channels as well. (If you will be reading the links provided on their media page, I suggest in advance avoiding comment sections.) There is a FAQ page but it doesn’t address the kinds of questions we here on this feminist-type blog might be interested in. What I do know is that it was founded by a stage 4 cervical cancer survivor who would otherwise now experience painful sex. Laura Brashier talks a little more about her experience with cancer treatment and her desire for sexual intimacy on the Good Morning America website.
