Oh. Yes. Finally the story I've been waiting and waiting for -- a fic that explores a relationship between Sheldon and Penny where Sheldon is definitely asexual. Don't get me wrong. I love stories where he's a sexual person, but it's about time someone fully mined what could happen if he wasn't.

So they’d had sex. It wasn’t bad. He seemed to know what to do all right, and she enjoyed herself, even if she didn’t come.

“That was good,” she told him, rubbing his shoulder.

“I’m glad you enjoyed it,” he replied, smiling in a non-creepy way. Penny thought he had a really cute smile, although he probably wouldn’t have appreciated the compliment.

“Did you like it?” she asked, tilting her head and grinning back.

“Not particularly, but my only aim was to give you pleasure.”

Penny blinked, and her smile melted away, her lips turning down at the corners. “What do you mean, you didn’t like it?”

Sheldon sighed. “Penny, not all of us are as obsessed with the act of coitus as you are. I have never felt the urge to engage in sexual intercourse.”

I'm not going to lie. This fic broke my heart a little, but it was so well-written, so true to the characters we know from the show, that I almost didn't mind.

If you enjoy this story, please take a minute to leave a comment for the writer. Comments = happy writers. Happy writers = more fic for us to read.
