an acronym for the Asexual Visibility and Education Network. It's an excellent resource for those curious about asexuality, complete with its own wiki and forums. For those who suspect or know that their significant other is asexual, they can find sexuals in similar situations offering support on AVEN. For those who identify as asexual, AVEN is a safe place to discuss their orientation and to just have fun with the other forum members.
I posted in the AVEN welcome lounge, and everyone offered me cake!
