I've heard people say that places like AVEN are places people go to hide from their sexuality; they go there to be 'indoctrinated' somehow into not being sexual people, beacuse they're cut off from all other options. As David Jay says - you don't go to AVEN and just stop talking.
Thread like this show just how unrealistic it is. It shows the true spirit of AVEN. Isn't it brilliant for her! :D
