The most popular venue of antisexuals is the (Antisexual Stronghold) website founded by Yuri Nesterenko.[15] He has been widely recognized as the leading antisexual activist since he launched a FidoNet-based antisexual community in 1995.[15][16][17][18][19][20][21] The community claims to have created the International Antisexual Movement (IAM).[19] While putting forward the slogan "Say No to sex," the spokesmen of the IAM endeavor to people to understand no sexual urges to be so violent that they may not be deterred through mental reason, or else transformed through abstinence. The IAM aims to demonstrate what it finds to be unsound about this opinion, that some should say they be constrained to sexual drive; and on the other side many for lack of knowledge of themselves follow sexual needs as the sayings or decrees of reason. In contrast to this old-fashioned sexist stereotype, many members of the IAM say they have successfully overcome the desire for sex.[19]
