Carnival of Aces Round-Up: Asexuality Before AVEN

Thanks to everyone who participated in the September Carnival of Aces.  This month’s theme was “Asexuality Before AVEN”.  Here is the round-up of submissions:

Finally, because the round-up is a little short this month, I want to re-share an article Siggy linked recently over at The Asexual Agenda“Independence from the Sexual Revolution” by Dana Densmore was published in 1973.  Despite being written years before the creation of AVEN, the article offers a powerful criticism of erotonormativity and the way it oppresses women in particular.  Some of its content feels a bit dated, but a lot of it is still very relevant.  If you haven’t read it yet, please do!

The October Carnival is being hosted by Sketches and is about “Asexuality and Poetry”.  Go take a look!
