What Asexuality Reveals About Desire, Society, and the Meaning of Sex
Many people consider the existence of asexuality an interesting piece of trivia: it's a lesser-known sexual orientation, some people identify as asexual, and they should be accepted. Next. After all, if you're not asexual, what more is there to learn?
Plenty, because in every place that sexuality touches society, asexuality does too, and the issues that asexuals struggle with-confusion around sexual activity, the intersection of sexuality and identity, navigating different needs in relationships-are the same ones that people of every orientation are likely to confront. The questions may be near universal, but the answers look different from the asexual, or ace, perspective.
Through reportage, cultural criticism, and memoir, Ace investigates the "A" of LQBTQIA, offering valuable frameworks for understanding human connection and inviting everyone to rethink pleasure and intimacy.
