Blank Spaces

Cass Lennox

Asexual Fairy Tales

Elizabeth Hopkinson and Anna Hopkinson

£8.99

Almost everyone knows the familiar fairy tale ending: the prince marries the princess and they live happily ever after. Or do they?Once upon a time, our ancestors were much more honest and open about the spectrum of human sexuality. Among the fairy tales and myths they told were stories of androgynes, neither male nor female; of women and men who resist sex and marriage for other kinds of love; of chaste romances, miraculous childbirth and bodily transformations.

Asexual Myths & Tales

Elizabeth Hopkinson and Anna Hopkinson

£9.99

Once upon a time, our ancestors told tales of asexuality, symbolic stories that hint at other identities: a princess who grows a beard to escape marriage, a knight who forsakes his wife's bed to become a werewolf, a goddess with detachable parts, a planet where everyone is asexual. Drawn from many times and places, retold and reimagined for the 21st century, Elizabeth Hopkinson's second book of myths and tales brings asexuality out of the closet and gives it the history it has been denied.
