Belledame over at Fetch Me My Axe is hosting the next Carnival of Feminist Sexual Freedom and Autonomy.
Some thematic suggestions (suggestions only) for this edition:
-Halloween: “Trick or treat,” or “come as you aren’t.” Costume, role-play, illusion, trickery, sugar: what roles do any of these play in sexuality? Make it personal or political or both.
-Day of the Dead: The veils are thin this time of year. Connections between sex and spirituality, and/or sex and the transcendent, if you prefer. (they call it “the little death” for a reason). Dark or light or anywhere in between.
-Election season in the U.S. Specific electoral battles such as Prop K in San Francisco, or more broad-ranging political pieces.
Also particularly interested in pieces exploring intersectionality with sexuality, including but not limited to: being of color, being queer, being genderqueer, having a trans body, having a disability, class issues, cultural issues, religion. Again, both personal and political.
Also, too, U.S. election notwithstanding, looking for pieces from folks outside the U.S. and particularly outside other Anglophone countries as well (U.K., Canada, Australia, New Zealand).
Feel free to nominate your own work or someone else’s. Multiple submissions are fine.
The old deadline was today; the new deadline is October 30; the carnival goes up on the 31st. She welcomes your contributions, and looks forward to seeing you all at her place on Halloween.
