What Asexuality Is And Is Not - Ask An Asexual

October 22, 2018

What Asexuality Is And Is Not

Ask An Asexual

Sheena is joined by author and podcaster, Heather Rose Jones and author Alex Woods to talk about what it really means to be an asexual. In this episode we learn what Asexuality is and is not as well as discussing some common myths, stereotypes and answering listener questions.

Heather and Alex answer

  • How you come to label yourself asexual
  • The claim that Asexuals don’t exist
  • What’s the difference between being asexual and aromantic
  • Does asexual mean not having any sexual feelings, or does it mean not having sexual feelings towards another person?
  • How can an asexual know he or she is homosexual or straight if he or she is not driven by sex attraction? Is there another kind of attraction? What is this attraction?
  • Are you born asexual?

Plus Heather gets geeky about spectrums and we love it.

October 20, 2018

Sappho: The Translations (reprised)

The Lesbian Historic Motif Podcast - Episode 27c

Due to scheduling issues, I’m reprising a pair of shows I aired two years ago about Sappho and her poetry. I hope you enjoy either revisiting this material or discovering it for the first time.

In this episode we talk about

  • How much poetry did Sappho write, and how much survives? Why was it lost, and why were the bits we have preserved?
  • What was the changing image of Sappho from the middle ages through the 19th century? How did people reconcile their admiration for Sappho’s poetry and their disapproval of homosexuality?
  • Who translated Sappho’s works and how did their opinions of her affect those translations?

The show will include recitations of the following poems:

  • Ode to Aphrodite & Fragment #31: Jane McIntosh Snyder from Lesbian Desire in the Lyrics of Sappho (20th century)
  • “On a Lady Named Beloved” inspired by fragment #31: Anne de Rohan (1617), translated from the French
  • Fragment #31: John Hall (1652)
  • Fragment #31: Joseph Addison (1735)
  • Ode to Aphrodite & Fragment #31: Abrose Philips (1748)
  • “Eleanore” inspired by Fragment #31: Lord Tennyson (1832)
  • Fragment #31 & “Imitation of Sappho” inspired by Fragment #31: Mary Hewitt (1845)
