    While not specifically about aces or aros, I think the struggles and successes of nontraditional relationships is relevant. TW: suicide.

    This commentary discusses stats around virginity and asexuality.

    The artist explains the “sex, love, and codependent tendencies” behind the songs in the “Demisexual Lovelace” album. I couldn’t find confirmation of why the word demisexual is used (Is the artist demi? Does the author relate to demisexuality? Is it just a cool word?), but the artist’s explanations talk about thinking something is romantic attraction and realizing it’s not, outdate tropes and freeing yourself from “your own limiting stories” of what love is.
