Militant Eroticism is a collection of essays, poems and a ritual by Aden Ardennes.
Militant Eroticism describes the gutter in which our fellow men and women explore the depths of their depravity. Aden Ardennes has dedicated his life to ferreting out your dirty little secrets, and what you hold in your hand are his reports from the collective sexual sewer. The ideas and arguments presented in these essays are based on his experiences among the bathhouses and rest stops, his time spent with prostitutes and at motels with married men, as well as his experiences as co-host of the sex-talk podcast Naughty Bits and contributor to 9sense podcast. These pieces demand the utmost honesty from their readers, forcing them to gawk in terror at their morally bankrupt inclinations. From the evils of circumcision and the glory of gangbangs to the grandeur of walking the Low Road and the ridiculousness of the monogamy-only narrative, Aden Ardennes drags you down to the Brothel, where everyone is degraded.
About the Author
Aden Ardennes was born in Detroit, MI, where he spent most of his childhood fascinated by the people around him and their interactions with one another. Somewhat of a loner, he would watch others get to know each other and became intrigued by the dynamics of bonding. Aden spent much of his teens traveling the country with the Boy Scouts, where his fascination with gender roles blossomed. As a homosexual in an all-male environment, his preoccupation with bonding behavior intensified and became centered on male relationships. His clinical voyeurism coupled with his other childhood interests eventually matured into passions for philosophy and the social sciences. In 2010, Aden moved to New York City, where he currently resides. Since then, he has channeled his knowledge and childlike curiosity into co-hosting the sex-talk podcast “Naughty Bits,” hosting a monthly segment on 9sense Podcast entitled “Militant Eroticism,” pursuing a degree in psychology, and building his own porn company. In the end, nothing has changed for Aden. He is still obsessed with you.
