Ieva Stončikaitė presents "Erica Jong & Nonconformity in Contemporary Literary Representations of Aging & Sexuality" at the ACLA Annual Meeting (Chicago, Illinios, USA) held online on the 8th-11th of April, 2021. This paper focuses on changing attitudes towards sexual practices and the perception of sexuality in later years, as exemplified in Erica Jong’s middle and late life works and interviews. Instead of succumbing to anti-aging culture and biomedicalization of sex in old age, Jong reveals alternative ways of exploring sexual practices in older age, and challenges a pharmaceutical market that promotes the consumption of medication to enhance the idea of virility and ‘sexual fitness’ in older men. Her work undoes the narrative of decline that portrays older individuals as sexually inactive and frail.
