What do you get when you combine one venerated erotica publisher—in this case, Cleis Press—with a forward-thinking sex toy etailer and its literary offshoot—EdenFantasys and SexIs? An online book club for enquiring minds who love to read about all things sex, of course! From the politics of pornography to the erotically evocative boundaries of desire, each month, selected titles from the Cleis catalogue are up for review by members of the EdenFantasys online community that are sure to spark lively and provocative discussions in our forums.
Through a series of exclusive interviews and feature articles, magazine, SexIs, will offer a deeper foray into the provocative themes—including “Sexuality and Race,” “The Limits of Monogamy,” and “Sexual Healing through Surrogacy,” as well as such titillating fare as “Oral Sex Month”—based on each month’s featured titles.
Founded in 1980 by Felice Newman and Frédérique Delacoste, Cleis Press, with its unique list of erotically charged literature for people of all gender orientations and lifestyle choices, EdenFantasys and SexIs—“Where sex is anything you want it to be”—form the perfect complement to create a sex-positive force for the advancement of seductive reading that will not only inspire fantasies, but fulfill them.
Books scheduled for review include: Best Sex Writing 2010; Best Fetish Erotica; Do Not Disturb: Hotel Sex Stories; Playing With Fire: Taboo Erotica; Ultimate Guide Fellatio and Ultimate Guide Cunnilingus by Violet Blue; Afternoon Delight, Erotica for Couples; Pleasure Bound; Peep Show and Best Women’s Erotica 2010. Along with monthly reading selections, you will be treated to insights and interviews from Best Sex Writing 2010’s Rachel Kramer Bussel; “The Trollop with a Laptop,” celebrated erotica author/editrix, Alison Tyler; Cleis founder Felice Newman; author Violet Blue; plus conservative nemesis and author of In Praise of Indecency, Paul Krassner.
