Sex Writing 2006
Edited by Felice Newman and Frédérique Delacoste
a single generation, Cleis Press has fundamentally changed the
way people talk—and what they read—about sex and gender.
Founded by Felice Newman and Frédérique Delacoste
in 1980, the press’s mission is to explore and celebrate
sex in all its forms. For the first time, Cleis’s founders
bring their own sex-positive sensibilities to bear on one of their
most popular series. In Best Sex Writing 2006, they’ve collected
challenging and provocative nonfiction articles on this endlessly
evocative subject. The essays here comprise a detailed, direct
survey of the contemporary American sexual landscape, a landscape
Newman and Delacoste helped shape.
