 Best Sex Writing 2006
Edited by Felice Newman and Frédérique Delacoste

In 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.
