Founded by Felice Newman and Fr?d?rique Delacoste in 1980, the press's mission is to explore and celebrate sex in all its forms. Cleis publishes provocative, intelligent books in the areas of sexuality, gay and lesbian studies, erotica, fiction, gender studies, and human rights. Groundbreaking titles include The Survivor's Guide to Sex, Ultimate Guide to Sex and Disability, Body Alchemy: Transsexual Portraits, Sex Work: Writings by Women in the Sex Industry, Public Sex: The Culture of Radical Sex, and The Whole Lesbian Sex Book. Beginning in 2006, Newman and Delacoste will edit the Best Sex Writing series, an annual collection comprising a detailed, direct survey of the contemporary American sexual landscape, a landscape Newman and Delacoste helped shape.
