Penthouse Magazine to Publish Erotica

booksThe erotica genre in books is a very lucrative one, and the porn magazine Penthouse isn’t one to let this literary boom pass. The magazine has partnered with Cleis Press to publish a series of erotica novels they are calling “Penthouse Variations On“. Each book in the series will focus on one aspect of erotica, or sexual theme. The first book is titled Penthouse Variation on Oral.

We are excited by this opportunity to expand the readerships of both Cleis and Penthouse in this fresh cross-pollination of sex positive culture. Together, we plan to develop a unique series that will take the erotica market by storm,” said Felice Newman of Cleis Press.

Here’s more information from Cleis Press:

Cleis Press has published sexuality guides and fiction since its founding in 1980, and has earned a reputation for literary erotica that especially appeals to female readers. Cleis Press’s core authors include top writers, sexperts, and eroticists as Tristan TaorminoRachel Kramer Bussel, Alison Tyler, Violet Blue, Kristina Wright, and Delilah Devlin. Unique to Cleis Press is their editorial point of view. Co-founder Felice Newman has 35 years experience editing sex guides and erotica and has it down to a science. In the words of publisher Brenda Knight, “Newman has a keen focus on what appeals to female erotica readers. She knows what works and what doesn’t, and has made a real contribution to a more sex-positive America. We are great admirers of Penthouse and their enormous impact on sex and culture.”

Penthouse has a rich and ever-expanding collection of erotic writings from decades of publishing Variations, a magazine dedicated to written fantasies of every variety. With a focus on the enhancement of the lives of couples, a substantial amount of the magazine is written from a woman’s point of view and reflects Penthouse’s long tradition of celebrating female sexuality. Penthouse Variations has a loyal readership due to its diverse array of stories based in sexual fantasies ranging from girl-on-girl, BDSM and ménage.

Both companies are eager and excited about all the possibilities of their new relationship. Co-founder of Cleis Press Felice Newman remarked, “We are excited by this opportunity to expand the readerships of both Cleis and Penthouse in this fresh cross-pollination of sex positive culture. Together, we plan to develop a unique series that will take the erotica market by storm.”

Together, Cleis Press and Penthouse will merge their combined penchants for quality erotica to create the co-branded Penthouse Variations On, collections featuring adult fantasies sure to entice loyal readers from both erotic providers. Penthouse Variations On will take each company’s best-selling formula one step further and encourage female readers to broaden their horizons and dare to explore their favorite fantasies.

The books have an expected early fall release date.
