New York, NY – Penthouse joins forces with Cleis Press to present the first in a series of erotic books curated by the editors of Penthouse Variations. Penthouse Variations on Oral: Erotic Stories of Going Down features almost two dozen short stories by established authors in the genre as well as its brightest up-and-comers.
At once couples friendly and intensely personal, some stories are tender and loving, some are dripping with lust, but they all appeal to a variety of erotic tastes. Future volumes will focus on themes such as female submission and bondage, among others.
Penthouse Variations Executive Editor Barbara Pizio says of this pairing, “Penthouse and Cleis Press share a long history of publishing premier adult fiction.
This series builds upon those decades of experience, offering stories that will continue to inspire and excite our fans.” Cleis Press publisher Brenda Knight adds, “I’ve read all of Penthouse’s titles since college. Their articles and fiction helped form my sensibility and developed my eye for erotic excellence.”
Penthouse Variations on Oral: Erotic Stories of Going Down is available in bookstores and online, in print editions as well as in multiple digital platforms for enjoyment on Kindle, Nook, iTunes, Kobo and other ereaders. It will be distributed to brick-and-mortar bookstores by Publishers Group West.
