Brenda Knight, publisher of the top erotica press in the country Cleis Press, was interviewed by Today.com about the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie and the popularity of erotica among women, especially the popularity of erotic movies. “Something changed, and women were not ashamed and embarrassed, and even considered it a bonding thing with girlfriends to have them over and make popcorn and open wine and watch movies that could be very cinematically graphic in how they deal with sexuality,” Knight said.

Prolific Cleis Press author and editor weighed in on the topic of explicit sex scenes. "That’s why Rachel Kramer Bussel, editor of a newly released anthology called “The Big Book of Submission: 69 Kinky Tales,” said women will demand the movie version of “Fifty Shades” give them the Full Monty."

Cleis Press publishes provocative, intelligent books across genres. Whether literary fiction, human rights, mystery, romance, erotica, LGBTQ studies, sex guides, pulp fiction, or memoir, you know that if it's outside the ordinary, it's Cleis Press.
