Powerful, provocative, and raw, self-described punany poets take readers on an extraordinary erotic journey, melding poetry, short stories, and prose…to explore the essence of black male and female sexuality. The Punany Poets are pioneers of erotic entertainment, creating lush literary works that also encourage self-empowerment and safer sex. Punany Poets' founder Jessica Holter, whose urban classic Punany: The Hip Hop Psalms was featured on HBO's Real Sex, has adapted the Poets' compositions into a groundbreaking anthology created to rouse the senses and inspire the imagination. Vivid, compelling poems and prose pieces deal with every facet of modern love and lust, and blend tantalizing sensual imagery with an underlying message of urban-rooted AIDS awareness. Never preachy, always original, and guaranteed to stimulate the individual and the couple, Verbal Penetration is unique among poetry anthologies -- a riveting, multi-dimensional erotic experience with heart, soul, and message.
