About the Book Verbal Penetration
Powerful, provocative, and raw, The 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.


Excerpt

Thick

labels do not define me
I am rich with this

Swelling with promise
Uncompromising
and as strong
as the thighs that guide my independence

I am a diva
Cloaked
with possibility
Empowered
by my freedom
to take pride in every
part of me

I am a warrior
My heart
is my shield and sword

I am the light
Breaking through
the seams of night

I am the lioness
dogs find in the moon
the stars
highlight the coils
of my mane

I am a Goddess
My skin has been kissed
by the Son

I am the Mother of Nurture
The world is cradled
in my hips

I am thick with this

APOOO BookClub
Wow! The Punany Poets, Verbal Penetration by Jessica Holter really took me by surprise. I remember seeing a segment of this on HBO's Real Sex and did not remember hearing about the roots of this erotic poetry, which involved coming to fruition as an educational as well as erotic tool to teach about AIDS awareness as a result of the death of rapper, Easy E; so I was really surprised while reading through this book.

Usually when I think Erotica--I am not thinking sex education.
The informational facts laced in between the erotic poetry and short stories is done in very tasteful fashion. I found myself taken on the highs of the erotic words that leapt from the pages--even reading them aloud at times, but then felt grounded again and given a reality check and a dose of reality on the pages that have the informational sexual health facts that are printed in bold. These words were typed in stark contrast from the poetry and story writing and it literally leapt off of the pages to grab my attention and definitely educated me. I say job well done.

I am really glad to have this as an addition to my library and highly recommend it to others. Sex education, in my opinion, is key and what a way to combine it with erotica. It gets kudos from me.
