- Founded in 1975, Down There Press is the nation's first independent publisher devoted exclusively to publishing sexual health books. Founder and Publisher Emerita Joani Blank, then working as a sex educator and counselor, started writing her own books about sexuality at her clients' and other therapists' behest.
- The press currently has a list of eighteen sexual self-awareness titles, including innovative and practical non-fiction with non-judgmental techniques for strengthening sexual communication. Down There Press also publishes lively literary and photographic erotica.Thirty-two full-color photographs of women's genitals reflect the diversity of women's bodies. Therapists, sex educators, women's health clinicians -- and all women -- will find this volume a welcome addition to their libraries.
- "You will find these images some of the most beautiful you've ever seen, or be shocked by them. This book is a magic mirror letting you know exactly how you feel about female genitalia. It's a perfect coffee table book." Annie Sprinkle, Performance Artist
- "In these photographs of the vulva the hidden is revealed--as a reality and as an art form. The anatomic variability which makes each human face distinct is clearly reflected all over our bodies, and is now appreciated in the 'femalia'."
