About

SENSUAL DELIGHT PRESS  is a cooperative publishing project exploring & expanding the radical potential of pleasure and place.

We believe that sensuality is innate to all things, including the flora and fauna of the natural world from which we draw inspiration. We uplift work that celebrates and examines the variety of ways we get in touch with ourselves, each other and our corner of the world.

By engaging our senses and exploring our sensual nature we reclaim our bodies as sources of pleasure and wisdom. We bring this power into our day-to-day lives and inhabit our place in the world with greater intimacy, curiosity, self determination and embodied awareness.

We publish zines, interviews, periodicals, stickers, comics, guides, poems, recipes and more. We build relationships with artists, activists, healers and visionaries that are as equitable as possible. The path to liberation is collaborative, interdependent and aligned with pleasure and care.

We center communities that have historically been marginalized and foster work that counters capitalist and colonial systems and mindsets which have taught us that connection between all living beings is inherently separate, hierarchical, and built for exploitation.

We are here for the tender, the critical, the sacred, the queer, the imaginative, and the weird and playful voices that take a stand against these systems in order to establish a more just and pleasure-filled world.


We are based in Pittsburgh, PA

“To be sensual, I think, is to respect and rejoice in the force of life, of life itself, and to be present in all that one does, from the effort of loving to the breaking of bread.”
James Baldwin
