The Punany Poets is a theater project created by Jessica Holter, an author and advocate for sexual health who conceived the idea to publish a book about sex and HIV after the death of Eric Easy E Wright of AIDS in 1995.
In 1997 Holter published her first book Punany The Hip Hop Psalms filled with hip hop styled erotica, sexy images and public service messages. it was a 104 page coffee table book packed with Black sexuality... a concept rare to the general public outside of the confines of misogynistic music of the era.
The book caught the attention of the producers of HBO's Real Sex. An 11 minute feature on HBO expanded into a 21 year career for Holter and her crazy sexy network of poets, singers, dancers and musicians who tour all year with a special emphasis on Valentine's Season and Black History Month.
