On the occasion of WORLD SEXUAL HEALTH DAY 2022, HarperCollins India is proud to announce the upcoming publication of THE SEX BOOK by Leeza Mangaldas


NEW DELHI, Sept. 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — HarperCollins is delighted to announce the publication of award-winning sex educator Leeza Mangaldas’ first book ‘THE SEX BOOK: A JOYFUL JOURNEY OF SELF DISCOVERY’, coming out on 17thOctober 2022.

Talking about the book Leeza Mangaldas says, “Writing The Sex Book—my first book—is an absolute dream come true for me. The overwhelming response my sex education videos have received over the last 5 years made me realize that people of all genders and age groups recognize the need for greater awareness about sex, sexual health, sexuality and the body. My vision has been to write a book about sex that is as useful as it is joyful. I hope that this book will serve as the scientifically accurate, judgement-free, pleasure-inclusive manual that helps generations of Indians navigate and celebrate their bodies, identities and relationships.

Poulomi Chatterjee, Publisher at HarperCollins Publishers India, says, “Over the years, Leeza Mangaldas has invested a tremendous amount of time, energy and empathy to address a crying need in India—fact-based, frank and bias-free conversations around sexual health, pleasure and sexuality that will eventually encourage gender equality and inclusivity. We’re delighted to be publishing The Sex Book, which distils Leeza’s in-depth research on the topic and is an invaluable manual that is truly a firstofitskind. Accessible and comprehensive, it will educate, guide, clarify, shatter ill-informed myths about sex and the body, and inspire readers to embrace body positivity, sex positivity and healthier relationships.”
