Pleasure Principle is the debut album by the female P-Funk spin off group Parlet. The album was released in 1978 by Casablanca Records and was produced by P-Funk leader/producer George Clinton. Parlet consisted of Mallia Franklin, Debbie Wright, and Jeanette Washington. The album features heavy involvement from the P-Funk musical collective. The track "Cookie Jar" was originally written and recorded by Clarence "Fuzzy" Haskins.
In 1992, Pleasure Principle was reissued on CD in Japan by the Casablanca/Polystar label, but quickly went out of print. On July 30, 2013, Real Gone Music in the U.S. reissued both Pleasure Principle and Invasion Of The Booty Snatchers, featuring liner notes by former P-Funk minister of information Tom Vickers.
