The young woman in "Bending", by Greta Christina, the author of Paying for It, can't seem to find an alternative sexual position...until her friends and lovers come up with a scheme that opens her up, literally, to her real needs and desires.

"Bright's imprimatur guarantees heat sufficient to melt an ice floe. As her editorial picks generally do, these novellas deliver not just heat but laughter, poignancy and even the occasional deep thought." (Publishers Weekly)
If you like Susie Bright's annual erotica collections, you know how they invariably tug you outside of your comfort zone before they're done. These three extremely imaginative, constantly amusing tales could not be more different and will provide several hours of extremely intriguing on-the-edge imagery - the type of creativity and wit usually missing from adult films.
The male reader in the first tale also plays the male lead, and occasionally brings the character's emotion to the narration in annoying fashion. The last two tales are even stranger, with more satisfying voice talent. This is worth a listen - especially for a chance to stretch your erotic imagination.
Not particularly erotic... just kind of trashy and pretty much dull. I fast-forwarded through the entire book to try to find the rare-plot elements. Pass on by!
"Rather a Mixed Bag"
I liked the first story about a witch who sold sexy spells, typical male fantasy I know, but it had humour and a hint of the male frustration inasmuchas whatever you wish for usually turns out not to be what you really want. Especially liked the fact that parts of the narration were dramatised. The second story was pretty strong, and bordered on being non erotic as it threw so much sex in your face. The final story seemed out of place, for although written and read in an engaging style, it was about a 14 year old, written in the style of a 14 year old, as if it were one of those campus films. Not very erotic and thankfully it did not go down the route that it signposted, and in the end left one wondering why it had been written, and perhaps more intriguingly why had it been included in the collection!
