Overview

These are not nice stories. They're filthy. They're fearless. Some are even funny. Greta Christina's erotic stories are written change the ways you think about sex. These are dirty, kinky stories about shame, about pain, helplessness and danger, reckless behavior and bad, bad ideas. A baby dyke is manipulated into fetish porn by her beautiful, self-absorbed porn-star lover. A good Christian wife follows her duty to obey, even as her husband's sexual demands become bizarre. A student, hungry for punishment, seeks it from a professor who should know better. A woman with a dedicated fetish finds a lover who meets her more than halfway. And then there's the one about the unicorn and the rainbow. Raw, exciting, joyful, intensely believable, Greta's stories are written with a fierce respect for erotic fiction—and for sex itself.

Reviews

"Located at some far vanishing point of sex and language, Greta Christina's wildly hot and masterfully written stories make you rethink what you supposed you already knew—about command and consent, fantasy, belief, and that whole body-mind thing. The payoff is pleasure; the price of the ticket is to leave a few certainties at the door."  —Molly Weatherfield, author, Carrie's Story and Safe Word

"If books are sex, this one is a sticky, urgent alleyway fuck that you carry in your limbs forever."  —Adele Haze, BDSM model and writer

"One of the most exciting things about fantasies is that they let us explore and get turned on by things we might not want to actually do in real life. And sometimes, we get turned on by things that we might not even want to admit to thinking about. But that doesn't mean that those fantasies aren't hot! In Bending, Greta Christina shares stories that'll get you excited, bring a blush to your cheeks, make you laugh, and even make you stop and wonder why you're enjoying them so much. It's full of twists and surprises, hot sex, raunchy details, and lots of edges. Will you like all of the stories? Probably not. But the ones you do enjoy will quickly become favorites that you'll come back to, again and again. So if you like to play on the edge, or if you simply get turned on thinking about it, pick up a copy of Bending and discover just how far sexy goes."  —Charlie Glickman, PhD, author, The Ultimate Guide to Prostate Pleasure

"Greta Christina makes me want to live in one of her stories—actually, most of her stories! Not because of the smoking hot sex, kink and power exchange alone, but because her characters are bold, brazen and willing to go to any length to live out their fantasies. Bending is a must read for anyone with an erotic imagination—or who wants to develop one."  —Rachel Kramer Bussel, editor, Orgasmic and Cheeky Spanking Stories "I have just one word for Greta Christina's erotic writing: Wise. What I mean by wise is, you won't want to pick it up at all if you don't want to know something deep, thoughtful, surprising, maybe troubling, and certainly inspiring about sex. (Sex, and spanking.) Well, actually, on second thought, I do have a few more relevant words: Completely freakin' knowingly and on purpose filthy dirty pervy. In a wise, deeply wise, way. There. That about covers it. So if you want to know more, a lot more about sex: Read Greta's book. Money in the bank."  —Carol Queen, PhD, author, The Leather Daddy and the Femme "When I want the best erotica in the world, give me Greta Christina. Her new stories go where other writers dare not tread—and I love her for it. Greta gives me throbbing clitoral erections and huge orgasms every time. Gracias Greta! I'm going to reread a story right now!"  —Annie Sprinkle, PhD, sex worker artist turned EcoSexologist
