Description

'I have seen and done everything There is no fantasy left that scares me.' Known to her clients as 'the Surfer Girl', Bruna Surfistinha ran away from home at the age of seventeen to become a high-class call girl. She wrote a candid and explicit web diary about her three years turning tricks in the swanky suburbs of Sao Paulo. Now she draws back the sheets to reveal the whole story. Insouciant and funny, Bruna portrays her estranged middle-class family, her out-of-control drug use and her unbridled sexuality. Part memoir, part cautionary tale, part sex guide, The Scorpion's Sweet Venom brings to life the details of Bruna's adventures with men, women and couples and reveals what we really want in bed but are afraid to ask for at home.show more

Review quote

'Erotic fiction has been languishing on the top shelf for years, but a new generation of woman writers is moving it from the fringes to the literary mainstream' Observer Magazine 'Her hilarious, yet often fond descriptions of her clients are brilliant ... This blog-book is grittier than most ... Her adult diary is a hoot ... Written in her witty style, coupled with some extremely explicit entries, this book is a must for blog-book fans, acting as a sex guide, cautionary tale and raunchy memoir' Chloe Cummings, Erotic Review 'Shhh...sex sells. The British buy books about sex ranging from traditional erotica to practical guides and 'posh porn' published under the guise of art. These writers can be seen as part of the new generation of feminism, with women feeling more at ease writing about sex' Bookseller 'An intriguing mixture of autobiography and advice on sexual technique' Sunday Timesshow more
