Publisher Comments:

Be careful what you wish for...

Three cutting-edge writers explore the high-wire risk of having a sexual wish come true. In "Jodi K" by Jill Soloway, the award-winning writer/producer of Six Feet Under, a suburban teenager is a skeptical part of every high school make-out scene, but her heart is fixed on the middle-aged man next door. "Charmed, I'm Sure" by Eric Albert, a frequent contributor to Best American Erotica, tells of a single man who enters into a contract with a modern-day witch and finds there are unforeseen complications even in the most magical seductions. 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.

Review:

"Who needs a beach for this summer treat? 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. 'The world is full of emptiness; without it there'd be nothing left': thus does a witch console a client left empty after a phenomenal sex spree in Albert's 'Charmed I'm Sure.' And so it goes with Christina's heroine, Dallas, whose obsession is the eponymous 'Bending.' When an Internet find, Betsy, arrives to fulfill Dallas's submissive fantasies, it's 'the best thing, ever' — except instead of satisfying Dallas, it seems to rob her of her defining passion. Clever Bright saves dessert for last: Soloway's hilarious and sweetly lubricious confessions of 14-year-old Jodi, who has a mad crush on her best friend's father. Written in teen talk, 'Jodi K' sometimes has the awkwardness of a translation. But it's enriched by fully realized portraits of family function and dysfunction, and even while sending up teenage erotic confessionals, it feels written from the heart as well as other regions of the body. (July)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"A smart and delicious trio of erotic novellas — a must-read in bed with towel nearby. I've been a longtime fan of Greta Christina's writing, and here she is at her very best — and in excellent company." Annie Sprinkle, Ph.D., author, Dr. Sprinkle's Spectacular Sex and Annie Sprinkle: Post-Porn Modernist

Review:

"Three Kinds of Asking for It is the perfect book for intellectual sex freaks. Each is different, all are sexual." Sarah Silverman, comedian, screenwriter, Funny Ladies, Saturday Night Live!

Review:

"'Jodi K' is a deeply felt and funny account of a young girl's burgeoning sexuality by a writer too invested in Jodi's story to allow simplistic political correctness and knee-jerk moralism to get in the way of fully exploring the sexual drive and desires of preadolescents. The result is intense, unjudgmental, hilarious, and wise." Alan Ball, creator, Six Feet Under, screenwriter and coproducer, American Beauty

Synopsis:

Organized around a central theme — when you make a sexual wish, be careful what you wish for — Susie Bright presents novellas by three emerging erotica masters: Charmed, I'm Sure by Eric Albert; Bending by Greta Christina and Jodi k by Jill Soloway.
