Summary

The international bestselling erotic novel about a young Sicilian girl’s search for love in a pornographic world—“a scandal a la Catherine M.” (L’Espresso, Italy). 
 
An instant blockbuster in Italy that went on to become an international literary phenomenon, 100 Strokes of the Brush Before Bed is the fictionalized memoir of Melissa P., a Sicilian teenager whose quest for love rapidly devolves into a shocking journey of sexual discovery. 
 
Melissa begins her diary a virgin, but a stormy affair at the age of fourteen leads her to regard sex as a means of self-discovery, and for the next two years she plunges into a succession of encounters with various partners, male and female, her age and much older, some met through schoolmates, others through newspaper ads and Internet chat rooms. In graphic detail she describes her journey through a Dante-esque underworld of eroticism, where she willingly participates in group sex and sadomasochism, as well as casual pickups. 
 
Told with disarming candor, Melissa P.’s bittersweet tour of extreme desires is as poignant as it is titillating. One Hundred Strokes of the Brush Before Bed is a stunning erotic debut, a Story of O for our times.
Available since: 12/01/2007.
Print length: 180 pages.

    'The first time I listened to this, I rated it a 5 (out of 10) on the ... scale. This was my second time listening to the recording, and it definitely went up to a 7 (minus ejaculation). I'm looking forward to the next time!' 
    'I loved this, I put it on when I was in bed, it wasn't that great of an idea since I came all over my bed, I came at least a few feet in the air.'

    A glance. Sometimes that's all it takes for desire to overwhelm you, to make the body of a total stranger all you want, in all the sweating screaming ways propriety says should be forbidden. For Fiona, that glance just happened in the most unlikely of places, a crowded mall filled with tens of thousands. And in that glance is something terrifying. But its not the location that upsets her, not the sudden steaming arousal that shames her. It's not even the guilt that eats her because the glance isn't with her husband. The fear that's found her, that's begging her to flee from the lust and connection she's found in that glance, is a hidden secret she's run from for years. For on the other side of that glance, beaming in all its feminine glory, is the face of another woman. A face that's determined to have her.

    Inspired by The Hunger Games series, Nathan Alexander's Hunger Gays follows the story of young Aspen Summers who has grown up in a world where young men are rounded up by the government and forced to participate in the deadly MvM match, an annual tournament where there can only be one champion--or one survivor. The feared event not only forces young men into public expressions of sexual domination and submission, but also serves as a reminder that nothing, not even the will of one man, is stronger than the will of the government. But when Aspen finds himself participating in this kinky tournament after a lifetime of repression and poverty, he begins to unlock inner desires that could quite possibly expose and put to shame the government's own actions. Can Aspen rise above his own need for gratification and find true love? Or will he succumb to his now-insatiable desires and become someone capable of bringing the government to its knees?
