The Scorpion’s Sweet Venom – Bruna Surfinhista

It is October, 2005. In an apartment in the upmarket neighbourhood of Sao Paulo, Brazil, 21-year-old Bruna Surfistinha, or Bruna the Surfer Girl, has sexual encounters with up to five men a day. A teen runaway who has had to turn tricks for a living, Bruna begins to write about her experiences in a blog. What she creates is a scintillating soap opera, loaded with family drama, love stories and, of course, sex! – Goodreads.com

This novel is a part of my personal collection.

From memory, I picked this book up from Booktopia.com on a whim. I’m not a fan of erotica, but I do enjoy looking into more obscure professions and lifestyles and this novel offered exactly that.

I really enjoyed Bruna’s voice and the stories she told were intriguing and intimate. A real glimpse into the underground world of sex-work.
