A selection of three varied erotic short stories. ´´Bound to Sell´´ by Teresa Joseph. Inviting a crowd of lusty lesbians to a fetish bondage party is bound to lead to fun and games. Hostess, Lisa, finds she is in trouble when she demonstrates an innovative new bondage system that puts the wearer under the complete control of her lover and can also give-mind numbingly powerful orgasms. ´´After the Funeral´´ by Elizabeth Cage. When her husband Mark died, Claudia was relieved. He’d often tried to get her to partake in strange sexual practices, like bondage. Then when his solicitor, Elliott, reads the will, Claudia realises that what he failed to get her to do while alive, he will force her to do now. If she wants to inherit his vast fortune she must submit to a night of sexual deviance, and this must be witnessed by Elliott. ´´It All Depends on How You See It´´ by Kitti Bernetti. Joe says men will see ´´sex” in every situation. Vanessa argues that some things just aren’t sexy. And so Joe bets her that he can make any situation sexy. If he wins he will claim his prize, but Vanessa has no idea his prize is her and suddenly things are getting very heated. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Katy Anderson.

Describes how the ancient Persian prophet Zarathustra descends from his solitude in the mountains to tell the world that God is dead and that the Superman, the human embodiment of divinity, is his successor. This title argues that the meaning of existence is not to be found in religious pieties or meek submission, but in a powerful life force.
Written by G. K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy addresses foremost one main problem: How can we contrive to be at once astonished at the world and yet at home in it? Chesterton writes, ´´I wish to set forth my faith as particularly answering this double spiritual need, the need for that mixture of the familiar and the unfamiliar which Christendom has rightly named romance.´´ Chesterton likens orthodox Christianity to a man who set out in a boat from England and was quite excited to land on an island only to soon discover he had, in fact, landed on England. ´´I am the man who with the utmost daring discovered what had been discovered before.´´ This is Chesterton´s autobiography. It is his story of finding the familiar and unfamiliar in Christianity. It is his hunt for the gorgon or griffin and in the end discovers a rhinoceros and then takes pleasure in the fact that a rhinoceros exists but looks as if it oughtn´t. In Orthodoxy, Chesterton argues that people in Western society need a life of ´´practical romance, the combination of something that is strange with something that is secure. We need so to view the world as to combine an idea of wonder and an idea of welcome.´´ Drawing on such figures as Fra Angelico, George Bernard Shaw, and St. Paul to make his points, Chesterton argues that submission to ecclesiastical authority is the way to achieve a good and balanced life. 1.

At the dawn of the 21st century, dizzying scientific and technological advancements, interconnected globalized economies, and even the so-called New Atheists have done nothing to change one thing: our world remains furiously religious. For good and for evil, religion is the single greatest influence in the world. We accept as self-evident that competing economic systems (capitalist or communist) or clashing political parties (Republican or Democratic) propose very different solutions to our planet´s problems. So why do we pretend that the world´s religious traditions are different paths to the same God? We blur the sharp distinctions between religions at our own peril, argues religion scholar Stephen Prothero, and it is time to replace naive hopes of interreligious unity with deeper knowledge of religious differences. In Religious Literacy, Prothero demonstrated how little Americans know about their own religious traditions and why the world´s religions should be taught in public schools. Now, in God Is Not One, Prothero provides listeners with this much-needed content about each of the eight great religions. To claim that all religions are the same is to misunderstand that each attempts to solve a different human problem. For example: Islam: the problem is pride / the solution is submission Christianity: the problem is sin / the solution is salvation Confucianism: the problem is chaos / the solution is social order Buddhism: the problem is suffering / the solution is awakening Judaism: the problem is exile / the solution is to return to God Prothero reveals each of these traditions on its own terms to create an indispensable guide for anyone who wants to better understand the big questions human beings have asked for millennia and the disparate paths we are taking to answer them today. 1.
