"Love with robots will be as normal as love with other humans, while the number of sexual acts and lovemaking positions commonly practiced between humans will be extended, as robots teach more than is in all of the world's published sex manuals combined." —Computer pioneer David Levy, in Love and Sex With Robots.
Bondage, science fiction, fetishism, real realities and virtual realities collide in this unique collection by one of the most popular authors of erotica! In the enigmatic M.Christian's kinky new collection, two great things—technology and sex—go even better together! Welcome to Technorotica: a giant-sized collection of human/machine erotica. You'll find everything from sexy robots to virtual reality lovers, from shameless science fiction to contemporary explorations of technology's impact on our sex lives and our sexuality.
Headlining this stellar collection are two unforgettable novellas: In "Hot Definition," the story of a future just around our corner, Neko experiences the ultimate domination in a way she never expected; in "Speaking Parts," two lovers, one with a camera-shutter eye, come together in a scorching, obsessive relationship that takes them both to the limits of sexuality—and beyond. Plus ten more provocative stories of sex and technosex.
"'Blow Up' alone makes it worth buying. I highly recommend this book." —Fire Pages
"M. Christian is one hell of a writer. A no-holds-barred storyteller, he embraces his reader at the start and doesn't let go until long after the end." —Mari Adkins
"M. Christian's stories squat at the intersection of Primal Urges Avenue and Hi-Tech Parkway ... feral-eyed, half-naked ... Truly an author for our post-everything 21st century." —Paul Di Filippo, author, The Steampunk Trilogy
Calling M.Christian versatile is a tremendous understatement. Extensively published in science fiction, fantasy, horror, thrillers, and even non-fiction, it is in erotica that M.Christian has become an acknowledged master - with more than 400 stories in such anthologies as Best American Erotica, Best Gay Erotica, Best Lesbian Erotica, Best Bisexual Erotica, Best Fetish Erotica, and, in fact, too many anthologies, magazines, and sites to name.
M. Christian has also edited a distinguished line of anthologies on his own and with collaborators like Maxim Jakubowski and Sage Vivant.
His novels Running Dry, The Very Bloody Marys, Me2, Brushes, and Painted Doll were published to critical acclaim. He blogs monthly for The Erotica Readers and Writers Association website.
When he's not writing—which isn't often—M.Christian ("Chris" to his friends) is an avid foodie, gamer, photographer, and also creates odd little art projects ... and, considering Chris, 'odd' is an understatement as well.
I think of M. Christian like I think of hummus—both are acquired tastes. However, once you get to liking either, you just can’t get enough. As prolific a writer as Christian is, I never get quite enough. He is erotic and futuristic and has a sardonic sense of humor, However, above everything else, he goes where few dasn’t. In this anthology, Christian takes a step into the future and writes about bondage, fetishes, science fiction, and sex with robots and so on. In fact, we are taught by robots how to be great lovers. I suppose you could label this man/machine erotica, as Christian unites sex and technology and there is a lot of Christian trademark kink. This is most definitely not your “everyday” read.
Eleven stories are sandwiched between the introduction, “Welcome to the World of Tomorrow” and the afterword, “Do You Know Where Your Children Will Be”? All of the stories are excellent but the one that stands out for me in “Blow Up” and that is all I am going to say. If you want to know why it is so special, you will have to get a copy of the book. Christian writes what I call literary erotica. He manages to infuse good writing with lots of sex and the result is almost a new genre. He is, however, the most difficult author to review because it is so easy to give away plots when discussing his writing. Therefore all I can say is for you to get a copy, clear an afternoon sit in the recliner with your feet up and the book open and enjoy every word.
