Bruna Surfistinha

Bruna Surfistinha is a garota da programa ( call girl ). Her book " the sweet poison of scorpion " in portuguese is a bestseller in Brazil these days. She has become a celebrity and appears in talk shows. The book has been translated in spanish and soon the English edition is expected.

Out of curiosity, i bought a copy and finished reading it in two sittings. It is mostly about sex and is rather explicit. It is also an autobiography of Bruna. She describes her experience with her clients and gets into titilating details.

She has a website and blog

In this , she writes her diary describing her dreams, activities, problems and life in general. She gives advice to the blog readers sometimes. No great cerebral stuff as one would have guessed. She talks about her parents and her new found namorado ( boy friend) with whom she plans to settle down. She expresses the struggle ( weak one ) between her dual personality of Raquel, her original name and her new personlity as a professional Bruna.

Outsiders and even some Brazilians are prone to making moral judgements. But this is part of Brazil.
