bending the mast

bending the mast is one of the ways to flatten a sail. very light air and heavy air.
on a mast head rig how can the mast bend? seems that tightening the backstay would only pull the mast straight back and also tighten the forestay. not have any affect on the shape of the sail.
would this be correct?
