    1. I was first introduced to Anais Nin by my boyfriend, who bought me a first edition of Little Birds on Valentines Day a couple of years ago I was surprised to discover that it wasn t raunchy or esoteric at all, but very accessible, very beautiful, and naturally very sensual At an estate sale recently I came across Delta of Venus and picked it up partly out of interest in Nin s writing and partly because it was a vintage book and I love vintage books Delta of Venus is far sexier than Little Birds [...]

    2. 3.5 5Let s get one thing straight This is erotica Erotica erotica erotica erotica erotica You know that phenomenon when you say something so many times that it temporarily loses its meaning Firstly, it s a psychological phenomenon known as semantic satiation Secondly, that s what I m trying to do here with the word erotica Erotica erotica erotica erotica erotica Run through that a few times if you haven t sufficiently stripped yourself of assumptions, contextual peripheries, and all other sorts [...]

    3. I was rereading bits of this last night after seeing several one or two star reviews of it pop up in my feed recently And scanning through some of the other GR reviews here, there s a lot of people objecting that it s icky one reviewer lists all the things that feature in Delta, things like incest, rape, paedophilia, and then just says, Ew, right WELL NO NOT EW ACTUALLY I mean yes, ew, if you like, of course a lot of these things may not be very appealing depending on your tastes, but fundament [...]

    4. Wow.I mean, I had never heard of this until recently when I had been dared to read it, and yes, I knew that I was getting into heavy erotica, but I hadn t expected it to be so damn good.Seriously I m not ashamed to admit that I was almost completely unable to stand up during most of the read, and because I was using text t0 speech, that mean being rather unpleasantly surprised as I was up and about during my day.I wanted to scream out, Oh, come on or This isn t Fair at random people as I was rea [...]

    5. Tricky oneIs there any way to write well about sex Too much metaphor and the words themselves are destroyed in an orgy of filth, too little and it can become cold and clinical The issues of gender politics, the fluidity of sexuality and sexual identity, and different sexual kinks also come into play It s a fine tightrope to balance on And it disturbed me early on with the mention of children, oh God, this better not be anything like 120 Days of Sodom , thankfully not, what follows are deeply eng [...]

    6. A kaleidescopic array of tantalizing erotica An epidemic of erotic journals that s indispensable to the most insatiable of aficionados It is the best of its type no doubt this may be the bible of this literary black sheep genre It smolders, it quickens the pulse even if you re gay, even if you re a prude, even if you believe that this is not your cup a tea The charm of this experiment, or, seeing of sexual experience from a woman s point of view lies in its Russian Nesting dolls plot , in which [...]

    7. I think you have to be a little on the sick and twisted to get off on this book Well, parts of it Here are some examples of the icky ickiness Anais Nin writes about in Delta of Venus Dude lays in bed early in the morning, and some kids who live in the house come in and horse play around his room He gets a hard on and encourages them to frolic about on top of the covers Same dude, decades later, takes custody of his teenage son and daughter Then he fucks em A different dude burns some lady s coot [...]

    8. A broke Anais Nin wrote porn at a dollar a page for an unknown collector who kept telling her to write less literary crap, of the in and out Which infuriated her, because she thought he was destroying everything interesting about sex Which is basically the same debate people are having today about internet porn.And she keeps punishing him for it In one story a woman has an erotic opium experience, and it s pretty hot I guess, and then suddenly it s like view spoiler And then the guy almost slas [...]

    9.

    10. What is the difference between porn and erotica Somebody much wittier than me said it was the lighting, but I honestly don t know.

    11. Como siempre he dicho, no soy de leer novela er tica, pero por una vez me apetec a leer algo as sin tener que aguantar a ning n macho alfa de los que abundan en las novelas rom nticas.

    12. Over a period of years, I tried to find what I could appreciate about Nin s writing Sure, it was groundbreaking at the time it was written and critically, I guess that s important It s pretty silly I imagine college girls trying to copy Dita Von Teese s style read this in a dressing gown, drinking wine on some Urban Outfitters silk bedspread before going out That is enough to make me dislike it.

    13. Less Poetry Most of the stories in Delta of Venus were written under a quasi Oulipean constraint they were commissioned by a collector of erotica who specified, Concentrate on sex Leave out the poetry Anais Nin initially complied However, I began to write tongue in cheek, to become outlandish, inventive, and so exaggerated that I thought he would realise I was caricaturing sexuality Back came the response, Less poetry The collector was looking for explicit, clinically precise description of sexu [...]

    14. The first erotica I read, and probably the last, because I can t imagine liking anything else as much I liked this Well, except maybe Anais Nin.I read it one summer during high school after discovering it in our guestroom closet I hid the book in my pillowcase so that my mother wouldn t see me reading it I went through it in about 3 days, and continually revisit it when I m feeling particularly saucy.It s basically a series of short stories focusing around sexual perversions and explorations, w [...]

    15. What is, indeed, being erotic Wherein lays its essence Does it even have an essence, or a formula that one can follow and therefore achieve eroticism Is it confined only to the feminine Is age of any importance when it comes to it Is there a difference between erotic and sexual Are these two irrevocably intertwined Is it the mind that is aroused, or the body Can you achieve eroticism purely by matter of perception What is considered erotic by an individual, and how has that been shaped by the cu [...]

    16. The following review contains little spoilers Read at your own risk.Delta of Venus by Ana s Nin is a collection of erotic short stories Seriously amazing short stories I haven t technically read this book since I keep it on my bedside table and take little nibbles of it when I feel like it I might reread some stories or skip ones altogether Therefore, I m going to be rating the stories individually The Hungarian Adventurer This one is disgusting Rouging your vagina is one thing Raping your child [...]

    17. I read this book while my heart was breaking in the Spring of 2009 stubborn resistant to change, this was exactly the medicine I needed to break all the way open It wasn t until I felt Ana s voice echoing inside me that I truly understood respected what it means to be feminine, to accept, to renew, to hold nurture, to passionately let go, in the process become what I always felt a woman should be warm, dark, fathomless ocean Having a naturally very dominant, fiery, masculine personality real, tr [...]

    18. Honestly I liked this book It is erotica but it is classic and I love everything that have been written so many years ago when I wasn t born yet and people still devour them like they were recently published.It s just that don t read this book straight in just few days It could be numbing and lose its meaning You see, the book is composed of short stories about sexual encounters and Anais Nin made sure that each story is different from the others by delving into different sexual subjects, mostly [...]

    19. Anais Nin and a few of her writer friends were asked by an anonymous wealthy collector to write a series of Erotic short stories for 1.00 per page for his pleasure However the collector was specific in the kind of erotica he wanted Anais was to omit any warmth, emotion or poetry to her writing and only concentrate on the sex.Even though these restrictions were in place I don t think I ve ever read erotica so well written, it was polished, bold and wildly daring She covers a range of sexual fetis [...]

    20. Erotica is one thing that I appreciate and enjoy, but necrophilia, pedophilia, sadism you don t burn someone s genitals is NOT OK , and so forth, is a different thing I don t think the book is beautifully written either, and it is not creative at all Clearly, Anais Nin tried to be original and perhaps that is why she felt the need to go that far well, perhaps that should have been expected if we remember that she had an incestuous relationship with her dad, and was married to two guys at the sam [...]

    21. The people I follow on tumblr seem to absolutely adore Anais Nin and they have reblogged or posted some very choice quotes and excerpts from her writing that made me give into curiosity and borrow some of her works from the library A few other times when I ve tried erotic fiction I end up laughing because the writing is just so cheesy and phrases are so overused but I don t think I once laughed in ridiculousness when I read this book My cheeks flushed regularly going through the book though, for [...]

    22. A memoria forse il primo vero libro erotico che ho letto, nel senso di appartenente in maniera inequivocabile al genere.L erotismo in un libro lo apprezzo, a volte in una lettura lo ricerco, ma deve essere uno dei tanti ingredienti che costruiscono la storia, se diventa un monoargomento o un libro di genrere, una indigestione di situazioni erotiche allora la cosa finisce per annoiare.Detto questo Il delta di Venere ha, innanzitutto, un titolo esplicativo e perfetto in alcune parti una lettura fo [...]

    23. So I d like to justify the two stars by firstly saying that I in no way found this ok In No Way I d just hate to give it one, given the eloquence of Nin s writing It d be brutal to shred it completely Nin is masterful, stylish and even tantalising with her pen The passages are strikingly exuberant in feel Ethereal, almost There s an almost unbelievably aesthetic feel to the book as a whole, so much so that it feels like the stories themselves are quite veiled, which is a peculiarly lovely thing [...]

    24. Ana s Nin s Delta of Venus was published posthumously in 1977, but was largely written in the 1940s It contains 15 short erotica stories, all of which were written for a private collector And it is what it is really, a mixture of stories from various character viewpoints, some of which tie in with each other, detailing a variety of sexual encounters, passions and desires.The one thing about erotica is that you can t really read too much of it, because it just gets boring after a while probably p [...]

    25. I had to make this book one of my must have list of book So far it s the best erotica literary writings I ever read It literally makes you wet yourself What really intriguing is what Anais explain in her preface which adapted from her diaries Doing it for a dollar a page, which apparently create one of her best collections of erotic stories She needed the money to pay her and her friends living expenses, which she described that Everyone around me irresponsible, unconscious of the shipwreck How [...]
