    WowI 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 goodSeriously 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

    A kaleidescopic array of tantalizing erotica An epidemic of erotic journals that's indispensable to the most insatiable of sex aficionados It is the best of its type; no doubt this may be the bible of this literary black sheep genre

    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 n

Delta of Venus

Parisian hatmaker named Mathilde leaves her husband for the opium dens of Peru Delta of Venus is an extraordinarily rich and exotic collection from the master of erotic writin 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 engaging chronicles of interconnected sexual episodes which I have to say took me by surprise as to just how explicit they were I was expecting lines like he fondled her breasts or he gently stroked her inner thighs whilst gazing into her eyes yes there are indeed lines along these lines two thirds of the time though it s mostly pornographic in detail which I won t go into detail on I am sure we are all old enough to get the pictureNin the madam of a house of literary prostitution in the 1940s was commissioned to write by an anonymous collector who demanded that she leave out the poetry of sex Thankfully Nin ignored him and her stories contain a strong sense of the poetic mixed with the sensual especially highlighted by her emphasis on the exotic both in character and locale another thing that surprised me was the fact just how well she wrote it s dirty but always engaging This enabled Nin to present a sexual freedom which was incredibly forward looking for the time and especially revolutionary from a female perspective Even now reading this in the 21st century still shocked me at it s content While the characters and their situations are fun and enjoyable it only really worked for me on the longer stories giving of a chance to take the characters in and Nin fills here and there with moments of pathos and yearning which are saved mainly for the second half of the book The final episode which deals with war breaking out and the dream coming to an end even has a Fitzgerald like uality which definitely outshines what went beforehand It s a bit over 200 pages in length but still felt overly long maybe down to the fact it did have a repetitive nature the word Penis seemed to get mentioned about a million times The last third I felt it s strongest pointFor me a three star read but when writing of sex at least the book did feature five star orgasms

In Delta of Venus Anaïs Nin penned a lush magical world where the characters of her imagination possess the most universal of desires and exceptional of talents Among these pr 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 fundamentally I just think this is a misunderstanding of the genre The whole point of erotica is often not so much to turn you on as to go to places that other writing cannot to break down taboos Like other kinds of genre fiction it should be mind expanding In the same way that for instance science fiction or fantasy tries to conjure up other civilisations in order to contextualise our own so erotica is the one genre which gets to look at social conventions one by one and imagine what would happen if they didn t exist or if they were systematically ignored The idea is to open you up to new experiences and it s often meant to be unsettling and challenging rather than arousing although certainly one key motive is to prompt that unexpected jolt from the reader where an internal voice says Whoa why do I find that idea so hot I thought I d dealt with all this in therapyHaving made the counter intuitive case that good erotica isn t necessarily sexy Exhibits A and B being de Sade and Bataille I should say that Ana s Nin is nowhere near as far along the scale as those two Her writing is well I won t say sexy because that s so subjective one man s boring theme exercise being another woman s dependable two am go to but it is definitely rich and sensual and I think there is a lot to admire about her prose style Here we go let s check out some hot Pierre on Elena actionHe was in France without papers risking arrest For greater security Elena hid him at the apartment of a friend who was away They met every day now He liked to meet her in the darkness so that before they could see each other s face their hands became aware of the other s presence Like blind people they felt each other s body lingering in the warmest curves making the same trajectory each time knowing by touch the places where the skin was softest and tenderest and where it was stronger and exposed to daylight where on the neck the heartbeat was echoed where the nerves shivered as the hand came nearer to the center between the legs This is typical of her approach which makes use of a lot of short simple clauses either separated into different sentences fairytale like or strung together with semicolons into long dreamy bouts of poetic description She applies this ruthless sensuality eually to the sex and to the moments of violence or sadism that crop up in the book I am far from the world s biggest Ana s Nin fan but I do think it is important that we have a woman finally writing about this kind of thing rather than what we had for hundreds of years previously viz men guessing what women thought about it I m thinking John Cleland Pierre Lou s et hundreds of alNin always prompted a lot of varied reactions from other women some thinking Finally someone is saying it and others being like Whoa there speak for yourself sister Meanwhile men s excitement was split between the stuff they recognised women think like us and the stuff that seemed new women don t think like us I do think it s interesting that you can draw a line from Delta of Venus in the 1940s right through to let s say Nancy Friday s Women on Top in 1991 and see that most of the themes have barely changed at allI don t think Delta of Venus is a great book but I do think it s an interesting and important one and I have a real soft spot for it Of course in real life Ana s Nin was as mad as a box of frogs but she was the right person at the right time and I like a lot of what s in here as the reviews show it still has the power to challenge people today when you might think the whole thing would have seemed rather pass Don t burn someone s genitalsit is NOT OK says one reviewer earnestly Well yes fair enoughit s just as well then that this isn t fucking reportage it s a piece of creative writing Jesus Now if you ll excuse me I ll be in my bunk going over page 117 again
