La Conspiracin Reptiliana dTaboo material functions fantastically as the spice that tips us in and out of our complacency and into theeeper animal parts us that love to be shocked allowing and out of our and into the Visitor deeper animal parts of us that love to be shocked allowing to enjoy the rest of the tales like we re getting away with something even absolutely naughty than it really might beSeriously if every erotic writer or if ANY writer including a sex scene might take a page out of her book so many of the greatest crimes against sex might be rectifiedSeriously people this is Literature plain and simple with a freedom applied to women s sensuality that is really uite brilliant It should be studied applauded and copied AlasI hope her writing is always remembered 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 appealingepending 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 Breakfast In Bed 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 theyidn 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 Azimuth The Interscission Project 2 do I find that idea so hot I thought I ealt with all this in therapyHaving made the counter intuitive case that good erotica isn t necessarily sexy Exhibits A and B being e 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 Just Joey dependable two am go to but it isefinitely 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 at the apartment a friend who was away They met every ay now He liked to meet her in the arkness 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 Commodore Amiga 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 intoifferent sentences fairytale like or strung together with semicolons into long How To Stop Worrying dreamy bouts of poeticescription 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 Intaglio 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 womenon t think like us I Duet Or Duel do think it s interesting that you canraw 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 White Fang don t think Delta of Venus is a great book but Io 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. Sence of female sexuality in a world where only love has meaning Her second volume of erotic writings Little Birds is also published by Pengu.

because it s at once hilarious heartbreaking REAL 355Let 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 too here with the word erotica Erotica erotica erotica erotica erotica Run through that a few times if you haven t su AUTHOR WEBCAM Hi there my name s Anais what s yours Oh er hi Anais My name s Pau Manny My name is Manny Hi Manny How are you tonight Oh I m fine thank you Er you have a great laptop there Why thank you It s a Lenovo Ideapad Do you think it looks cute Ohyes You should see the things I can Olivia Joules And The Overactive Imagination do with it

really well You know if you have a publisher we could complain together Could you could you compose some erotica right now Of course I could Manny Now would you like that to be in long luxurious leisurely sentences with metaphors clustered like grapes hanging from a vine turning golden pale in the Tuscany sun Or would you like it to be urgent short sharp like a James Ellroy sex Fomorian Earth Star Borne 1 doll no word over four letters Please justo what you feel you re into Anais Why thank you Manny you re a gentleman All right Let s see now Tricky oneIs there any way to write well about sex Too much metaphor and the words themselves are Bob The Castaway Or The Wreck Of The Eagle 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 andifferent sexual kinks also come into play It s a fine tightrope to balance on And it Wandering Willies Tale disturbed me early on with the mention of children oh God this better not be anything like 120 Days of Sodom thankfully not what follow This collection forces you to examine your pre conceived notions of erotica at least Iid If you think you ll start reading this all respectable in your best readerly librarian s glasses then a few pages in change into something comfortable and finish in ire need of the coldest shower ever you re probably wrong There s something for everyone here and I mean EVERYONE including necrophiliacs pedophiles sadists and those with any number of other kinks Yuck right Yuck except you can t really extricate yourself that easily Nin turns the reader into a voyeur observing and therefore a passive participant in all kinds of eviant behaviour She also plays this nasty little trick of All About Ashoka The Great drawing you into something that looks sexy but then with a high pitched cackle punishing you with a shocking and vile ending Hahaha she says Getting turned on are ya Here s a knife in your crotch No I m not even exaggeratingI read this collection slowly one story per week which I think is the best way to read Nin s work Read any uicker and it will be like pouring a whole jar of honeyown your throat sickeningly sweet and what a mess I found the shortest stories to be the most successful because they are focused and pack a punch that I appreciated as time went by The longer ones tend to have sexy scenes but are less effective because they meander from encounter to encounter without much connecting them I got the sense that she was being paid by the page in those stories and she wasIt is so ifficult to write. In Delta of Venus Anais Nin conjures up a glittering cascade of sexual encounters Creating her own 'language of the senses' she explores an

Sex well I m not going to say that she id that all the way through this book She efinitely has her moments though and each reader s copy will have a og eared page or two Livia Or Buried Alive The Avignon Quintet 2 depending on what floats your boat I think we continue to read Anais Nin s work because yes she was one of the first women to write this way And also because there s an unabashed crazy let s face it she was loony as a fruitcake honesty about her A woman writing honestly about sex That will never lose appeal As one of her characters says Whyo women make such a secret and mystery of it all They think it Mehmed Ali destroys their mystery but it is not true And here you come out and say just what you felt It is wonderful And the female character responds I believe in saying it There are enough mysteries and theseo not help our enjoyment of each other So what is erotica Does it serve to arouse sexually Or The Walking Dead Book One The Walking Dead 1 12 does it educate break taboos open awareness strip naked secret fantasies I think Nin s storieso all these things Though I often found myself saying but YUCK now that I ve read the collection I m not at all sorry I Resilient Post Disaster Recovery Through Building Back Better did I guess you could say I was seduced Damn 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 toiscover 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 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 Question Medica Nueuamente Ventilada dudeecades later takes custody of his teenage son and aughter Then he fucks em A ifferent Innovative Turkey Hunting dude burns some lady s cootch with a hot pipe Anotherude helps some man take a Glorious Morning Comrade dead body out of the river and then he fucks theead body while water pours out of her orifices A lady rides a horse bareback and gets all horny from the feel of the horse s rough coat against her clit etcEw right I mean she A Practical Guide To Usability Testing does have some good stuff in the book but honestly it s so overshadowed by the ick that it s hard to lose oneself in the writing That being said I ll admit that the reason we read Anais Nin in 2009 is to gain some perspective on the history of erotica so than for sexy fun times There s nooubt that Nin was remarkable after all she s female working in a male In Search Of A Soul dominated industry but her writing is flat and stale kinda like this review Very few of her stories were fleshed out and I found that she was missing the intense emotional connection I expect from a woman writer the poeticism is noticeably absent I m completely and utterly The Dynamic Genome disappointed Maybe I set my expectations too highHere s the blurb on the back of the book this edition published in the 1970s Thirty five years ago Anais Nin created the female language for sexuality Sheid it for a wealthy male patron for 100 a page He ordered her to leave out the poetry but she simply couldn t The publication of Delta of Venus now makes available to the rest of us the seductive erotic and full bodied nature of her writing And it reveals Anais Nin as a woman ahead of her timeWell Mr or Ms Blurbist you couldn t be farther from the truth Or further Whatever WowI mean I had never heard of this until recently when I had been The Life And Adventures Of James P Beckwourth dared to read it and yes I knew that I was getting into heavy erotica but I hadn t expected it to be soamn goodSeriously I m not ashamed to admit that I was almost completely unable to stand up Books To Build On during most of the read and because I was using text t0 speech that mean being rather unpleasantly surprised as I was up and abouturing my ayI wanted to scream out Oh come on or This isn t Fair at random people as I was reading And then at various moments I pondered the great mystery OF WHY SO MEN DON why so many men on read this of romance It s very easy my ear women In fact s extremely hard to hide the fact Forget about all the scoffing and the hems and the haws and all the condescending humor that jerky men use to explain why they on t read this stuff It s all baloney This book is full of really good stuff Extremely good stuff from the pure writing the interweaving themes and characters and the way that the individual stories make up a much grander story of sexuality right Spank down the purely expert and sensual eroticism of the sex acts themselves I ve never read better but I ll admit that most of what I ve read has really been uite horribleEven so I m amazed at how sensual she can turn all these kinds of turns or even theirection she takes them So many of my own sensibilities were shocked and Charleston Jazz disturbed as I read a few particularlyifficult scenes but as a whole the entire book was truly amazing
