Top Reviews (Amazon)

Writing is authors art,and she hopes to be published and make it big someday. She does eventually enjoy great success and acclaim as an author and goes on to teach at the college level. . But in the beginning, she earns some quick cash per page for what is supposed to be hard core porn for a wealthy private collector. She suspects, and I think correctly, that the anonymous customer is actually the publisher himself, that he is not simply the middlemen at all, but the actual collector. He is lusting for porn written by a woman, from a woman’s point of view, and he wants her to keep it short and to the point and “without the poetry”. He stresses over and over he wants porn written by a woman but WITHOUT THE POETRY. So she used various other authors X and R rated writings for inspiration and for subject matter, and eventually compiles enough short stories to fill this book. Are you curious by now? Well I’m not going to do a spoiler here, I have said enough. I recommend you read the book :)-R. Huntington

Delta of Venus joyously explores the art of human sexuality. Anais Nin’s writing style is at once lyrical and straightforward. While she leaves no doubt in the reader’s mind just what is going on, her countless love scenes are imbued with so much warmth and dignity that one could scarcely find them offensive. But most importantly, Anais understood that sex is nothing without emotion, and it’s the emotions of her myriad characters that cause the reader to turn happily florid with every page. She understood that while sex is not to be taken lightly, it’s certainly not something to be restrained, either. Lastly, of all the locales depicted in this collection of stories, she lends a special affection to Paris. I suspect that of all of Anais’ lovers, the City of Light was the dearest to her heart, to wit: “At five I always felt shivers of sensuality, shared with the sensual Paris. As soon as the light faded, it seemed to me that every woman I saw was running to meet her lover, that every man was running to meet his mistress.” and “But we were enjoying an orgasm, as couples do in doorways and under bridges at night all over Paris.”-Lance C. Panzer

This is not a book for everyone, there are some very taboo subjects within the pages (paperclips to bind those pages together make it easy to skip over those stories without ruining the rest of the book). Other than those few spots, the book is beautifully written and far wins out over the uncreative drivel found in most book stores and online, touching on the topics in these pages written so long ago.-Sarah Dean
