In Delta of Venus Anaïs Nin penned a lush magical world where the characters of her imagination possess the most universal of Delta of PDF desires and exceptional of talents Among. 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 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 of ideological clutter Also don t even think of the word porn This isn t one two hup hup hup gratification on the simplest level of human biological stimulation This is literatureFeeling free of all that Good Because the theme that I m working through in this review is this erotica is a genre of wasted potentialYou heard me Wasted potential Just look at its current representative in the popular media Not only is it a ripoff of a fanfiction of Twilight a book that is an advocate of both poor writing and abusive relationships it manages to compound both of those ualities to even horrendous levels Thanks to that book the misconceptions regarding the eclectic sexual activities have never been horrible or widespread I m not even going to try to discuss the writingNow let s return to the book at hand Delta of Venus was published in 1977 thirty four years before 50SoG Had the erotica genre been taken seriously at any time since then it could have been a game changer Perhaps not for the uality of writing which comes nowhere close to the masters but not only does it cover a wide variety of sexual situations in unflinching physical detail without the slightest hint of judgment it also touches on a huge number of issues that are present in how society treats sexual matters today Yes once again I am deconstructing societal issues If you don t like it shoo You have the rest of the Internet This place is mineThese issues include varieties of sexuality sociocultural gender constraints patriarchal oppression proper conductance of BDSM fetishes ranging from pedophilia to necrophilia to gerontophilia to myriad objects scents textures you name it Nin s probably mentioned it While her writing isn t the most prettily poetic thing under the sun what it does accomplish is show exactly what is running through the participants minds without once fetishizing abusive or bigoted aspects of sexuality as well as get the reader comfortable with parts of the anatomy that society for whatever reason has an attitude both puritanical and childish towards When you can t use the word vagina when discussing abortion issues in governmental procedures you know something s extremely wrong with the worldI know there is literature out there that deals with the uneasy aspects of sexual issues even some like Lolita that are widely praised by the literary community That doesn t change the fact that the genre of erotica is largely met with titters and contempt when it isn t banned outright and the majority of its literature is filled with connotations of unrealistic sexual dynamics borderline abusive situations and frankly just a lot of bad writingWhen it comes to sociocultural progress I see no catalyst powerful than that of literature especially literature that survives and thrives for centuries well into present times Out of every genre of literature the least likely to be taught in classrooms is that of erotica Maybe you ll get a book that involves rape or one that hints at homosexual liaisons or perhaps relationships deemed illicit by reason of race class or culture It is highly unlikely that a book that details sexual relations both healthy and unrestricted by stereotypes will ever make its way into the classroom without being met by childish behavior by both the students and their parents Not while sexual education ignores the ramifications of rape culture the realities of relationships fluid in both gender and sexual preferences and the harmful effects of the ideologically constraining concepts of masculinity and femininity No representation in classrooms leads to infantile reactions to it in reality leads to barely any incentive for writers to try their hand at it It s a vicious cycleSo next time you see someone with 50SoG inform them that there is a much better book out there called Delta of Venus that is not only erotica but classic erotica They probably won t ignorantly enjoy it as much as the former but one hopes it will get them thinking A much better end result in my mind Ethics the characters of her imagination possess The Discovery

These provocative stories a Hungarian adventurer seduces wealthy women then vanishes with their money a veiled woman selects strangers from a chic restaurant for private trysts an. This collection forces you to examine your pre conceived notions of erotica at least I did 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 dire 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 deviant behaviour She also plays this nasty little trick of 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 honey down 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 difficult to write sex well I m not going to say that she did that all the way through this book She definitely has her moments though and each reader s copy will have a dog eared page or two 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 Why do women make such a secret and mystery of it all They think it 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 these do not help our enjoyment of each other So what is erotica Does it serve to arouse sexually Or does it educate break taboos open awareness strip naked secret fantasies I think Nin s stories do 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 did I guess you could say I was seduced Damn
