Rated 5 out of 5 by from In my top 3! This is one of those mentally sumptuous books that enthralls, intrigues, entertains, captivates and delivers you. It is so freeing, absurd and non-judgmental that you fall in awe of each character regardless of how brief the story is. Anais is a heroic romantic/erotica writer and I'm so excited to continue on this journey of discovering the remainder of her work. Would recommend to everyone, prudes and overt sexuals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sensual I went into this book liking erotica, but never having read any by Anais Nin. I was pleasently surprised! The ideas she is capable of coming up with are amazing, if not a but perverse sometimes. I couldn't tell if some of the stories were true, or if all just a figment of her imagination. Either way, this was an interesting read. Anais Nin is able to put alot of detail about the smaller things into the stories, without making them become boring or dragged out. With alot of the stories I wish they wouldn't have ended so soon, but that's part of why they are so intriguing, it leaves you wondering about what could have been! Very well written as a whole, and hard to put down. Anyone who appreciates erotica should read Delta of Venus!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seriously Sensual This collection of 15 erotic short stories was very delectable to read! It covered a wide range of sexual proclivities, so I'm sure any reader would find Delta of Venus enjoyable. Some of the topics covered were quite taboo and even a little disturbing; however, the eloquent beauty of the words and the almost poetic flow draws one in enough to keep them reading. The lengths of the stories are varied. The shorter ones are perfect for reading to someone special. *wink wink nudge nudge* I found Delta of Venus to be genuinely erotic. The stories are refreshingly original, and they inspire the imagination of the reader. I often found myself wondering and imagining what happened next for the characters of each story after the story ended. The settings and characters are varied, but all are described in a lush, inviting, and salacious manner. Anais Nin has a way of making the reader long for these fictitious lovers with her sensual words. I would definitely recommend Delta of Venus!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tantalizingly Erotic and Fun This is a must read, better than any modern romance novel. Anyone lacking in marital lust should have their partner read this, it is amazing how a woman during her day could write such a piece and not suffer presecution for it. This novel is crude yet sexy and draws the reader into the moments. Definetely not for the faint of heart.
