    This is a short collection of porn some written by Anaïs Nin. That one word "porn" and the fact that it is not currently available for customers in the United States is all many of you need to know, please check helpful and move on. How much of this book is Ms. Nin's work and how much was contributed by her "friends" is not specified. Given that her friends included Henry Miller and a wide variety of the literati of post-World War I France, this information could be a story in itself.

Given that her friends included Henry Miller and a wide variety of the literati of post-World War I France, this information could be a story in itself. Anaïs Nin was one of the better modern female writers. She was better than this book. Even her porn was better than this book. It would be nice to say that this is sexy based on a woman's point of view but I'm not prepared to make that presumption. The collection was at the request of a male money man. The title should be self-explanatory. Each of the short stories in this collection follows a slightly different model of erotic storytelling. This is a good thing as it lends variety. The selection entitled "Loves Encyclopedia" parallels and clearly is meant to satirize the same discussion in the Sir Richard Burton translation of The Perfumed Garden. This section is the best chapter of this book. Should this volume again become available, at the price I paid (less than a dollar). This selection provides the highest portion of the value of the rest of the collection.

    I read about half of this. I made it through the stories, but I just couldn't with the Encyclopedia of sex. No rating for this because, while I thought the writing was wretched, it is from the 40s and maybe that was how erotica was written at the time. What do I know? I could see of the language as precursors to some of the super-cheese I still see in the occasional bodice ripper, but can't say I enjoyed it here any more than I do in more modern works (less even).

I was also repeatedly dismayed at the stories themselves. We have a 5yo boy being molested. We have a woman being drugged and raped, then taken advantage of by a second man. We have numerous men getting women drunk to take advantage of them and we have a married woman in an orgy with not-her-husband (though that was the least eyebrow raising one of the bunch). Plus, with the exception of the orgy, every sex scene is essentially the same. Nope, none of them tickled my fancy in the least. I don't think anyone believes Anaïs Nin wrote this. I know if thought this was a representation of her work I'd never pick another one up.

    My dad bought this for me as a Christmas present a few years ago. Silly me, I should've been more specific when I requested books by Anaïs Nin that what I meant were her diaries. Anyway, he thought the book was about art... (Also, this wasn't the first time my dad had bought a family member an inappropriate gift by accident.) Most of the stories aren't even written by Nin. I believe that maybe one or two are, though. Read for cheap thrills. Don't buy for your children. My dad bought this for me as a Christmas present a few years ago.

    This was an interesting but tough read. As this erotica was written in the 1940s, there are many concepts and scenarios which would be considered very rapey by today’s standards (and I hope by their standards too). There’s lots of talk about getting women drunk so they comply with sex, there’s drugging, a lil pedophilia, stalking, and the encouragement of perseverance until she says yes. I learnt how to restore my virginity, and that if you lie on your left side during sex you’ll have a girl, an This was an interesting but tough read.

I learnt how to restore my virginity, and that if you lie on your left side during sex you’ll have a girl, and on the right side: a boy. Apparently putting a sponge soaked in vinegar up your vagina or flushing your vagina after sex are great ways to avoid pregnancy. I doubt many of these stories were written by Anaïs Nin as many are definitely from the male gaze. Would only recommend to be read with a grain of salt and as an insight into dated views on sex and contraception.

    It is a shame that Anais Nin's name is attached to this book as she certainly didn't write the majority of it. Little Birds this is not. I suppose this could best be described as old-timey 1940's smut. It starts with the best, "Alice" and the worst, the unbearably bad "Esmerelda". The Encyclopedia is amusing with just the right touch of pseudo science. It is a shame that Anais Nin's name is attached to this book as she certainly didn't write the majority of it.

    I'm entirely sure Anais Nin didn't write this garbage and I'm gratified to see that Wikipedia says she "apparently" is the author but it's actually anonymous. I shudder to think about someone reading this as their introduction to Nin! What kind of credible writer would call a penis a "dagger" or breasts "bubbles"? That kind of shit gives the written word a bad name.

    If you've read Delta of Venus, then you'll be disappointed to read this. Some of the stories are borderline smut. However, I enjoyed reading Alice and Love Encyclopedia, which is fucking in lay man's terms with the help of Science. If you've read Delta of Venus, then you'll be disappointed to read this.

    I've only read Anäis's diaries before and found this cheap (or free) for my kindle. I certainly hope this wasn't really her writing...it was so bad, it was comedic - which is the only thing that kept me going.

    It's nice to see a dirty mind at work. This book must have been groundbreaking when it was published. It's still an very entertaining read. It's nice to see a dirty mind at work. This book must have been groundbreaking when it was published. It's still an very entertaining read.

    I like the first story. Delightful and sexy. After that one...not so much.
