    Been thinking on this one. Does anybody write love letters any more? I compose them sometimes in my head, but I never actually write them down - let alone send them.

    And for those who think letter writing is prissy and old-fashioned, check out this stuff that James Joyce wrote to his wife, Nora Barnacle.

    OH MY! SO DIRTY!

    I wrote one to my sweetheart Husband last week in celebration of our 28th Anniversary of "Happy I met you day". Still feels like yesterday, when we first met. :)

    The letters are great reads. I never would have thought that ppl spoke that way back then. I thought it was porn that caused that. LOL

    It was real eye opener for me, too. I varied between thinking, "That's pretty hot" and "Holy shit! This is hilarious!"

    It's Ye Olde Tymes Smut. Hahaha!

    Goodnight, my little farting Nora, my dirty little fuckbird! There is one lovely word, darling, you have underlined to make me pull myself off better. Write me more about that and yourself, sweetly, dirtier, dirtier.

    My boyfriend and I write a love letter every week. Of course we chat online and text as well (and see each other at weekends) but there is something special about a letter. It just means so much more especially if you make an effort with them, which we do.

    I always try to find beautiful paper and envelopes, perfume them and seal them with kisses and wax.

    He some times writes poems, some funny, some serious, writes amazingly beautiful letters and does all sorts of funny or adorable things.

    It's such a great thing to do. Even if you do not live apart you should do it!

    You are such an unapologetic romantic, as am I. My wife has a fifty year old letter, tattered and worn and yellowed, that I wrote to her while we were engaged but apart. She says it's her most prized possession.

    I want to add to the first reply. There's a huge difference between what a 20 year old would say in a love letter, and the tone and substance of a love letter from say, a 50 year old to another 50 year old. I think as you grow older, you are a little more cautious about letting your heart hang out there.:)

    In my 50 yrs, I've written exactly 0 love letters. Before I met my wife, I wasn't in love, just lust...and in that case, you don't want a paper trail. After I met my wife, we weren't separated long enough to warrant letters.

    James Joyce was a dirty fucker indeed!
    I had heard of these letters but never read them but now in some way wish I had not because they hold such visceral and morbid fascination of a train wreck along with acrid smell of oozing blood and diesel fumes.
    Porn existed well before the 21st century.

    Well, yes and no. James Joyce was known to write stuff that could make more "refined" people faint. OTOH, and from about the same time, historians recently examined Fridtjof Nansen's (a famous explorer and humanitarian) letters to a lover, and found "selfies" that included, among other things, dick pics :D

    My great grandfather read the dirtiest book he could find, the bible. So much twisted and deranged crap in there.

    And the Kama Sutra is another prime example of ancient "dirty" texts... History is full of them!
