Love Ain't Nothing But Sex Misspelled is a collection of short stories by author Harlan Ellison. It was originally published in hardback in 1968. Ace Books issued an edition in 1983. The original hardback edition has 22 stories and the reprint has 16. (13 from the original list and 3 new ones). Ellison removed 9 stories from the reissue since they are available in other collections and he had grown sensitive to such overlap.

The book was reissued again in 1997 by White Wolf Publishing as part of their Edgeworks series of Ellison reprints with a slightly revised table of contents, replacing 3 other stories and shuffling the order, moving "The Resurgence of Miss Angle-strap Wedgie" to the first spot where "Neither Your Jenny Nor Mine" was, and ending with "Punky & The Yale Men", where "I Curse The Lesson and Bless The Knowledge" previous placed.
