Sex: As Bad as It Gets

We’re coming near to a special time of year, when the Guardian passes out its Bad Sex in Fiction Award. They look at all the reputable “literary” authors out there, and decide which of them wrote the worst sex scene.

The competition isn’t exactly stiff, if you get my meaning. Here are last year’s nominees. Ben Okri won it, but I don’t know how anything could beat the twitching fairy penguin of Richard Flanagan.

What would an alien from another planet think of all this? Believe it or not, we don’t have to wonder. They aren’t impressed.
