    There's an entertaining trot through the annual Bad Sex in Fiction awards in this link.

    My view is sex doesn't work particularly well in the written word, no matter how good a writer you are.

    I've also always thought it's not a spectator sport - pornography - but that's a different discussion.

    The awards are restricted to sex in general fiction, pornographic writing is excluded.

    Giles Coren the Times restaurant critic won a bad sex award as did the late A A Gill who was the Sunday Times restaurant and TV critic.
    Gill's was for a 'necrophiliac bestiality' scene in one of his novels.
    Makes one wonder about restaurant critics.
