Wait…What ? – (Bad) Sex in Fiction

By: Aryanne Ferguson

While reading this article, I discovered that there’s actually an award given by the Literary Review for Bad Sex in Fiction!  Take a look at the article – you’ll get a good laugh and food for thought. Maybe some inspiration too.

So Reader, have you tackled the fine art of a well-written sex scene? I find them daunting to write, mostly because I remember all the times when I’ve rolled my eyes at a story’s sex scene and skipped a few pages. The first time I wrote one, I was 16 and knew nothing about sex, except what I saw on TV. Thank God I never had the misfortune of walking in on my parents. Anyway, it’s been years since I’ve written a sex scene.

Any advice, or should I start my research with a round of Fifty Shades of Grey?
