Default And the "Bad Sex in Fiction" award goes to.....

..... the recently deceased Norman Mailer.

I've highlighted the relevant part in blue.

Who says romance is dead........???

(Reuters) - Writer Norman Mailer, a giant of
the American literary scene and twice a winner of the Pulitzer
Prize, was posthumously given the Bad Sex in Fiction Award on
Tuesday.
"We are sure that he would have taken the prize in good
humour," the judges said of the award to Mailer, who died on Nov
10 of kidney failure at the age of 84.
They paid homage to Mailer as a great American man of
letters and hailed his "innovative journalism, his combative
spirit and his love of life".
However, they could not resist awarding him the prize for a
graphic passage in his novel "The Castle in the Forest."
The award most dreaded by authors was established in 1993 by
the late Auberon Waugh when he was editor-in-chief of The
Literary Review. Previous winners have included U.S. writer Tom
Wolfe and British author Sebastian Faulks.
Mailer, renowned for his biting prose, penchant for
controversy and larger-than-life personality, had provoked and
enraged readers with his acerbic views on U.S. politics and the
wars in Vietnam and Iraq.
The winning passage, which leaves little to the imagination,
begins: "So Klara turned head to foot and put her most
unmentionable part down on his hard-breathing nose and mouth and
took his old battering ram into her lips."

Bukowski was a master of cynicism & bad sex....

Sex is interesting, but it's not totally important. I mean it's not even as important (physically) as excretion. A man can go seventy years without a piece of ass, but he can die in a week without a bowel movement. ~

Charles Bukowski

BTW - surely this is a sandpit thread?
