Much as I love George Pelecanos, I wish he'd cut all of the sex scenes out his books. This is from when he was nominated for the Bad Sex Awards a couple of years ago:

Quote
She tickled my anus as she licked my balls and shaft, and slathered her tongue on my helmet. I laced my fingers through her hair and closed my eyes.

"Go."I said.

I stopped breathing and, like her, invoked a high power.

Most of them read like the Marlboro Man having sex, and nobody needs to read that.

In all honesty, let's just call a cock a cock, a fanny a fanny, and a fuck a fuck. Bad sex writing is usually the stuff full of pretentious or just plain daft symbolism or metaphors - 'my Inner Goddess is beating out a Samba' and such shite. In fact, the average writer of fap fiction in the Mayfairs and Men Onlys of the day in the 70s and 80s was generally a better author than any of these lofty twots.
