Sexy Sex Scene

Gawker

“The queen sized bed was just under the open window, and the Egyptian cotton sheets rustled in the breeze. Rita’s creamy alabaster skin glistened in the moonlight. Tom reached for her. She moaned softly. He gently ran his hand down her back in one fluid motion, pausing at the small indent just above her behind, before proceeding further down to grab a handful of her curvy ass. He then changed his mind and his fingertips retraced their steps. After fumbling a moment, he undid her bra strap. Her nipples peeked out as if this were a sort of interactive striptease. One that wasn’t teasing, just stripping.

He leaned in and kissed her hungrily. She responded hungrily – flicking her tongue in and out of his mouth. Tom ached for her. She too, was horny. “

It is pretty hard to write a sex scene. I mean, if you include the phrases hungrily, horny, moaning softly, alabaster skin, and some body parts (preferably engorged and/or swollen), I guess you can pretty much guarantee yourself a bad one. How about a good one? I don’t know.

Anyway, all this is preamble so you can go check out the shortlist for the Bad Sex award, at The Guardian. I was surprised to see Russell Banks made the list. (Although he did use “creamy skin”, and “alabaster” to describe his lovers, so it’s probably warranted).

Thanks to the mentalfloss morning cup of links.
