If you’re not familiar with the Bad Sex in Fiction award, I can’t describe it any better than Jezebel magazine does:
[E]ach year the Literary Review has singled out an author who writes awkwardly enough about sex to convince readers that the winning author’s experience with actual sex acts has been limited to puppet performances put on by a middle school health teacher who had a very limited sense of irony.
This year, male nominees far outnumber females, an occurrence that isn’t unusual. In fact, only two women have won the undesirable award since it began in 1993.
So are men worse at writing sex than women?
