Bad sex award 2018: the contenders in quotes | Books | The Guardian

“Empty my tanks,” I’d begged breathlessly, as once more she began drawing me deep inside her pleasure cave. Her vaginal ratchet moved in concertina-like waves, slowly chugging my organ as a boa constrictor swallows its prey. Soon I was locked in, balls deep, ready to be ground down by the enamelled pepper mill within her.

    While there are some entertainingly bad examples in the article that made me smile/grimace (the Kismet one for example), I think the scoundrels excerpt is rather badly chosen by the awards committee. If you look at the book its from, its deliberately ridiculous, over the top and packed with stupid metaphors. So yes, it’s terrible, but I kind of think that was what the writers intended. It’s a parody.
