I december varje år utses en vinnare i ”Bad sex in fiction award” i den litterära världen. Priset som ingen vill ha delas årligen ut av tidskriften Literary Review. Avsikten med priset är att uppmärksamma dåligt skrivna, oengagerade eller helt onödiga sexskildringar i modern skönlitteratur för att motverka att fler skrivs. Årets utdelning är den 22:a i ordningen.

I år var följande nominerade;

The Snow Queen av Michael Cunningham
The Narrow Road to the Deep North av Richard Flanagan
The Hormone Factory av Saskia Goldschmidt
Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage av Haruki Murakami
The Age of Magic av Ben Okri
The Affairs of Others av Amy Grace Loyd
Desert God av Wilbur Smith
Things to Make and Break av May-Lan Tan
The Lemon Grove av Helen Walsh
The Legacy of Elizabeth Pringle av Kirsty Wark

Den nigerianska författaren Ben Okri, som tidigare vunnit Booker-priset, tog 2014 hem vinsten efter att i en ny bok bland annat ha jämfört en mans smekningar av en kvinna med att tända en glödlampa.

When his hand brushed her nipple it tripped a switch and she came alight. He touched her belly and his hand seemed to burn through her. He lavished on her body indirect touches and bitter-sweet sensations flooded her brain.

She became aware of places in her that could only have been concealed there by a god with a sense of humour. Adrift on warm currents, no longer of this world, she became aware of him gliding into her. He loved her with gentleness and strength, stroking her neck, praising her face with his hands, till she was broken up and began a low rhythmic wail. She was a little overwhelmed with being the adored focus of such power, as he rose and fell. She felt certain now that there was a heaven and that it was here, in her body. The universe was in her and with each movement it unfolded to her.

Somewhere in the night a stray rocket went off.

Okri vann i konkurrens med bland annat Richard Flanagan som i sin The narrow road to the deep north beskriver ett samlag i termer av en ömsesidig världsomsegling för att sedan avbrytas av att en hund dödar en dvärgpingvin. Ett citat från Wilbur Smith och boken Desert God;

Her body was hairless. Her pudenda were also entirely devoid of hair. The tips of her inner lips protruded shyly from the vertical cleft. The sweet dew of feminine arousal glistened upon them.
En annan av de nominerade var Saskia Goldshmidt som i ett avsnitt av ‘The Hormone Factory’ låter the beast found its way in;
I unbuttoned my pants, pushing them down past my hips, and my beast, finally released from its cage, sprang up wildly. I started inching my way back up, continuing to stimulate her manually, until the beast found its way in.
