In fact? Ewwwwwwww.

According to the AP Wire, Jonathan Littell's book The Kindly Ones (a prize-winning, best-selling, 900-page-long "epic" narrated by a fictional Nazi officer and originally published in French) has won Britain's Bad Sex in Fiction Prize. The offending passage describes a sex act—brace yourselves, guys—as "a jolt that emptied my head like a spoon scraping the inside of a soft-boiled egg".

D'you suppose it sounds better in French? I mean... how could it?

On the flip side, I am not sure that it could sound worse in French than it does in English. Seriously, yuck. :-P

Yeah, I kind of wanted to read the runners-up, but then decided my stomach couldn't take it. There are funny bad sex scenes, and then there are really, truly yicky bad sex scenes, and I think this was the latter.
