It’s that time of year again, when the editors of the Literary Review gather all the cringeworthy scenes they can find and award one the Bad Sex in Fiction Award. Their winner will be announced Dec. 1, but we’d like to hear your opinions. Below are the relevant excerpts from all eight contestants, ranging from Morrissey’s debut novel to Lauren Groff’s critically-acclaimed Fates and Furies. Take a look (if you can stand it) and then vote on our poll at the bottom for your pick for the worst sex in fiction this year.
