Author Manil Suri was awarded the Bad Sex In Fiction Award by Britain's Literary Review for his novel "City of Devi". The annual prize is given to the book with the un-sexiest and cheesiest sex scene. It's a stiff, (tee hee), competition given how un-erotic most...er...erotica is. "City of Devi" contains an extended sex scene that Suri, a math professor, described using astronomical and mathematical terms. Hold on to your pants, here is an excerpt,
"Surely supernovas explode that instant, somewhere, in some galaxy. The hut vanishes, and with it the sea and the sands - only Karun's body, locked with mine, remains. We streak like superheroes past suns and solar systems, we dive through shoals of quarks and atomic nuclei. In celebration of our breakthrough fourth star, statisticians the world over rejoice."
