“So Klara turned head to foot and put her most unmentionable part down on his hard-breathing nose and mouth and took his old battering ram into her lips.”
That’s the passage from Norman Mailer’s “The Castle in the Forest” which recently won him (posthumously) the 2007 Bad Sex In Fiction award. And really, it’s a doozie. I mean, look at those descriptions—”unmentionable,” “hard-breathing,” “old battering ram”—come on Mailer, give it some spice, some pizazz. And please, leave the battering rams for your medieval war epics.
