Sex is hard to write about because you lose the universal and succumb to the particular. We all have our different favorites. Good sex is impossible to write about. Lawrence and Updike have given it their all, and the result is still uneasy and unsure. It may be that good sex is something fiction just can’t do – like dreams. Most of the sex in my novels is absolutely disastrous. Sex can be funny, but not very sexy.
Martin Amis (via writingquotes)
do you ever feel like published authors should go read some fanfiction…
Clearly if three male authors (including one who has a legendary ego the size of a small planet) can’t do something well, it can’t be done? Pffft.
