The 2010 nominees for the eighteenth annual Literary Review Bad Sex in Fiction Award were announced this week. Here is the top list of books not recommended for poolside reading:

Freedom by Jonathan Franzen (4th Estate)
The Slap by Christos Tsiolkas (Atlantic Books)
The Golden Mean by Annabel Lyon (Atlantic Books)
Maya by Alastair Campbell (Hutchinson)
A Life Apart by Neel Mukherjee (Constable & Robinson)
Heartbreak by Craig Raine (Atlantic Books)
The Shape of Her by Rowan Somerville (W&N)
Mr Peanut by Adam Ross (Jonathan Cape).

My question is, where's the award for GREAT sex in fiction? What's your all-time favorite literary sex scene?
