Bad Erotica
May 26, 2003 2:21 AM   Subscribe

His Turgid Member, Her Heaving Bosoms, My Gag Reflex: There's nothing like really bad erotica to take your mind off sex. There's no sentence like "Brooke ripped off Randy's mesh jersey. His abs were undulating hills, with heavy underbrush around his navel." to make you think of lint and tumbleweed. For our undelectation, Nerve.com's readers have chosen the very worst examples of lurid chastity-inspiring unsexiness. [Safe for work and Viagra-proof thanks only to downright descriptive incompetence. If you're excited by any of this, seek psychiatric assistance immediately.]

Anaesthetic throat lozenges.

*cough*

Or so I'm told ;)

And somehow incorporating the term "Anaesthetic throat lozenges." into your erotic fiction is pretty much guaranteed to make it unsexy, as well.

Mig's posts always turn me on ;-)

Well, I made it halfway through number 2...

AAAAAAAAAAAH!

RUN AWAY! RUN AWAY!

FLEE! TO THE TREES!!!!!!

"It's so big!", Jenifer insinuated, as Marvin the paranoid android wriggled wildly, and plop went her flatulant card catalog into her crusty roody-poo candy ass."

... and of course you'd have to mention that the strong smell of eucalyptus or menthol or whatever would more than likely knock out the intended participant, or at the very least, make at least one of their eyes water.

Unless of course that floats their particular boat, in which case, that goes into an area of erotica that I'd rather not paddle in, thankyouverymuch.

Randy's sex marmot yearned to escape.

Fantastic! All other euphemisms are now redundant. I do hope Joel Veitch takes note - I can almost see it now. And I really wish I couldn't (thanks Miguel, this will keep me, erm, entertained all morning..)

Although the ALF fanfiction amused me, I have read worse. Much. Much. Worse.

And the RPG Guide To Sex cracks me up.

"... he freed my puppies from their underwire kennels."

Heh. Funny.

I couldn't get past the first paragraph of the first one. I can't imagine where it went from there.

No, wait, maybe I can.

Yeah but how often do you actually get to see the word *turgid* used.

Don't forget the British version: the Bad Sex in Fiction Award.

Jap's?

Maybe we could have a Worst "Featured Personal" award, too?

Semi-frequently when discussing literary wanks. ;)

. . . Alf bucked and a jet of jism burst from Herbert's eye and . . . into the chip dip . . .

I don't kow about anyone else, but I just hate it when that happens.

I much prefer the Bad Sex in Fiction awards linked above, because of their limitation to actual published fiction. Writing bad sex scenes deliberately for a contest isn't hard. Finding bad sex scenes in slash is ridiculously easy. Finding sex scenes that aren't bad in anything even tangentially related to D&D approaches the impossible.

On the other hand, Miguel's post text is one of the most amusing things I've read in weeks.

Well if you are concerned about the possibility of suffering from sentimental breast syndrome Zulujines, you could always change their attitude.

Read this:

"My name is Julio, Julio Gottstein," he said, his smoldering eyes aflame in the victory he would soon celebrate. "And soon, I shall have you."

Now read it again.

Again.

I took deep breaths, and the heaving of my nipples against my tight cashmere sweater rendered them as erect as Dirk's rod used to get when he licked the perspiration from my armpit.... I was impaled on his love rod. The windshield was fogged up. The SUV was rocking. I leaned back against the dashboard and grabbed at the radio dial... I hadn't heard the extended version of "Freebird" for years, but he stuffed my love muffin while singing with Skynyrd.

Errr....
