Explicit Sex Scenes

Novelists, when their characters drive cars, never feel compelled to describe precisely what the physical actions of hands, feet, eyes, knees, elbows. Yet many of these same novelists, when their characters copulate, get into such detailed physical description you'd think they were writing an exercise book. We all know the interrelations between the right ankle and the accelerator when driving a car, and we needn't be told.

American crime novelist Donald E. Westlake (1933-2008), Dancing Aztecs, 1976
