I am Consumed with Sex

As I've mentioned before here, I gave up sex for Lent. This included many many things under that banner, and I'm telling ya - this is the longest 40 days of my fricken' life. In another way, 'tis good. I've never had so many offers per say (of course I can't take them up but hey, ya can't have everything), and I am finding how sensual life can be. Even the wind can be kind enough to love you.

But I've digressed. I do that a lot.

I was thinking last night at work about sex scenes in books. The two most memorable (for me at least) are completely different. The first was in How Stella Got Her Groove Back When Stella first sleeps with Winston - the scene goes for about three pages. But the way she wrote it - it really grabbed me. No paragraphs, barely any full stops. It was breathless, and exciting, and it was like you were feeling through her skin. The second most memorable sex scene is the exact opposite. In one of the Stephanie Plum books she finally sleeps with Ranger. :sigh: From memory it's three sentences. Maybe even only two. And I gotta tell ya, they were elegant and concise and said much without saying anything. There was so much she could have said, but she knew her readers well enough to give them a hint of what Ranger :sigh: could do without ruining the readers verison of him. I've seen grown women get into arguments about Ranger :drool and sigh:. He be Da Man.

So, I'm asking those out there what is your most memorable sex scene. What caught your eye? Recommend me anything - from movies, to books, to fanfic.
