Jonathan Littell wins the bad sex award -- Britain's Bad Sex in Fiction Prize. The American author was cited by the Literary Review magazine for his "The Kindly Ones," a 900-page novel narrated by a fictional Nazi officer.

The bad sex judges noted a passage which compares a sexual encounter to battle with a mythological cyclops monster. Littell describes a sexual act as "a jolt that emptied my head like a spoon scraping the inside of a soft-boiled egg."

No comment yet from the bad sex author. But the Literary Review says his editor has accepted the prize.
