Let's Talk About Sex

Go on. You know you want to. But wait! Wash your mouth out. This is a nice clean, family friendly place. You know that.

So head over to the fabulous Sooz Says Stuff blog where there's a whole month of debate on the subject of the relevance of sex in literature with guest posts on all and every aspect of the topic from writers of every stripe who do, or don't, write sex in their work. And that includes me - on July 17th.

There's a full schedule here.

Oh, OK. Feel free to talk about it here. Let me start with a simple question. Is there a difference between sensationalism and important questioning of stereotypes? In what does it lie? The content? The intent of the author? The perception of the reader?

If you want something get your thoughts started take a look around the Sensation exhibition from 1997, and google some of the discussion around it.
