Up there with "five minutes of > squelching noise." Wrong. No one ever, ever, including hack porn writers, EVER, EVER wrote worse sex than Heinlein. With possibly the momentary exception of a long-forgotten 9-day wonder of the 60s or 70s called -The Harrad Experiment-. And I am something of an expert here. I should probably say, for members of this group, that IMO Sturgeon wrote bad sex too, though not, by leagues, in the same abysmal class. -alga --
