I only get it for the articles has compiled a list of 25 sexiest novels of all time. It includes some brilliant books like J.G. Ballard's Crash and In the Cut, along with some good trash like Peyton Place (Maine: The Way Life Should Be) and Judy Blume!

PORTNOY'S COMPLAINT? I remember laughing most of the way through that one; never thought of a kid freaking out because he got his own jizz in the eye as making for a sexy read.

I'm surprised that Stewart O'Nan's THE SPEED QUEEN didn't make the cut. Robbery, murder and bisexual women with a gym bag full of dildos...what more could you want?

I haven't read anything by Roth. I don't know why. As for The Speed Queen, I don't think sex had a lot to do with the story, or as much as in the other books on the list.
