Twelve years after it was first published, The Joy of Writing Sex remains the classic writer's resource on creating compelling sex scenes. Elizabeth Benedict covers all the issues, from the first time, to married sex and adultery, to sex in the age of AIDS. Her instruction, supported with examples from the works of today's most respected writers—among them, Dorothy Allison, Russell Banks, Alan Hollinghurst, Joyce Carol Oates, Carol Shields, and John Updike—focuses on crafting believable sex scenes that hinge on freshness of character, dialogue, mood, and plot. In this revised edition, Benedict addresses the latest sexual revolution, intimacy on the Internet; adds new interviews with Edmund White, Darren Strauss, Stephen McCauley, and other writers; and updates her selections to include examples from the best fiction of the past few years. The Joy of Writing Sex proves again that when it comes to books, quality is what counts.

One minute she was vowing to keep secret the fact that she had spotted her husband on a compromising video compromising in a professional way, not a personal or sexual way and the next, she was thinking about sex. As a writer, it's my job to figure out what this moment was like for these two people, what it meant, how it unfolded, if it was an experience that made them happy or sad or satisfied or shamed or any one of a thousand emotions.
