I have to confess something that is becoming increasingly difficult to hide: I'm a prude. When it comes to the moment in a book when it becomes steamy I tend to find it as difficult to get through as I once did when that sort of thing came on the TV when I was a teenager and my parents were in the room.
I'm not sure where this prudishness comes from. For a while I consoled myself with the belief it was because the writing in some cases was poor when it came to sex scenes. But the truth is that even when there isn't a problem with the writing, although that seems to be quite rare, I struggle.
