I mean, rather, sex in literature. Ahem.

Sex in literature, like sex in real life, doesn't mean what it used to mean. In the post-feminist and post-postmodern world, sex is so loaded with assumption (who's being exploited? who empowered?) that writers and readers censor themselves, regardless of gender or who (or what) we eroticize. We've reached a point where, in an orgy of political correctness, everything is true, and nothing is permitted.
