This Week in Sex: Bad Sex Award, Booty Calls:

THE WINNER OF THE 2013 BAD SEX AWARD

Does the following passage make you flush with arousal or blush with embarrassment?

“Surely supernovas explode that instant, somewhere, in some galaxy. The hut vanishes, and with it the sea and the sands—only Karun's body, locked with mine, remains. We streak like superheroes past suns and solar systems, we dive through shoals of quarks and atomic nuclei. In celebration of our breakthrough fourth star, statisticians the world over rejoice.”

That’s a selection from Manil Suri's third novel, The City of Devi, this year’s “winner” of The Literary Review's Bad Sex Award, an annual prize awarded to the worst sex scenes in literature. Read more about the award and about some of the runners-up at Guardian.com. NOT HAVING SEX COULD KILL YOU

The bad news: not having enough sex might kill you! The good news: it’ll only kill you if you’re a fruit fly. Male fruit flies stuck in the friend zone after having been exposed to female sex pheromones aged faster, were unhealthier and died younger, according to a new study reported in the journal Science. The findings could shed light on how sex affects the health of more complex animals, like us. Get the rest of the details at Upi.com. SEXY ADVENT CALENDAR VIDEO WITH KELLY BROOK

Are booty calls and one-night stands the same deal? And how do “friends with benefits” figure into one’s sex repertoire? These are some of the questions addressed in a study published in the recent issue of the journal the Archives of Sexual Behavior. Dr. Peter Jonason surveyed 192 undergrads at the University of West Florida and asked them about booty calls, friends with benefits, long-term relationships and one-night stands.

Specifically, he asked students to rank how each encounter fulfills the following needs and functions: sexual gratification, social and emotional support, a "trial run" for a serious relationship and a placeholder to stave off boredom. It seems booty calls are for sex, but a friends-with-benefits setup is...for sex, but also to stave off boredom.

From stealing the sheets at night to wearing socks during sex, it appears there may be some surprising habits that drive wives into extramarital affairs. That is, if a new Internet survey from Victoria Milan, an affairs-themed dating site, is to be believed. Four thousand women participated in the survey and they reported that terrible dirty talk, paying more attention to the smartphone, wearing their socks during sex and not being open to more experimentation in the bedroom were all reasons to seek excitement elsewhere.
