Welcome back to the Rocket Talk podcast! In this week’s podcast episode, Justin is visited by regular guest, Sam Sykes and first time guest, Tiffany Reisz. The trio discuss sex scenes, including a live reading of one of Joe Abercrombie’s sexual liaisons in his novel, Best Served Cold. Their conversation moves on to discuss why sex scenes can be rejected in some types of fiction and embraced in others.
