La Bad Sex in Fiction Award, dont on peut traduire le nom par Trophée du mauvais sexe en fiction, est un prix littéraire britannique donné tous les ans à l'auteur qui a produit la pire description d'un acte sexuel dans un roman.

Le prix est représenté par un « trophée semi-abstrait représentatif de la vision de la sexualité dans les années 1950 »[1] et qui représente une femme nue drapée dans un livre ouvert. Il a été présenté chaque année depuis 1993 par la Literary Review, un journal littéraire londonien. Le prix a été fondé par Rhoda Koenig, un critique littéraire, et Auberon Waugh, qui écrivait, à l'époque, dans la Literary Review.

L'objectif avoué est d'« attirer l'attention sur l'usage grossier, insipide et souvent routinier de passages redondants de description sexuelle dans le roman moderne, et de le décourager »[2].
