Enjoying the finer things in life isn't just limited to indulging in expertly made wine and glamorous vacations; it can also include — at least for many bookworms — the art of reading a perfectly worded sex scene in a well-written book. While some might argue that TV and movies better portray these steamy encounters, avid readers know better. There's something even sexier about the descriptive language authors choose to use that make passages come to life before your eyes without any visuals at all, and if you've ever read a tantalizing book, you know just what we're referring to.

To back up this theory, we asked the readers in our POPSUGAR Book Club Facebook Group what novel held their favorite sex scene, and they delivered. From well-known reads like Fifty Shades of Grey to historical fiction titles that caught readers by surprise, these books contained some of the sexiest moments of all. Read ahead to see what books were mentioned, stock your bookshelf with some seriously hot reads, and get in on the fun by joining our book-loving community here!
