Not like the cliched movie scenes..

I am reading the book "Women in Sunlight" by Frances Mayes. A hefty 400+ pages. It is about three women who attended an open house for a fancy retirement community and decided that they were not ready for it, but forged a friendship and ended up renting a villa in Tuscany.

They develop new interests and meet new people. One of them is getting close to a man, they share interests in discovering the wines and the food of Italy and are planning tours that concentrate on visiting wineries and unusual restaurants.

Then they end up in his hotel room and he kisses her.

"The kiss was sweet, then ignited. I don't want this, she remembers thinking, to be like one of those cliched movie scenes where they start backing toward the bed, flinging off clothes, ravenous, and placed in impossible positions, impossible for the woman' pleasure anyway - backed up, standing against a wall and battered."

Interesting view. And, no, they did not.
