Like a lepidopterist mounting a tough-skinned insect with a too blunt pin he screwed himself into her.

 

Like a lepidopterist? Seriously? I believe it's safe to assume this is the first time this particular word has been used in a sex scene. How incredibly UN-sexy. ;-)

That's just weird.

like an otter through wet sand

upturned like the nose of the loveliest nocturnal animal, sniffing in the night

She released his hair from her fingers and twisted onto her belly like a fish flipping itself

What's with the all the weird references to animals?
