British author Helen Fielding says she doesn't plan on spicing up her novels with more steamy love scenes despite the success of "Fifty Shades of Grey."
"Fifty Shades of Grey" became the best-selling book in British history this year with 5.3 million copies sold, but Fielding this week vowed she wasn't going to venture into the erotic themes E.L. James did in the current blockbuster, The Daily Telegraph said Saturday.
Its not that Fielding is a prude but the author of "Bridget Jones' Diary" is admittedly out of her depth when it comes to sexy narratives.
"If ever I wrote a sex scene, I would send it to friends for feedback...and, honestly, I'd never hear the end of it," Fielding told the Web site Mandrake.
The Daily Telegraph said Fielding's lack of confidence may not be misplaced. The newspaper noted she won the satirical Bad Sex in Fiction Award from the "Literary Review" a while back.
