Dan Brown is arguably one of the lamest authors of all time, but he also wrote some of the best-selling novels of the 2000s. However you feel about his work, you have to admit one thing: he's very good at writing very bad sex scenes. If you’ve read any of the suspense author's books, you know that gross Dan Brown passages are just something you have to endure if you want to get to the heart of the mysteries his main character/author insert Robert Langdon is trying to solve. If you’ve never read any of his books, be warned - unsexy sex scenes from Dan Brown novels usually involve someone wearing a robe, and then propositioning the main character with absolutely no subtlety. It’s embarrassing to say the least.
The best thing about these creepy quotes from Dan Brown books is how you don’t actually have to read any of his terrible books to get the full picture. These Dan Brown quotes that prove he's never kissed a girl show you exactly who Brown is: an aging white guy who desperately wants to talk to a woman half his age, but is afraid of embarrassing himself.
Bedding A Yoga Master
Angels & Demons, Chapter 137: "Vittoria slipped off her robe. 'You've never been to bed with a yoga master, have you?'"
It seems unlikely that Brown has ever been with a yoga novice, let alone a master. Is there anything grosser than reducing someone to qualities that supposedly make them a better lover? That's not to mention how insulting it is to link yoga, often a spiritual practice, to base sexual gratification.
Ancient Phallic Symbols
Angels & Demons, Chapter 7: "She was being buffeted by the air currents but grinned and flashed Langdon the thumbs-up sign. Langdon smiled weakly and returned the gesture, wondering if she knew it was the ancient phallic symbol for masculine virility."
Real cool, Dan Brown. Not only is he letting everyone know that his man character is a total dork, but he's also shaming this (imaginary) woman for not knowing about ancient phallic symbols. Women really should start doing more research into how men talked about their genitalia in the 10th century.
Langdon's Carnal Reward
Angels & Demons, Chapter 137: "She ran a hand through her luxuriant hair, the neck of her robe falling open slightly. 'And now... I suppose you want your reward.' The comment took Langdon off guard. 'I'm... sorry?' 'We're adults, Robert. You can admit it. You feel a longing. I see it in your eyes. A deep, carnal hunger.' She smiled. 'I feel it too. And that craving is about to be satisfied.'
Why does Dan Brown think that everyone turns into a Bond villain before they have sex? Can you imagine if someone told you that they were about to "satisfy" your "carnal hunger"? You would probably jump out the nearest window.
Langdon Gets Sassy
Inferno, Chapter 60: "'Ah, yes,' Langdon said with a knowing smile. 'Who better than a bunch of celibate octogenarians to tell the world how to have sex?' Sinskey was liking the professor more and more every second."
Dan Brown is really patting himself on the back with this one. Never mind the fact that Langdon seems like the least sexually experienced character ever written.
