Let's talk about sex...
Or just plain fuckin'.
How much is too much when it comes to reading a story? I'm a strong believer that there should be no sex in a story that's unwarranted, and the level of description should also be in line with the story. Sometimes the genre "defines" the amount of sex the story should have--if any.
And then there's the question of contraception. Is it the responsibility of author to be PC and assure the reader that characters are practicing safe sex?
Is there really a reason for all of this or are we--as readers and/or authors--just conditioned to follow the herd and stay within certain boundaries?
