Is is really only a matter of taste or is it at all laced with homophobia? Or maybe something about the woman's comfort level with her own body?
I don't know. And, as I say elsewhere in this thread, I think it's good to try to analyze and understand kinks, but it's easy to fall into judgmentalism. What turns you on turns you on and there really isn't a moral character to fantasy, or a pointer from it to how one lives one's life. For the most obvious example, lots of women have rape fantasies, but that does not mean they want to be raped, yk?
Why do some women not want to read het sex scenes? I think it varies a lot. Some women who quite enjoy sex themselves don't enjoy descriptions of women having sex; I'm not sure why. Others talk about feeling *jealous* of the woman in the story in ways they don't with slash - that the idea that some other woman has "her" character impedes enjoyment. I do know the "Ewww - het" comments are very common in slash venues.
