Thanks for weighing in. I'm certainly not suggesting that skipping over the sex is always cheesy (see comment to ringthebells
above). If it doesn't have a serious function in the story, I think the sex scene should be skipped, but I think that's true of other kinds of scenes, too, not just sex.
It's interesting what you say about liking a sense that something is happening. I love Barbara Pym's novels, for example, yet lots of people can't read them because they feel like nothing happens. I'm fine with the something that happens being kind of quiet and mostly in people's heads, if that's appropriate to the text...
