Yes, it's me :-)
No, I don't know Sarah Waters. Name me some of her books? Maybe I've heard of them...
About that lack of sex, I am thinking, is it posible that the sex-not-mentioned universe is *Rowling's* perceive world of this time? I mean, if nobody around her has that kind of idea... It's like I wouldn't understand, say, Punk, because it is not my style and I don't know any people of that style.
It's not like her kids would tell her, yes?
Oh and the narrative. It may be third-person, but it is still (mostly) Harry's POV.

I think it's definitely Rowling's view of the world - maybe not as it is, but as it should be? I don't know. Mostly I'm fine with children's books and comic books not having sex in them. I didn't mean to suggest otherwise. If the books were written for adults they'd be written with an assumption of some sexual knowledge, even without actual sex, as minisinoo
points out elsewhere in this thread.
Sarah Waters writes historical fiction with lesbian characters. Tipping the Velvet
is probably her best known. Fingersmith
is my favorite, but I think they're all wonderful.
