Now see, this is where I have problems. You've got three essays out on this topic in about a week. And, you've written about almost all my points. So, really, why bother to write up my own p.o.v. ? Well, except that I'm going to anyway-partially because I have a multi-fandom perspective. :D
Still, I agree with most of your points and I fall somewhere in the middle on this. I don't want the characters infantile or overly feminine, and if they aren't going to bother with lube or some basic preparation, it's my personal opinion that that time will be the last time for those two characters. I'm not sure their 'love' can withstand being torn to hell in back in the name of expediency. But, I find myself sometimes falling into the trap of overly romanticizing the characters and situations. It's not something I do deliberately and I do try to fix it when I think it's inappropriate, but I'm also not a skillful enough writer to do things the way I mean to.
Anyway...all I wanted to say was "Hell Yeah Sister!" ;)

LOL! And here I thought you were going to be criticizing me for repeating myself, when I really have been trying to express different aspects (albeit related).
