When I think of slash (or het) as being unrealistic, it's when it features people madly in love who find total fulfillment in each other. They get together, and all their problems all solved! The end! If only the world really worked this way.
As for the sex - well, in het or slash, most fanfic sex really doesn't resemble any I've ever had, so I don't really see non-realistic slash as being more like het sex. I mean, I've never passed out from sex, yk?
"They get together, and all their problems all solved! The end!"
In other words, a chick flick.

I guess you've never had really, really boring sex :-). I don't think I've ever read a fanfic story in which anyone passes out during sex, although they sometimes fall asleep afterwards (something that I can attest does happen in real life).
