>>138294420 You know how in the middle of a series, just as the romance is heating up, there's usually an arc where the characters separate? If you just make them have sex before that arc, it should strengthen the drama in the next few episodes instead of destroying the tension.
For relatively younger readers sex is generally a point of no return for characters, meaning it railroads them down a route permanently or makes them a sleazy scumbag like Makoto. This angers some readers and the series gets canned because nobody is buying it. This is especially true in Japan, with their innate obsession with pure idols and virginity. Mixing emotional investment and sex is a dicey prospect and sales clearly show that teasing relationships with ALL the girls keeps lots of people interested.
>>138294377 What do you define as having sex? As in characters who have been known to have sexual relationships with other characters or on-screen? If it's the former you might just need to watch more anime, there's plenty of characters who have been known to fuck, if it's the latter, just watch some porn.
>>138295282 Most sex is endgame for most relationships anon. Adding that would mean the deal is sealed with that character. If they don't have that relationship established already or if the author plans on messing with it.
>>138295334 >>Most sex is endgame for most relationships anon. Adding that would mean the deal is sealed with that character Not really, because people in relationships have difficulties or break up all the time.
How many people actually get married to their first love?
>>138295334 Wow, my statement is not clear. Let me fix this. >>138295387 >>138295427 >>138295451 How does a character just having sexual relationship change anything? I don't see how it affects the story. if it's not centered around that.
Good example would be Naruto, Naruto had the sex but it's still an awful story. >inb4 Narutard It was just an example
>>138295282 I like seeing a relationship in more than the linear way of "getting to the point where you fuck" The extreme focus on this sole act at "the end of the road" doesn't just bore me but also feels like a lack of creativity when it comes to story telling.
If you do want to tell a serious story about a relationship, I'd actually prefer it if sex would be a natural inclusion, one that doesn't get any special time or focus. I feel like it is usually better if you know that a sexual relationship exists and why not? Couples fuck, it's natural and doesn't need highlighting.
>>138295544 It doesn't for Naruto because it's not meant to be a romance/drama. Almost all aspects of romance in Naruto was forced.
I'm pretty sure everyone else is talking about animus where romance is integral to the storyline and how they'd like to see a more organic and realistic depiction of it rather than blue balling every time.
>>138295611 >more organic and realistic depiction of it rather than blue balling every time. Yeah but most writers aren't capable of that and I think it's retarded to say that the inclusion of sex is going to make it more organic. Simply having MC leave his girlfriend's flat in the morning gets the exact same message across. It all depends on how well the story and characters are set up in general. Most authors are shit and will quickly fall into very cheap territory. The question is when to show, and when not to show sex.
I think you misunderstood me a bit. I'm not asking for blatant sex scenes. I'm for alluding to and talking about sex instead of avoiding it like the plague or treating it as "end game". Your example of MC leaving GF's flat in the morning is something that I think a lot of shows could benefit from in terms of portraying relationship growth.
>>138295886 Not to mention the retarded arguments about whether something actually happened or not. >couple goes home together and leaves it in the morning >talks about the great night they had >T-they just watched TV, guise!
>>138294420 >In storytelling terms, sex is the endpoint of the relationship That's not actually true though - it's only true for bad storytelling by people who have no idea how to work a relationship into a narrative.
>>138296014 Except that it didn't. People still question whether or not they actually did even though it is obvious. It can't really be compared with what is being discussed her and Horimiya kind of fell apart afterwards anyways but that wasn't because they actually fucked.
