>Often skip past it or at the very look away for a while
Am I weird? I'm not even baiting, I genuinely do this.
Nah, it's not that, though I'm not much into sex. It's more that I just get uncomfortable about the whole thing. It usually just feels gratuitous in films.
Also when there are extended scenes of kissing. We don't need to see that sort of thing. It's unnecessary.
I do the same OP. I actually check IMDB's parental guide before watching movies now and if it has too much sex in it I don't even bother watching.

>pretend to be asleep

>no one says anything
I get this, a lot of the time i dont really see the need for them to exist
For example, Jessica Jones, all the sex scenes in the first few epsiodes just made it seem like they were trying to make the characters super adult and practically ruined them straight away
Well I have flatmates what should I do ?
You've had puritanical dogma shoveled down your throat for so long that you believe it.

What are you basing this on?
Say you reduced a real person's life events down to percentages, and then the scenes in a movie, do you really think there's much of a discrepancy when it comes to sex and kissing?
Try to develop a healthy attitude toward sex before you drive yourself mad.
So why can't we see it in film? We see people waking up, brushing their teeth, and having breakfast.
Usually sex is significant in films too. It says something about the characters, maybe they've hit an important relationship milestone and this proves they're serious, or maybe it says the protagonist regularly has casual sex and doesn't want a relationship.
A film where we didn't get to see a character's quiet moments would be boring.
You could say that about plenty of common scenes in a film. Why show characters eating at a restaurant? Eating is a bit disgusting, and nobody likes to be watched while they're eating. Why not show them walking to the restaurant, film an establishing shot of the building, and then cut to the next scene?
Have to agree with >>64521398 right now.
Ever though that maybe you are meant to feel uncomfortable? The kids of today seem to be unaware that art is there to make you FEEL things, not just make you say "That was Bad Ass" over and over again whilst your insides die.
Name one movie where characters just eat for 10 minutes not saying anything. In any movie there's eating, they're also talking (just like in real life) and that dialogue is usually important

Oh you must be American. Being told sex should be kept secret, like it doesn't exist. Fuck me, we should openly discuss sex and the problems it can cause when done unsafely. It's 2016 bud.
You're actually normal OP.
Unlike pornography, which is designed specifically to be watched as a performance and be masturbated to, the sex between two 'fleshed out' characters and the simulated intimacy between them is supposed to be extremely personal and emotional and is definitely meant to make the audience feel something, most which is 'uncomfortable'.
Ask yourself this: Would you feel uncomfortable watching an actual real couple, in a real relationship, in the the real world having sex together from a voyeuristic viewpoint? I know i would. The same is true for fictional characters in movies and such.
The only people who don't feel uncomfortable about watching such things, are particularly sexually perverted people. And i will just add that that inn of it self isn't actually wrong either. It takes all types OP. You just aren't into it. Nothing wrong with that.
Actually, current year man, I'm a Brit. Raised with old fashioned (correct) values. There's a reason the increase of open sexuality in movies has coincided with movies being more vulgar and low quality.
can't relate to this post at all to be honest
quite a lot of films with intimate sex scenes and shit also have very to the audience identifiable and sort of self-insert characters that the audience can relate to, you're either meant to be cheering them on or just self-insert into an identifiable character/the character whose narrative the entire thing is revolving around
Well the UK is basically a poor man's US so makes sense you'd be ashamed of your own sexuality. But seriously, mate, sometimes it is gratuitous and stupid. But in a lot of films it just makes sense, sex is a big part of a relationship you know.
> sex is a big part of a relationship you know.
You have your friends that you would die for, but you don't fuck them, so sex is not that big of a part in relationships
>Well the UK is basically a poor man's US
Yes, let's keep pretending sex doesn't exist and not tell people about it. It has no place in a lovestory between 2 persons in movies. Also we should never talk to kids about sex, ever. They should only see sex in porn, because that'll teach them how to properly have sex.
