Books and Love Scenes

MissAdara MissAdara
Do you enjoy the love scene in books you read? Or do you just skip through them?
Personally, I just skip through them, they are so cheesy and a lot of the time comedic, that I prefer to get back into the actual story. A love of the time I feel the overall story would be fine without the ravishing and floating on waves of ecstasy .

Opinions?

It really depends on a book. Most of the time I would say yes, they are extremely cheesy, but in some books they are tastefully done and play important roles in the plot.

Depends on how well done they are. Some of the best ones are the ones where it only does the initial implication, then fades to dark

I will skip them too! Usually it's cheesy and out of place. I feel the same way about shows and movies.

I'm not really sure i've read many books with "love scenes," of the top of my head i can only think of is some from 1984, and those we're pretty important to the story line. Unless it's a book thats done in segments and you can skip whole chapters without it impacting the story much, like the Jungle Book or Arabian Nights, i may skip it if it's just something i cant get into. Otherwise i will read the whole book and try not to skip anything.

It depends on the book. If it's written well, I'll savor every word. Otherwise scan and get back to the story.

Sometimes they are cheesy, but more often than not I find that the books I'm reading don't have 'cheesy' love scenes. A lot of them aren't these detailed or erotic LOVE scenes. A lot of them are less detailed, more ambiguous, and are more like 'sex' scenes, where the narrator explains that they had sex with a person, and the sex is there to move the plot forward, not just to make the book sexy.
