Of course the sex can be in varying degrees. some just implied. all the way to explicit.

Yes, I think it's unrealistic that you're going to fall madly in love and get a happily ever after without throwing sex in there somewhere.  Whether explicit or implied.  I've read books with all levels of sex in them and enjoyed them all.

I prefer books that don't give a detailed description.

You bet I do, Charles! Everything from the chaste kisses to pulse-pounding erotica. It's all fun.

I am with Regina.  Romance without sex is like hot dogs without relish and mustard.

Absolutely! I adore a steamy romance. Sometimes it’s the best part of the book.

Of course sex and romance go together.  I do demand a story along with the romance and sex and poorly written story or sex deletes the book from further reading.

No, not really.  I dont often read romance though I am investd in the Stephanie Plum series which is a comic crime mystery series with a love(sex) triangle. And her grandma is pretty wild too!
