I agree with this. I read books that have a lot of sex in them, and also books that don't have any at all. I don't mind if the sex is graphic, as long as it is contributes to the plot/characterization and as long as the word "cum" is not used. Because then I feel like I'm reading porn or erotica written for an audience I don't belong to.
