An old friend of mine once said this about the repetition (and gave me a bewildered look when I started laughing):

"Sex is the kind of thing you don't want to think about while you're doing it or it gets really strange. It's like plumbing or something."

Then again, anyone who can make it through a Robbe-Grillet novel probably won't mind. And sometimes the alienation created by scrutiny of sex becomes a statement on its own (J.G. Ballard's Crash).
