on't put the crux of the plot in the middle of the homoerotic kissing scene you've been building to for three books: nobody will notice

However, the reason people skim the sex scenes is that they don't do anything. (funny, in my fiction I never use italics almost but in comments and stuff I use them a lot)

I think sex scenes should always do something important -- maybe not the crux of the matter, but something important -- even if it means that some readers have to go "huh?" a few pages later and read back to figure out what just happened.
