Brittany, that’s so interesting: If the sex is important enough to mention then show it! Your point about focusing on thinking and feeling versus the mechanics is a good one; this isn’t porn. And good points about what characters say and don’t say (or do and don’t do) also communicating how they’re feeling (in addition to the direct telling of their thoughts).

I have definitely read HEA scenes where I thought, “Yep, you should have ended this about three paragraphs ago.”
