(Ha, for a minute I thought this was a Pretender secret, because thoughtful!Stock-Photo Guy looks a bit like Michael Weiss.)

That's pretty cool OP. Did you have that same reaction to makeout and sex scenes in movies and TV, or just to Reader insert fics because of the "you" ?

I'm not OP, but for me it depends. A lot of movie/TV scenes that are overtly sexual really bother me-- the ones where it feels like it's there to titillate the audience without adding anything of value to the overall thing can make my skin crawl. But if a scene is shot so that it's artistically beautiful, then I can appreciate it without it registering as 'sex' so much as just art.

From the nose up, I can totally see Michael T. Weiss there!

I'd totes go for a Pretender reboot if, like the X-files fan wishes, we could leave out all the mytharc conspiracy crap.

It's the vaguely "Caesar" haircut, I guess?

I get really awkward with sex scenes on TV, yeah :0

*pats gently*

Me too. I can't even watch kissing.

(But oddly, I have no problem reading well-written sex scenes in novels or stories.)

OP again, same. I think it's the detachment that comes with writing. Seeing and especially hearing things on screen make me uncomfortable (I especially hate loud kissing, i have to look away haha) but when it's written down I can get some distance and it's easier to read.

I'm another ace person who isn't OP. For me, if a movie/show can make me care about the characters' relationship and make me want them to get together, then I'll be totally into the onscreen sexytiems. But if it's more HBO-style sex, where it's like, "Here's another long scene of fucking to keep the viewers happy" then I just find it annyoing. Not repulsive, the way reader-insert is for me - just boring, and like, "Oh please, not more of this."

Although tbh, I despite reader-insert fic so much that I'm honestly not sure if it's just down to being ace. I kind of think I'd hate reader insert fic even if I weren't ace. I think it's just massively not my thing in every way. (Not hating on people who like it or saying they're wrong to do so, though.)

i thought most people weren't big fan of those on tv/movies regardless of ace

I thought it was Johnny Lee Miller at first glance.
