Part of the problem perhaps is that people on both sides of the debate are often using terms too broadly. All superhero comics contain sexual content to some extent, as all superheroes have these "ideal" bodies and charisma, etc. Like I said, some comics present Batman / Catwoman's sexual relationship in a tasteful way (Dini is good at this) that doesn't distract or detract from the story or their overall relationship. Then there's THIS exploitative, fanfic-esque, unnecessary stuff. Its cheap, its bad writing, its inappropriate, and I'd argue it is actually disrespecting the characters to portray them in this pseudo porno way. But I've just stated my arguments and there's no point in retyping them all over again.
I haven't seen anyone suggest that sex across the board is inappropriate or a no-go for comics. If people here in this thread have said it, quote them on it and see what they say. If people in some other thread who we don't want to name have said it, then why bring it up? What does it contribute to the present discussion? Nothing that I can see.
