Default Re: Catwoman/Batman sex in the comics

I'm not sure if there has been other explicit scenes of Batman banging his love interests/supermodels, but I have come across one panel of Talia/Bruce making love and in comparison with the Catwoman/Batman sex scene, you can definitely tell the difference.

Even though Catwoman/Batman are fully clothed and Talia/Bruce are fully naked, the former is more ' pornographic' looking than the latter. I think it's that whole issue between classy love-making shots vs cheap porn-y fanart, and I think Catwoman/Batman's sex scene could have been done in a MUCH better way. Less exposure, more suggestiveness (or ambiguity), more off-centre shots...

In my opinion, it's got nothing to do with people having a problem with empowered women/heroines having casual sex with comic book superheroes. It's just that the artwork is not classy.
Actually the scene you posted looks kind of ridiculous.

Fan of Christopher Nolan's Batman!
