I always see people complaining that Days doesn't show romantic/sexy (whatever) scenes with the older characters, but when they do people say ewww. Is it only okey when it's your favorites (COUGH J&M, S&K, B&H, COUGH)? Is it because actors like Joe hasn't had plastic surgery and he actually look normal for his age?
For me, I think it has more to do with chemistry and story.
There are only two couples I actually want to see sex scenes of. First is J&M, they totally hooked me with their chemistry back in 86. They were amazing in the 80s, 90s, a bit too lovey dovey in the 2000s for my taste. I'm hoping 'new' John will go back to 'old' John but not be so sappy. Regardless, I am deeply attached to them. The second is Ejami. I like their love story their chemistry. It's started feeling similar to how I feel about J&M.
I still love other couples, particularly Bope, Payla, and Tanna, but I honestly don't really watch their love scenes. I adore the characters and the actors, but their particular chemistry to each other never hit me. Doesn't mean I hate the love scenes, I just don't love them. I like them being devoted to each other, and certainly don't mind their scenes, but I don't look forward to seeing it.
Stefano, while cute as a villain, is totally unattractive to me as a person (personality wise, not looks wise), so no, I really don't want to see him making out with anyone.
I also want making love, not just sex. I'm still traumatized from Nicole seducing Vic back around 2000 because she wanted his money. I also didn't go for the summer elevator scenes at all for the same reason. It was just sex, no real emotion.
Then there is also the off the wall things. I never liked Kate. But then she helps get John off of drugs, and I was invested. I actually did love their love scenes, but I felt it was because they needed each other. They'd both lost their loved ones. LK is an amazing actress. She seems to just change for whatever the writers want to do with her. Wish they'd use her better, actually. I'd think it's just John that I like, but hot as ED was, I never liked him with Kristen. I understood him with Ava, but wasn't into their sex scenes because I never felt he loved her.
Nothing to do with plastic surgery for me. It's more about a couple in love that I love.
