There’s still something amiss when a substantial lip-lock between Nolan and Patrick on Revenge is surprising. Glee fans lost their minds to see Kurt straddle a sexy grifter in “Previously Unaired Christmas Episode” — and the ensuing kiss lasted only a split second before the camera panned away — simply because Kurt and Blaine are so consistently unaffectionate, always opting for a hug after months of separation. It’s hard to imagine how thoroughly heads would explode if Mitch and Cam really gave in to a tender embrace. But seriously, married people have sex too! … While it’s great to see more LGBT characters on TV, we can no longer settle for Mitch and Cam’s chaste union or Blaine and Kurt’s G-rated canoodling.

Sex, however messy or uncomfortable, will always be an essential part of that picture.
