I'm a big fan of romance in stories and games.

I also watch porn.

But I don't mix the two. If I'm playing a game, I want my hands on the controller (not a euphemism). I didn't flee from the Mass Effect 1 sex scene, but it also didn't do anything for me. If the scene in BG 3 is more than 30 seconds long, I'll be more likely to get bored and thinking "get on with it so I can get back to the game I'm here to play".

I don't think Larian should cut that content... but I think it wouldn't be a bad idea to add an option in the settings for a fade-to-black.
