H/D hotness without the smut...

I love my H/D smut. In fact there are few if any squicks and a lot of kinks when it comes to this ship. Yet I can’t help thinking that over time the characters seem a bit…oversexed? Most of the ficlets, drabbles and multi-chapter stuff seem to either focus on a very sweet and happy H/D pairing or them having sex. I admit this is a very, very sweeping statement and there are scores of authors who are exceptions. Additionally most shippings in most fandoms tend to devolve to this level given enough time.

Yet. I seem to recall Irresistible Poison and the H/D romance there without any actual smut. Perhaps even that is not quite the appropriate example- let’s take lovely_slyth’s Heat. No actual smut yet it only takes a quill to send your computer screen smoking.

H/D can set your computer on fire without explicit sex. Ensnaring your senses through dialogue, titillating descriptions which could be racy but may could also leave it up to our imaginations. Its not necessarily vague- it teases and makes us beg for more – yet is also oddly satisfying.

I hope there are H/D-ers who get what I mean- any thoughts?
