What the fuck kind of stupid question is that?

In mature (not to be confused with adult) anime that deal with those aspects of the adult world, it is essential.
In teen 'ecchi' anime, or mainstream anime with fanservice, yes it is essential.
A lot of people love it. Most of the time it's not over the top, and serves as simply "fan service"; but some anime do go quite deeply into the sexual innuendo / sexuality / even graphic sex; but then usually it's a big focus of the anime itself so as such taking it out would leave the anime extremely bland.
If you're looking for a story, just don't go for ecchi anime, it's pretty simple.

no it wont there will always be some degree of fanservice in animes as it helps attract more viewers and popularity and therefore the makers will gain more money from merchendise(sp lol) and dvds and the like


i agree...the viewers are human being after all...human attracted to sex...its their desire..so the creator use that side of human to create a profit......profit can be made through manipulation of human desire...ahh...its a wonderful life isnt it?


it is isnt it, its really good to see people taking advantage of the sexual desires of crazed fans or just viewers in general and turning that into a profit, that my friend is genious

Hmm... well let me go out on a limb here.

I would have to say implied sexuality is needed more than actual sex scenes. I say this because, while sex is interesting and all, I feel random sex scenes can take away from the main story. I guess, in my mind anyway, placing biological process we all can go through is just not interesting.

That being said, I am not saying anime cannot be without sex scenes, as long as sex is tastefully added into the anime. The best example I can think of is a Hentai called Sex Friend . This hentai uses the most tasteful inclusion of sex into a story. Basically the story shows how sexuality plays into some peoples relationship. Plus the scenes are short and quick, they are not 5 min. a piece. Other hentai exploring sexual fetishes are alright. Because, as far as I can see, they are exploring that fetish. A great, yet moderately terrifying, example of this is Cool Devices . However, these days there is a lot of hentai and anime out there with sex just for the sake of giving all of us guys something to jerk off too.

So my point is that the we can use the implied sexuality. But two characters flatout having sex is not needed, hardly at all.

Lately theyve been going overboard with that, to the point where the quality the the drawing decrease (that might just be the studio) also to the point were it gets annoying.

No, it won't. If an anime doesn't have these sexual content in it, no one would watch it.
But animes with porn... hentai? Oh, that wouldn't stop. Hentai is a big industry in Japan.


Porn in general won't stop, because it is an amazingly an efficient way of gaining capital. Despite the negative press it gets from society.

Even though I don't like the idea, I would say it depends on the anime. In Magical Lyrical Girl Nanoha, people have thier clothes changing while they are transforming. Spice and Wolf had Horo without clothes on when she met Lawerence. How is Horo able to buy clothes when she has nothing to hide her ears and tail?!

it depends on the plot, you aren't going to have a sex scene when you've got ten year old main characters now would you
