but there is no need EVER for on screen sex or nudity in trek
I agree (and with your previous comment about there being no need for sex scenes in any movies* (other than pornographic) as they simply disrupt the story**

Precisely. I think one of the most interesting relationships shown in Trek, was in TNG, between Doctor T'Pan and Doctor Christopher. I say one of the most interesting, as the behavior of Vulcan females, is not exactly in keeping with the biological urges of most Human males, and theirs was clearly 'a marriage of the minds', and Dr Christopher clearly embraced a Vulcan lifestyle, as shown by his choice of clothing... The scene in Friends where Pheobe is attempting to 'seduce' Chandler to uncover his relationship with Monica is about as close to Vulcan foreplay as one can realistically expect to see

"I am going to kiss you now, wife."
"That would be agreeable, husband"
"I shall enjoy our lovemaking"
"As will I..."

*
The exception being the threeway in American Psycho (once Sussidio starts playing) as that is just hillarious due to Patrick's narcissism.

**
The lovescene in Highlander between Connor and Brenda probably being the best example I can think of...
