That's a legitimate argument though.
I know /co/oomer most likely won't understand me, but I'll try to explain it as well as I can:
Here we have those visual novels. A lot of them are just dating sims with porn. Nothing wrong with that.
But then we also have some visual novels that want to be taken seriously. That have all these grand themes, character arcs, Checkov's guns and pretense of literature.
And then, in the middle of this story that you're supposed to be taking serously, you get a bunch of horny porn scenes with the characters that you're supposed to be taking seriously.
Porn scenes that don't advance the plot or develop the characters. That are just porn for the sake of it.
Now, I don't know about you, but this KIND OF ruins a lot pretense of a visual novel might have built up previously.
There's a reason Crime And Punishment doesn't feature a random sex scene between Raskolnikov and Sonya out of nowhere.
So it helps when a reader is at least given an option to skip these scenes so that their immersion into the story is not immediately broken.
