Do you read romance novels? Or do you think they are lame? Does a sex scene in a book turn you on or make you close it?

Generally I don't read romance novels. But it's something that I might try!
I hate romance novels. I don't mind a book having romance in it, but I don't want that to be the main focus.
I read romance novels- both classics like Jane Austen and Elizabeth Gaskell, as well as more contemporary, indie authors. I do think that even the most escapist of romance books need more than two characters to be enjoyable though!
I really think it depends on the book. There are some really wonderful romance novels and then there are some of the cheesy kind. I admire romance authors who are original and books that are about more than just the romance. A favourite of mine is Atonement by Ian McEwan as it has such depth and underlying themes.

If a sex scene is appropriate, I don't mind. But if it is out of place or just there for the sake of it, I am not a fan.
Yes I do. It's such a broad genre with so many subgenres that it seems silly to call them all lame. I like funny contemporary romances, like Jennifer Crusie's books, and the odd historical or young adult romance.
Does Jane Austen count?
I don't mind a bit of romance in a book I'm reading, but I don't seek out romance fiction. As for sex in a book, I think it has to be done tastefully and it must serve a purpose; I don't want all the details, and actually prefer when it is implied.
