My Creative Writing professor, a male, said that it's "one of the most boring things to read. Just say 'they made love'."
I call bullshit at least for male readers.
What do you think? How would you probably feel at a sex/masturbation scene?

The same as when a "sex" scene comes up in a non-porn movie. I cringe at the puerile depiction.
I remember reading Neuromancer and being totally put off by the descriptions of the sex. I also remember reading an adventure story set in the Africa during World War II and giving up due to the constant, downright adolescent sexualisation of the female character - I couldn't help but image the author sweating lustfully as he typed out descriptions of hard nipples and quivering feminine mounds.

Pure speculation on my part . Many skillful and talented writers are know for
expressing their ideas, using words to shape images feelings and thoughts,
their story telling advancing the plot, portraying their characters
that connect to readers. We can be drawn in by the most complex,
fantazmic and controversial of ideas by their writing talents.
But when it comes to love scenes they SEEM to fail capturing our senses.
Maybe that's not their fault, maybe it's our own fault because of how we lead
our own lives: what we allow ourselves to be exposed to... how much sexual imagery
is thrown at us by advertising, movies, music videos, video games, and other words
and actions by pop icons like Miley, Beyonce, Pitbull, Eazy E., Bill Clinton and Trump.
Culture & Society, blah blah blah . (no need to go on and on)0
