|| I thought it was weird at first, but thinking about it, Jay and Gloria don't show much physical affection too imo. The only couple that do it is Claire and Phil really. I think they want to keep it down because they want to express the characters' affections in other ways if you know what i mean|
Ah, good point. Although I feel like for Jay and Gloria it’s…I was going to say that it’s different, but I honestly don’t know how it is different. One anon pointed out that the explanation was given in “The Kiss” and from then on they’re just keeping it real, it’s normal that some couples won’t be all that affectionate with each other all the time - besides, Cam and Mitch have been together for so long, I guess the physical parts of their relationship might not be that important to them anymore. I agree with another anon who is saying that maybe a quick peck here and there is normal though, when they’re celebrating something, for example.
As for the final part of your message, I’ve been thinking about this too. Modern Family puts little emphasis on sex, contrary to many other TV shows. Sex seems to be a huge part of people’s daily lives, sexuality as a whole, but Modern Family chooses to focus on different things and I, personally, really like that. It definitely shows the abundance of things other than sex that can be important between people, in a culture where a lot of people seem to place huge value on sex.
