Do intense and detailed scenes in a book bring more enjoyment to the reader?

When writing a story, I form a mental picture of a love scene. The more erotic, the better. I want to transfer my mental picture to the readers in words. If scenes don’t come clear enough in my head and I continue with the love scene, I’m unsure if I’m leaving my readers hanging wondering what’s going on.
Sometimes it takes me a day or two to get the right image and make sure the description of a love scene isn’t vague. That’s what it’s all about when you write. Giving enjoyment to the reader and taking them along for the journey whether it’s in the bedroom, or an office setting.
I like to think my readers feel something when I put emotions into a heated argument between my characters, or an erotic bedroom scene. This is my whole purpose in entertaining even though it’s only for a short while until they finish the book.
In the back of my mind, I’m hoping they enjoy the first read so much, they’ll glance at it the second time. That’s when you know you’ve succeeded as a writer. The five little words I couldn’t put it down is music to an author’s ears.
Is this how you feel as a writer in conveying such realistic scenes that the reader can’t put the book down? And here’s a question for the readers out there that are reading this blog. Do you feel a writer goes into enough detail in love scenes and other scenes in the story to give you an emotional impact that remains with you long after finishing the book?
