We have no idea what a new Trek series might be like. It wouldn't necessarily follow the same ethic as Trek series in the Berman/TNG era, where sex was only implied, not shown.
A movie has much more liberty to be sexually explicit, but we rarely got any sex scenes in Trek movies. Even in Abrams' Trek the most we got was a bedroom scene between Orion Starfleet girl and Kirk 2.0. Abrams' quote implies he would not be keen on a heavy on-screen romance between two gay characters. It seems the only romance fans are interested in seeing in Trek XII, would be a continuation of the Spock/Uhura thing.
