These may very well have not been her fantasies, but what she - or more likely, her editor - felt would help the books sell. I understand that it is important to you to feel that McCaffrey had the same fantasies that you had/have, but using that as the basis for debating the merits of her work is illogical.
I'd say yes if I didn't know far too many people who share my sexual orientation and incidentally share my view of AMC, or hadn't seen her books in too many kinky households to call it pure chance.

I doubt any of her editors asked for kinky sex, though I am pretty sure a few did ask for more or at least equal amounts of sex as compared to her male peers. That's the 1970ies for you.
