^You missed the flirtation between Spock and Uhura in the early TOS episodes, I take it? Sex in the movie? There was sex? Guess I missed those scenes. Even Kirk didn't have sex, Uhura interrupted him.Do you think every time two people kiss or show affection they are having sex?
Why would anyone think Uhura's sexual prowess got her anywhere? The movie is quite clear she's more than qualified for her position.
