Re: Anyone else a bit dissapointed in the lack of roleplays about sex?
Short answer: hell yes.
Sorry, I'm an overly-opinionated and verbose
mofo who likes to prattle
and act silly, and you've raised what I think is a fascinating topic, so I'm going to share my thoughts about it, but please be aware that I'm going to be blunt, i.e., please stop reading if you take offense frequently or easily. (I feel the need to insert this caveat because I say things sometimes that bother people when I don't even mean to do so.)
Okay, sex in Elliquiy RPs. There's too little of it, IMO. Why is that? Does anyone know? Here are my theories, which may be totally wrong
, because I have no special knowledge whatsoever.
I ran a modern-day suspense/espionage group game at Elliquiy that lasted for over a year, I think, and I assumed that everyone in it wanted to write sex scenes as often as possible, so I kept creating what I thought were viable opportunities for just that. Nobody had sex. All the characters were incredible studmuffins or supervixens, and they all sat around talking to each other and thinking things to themselves, when they could have been fucking. :)
Eventually I tried to do a sex scene myself using one of my own characters, because it sure seemed like the thing to do. It went poorly -- actually it went really well, because the other player was a great writer, except -- there was almost no sex in it! I don't know why, honest; we tried, both of us.
Later on I moved the entire game into a whorehouse
setting. Seriously. Know why I did that? You guessed it, because I figured it would make it even easier and more obvious for people to fuck the shit out of each other. :) I created opportunities within the whorehouse for all kinds of kinky BDSM and voyeurism and exhibitionism and non-con and gangbanging. Almost none of that happened, especially if you subtract the scenes I participated in myself.
Our game always had about an even number of male and female players who were either straight or bi in their sexual preferences, so that wasn't the problem. All incredibly gifted writers; you can check and see. And again, every single character in the game except for some of mine (as the GM) were hotter than hell
(based on their char pics). The game lasted for over a year, and I only recall two relatively-short sex scenes that reached a mutual completion.
Hehehehe I suppose I'm just pointing all this out to suggest that BlackestKnight really has a good point that might be worth further discussion from anyone else interested in seeing more sexual content on the boards. It seems rare to me, too, and I don't know why that is, or what can (or ought) to be done about it (maybe nothing, I dunno).
One more little thing and I'll go. (Oh, and sorry if I've been too blunt here for anyone's tastes; I'm making an honest effort to be lighthearted and friendly and totally non-offensive, except that I use expletives, because I figure that's okay to do at Elliquiy, right?)
It seems many people at Elliquiy like to tell all their potential RP partners exactly which kinky and obscure sexual practices seem most exciting to them personally, and we're talking about giving extensive
Not everyone at Elliquiy lists as much detail as they do at, say, that Rabbit Hole place (which I find absolutely hilarious), but it's common for many of us to list many sexual activities we would theoretically like to write about in our O/O's. I did it, a long time ago, because it seemed like the thing to do.
Now, how many people actually do scenes in RPs that involve hardly any of that incredibly kinky stuff that gets listed in everyone's O/O's? If you look around at enough RPs, you discover that most have no sex at all, and many of the rest have only short sex scenes. (There are a few people who do nothing but sex-heavy RPs, but they're a small minority of E members, it seems to me, at least. Before I joined, I would have guessed they would be in the majority.)
That's my impression at least; I'm no authority, nor does it personally matter to me what others like to RP about; to each his own! But how come everybody lists their kinks in such detail and so publicly, if so few of us ever write about them?
Just sayin'. :) I think it's a fun, fascinating topic for discussion. (Please nobody get mad at me, okay? I'm just trying to have fun here.)
