Random Ideas that can be turned into a Story, RP, or a Group Game
Kind of based off a few threads I have seen here this idea is centered around a student enrolling in an experiment at the university. What's the basic, advertised experiment?
- Initially, the experiment that the character signs up for is examining the effects that sexual arousal has on sexual decision making. The experimenters have hypothesized that in 'the heat of the moment', as it were, people are more likely to make riskier decisions when it comes to sex. After this experiment is completed, the character will be invited to take part in further follow on tests.Why would they sign up for this experiment? Why suffer the potential embarrassment?
- Most experiments/studies offer student participants either monetary reimbursement or a contribution to course credit (ie. each student is required to complete 20hrs a semester participating in experiments). Reasons therefore stands that the character is either broke and the money offered is very good or they have left it late to complete their hours and this one experiment offers all that they need.Initial Experiment Procedure Specifics
What happens after the experiment?
- Participant is sat in front of a display, alone in a room. Those in the aroused group view a number of pornographic images or clips that they are free to cycle through.
- Instructed to masturbate so that they can become more aroused, their arousal is measured physiologically via either vaginometry or phallometry as well as a subjective measure operated by a remote.
- Once the participants indicate a subjective arousal of 75%, a statement shows up on the screen and the participants respond with how much they agree with it (1 being low, 10 being high). One example statement is 'Would you encourage your date to drink to increase the chance that they would have sex with you?'
- On completion of the experiment, participants would also be given a sealed envelope containing a questionnaire about their sexual activity during the 24 hours immediately following the experiment which isn't to be opened until 24 hours have passed. Items include 'Have you masturbated in the past 24 hours?' and 'Have you engaged in sexual intercourse during the past 24 hours?'
- Character has been masturbating but hasn't been allowed to orgasm. Are they going to act differently because of how aroused they have become? More risky? Would they agree to take up the experimenters offer of participation in further experiments of a similar nature?
Who knows, just my mind spouting off an idea which is kinda cool ;-) Maybe it's an RP with a bit of tweaking or maybe it's just a solo I might write eventually.
The Minotaur - The LabyrinthOriginal Greek Myth
Every nine years, seven Athenian youths and maidens were sent to the Minotaur's labyrinth as a display of obedience to King Minos. Theseus volunteered to go as one of the seven youths to kill the Minotaur. On arriving at the island of Crete, King Minos inspecting the offerings to make sure he wasn’t being cheated. At his side stood his daughter Ariadne whose heart was filled with compassion as she viewed the youths and maidens who would soon perish. Theseus requested to be the first victim.
Unnoticed by all, Ariadne slips out of the palace at night and visits Theseus in his prison cell. There she gives him twine and a sword bidding him to tie one end of the twine to the entrance of the labyrinth and keep the other end in his hand as a clue to find his way out. Theseus did this and boldly entered the labyrinth walking past the whitened bones which revealed the fates of those who had preceded him.
He encounters and slays the monstrous Minotaur.Possible Reworking
Young women are going missing in the city. Police believe that this is somehow linked to an underground club but lack of evidence has resulted in a series of dead ends. A young rookie officer is set up as bait and ends up falling prey to the kidnapper. She awakes to find herself in a cell. She gets dragged out along with six other girls and is inspected by the owner of the club before being told that they are here as prey for their wealthy clientele. Tomorrow they will be released into a series of underground tunnels where they will be hunted and used, however the clients wish. There is no law in the labyrinth. The owner’s son or daughter is present and over the course of the story will aid the female officer.
Perhaps there is one client who is viewed as being more dangerous than others - like the Man in Black in Westworld - who stands in as the figurative Minotaur.
Random Ideas and Snippets
- Sex by Proxy - A character experience the feelings of other people having sex. Would most likely fit in with a paranormal story about psychics. A character would have the ability to control other people's feelings but a side effect of the early manifestations of this power would be that they are easily overcome by the emotions of those around them. This could include the couple next door as they have sex and our character is woken in the middle of the night by pleasurable feelings.
