Hi -- I'm a totally uninformed newbie compared to everyone else who's been commenting so far, so feel free to take my remarks with a grain of salt.
Looking at the list of genres, I find several of the terms completely foreign, and don't find the current floating-cursor descriptions very helpful. That's not
meant to sound critical in any way, and it may result entirely from newbie inexperience ... but for example, the sub-categories of fantasy and sci-fi are lost on me. Is there any way to provide further explanation, either on the page or elsewhere?
I also recognize most of the terms as popular types of stories or categories of fiction or film, but I wonder if people are really out there who frequently roleplay
under all those descriptions. For example, are there people who have a habit of doing "Philosophical" roleplays, or "Tragedy" roleplays?
Finally, and most importantly, I worry that most of the sexual roleplays I've done wouldn't fall under any
of the genres listed. My roleplays so far have tended to focus almost exclusively on human dom/sub relationships and the sexual activity in those relationships. If they were films or books, they might be loosely categorized as Drama or General Fiction, or more likely just Adult or Pornography.
I guess my biggest suggestion is that there ought to be some kind of "catch-all" generic term for general sex RPs, kind of like an "Other" category, for RPs that deal mostly with just human relationships and sex. They may have elements of a Comedy or a Thriller or what have you, but they don't feature any of those elements exclusively enough to be properly described that way.
The closest terms I can think of are "Realism" or "Erotica" ...
Sorry for the length, thanks for reading.
