Quote from: DannyKInteresting. A 32-year-old virgin might also be one of life's natural celibates -- someone who is very passionate about other things and never saw a good reason to go through all that indignity with another person.
QuoteHonestly, I can't imagine playing this game unless it was played somewhat for grim laughs, sort of The Bachelor Kills Puppies for Satan. But then, I've never played a female character; I just can't get my head around it. Running female NPC's, no problem.
Quote from: Emily CareIt's curious for me to imagine not being able to play a character of the opposite gender. Its something I don't quite get. Vincent's strong reaction to just imagining the character he created feels very rewarding to me. It will be interesting to see if I can convey this to other folk, not so inclined normally. What makes it hard to imagine really playing a character of a different sex or gender?
Quote from: crucielThis is, of course, assuming there isn't some psychological trauma keeping her away from the act - like molestation as a child. Which could go all sorts of awful in lots of exciting ways with creepy stalker man, particularly if she has that 'submissive victim mindset' thing going on. All right, now I'm making myself depressed.
Quote from: DoyceHmm. I'm trying to think of a book or movie parallel to Breaking the Ice and coming up blank. Anyone have any thoughts?
Quote from: Ron EdwardsI mean, y'all were just about to deal with that, and wham, we start this bogus discussion about cross-gender play (like we haven't beaten that into its perfectly obvious conclusions a couple of times here). Talk about sublimation!
Quote from: ChrisWhile thinking about playing with the R rating, did you even briefly consider "cheating", like using satire, parody, spoofing, etc. in order to avoid an uncomfortable amount of disclosure?
Quote from: ChrisWould the scary level go up or down if you were to play with the R rating with someone you didn't know as well as Emily?
Quote from: VincentYou play a character who's unlike yourself but like your fellow player
Quote from: TomBTW -- I totally call dibs on the polyamorous bisexual kinky woman

Quote from: RonC'mon! Are they gonna? Are they gonna right now?
Quote from: bluegargantuaAnd here's the other deal -- it's a first date. It can be a little awkward, but it's also a time when people try really hard to put a good face on things. What's going to tease out all the problems these people have? If the guy isn't a complete bastard, he probably won't act up. If he really does have a short temper well, you might be able to annoy him to the point of losing his cool, but I don't know how that really moves things along. The virgin issue is interesting but I think it'll be very tough to move that forward. And again, unless the guy is a complete asshole No Means No and that'll be the end of it, possibly without any explanation as to why.
QuoteEm: I assume this is meant to be played mostly in co-ed situations? Huh, actually it appears to be just for a pair of players, which is neat. BTW -- I totally call dibs on the polyamorous bisexual kinky woman because nothing will make a first date go more awkwardly than constantly running into people who remember licking your boots at the club that one time. Possibly more romantic comedy than serious drama, but still...
