I'm toying around with an adult-oriented rules modification for a game system, and the idea of a sexually-based martial art came to mind. I'm trying to figure out some ideas, but hit writer's block. For one thing, I think I need name ideas.

In particular, I'm envisioning this in one of two possible ways. First, a "kunoichi" style art based on using sexuality and lust to distract or overpower opponents, that works for either gender as practitioner. Assuming that would be too complicated, the other option is a specific system for each gender. I've never done anything of this nature before, but I don't mind thinking outside the box. Any help?

I know that with this subject matter, there will invariably be flames or jokes, but let's try and keep them to a minimum please? Just looking for serious ideas.

Being a bit more specific might help: are we talking a traditional RPG here? Rules heavy or rules light? Gritty or Over the Top? I assume the subject matter is mature given the concept, but are we talking about anime style goofy sexual stuff or mean streets exploitation of sexuality here?

Also, as an aside I'd like to say that I personally don't like sexual stuff in games because I play with a bunch of goofy dudes who I know wouldn't be able to handle this subject matter well at all, so who might your target audience be? I mean, it's used as a martial art, so I'm guessing that you won't be going into the deeper themes of this kind of thing, but I could be wrong. Still it's something to think about: is this a "you and your friends thing" a "beer and pretzels thing" or more of a "serious business" type of deal?

Anyways good luck. And sorry for answering your question with a bunch of questions!

The topic of martial arts and sexuality was touched upon in several places in the game Weapons of the Gods. There were some "secrets" having to do with yin and yang flow, children, and how same sex couples could manage their chi issues. It might get you thinking if you can have a look at that.

Thanks for the ideas, chance.thirteen. I'll look into Weapons of the Gods. Looks like fun, anyway, given the wuxia nature.

My system is geared to be a modern style RPG. Rules, if I had to choose I'd say 'medium', not heavy but if I didn't want there to be rules I wouldn't be here asking for help with rules, would I? Tongue I'd say I'm looking for something freeformish, that can be implemented if needed, or discarded if it doesn't fit the campaign. I have a basic core set of rules, and this would be used as a supplement not part of the initial rules.

My basic core mechanic: skill roll = stat + skill + 2d6 versus a difficulty number. Opposed skill roll would by stat + skill + 2d6 versus same. If you lack a relevant skill, replace it with an additional 1d6, and hope for a high number. All skills are tied to related statistics.

Gritty or over the top... I haven't decided. I'm looking for suggestions or ideas. If something sounds good I might use it. Mean streets exploitation more than anime style, although I wouldn't mind a mix. I'm actually trying to put something together where the GM could individually decide what sort of sexual content would be present. So if they were using my rules to construct an anime game similar to the hentai series "La Blue Girl", they could do that in as much extreme and goofiness as they like, or go with something more realistic.

As I envision it, it's "beer and pretzels" meets with "serious business".

For inspiration, do some reading about Tantric sex.

Also, as far as the depth of the material, I will be making more than just a martial art, but this is the area I feel most need of help with. I just thought it would be an interesting thing to include. I've seen the D20 "Book of Erotic Fantasy" where they delve into sex and spells, and other ideas. But I don't like to do something that's been done. Hence, I think this concept is a pretty original one.

I envision a kunoichi (female shinobi specialist) using such a martial art to distract castle guards by flashing some skin, or maybe using her knowledge of anatomy and pressure point techniques to make it especially difficult for a target of seduction to resist her charms, subtly touching her victim in the right places.

The outrageous anime stuff, some of it might be useful, some not so much. The main thing is fun. As a friend of mine asked "Are you looking for a guy who can bash out brains with his boner?" Not unless it would be fun to role-play. Of course, who knows, maybe it would be. So, in all seriousness (and silliness) any suggestions might be good.

Assuming that mechanics and rules can be time-consuming to think up, how about focusing on a name, first?

Anyone have suggestions?

From my perspective name comes from function or history. There is a significant difference between using an understanding of chi flow to enhance seduction and distraction techniques, for sexual encounters, and high end over the top things. Weapons of the Gods has good examples of naming schools and techniques, though most are allegorical.

I'll start with two simple name suggestions, they maybe isn't good, but it may help get the ideas going:
The Rude Matrial Arts, Action Hentai Rpg.

Now to a Silly Rude Game Suggestions: Me and a penpal once thought up a couple of Street Fighter Rpg characters, one i envisioned, was something as wierd as a Kabaddi-stylist that also was a porn star (Kabbaddi practioners are able to strech their limbs......).

Now to more serious suggestions:
 * A Beauty Value. To attack someone, this Value must be considered, or a versus roll of Willpower or such or else, the would-be Attacker stares at the intended target instead. I have already someting similar in my own Game System, more or less.
 * A "Vixuality" Skill, that may enhancethe above beauty Value. This is the skill to show just the right amount of skin, and to use a "sixth sense" to correctly judge what others want to see, and hear, so some targets will be putty in their hands(for instance, there seem to be many "High Officials" and such, that really wants to be Dominated........
 * A Good Wardrobe(equipment) may be proper, to have the clothes needed to really go "allout" in a special case.
 * You have already pointed out Preassure Points to make a target more susceptible, but this can be taken a step further: Using is to making the target Exited, so to speak, or even making the Target get .... an Orgasm, just by making a "Preassure Point Combo".

Well, that was some of my, ......... ideas.
