There are no rules for sex in D&D. In GURPS we have the, fairly loosely, defined Erotic Arts skill and that it. Oh, and the grappling rules would probably apply in both cases.

Very true. But... I think it is mostly forwards compatible. My 70+ year old dad, for instance, still wouldn't get it, nor would most of my ~late-50s/early-60s coworkers.

Google Fu will find you the (obviously) unofficial (3rd Ed) "GURPS Sex", but many of the reproductive options in GURPS Biotech shows how wrong they were for many of their point assumptions. Not to mention unless you're playing a sex worker and that's a major part of your game who would spend points on things like that. ("My Very Beautiful Elven Scout is an amazing shot with a long bow, can't be beat with the blade and, oh right, awesome in bed.")

I'll admit just a tiny bit of clarification on "physical romantic interaction" would be good for some of the games I've been planning. I have legitimate character concepts where that isn't a terrible thing to know.

Besides, there's nothing saying that they'll want to play erotic games just because they're porn actors. I don't want to play a pharmacologist, and I doubt that Hackard's, Punch's, or Stoddard's games include leet editing skills... :)

It was never official. It was put out by a third party using the d20 License. The confusion of it being "official" is from several of the authors being WotC employees at the time.

As a result of that book, WotC made a few changes that affected (and in some ways hastened the death of) the d20 License. It also put in a new policy forbidding its employees from working on third-party products without written permission from their managers.

I've never read or looked through the book, and I've heard it's not that good, but it certainly had a sizeable effect on the d20 end of the industry.

Its funny...I remember stumbling on a site that made stats for all of the major porn stars. Mostly D&D stats but I remember they had some stats for other systems. The impressive part of it was that they didn't make up any skills, feats or advantages. In other words, they were all ready to be used.

I can't find it anymore. I sort of wish I kept that site, or at least copied the info. It was pretty funny.

Someone had a lot of time on their hands, methinks...

One of the (female) players in my old GURPS Spellgate campaign loaded up her character with something like 30 points worth of sex-related Advantages and Skills. Her rational for doing this was that her Las Vegas-based cat burglar had as a "cover identity" that of an exotic dancer and escort.

It wasn't by any means a major part of the game, but it certainly did come in extremely handy on the one occasion when the PCs needed to infiltrate a strip club.

Methinks that is based on the concepts spread by video games. The problem is how to convert video gamers into RPG gamers.

And so I don't derail the thread: We need a strong missionary outreach to the porn and stripper demographic. Volunteers?

Wouldn't this require a specialized game, or at least a specialized supplement? Perhaps following up GURPS Cabaret Chicks on Ice with GURPS Porn Chicks Out of Bed?

(The trouble here is I don't know whether I'm joking...)
