Sara’s Little Purple Book
An Open Examination of Mutant Sexuality
First Edition, 2007
Mutants are human. This fact is hard for many people to accept, but it is understandable how some could make a harsher distinction: few ‘normal humans’ have a shell made of stone, hurl lightning, or curl their fingers the wrong way. Despite this, mutants have one commonality that makes a compelling point towards their humanity. No matter how ‘weird’ a mutant may be, the vast majority of them can interbreed with a normal human one way or another with a good chance of producing a normal human (or normal mutant) themselves.
In short, EVERYONE has an opinion about sex.
The sexual revolution, however, is only just catching up with mutant sexuality. But who can throw blame when science as a whole is still behind the eight ball on the subject? Remedying this problem, clearing away decades of misconceptions that have built up around the facts, is what this pocket guide is all about. Between these luridly chromatic covers you will discover the pranks and pitfalls that commonly befall mutant lovers, as well as how you may anticipate and counteract the common problems of being a member of the abnormally empowered. At the same time I will discuss the trials and tribulations of gender from the mutant perspective.
Note: While this guide has been written with mutants in mind, it is easily applicable to persons who have been empowered via other sources. Ki based abilities, for example, are included in particular for use by non-mutant supers.
On the surface, the average Exemplar is what everyone aspires to be: strong, fast, tough, and drop-dead sexy; plus you get all of that without even trying. What most Exemplars don’t see is the hidden cost of all that ability, at least until it’s too late. All too often their power goes to their heads and they forget the responsibility that comes with it. Nowhere is this more dangerous than in sexual relations.
It was said in Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex and it still holds true: the raw power available at the fingertips of even low level Exemplars can be dangerous to a lover with a normal constitution. You may be able, like a tiger matron with cubs, to pick a baby up with tender hands and leave him unharmed, or to use chopsticks with flair. But in these tasks you merely have to exert a modicum of self control.
Sex isn’t about being in control. On the edge of orgasm, we leave rational thought behind and nothing remains but instinct. It doesn’t help that, thanks to the improvements to their bodies, Exemplars often feel sexual stimulus more keenly than others. If a norm feels the earth move, the Exemplar is at ground zero of the erupting volcano.
The phenomenon of Exemplar-induced sexual injury is so well documented that law enforcement agencies look for certain symptoms during the examination of rape victims to tell if the perpetrator was actually a mutant. A crushed pelvis, broken wrists or hands, fractured thighbones, deep lacerations across the back, and the tearing of various bodily orifices are good examples of injuries that may be inflicted by amorous Exemplars. Of particular note is the so-called ‘SuperHickey’, which involves small areas that have sustained such pressure that blood vessels have burst or cells ruptured. This injury can be particularly dangerous; there have been incidents which caused massive internal bleeding, as veins or even arteries were torn open without breaking the skin.
Due to all these issues, statistics show that the majority of Exemplars prefer partners with powers that allow them to let go without fear. Other Exemplars, other types of Bricks, and Regenerators are particularly common Exemplar partners.

If any mutant power offers more challenges to relationships between people, particularly in the bedroom, it’s the Energizer trait. The majority of Exemplar-related injuries are minor; the majority of Energizer-related injuries are major. First degree burns to 50-60% of the body PLUS internal damage are not uncommon when dealing with Energizers in sexual relationships. Even Exemplars and Regenerators can have trouble shrugging off these injuries. More severe incidents where the Energizer has completely lost control of their powers have been fatal.
Before you start thinking that you’ll never know physical love and die lonely in a gutter, there is help available that will enable you to have normal relationships.
As the saying goes: there’s homosexuality, heterosexuality, bisexuality, and Shifter sexuality. The popular image of the Shifter is of a depraved omnisexual that will literally do anything to anything. The reality is that these are the exception, rather than the rule. While it is true that Shifters are exposed to a greater range of sexual experiences and their inhibitions often break down with age, many Shifters operate under a strict code of conduct that is necessary for them to maintain a sense of identity. Retaining this sense of identity is one of the most important things to a Shifter, and if, for example, their identity hinges upon a concept such as ‘male’ or ‘heterosexual’ or ‘animal’, they will probably refuse advances or suggestions that are contrary to this position even if they have the ability.
On the other hand, a Shifter may acquire some very unusual kinks, such as shifting in the middle of sex, often to a wildly different form. Growing multiple limbs/erogenous zones/genitalia is also a common kink, as well as transposing features from one area of the body to another.
A Shifter lover may be a boon, or a curse in disguise. You may think it would be awesome to have a boy/girlfriend that can look like anyone your heart desires. BUT this is the setup for possibly the biggest pitfall in abnormally-empowered relationships. A Shifter wants what everyone else wants, possibly more so: to be loved for who they are and NOT what they can give you. Do yourself a favour and make sure you love your Shifter partner for his/her mind and personality first; or, if you are the Shifter in question, make sure that you’re not just going to be taken advantage of.
Of all power types, there aren’t too many things that Warpers can do to enhance the sexual experience. This is particularly true since Warpers carry the fewest commonalities between individual mutants, and the widest range of tricks and techniques.
Just when you thought it was safe for you to skip the rest of the book and read the section that applies to you, think again. Everything that is said in this book applies to you, the entire book without exceptions. A spell can be made that will do absolutely anything you desire, and with that versatility comes a wide range of responsibility. So be sure to read the whole book, as well as the following section that only covers problems specific to Wizards.
VI. Psi & Ki
Psychic powers may have more in common with magic than Ki but, for the purposes of this examination, the uses and abuses of both types of powers are quite similar. Psychics focus internal energy and bend it to their will with the power of their minds. They also tend to be prodigiously intelligent, allowing them to use their extraordinary internal control to effect the world around them. Ki users can control the flow of Ki or lifeforce through their and other people’s bodies, affecting both themselves and the world around them. Their techniques are not interchangeable mechanically, but the concepts behind the techniques are the same.
VII. Devisors & Gadgeteers
Where do they get those wonderful toys? Answer: from Gadgeteers all over the world.
Avatars may manifest a wide variety of powers, such that it is impossible to account for every permutation that every spirit in the multiverse may gift to its host. I’m afraid there are no shortcuts to be found here, like Wizards it is best to read the whole book to find the parts that may apply to you. There is only one real tip here that sets Avatars apart.
To repeat the question: where did they get those wonderful toys? They pulled them out of thin air. Again, many Manifestors can do a lot that the other power sets can also do, particularly in the areas of telekinetics, summoning, and shapeshifting. At some point, every Manifestor capable of x, y, and z-category manifestations attempts to whistle up their perfect lover, at least as an experiment. Don’t be embarrassed. Like Shifters trying different sexual angles with different forms, this is natural. However, be careful when you experiment with different non-human forms; a great many of the permutations that exist in our imagination are surprisingly incompatible with sexual bliss. It’s worth noting that very few Manifestors can create a manifestation that has its own mind, most must be controlled at all times by the Manifestor, so some of these tricks cannot be used by most Manifestors. Even so, the basic principles still apply to less sentient constructs.
X. Common Power Perversions
The following section describes the ramifications of certain common powers that can be shared among a wide range of abnormally empowered beings.
Feline anthropoids are an amazingly common mutation. There is little to tell about them, since in most ways they are just like regular boys and girls. A few things to keep in mind, though. For one, don’t stroke a catperson the wrong way, go with the fur. Also, catpeople have an additional erogenous zone behind the ears, a good scratch there can send them into paroxysms of pleasure comparable to a woman’s ‘surface orgasm’. Lastly, catnip might seem like a good idea, but use in moderation and don’t expect to get sex for it. Usually they get too bombed out to care about anything else.
Claws may provide the thrill of danger to some partners. Light brushes with these over skin can also be highly erotic, thrilling nerve endings as long as the touch is delicate. Scratches can be okay, depending on the partner, but deep scratches are a big no-no unless your partner is a masochist. Even then, remember that your claws are made to kill things. During orgasm you may curl and grip your partner a bit too hard, causing a fatality. It’s best to keep your hands in something soft and expendable, such as a pillow.
Dog people tend to be very affectionate, loyal, and protective lovers. Don’t double-cross them, and be aware of their sense of smell; they are easily offended by rank odors and may wish to stick their noses into awkward places to get your scent. Don’t panic, it’s all part and parcel of being half canine. Wolf people tend to be the same, but more aggressive. Beware the cuckold wolf person; it’s a great way to get your throat torn out.
An Exuder is a person who exudes some form of substance from their skin. This can be anything from slime or grease to poison or acid. This can range in usefulness depending on circumstances. A benign, slippery, water-based slime can be quite fun in the bathroom, but good luck getting a date in the first place. On the other end, poison and acid Exuders might never know the touch of another living creature for as long as they live. Fortunately, help is at hand. Again, there are full body condoms created specifically to contain and siphon away harmful substances. Before you even try it, however, it’s a good idea to learn standard biohazard procedures and always, ALWAYS, check the suit carefully for tears beforehand.
The ‘SuperHickey’ is bad, fanged hickies are worse. If you have a vampire-like fetish for the things, take some time to learn where the major arteries are in the body so you know where not to bite and kill your partner. Also, like all wounds, unless the victim is under the influence of some drug or mind control, it will hurt. Also the bite won’t be clean and precise: it will often be ragged and torn both by the nature of the weapon and the struggles of the victim. (Even if the partner is willing, it takes iron willpower not to struggle when a predator bites you.) Thus it won’t heal properly and will most likely scar. In the end, it’s best to keep fang play down to light brushes to tease and enhance foreplay with an element of danger. Kissing with fangs is an artform. You need to keep your jaw open more than usually necessary, as well as your lips, to avoid accidentally biting, particularly by reflex. Fangs can also restrict the play of your partner’s tongue; warn them to resist the urge to test how sharp your fangs are. They’re fangs, they’re VERY sharp, and messing with them is a good way to cut or spear your tongue and ruin an evening. The worst occurrence, however, is when partners ‘lock fangs’. Occasionally, during a deep, passionate kiss, the fang of one partner, being slightly curved, will find its way behind the lower jaw of the other partner while the other fang will slip behind the partner’s fangs. This is particularly embarrassing because you’re probably going to need help to extricate yourselves without cutting each other. If you ever find yourself in a fanglock, remember above all to keep calm and do NOT try to pull directly back. Instead, press forward into your lover’s face (this may hurt but not as much as ripping open your lips and breaking your jaw) and then push in the direction away from where your fangs are pointing. Tilt your head slightly in different directions to get the right angle to guide the fangs out of your partner’s mouth. Also, remember to breathe through your nose.
The application for this power is obvious. Before you attempt to become a member of the ‘naked mile high club’ (it should be noted that there is NO practical evidence that supports the theory that the change in pressure in the atmosphere has a positive effect on orgasm), you should know that the FAA frowns heavily on such behaviours. Flying lovers have been known to cause airplanes to crash; the surprise alone can distract pilots at an inopportune moment. If you must indulge, pick a spot well outside any flight paths and keep some sort of ‘spotter’ (perhaps a flying robot of some sort or ground radar connection) on the lookout for incoming aircraft. Be aware, however, that you are also opening yourselves to viewing by any of the general public with binoculars or a telescope, and may be in infringement of indecency laws. Certain police forces have been known to dispatch fighter jets to escort flying lovers back to the airport where they can be charged for the offence.
As they say, Possession is 9/10ths of mind control law. In the end, the answer is NO. Don’t do it. Don’t even think about it. If any power is likely to get you locked up in a pit faster than you can say ‘yes’, it’s this. Stay away for your own sake.
Some of the abnormally empowered have a permanent ‘shell’ of inert material encasing their skin, or their entire body may be composed of some unusual substance. These people are affectionately known as Shellheads in honour of the comic book legend Iron Man. Unlike Iron Man, however, real Shellheads don’t get to take their armour off. This can range from mildly inconvenient, if they can still feel through their armoured skin, to catastrophic for one whose epidermis is entirely devoid of all feeling. Fortunately there are some things that can be done. Unfortunately, all of these things require heavy equipment. A pleasant massage can be achieved using a range of specialized jackhammers, usually mounted on robotic tables. I’m assured by several Shellheads that one does get used to the noise eventually, and learns to relax. Beyond that, a significant other’s best course of action is to show their Shellhead tender loving care over sexual stimulus. Indeed, many Shellheads are entirely incapable of sexual relations beyond participation in foreplay (they can never benefit themselves from foreplay, however). Grooming is a difficult job for a Shellhead, or anyone, so help in this field is usually greatly appreciated. Better by far, however, is care and attention shown to their palate. To make up for their lack of sensation, Shellheads tend to enjoy their food to the fullest. If your Shellhead S.O. still has a human anatomy underneath, cooking courses are recommended. If, however, he or she requires heavy minerals to replenish, a course in geology and/or metallurgy and some experimentation with different alloys is the way to go.
Dating and loving a speedster is a tricky business. They have a tendency to jump ahead of everyone else, often based on suppositions and assumptions. This is literally because they have to think faster than everyone else, which in turn can make them quite witty in social interaction. The problem is that they seem, to normal eyes, to collapse into depression for no apparent reason. What takes normal people hours or days of browbeating themselves over to accomplish can take a speedster several seconds. If you date a Speedster, be prepared for a rollercoaster ride in more ways than one. In the bedroom, friction is a Speedster’s bane (just like it is everywhere else). In their excitement they may also climax long before they’ve even started to rev their partner’s engine, or even damage them in their haste. The important thing for a Speedster to do in the act of love is to concentrate on timing over speed to slow themselves down; a metronome is an invaluable reminder of the passing of time, and will help a Speedster concentrate on rhythm. In addition, you can purchase speedster-grade lubricants and ‘slippery’ bedclothes that significantly reduce wear and tear on both lovers and furniture. A similar ‘slippery’ body condom is also available for a Speedster’s partner (it’s too dangerous for a Speedster to wear, considering the speeds at which they move, and their reliance on their sense of balance not to run into things). Non-flammable furniture may also be a good idea, particularly on dry days.
Much of what was said about spacial Warpers and Manifestors holds true here, only more so. Better than Warpers, telekinetic force can be shaped to your whim at a distance. Remember first and foremost to make sure your advances are wanted before you indulge. Also, it is very hard to precisely judge measurements over distances, particularly out of your line of sight (if you are capable of such things). It’s a good idea to have a safe word and a nonverbal cue (in case the mouth is occupied) so that your partner can let you know when you’re hurting rather than helping. Otherwise, telekinetic sex toys and limbs are an obvious ploy. But be sure that your partner likes pinching before you try it. If your partner is into bondage, telekinetic bonds are an excellent alternative to physical bonds, since if you are rendered unconscious for some reason the bonds will disappear, leaving your lover free, and you can dispel the bonds at a moment’s notice if they start to freak out. Just remember, the usual bondage rules still apply.
Much maligned, the tentacle has such myriad uses in sexual encounters that it is impossible for one to list them all. However, you can always count on an experienced tentacle user to find just the right spot to drive you wild as long as you’re not squeamish about such things. Prehensile hair is another matter, however. Supremely adapted for light feathering and stroking, it is vulnerable to snarling and matting when encountering normal bodily fluids, not to mention you get all that stuff in your hair. Also, said hair often breaks with rough treatment, and you’re always exposing yourself to having your hair grasped and torn away by an overeager lover, which hurts a lot. Try to keep the hair out of the way after foreplay, when things start to get sweaty.
Since the Incredibles aired, the cape has gotten a bad reputation in superheroic circles. Yes, the cape may get caught in things and give too much drag at high speeds. This is why most cape-wearers build quick releases of varying complexity into the clasp. There are a great many gadgets that can be built into a cape, far too many to be listed here, so its usefulness is undisputed.
Capes are also the second most recognisable superheroic garment and a close second on the list for fetishists, just behind the spandex suit. The best thing about a cape is sharing it with a partner, preferably while both parties are in a state of nakedness. Used in this way it acts much like an easily portable blanket.
Aside from vanity, girdles are a favourite of superheroines just because they keep everything in while leaving the arms and shoulders free. This also allows for some exposure of skin in supersuits with a wide V-neck without sacrificing protection for the torso. Girdles are also much harder to tear away, unlike brassieres, and are made of stiffer materials.
What you do have to be careful of is busted and broken strings. For some Exemplars, just the force that they can exert with their abs combined with the tightness of the girdle will cause its binding to break during great physical effort. Girdles with straps are generally preferable for this reason to those with laces. However, for those with a particular costume in mind, much stronger laces are available for an exorbitant price.
Some of you boys with Scots ancestry may like this idea. Traditionalists or not, despite Captain Scotland, the world at large is too set in its ways to accept a superhero in a skirt. Also be aware that, while you might think you’re being all patriotic or harking back to your ancestry, most Scots will consider you a fake unless you go without underwear like Captain Scotland. This fact is attributable to the deaths of no less than six Captain Scotlands over the last fifty years; the only surprising thing is that there haven’t been more. On the other hand, the Bagpipe Brigadier, a well known Scottish assassin, is also said to ‘go commando’ and he has survived for the last twenty years, so maybe there’s a trick he’s not sharing as yet.
Girls, only if you want to flash your knickers at everyone in the world and be thought of as a superslut. Despite the fashion craze of the 60’s and 70’s, most superheroines die of shame when subjected to photographs of themselves from the era. A few modern designs incorporate the miniskirt into a costume with a full or half body supersuit. Not bad for teenagers but tragic on older women. Oh, and guys… just no, ok?
On top of that, Miniskirts of any material tend to be relatively weak structurally and are vulnerable to snaring like all skirts and capes.
Eminently practical save for one purpose: sex. Or is it? In response to high demand, an anonymous Gadgeteer offers, via a shell company, the Penetrator 1600, a unisex exoskeletal frame with a variety of hardpoints that can mount a selection of interesting attachments as well as gadgets and devises. Composed of skimpy ultra light carbon fibre, the Penetrator is well suited to its primary function while being completely useless in a combat situation. The extra strength the exoskeleton provides is minimal, and the suit uses an external battery that you have to plug into the back of the gadget via an extra-long shielded cable. A HUD and ‘smart’ computer system can give you an analysis of your lover, calculate the best techniques and positions for maximum pleasure, and even guide your actions in a limited way via a ‘reflex response control’ system.
Just be warned, if your significant other is a Gadgeteer, they may be more interested in the suit than they are in you.
Why wear a skirt and a cape when you can wear a garment that combines the problems and benefits of both? A favourite of both Wizards and cultists, the robe is the traditional attire of those who work with mystical forces. This is usually because, during a ritual, you never know when you all might need to be skyclad; and thus you can easily be naked underneath the robe and discard it as necessary. This is also why robes are often ‘one size fits all’ affairs; nobody wants to be thinking about where they’re hurling their robe when what they should be concentrating on is the ritual at hand.
In addition to the problems with skirts and capes, robes often have long, pointy bits or dangling strips of cloth that exacerbate the problems with capes yet don’t provide anything useful to compensate. In general, unless they’re specifically a weapon that you can use against your enemies, leave the embellishments for your ceremonial gear.
If you’re a guy, generally steer clear. A costume has two purposes, practicality combined with a sense of theatricality. Shorts are ok for casual wear, but it’s hard to take a superhero wearing shorts seriously. Girls who want to show off a bit of leg love shorts of lengths from anywhere between zero and one inch long. This allows for maximum protection for the groin while greatly increasing their… charm. Often worn in conjunction with high leather stripper boots for maximum protection; just remember that you’re going to look like a skank. Otherwise fairly practical.
Like capes, Skirts can make up for their tendency to snare on the environment by providing concealability and added protection. The skirt has both hindered and saved many a superheroine over the years, enough so that these factors cancel each other out. It is recommended, however, that you wear something underneath the skirt to protect your legs and groin from obvious attack. In general, it is accepted that the skirt is more a costume for infiltration rather than combat.
Ok, ok, all of you who’ve done costume theory class know that skin-tight, elastic, bodysuits aren’t necessarily made of spandex. However, the advent of high strength cloth gadgetry has made this the standard uniform of the superhero, mainly due to ease of concealment underneath normal clothing. The iconic status of the garment isn’t the only reason that the spandex suit is the best selling superhero fetish item available from all good adult supply stores. The number of things you can do with it, such as cutting, tearing, or peeling it off, may also fuel the sensual fire. Naturally, it doesn’t help matters when this happens in the heat of battle; supervillains are often perverted enough that they don’t need help imagining horrible things to do to your body.
First, and most importantly, most supersuits come with spare patches for small holes and tears that will automatically bond with a surface of similar material. Most supers take some of these in their usual first aid pouches and may have boxes of spares back at home base. A better option that most people aren’t aware of as yet is the self-healing memory cloth that will heal tears all on its own and merely requires ‘nourishment’ in the form of a small block of raw materials. This option may be more expensive but pays for itself time and time again, particularly since larger holes can’t really be patched.
Fortunately, tearing strikes at the crotch are fairly rare in battle; and when they do occur the last thing you’re going to be worried about is flashing everyone in public. Unfortunately, women have a different issue. Strikes to the chest are very common, particularly with sharp implements. Tearing attacks are also common from villains who merely wish to see their opponent humiliated in public. For this reason, an armoured brassiere or girdle either underneath or over the top of the supersuit is highly recommended. Several models are collapsible, though activating them can ruin any normal brassiere that you happen to be wearing at the time.
Last but not least, there is a class of device specifically created with the supersuit and lethal embarrassment for the wearer in mind. So-called ‘crawler’ devices generally look like flat centipede constructs that try to slip down the neck or up the hems of a supersuit and may cause severe discomfort to the wearer in any number of fiendish ways. The only way to get rid of them is to forcibly remove the suit, generally leaving the wearer naked. For this reason, supersuits must be sealed around the neck, sleeves and ankles (assuming they don’t come with full head masks, gloves and booties) to be effective. Even so, several versions of crawlers can make their own holes, so some of the latest supersuits have anti-intrusion countermeasures. Finally, versions of the crawler have been made with a more pleasant goal in mind for the keen fetishist or the severely perverted villain.
It was only a matter of time until someone invented symbiotic clothing. These living entities generally look like ordinary clothes, only they feed off the upper dermal layer, scavenging dead skin, hair, sweat and microbiologicals for nutrients. The upside is that these symbiotes can have powers and abilities of their own, such as turning into armour, self-healing, or changing shape and colour based on the situation. The downside occurs if a mistake is made in their design or manufacture and the symbiote becomes a parasite and/or suddenly becomes sentient. Regular symbiotic clothing is generally happy having a host; if it’s intelligent at all, it will only be of a level similar to a dog or cat. Being host to a sentient symbiote is like being an Avatar, you’ll have a whole other being hanging around that needs more out of life than simple survival. Parasites, as the name says, will eventually suck you dry of something, be it bodily fluids, mental energy, or whatever. Sentient parasites are a real danger to the host and will require extreme measures to remove and destroy. Be careful with these things and make sure that your particular garment has been thoroughly tested before you wear it.
Yet another item that combines the problems with skirts and capes while retaining their benefits. On the other hand, trenchcoats are nowhere near as annoying as capes, since they leave your arms free and unhindered at all times. Also, when they’re done up, you could be wearing anything underneath…or not as the case may be.
Eminently practical for both sexes, trousers lose out by being a bit too plain and ordinary for the superbeing about town. On the other side of the coin, many mutants prefer regular clothes to emphasize that they’re just as human as everyone else, making a political statement. Otherwise, trousers tend to be boring unless you have access to tentacles. Then they can be quite fun.
From shirts to sweaters, there’s more stuff that you can wear on the upper half on your body than I have pages left in this book to describe them all individually. Like trousers and shorts, plain old shirts tend to be too ordinary for the average superbeing.
XII. Gross Structural Dystrophy (GSD)
Living with GSD is hard both for the sufferers and their loved ones. There are no hard and fast rules to pleasing a lover who has GSD; each one of them is as physiologically different as all humans are psychologically. Then, on top of that, they’re human too. Their erogenous zones may not be in the logical places. More than any other lover, you need to work, cooperate and experiment to find out what works for them. Extensive study into Mutant Biology may be essential, as GSD Marital Counseling is a fringe area full of hacks and fakes who know nothing about the topic. Their solutions are often wild guesswork, doing more harm than good. That being said, here are some things you might want to try in general to minimize the effect of GSD on your love life.
Quite beneficial in sex, the rubbing of fur against skin can be highly sensual and erotic. If you have fur, however, it is vital to keep yourself clean. Shower often, particularly after sex, or you will stink to high heaven.
Few cases of GSD are harder to live with than this, particularly for a lover. The first obstacle you face is that most people don’t like the feel of slime when they touch it. However, getting over this problem has its rewards: there’s really nothing that you can compare to sex with a slime person. Bathing in jelly doesn’t cover it, but can be good training. The problem a normal lover faces when they encounter a slime lover is usually where to stick what, why, and how. Fortunately, the answer is ‘wherever convenient’. Slime people’s anatomy usually reacts to sexual stimulus, their whole body can be like a clitoris/penis as long as they are in the mood - which is the trick. If they’re not in the mood, their bodies won’t interpret the signals the way you want, and it’ll just feel like any other touch. Romance is vital to a relationship with a slime person.
It’s also recommended that you avoid sex in high places if one of you is a slime person. Sex between normal people on rooftops results in several fatalities every year, the resultant loss of friction when making out with a slime person makes this eventuality much more likely. Though falls from any height aren’t generally as big a problem for slime people, the hydroshock from the impact channeled through the slime body can be particularly nasty for a normal lover.
Sex between slime people is rare and can often result in a commingling of the two bodies. While not life threatening, this can be highly confusing and inconvenient, as the two slime people must separate in a painfully slow process that can take several days.
Fact of life: tails get trod on. The thing that makes this worse for the humanoid mutant is that tails are extremely sensitive. In an erotic situation, this can make a tail good for manipulation, stroking or even masturbation. Just don’t get rough with it, be gentle.
Yes, everyone loves the romantic idea of flying. They’ve obviously never thought about what it’s like to lay down on their backs with two very large and bulky extra limbs sticking out of it. The biggest thing when having sex with a winged humanoid: don’t touch the wings. Winged humanoids are very sensitive about their wings and their wings, in return, are very sensitive. Damage to the membrane or feathers can adversely affect their flight capability. Even if the wings are merely vestigial, these instincts are often ingrained into the mutant’s subconscious. If you’re looking for a good grip, stick to the shoulders or hips.
XIII. Gender Transposed Mutants (GTM)
One of the little-talked-about possible side effects of mutating is the sudden change of a person from one gender to another. Quite likely, these people are scattered across campus, living among us as the gender as which they appear. Be aware that these ‘Changelings’ are going through a highly traumatic and frightening experience alongside shifts in hormones and brain chemistry. On top of that, they are surrounded by people who they KNOW simply will not understand them.
Norms despise GTMs for complicating their narrow world views. Mutants aren’t much better with the topic, since GTMs add an extra level of chaos on top of their already chaotic world. GSD sufferers tend to envy GTMs for their ability to hide among the normal-looking people and lead a relatively normal life. For this reason, a great many GTMs suffer in silence, feeling abandoned by those who cannot see beyond their own pain.
The key to dealing with Changelings is to realize that what any of us were in the past doesn’t matter, what we are NOW is all that matters.
Of course, the situation isn’t so simple for those who are intersexed. Very rarely, a mutant may gain the primary, secondary and tertiary sexual characteristics of the opposite sex while retaining their original gender to varying degrees of functionality. On the opposite end of the scale, a mutant may also lose some or all of their sexual characteristics.
Like GSD sufferers, hermaphrodites must face the monumental fear and ignorance of the average human or mutant. On top of that they face the practical challenges of learning to deal with both masculine and feminine issues as well as maintaining their hormonal balance. While many hermaphrodites are androgynous, most others are female in appearance due to the growth of breasts. Unless you can handle adversity, I highly recommend dressing as the gender you can best pass yourself off as. As long as people can subconsciously categorize you in some way, you’ll cut down the harassment that you’ll receive. One tip I can give to those hermaphrodites that must wear a dress, however, from a reliable source is white male briefs. With an elastic hem, white briefs can give you some extra room while stretching enough for your hips. Some women even prefer briefs over panties for comfort.
The benefit of hermaphroditism is, of course, sex. I’m told that experiencing both sides of the sexual equation at the same time borders on the religious. Of course, the difficulty is in finding an open-minded bisexual, since logistical problems make hermaphrodite-on-hermaphrodite sex extremely difficult. However, I hear that the default h/h sexual position is a variation on the ‘scissor sisters’ technique for lesbian relations.
MtF (Male to Female) GTMs are perhaps hit the hardest psychologically. A great deal of early cultural training for boys involves bolstering their sense of pride. Added to this is the cultural phenomenon (slowly shifting, but ever so slowly) of the value placed in having male children over female children. Taken together, many young men’s sense of self-worth is tied to their masculinity, and it may take some intense psychological therapy for an MtF GTM to come to terms with what they see as their diminishment. On top of this, they face the biological pressure of being able to bear children suddenly thrust upon them. In general, the MtF GTM loses all sense of identity at the same time as they gain whole new responsibilities.
The MtF GTM’s troubles can be greatly alleviated by a supportive family unit. Unfortunately, dysfunction inside the family after the MtF change is 40% more likely than with those who undergo GSD, even going so far as to disown the child. Compare to the 20% that hermaphrodites face (though it should be said that hermaphrodite metamorphoses are far rarer). MtF GTMs are also more likely to be subject to sexual harassment and abuse including, perversely, rape. Perpetrators are likely to include former friends and family members.
My advice to all MtF GTMs is to seek professional help. More than anything else, you need people who you can talk and relate to as well as the support of friends. The form you inhabit is far less important than what is inside, take advantage of the support services that are available and do not become content to suffer quietly.
By contrast, FtM (female to male) GTMs have it easier (though by no means easy). This is in part due to the fact that there is already a ‘normal’ medical condition where apparently female children become men with the onset of puberty, so there is a precedent (people just LOVE precedents that can be easily explained and, thus, make them feel more ‘normal’). Another reason is the cultural value of male children; the logic is similar to the clichéd consolation of the father of the bride: you’re not losing a daughter, you’re gaining a son. Simply put, women don’t feel as threatened in general by FtMs as men do by MtFs. That being said, FtMs can still expect to be the subject of scorn by women with an inordinate hatred of men. The worst things that FtMs have to cope with are the differing social mores and standards of behaviour between the sexes. Surprisingly, however, former women often make better men than quite a few born males.
The key to surviving as a GTM is learning to accept yourself as you are and be yourself, rather than allow others to impose their image of you. Confidence building exercises such as self defence classes are both positive and practical exercises to build your sense of self. Finally, be wary of those who would use this vulnerable period of your life to manipulate you. Stick to those who prove themselves trustworthy with no thought of reward or gain.
