Sex Advice From World of Warcraft Players
What has World of Warcraft taught you about dating?
I've found that the true nature of people tends to come out when they think they can hide behind an avatar. For example: your boyfriend gets ridiculously jealous that you have better gear, or your girlfriend uses her gender to manipulate people. There's no faster way to find out what a jerk your potential partner is than seeing what happens when loot you both need drops.
If you belong to the Alliance, and you date a member of the Horde, how do you keep the conflict contained to the game?
Why keep the conflict contained to the game? I think this makes for some very interesting real-life sexual role-play scenarios!
What's the best way to ask a fellow player out in real life without coming off weird?
Definitely don't do it over in-game chat. You should at least start by speaking over voice chat to each other, make sure the person really is the gender/age they say they are. Then move on to telephone conversations, and try to schedule a visit. Isn't hook-up opportunities what BlizzCon is REALLY for?
My mom walked in on me and my girlfriend having sex on the living room couch. This was the first time she ever met my mom, and now she's too mortified to ever come back. How can I make this situation comfortable for everyone?
First, you should apologize to your mother, assure her that you were having safe sex, and tell her how embarrassed your girlfriend is. After you've done that, you should talk to your girlfriend and let her know that everything is fine. Then offer to introduce her to your mother for real. If I were her, I'd be open and say something like, "Hi, Mrs. XYZ, I'm really sorry about how we met, but I'm hoping we can move past this," with a big, friendly smile.
I like watching porn during sex, but I've always been slow to introduce it in the bedroom because it might freak my date out. Should I be worrying about this so much, or should I go ahead and pop in a DVD?
I think every couple should talk about sex openly; that said, I wouldn't "Go ahead and pop in a DVD." Talk to her casually and see how she feels about porn. If she's open to it, perhaps start with something a little more soft-core before breaking out the crazy stuff. Make sure you are watching this to enhance the experience together. Don't make it seem like you're imagining Jenna Jameson's face on her body.
It's rare when a guy can make me come, but my vibrator has always done the job. Is it offensive to bring it out when I'm with a guy, assuming that he won't be able get me off?
Hell no! Let him know that you enjoy it, and want to enjoy it together with him. Show him how to use it on you so he can play a more proactive role. In my experience, guys' finding out you were faking an orgasm is far more devastating to their egos than a girl who knows what she wants and how she likes it.
My girlfriend can't afford her apartment anymore and has to move back in with her parents. The distance could seriously harm our relationship. Asking her to move in makes sense financially, but I'm afraid it's too early. What do I do?
If you think it's too early, then maybe it is. Perhaps the wisest choice is to let her move back and save some money; meanwhile, get her a subscription to World of Warcraft and play with her on it. When my fiance had to move back to Australia for a few months, we used World of Warcraft as a stand-in for seeing each other. You know what they say, absence makes the heart grow fonder. Maybe after a few months it won't be "too soon" anymore.
