For women: how do you feel dating feminine males?

#1 Post by jack_norton » Fri Jul 20, 2012 7:21 am

In Loren sequel, which won't be out before next year, there will be some interesting new characters:
Image
Nook the shaman (GxB and BxB), Selith the half-lizarwoman (GxG) and Samaras (GxB).
As you can see Nook is quite... female looking :mrgreen: I made that based on feedback of some gay male players, who wanted some more feminine looking men. But I'm curious about women. Do you like that kind of male? or he does look too much feminine? Would you participate in a private shaman ritual with him? :lol:

I have no problem with more feminine looking male characters providing they are interesting. However, and this might be because the image is fairly small, the pose looks a little odd for a guy. It looks like the exaggerated pose a women might take to thrust out breast and buttocks, which doesn't make sense in a male character (it looks VERY similar to the lady next to him). I think it's the way the back curves in and the curve of the hips since they are mostly female biological traits. Adding in some key male features like an Adam's apple and the iliac crest might help him looking more male without over doing it. Hitting androgynous ground correctly can be tough, so it looks intended rather than a mistake. I like his hair though :)

Probably not, because I find guys who look more masculine to be more attractive. I'd probably go for Selith and Samaras before I would Nook. Unless it turns out Nook has a super amazing personality, in which case I can get over it.

Also, bending that way looks a bit uncomfortable.

Edit: I actually mean Nook and Selith bending that way looks uncomfortable. What I said was a bit non-specific. >_>

Eh, I watch anime, effeminate men are the norm there. Nook looks like a proud jerk though, my instinct is to avoid him and hope he doesn't have evil plans that involve me.

I would probably attempt Nook's path right off, unless I saved him for last. Both are compliments from me. XD I usually do the guys I only sorta like in the middle. He looks like the type of guy I chase in VNs. Kinda grumpy. Hehe. I like that pose and I adore his outfit. I'd like to squeeze his hips. /weird fetish

I hope you don't change him, lol. ^^; I love him~

As long as I can tell their gender, I don't care.
But characters that seem to have a vague gender creep me out (simply because I kind of dislike wondering who I'm talking with).
But if it is a feminine guy and I get to know that he is exactly that, then everything is fine.
I only dislike it, if there is aplaying around about "You see that dude?" "Nah, thats a chick" "I tell you, that one's a guy" "Look again, 'tis a girl" and I just stare at the character and have that very same conversation in my head too.

No no, I won't change him. I think is rather unique so I want to keep it as he is. I was just asking out of curiosity what people (women in particular) think :) there are plenty of more masculine males in the game to date!

I love feminine male characters, i feel they look well groomed... and i dont like messy looking guys or beefcake type unless they have a certian charm or cute eyes for example. Everyone has different tastes, i think Nook looks cute and i would definitely participate in a private shaman ritual with him.

I really really like feminine male characters. There should be more of them :D
Though I begin to wonder whether mine are too feminine because people always think they're female

I actually love feminine men. Heck, I liked them even before I got into anime. It may be because I'm pansexual and I just don't really mind if a woman or man is masculine or feminine or a combination in any way physically or personality wise. I'm fine with however anyone is. I have preferences, sure, but I'm ok with most everything.

Short version: Stereotypical pansexual don't give no damns.~

I love his design, but I would be in no way attracted to him. He does look extremely feminine, though, especially with the larger sized hips. Nook and Selith almost have the same lower half xD Androgyny is definitely a good thing. I'd probably play that path because the character looks interesting. I can't wait to see them colored :D

As far as personal preferences... The burlier, the better. I think it's more about a thick bone structure than muscle, actually.

I am all about the androgynous characters, yum. Although I like it both ways. Boyish girls too! Taste the rainbow! :)

I don't know who did the research, but I think it's been said younger women like more feminized-looking men.

I can tell you right now, in my 20's I would have thought Nook was kinda cute. In my 30's...eh...

As some other noticed on twitter Selith is the first female character (and not the last one) of the game to wear pants! 8)

Yeah, but isn't there a giant gap in them? Seems like that's more space than what's needed for her tail. <_<
