Predicting the sexual activity of VN characters

#1 Post by BunnyAdvocate » Sun May 13, 2018 2:51 pm

I've been analysing the sexual content of VNs, what's become more common, what gets the best ratings, and what content tends to come together; and thought I'd present some of my results in a slightly different way: in a quiz! Using the extensive character database on vndb, I tracked which appearance and personality traits were more or less likely to engage in types of sexual activity, and put the results in a quiz format so you can enter the tropes and it'll tell you how the percentages diverge from the average.

This is a slightly silly way to present the results, but I thought you guys might enjoy it.

You can try the quiz here.

*Fills this in for the fun of it despite being a man.*

*Fills in completely regular things like being blonde and having brown eyes.*
Okay, perfectly normal.

*Sees strap-on dildo amongst the choices of a regularly worn accesory.*
Wait, what kind of women does BA think live in the real world?

*Everything that comes after.*
I was not ready for this.

A fun little test, although I think my manliness got in the way of results. I didn't get more than 5% in any category (I don't know to how high they're supposed to go?) and didn't even know most of the terms used there. Guess my anime-slang knowledge isn't as good as I thought.

Haha yeah it was an odd choice to include, but I thought it might result in some funny results so I kept it in. Vndb certain has some "unusual" sexual trait tags.

The percentages can go pretty high, but only tend to do so if you onlu answer a few questions. When you answer lots of them, any sexual quirks tend to get averaged out. So like if you just choose "brocon" for the personality section, you get +45% incest.

Yeah, it's pretty cool, but doesn't seem too useful. Like Mammon said, I've done several just as normal anime characters I've seen, and don't get precentages outsides of a 3-4% range, which just seems statistically insignificant. It also seems on experimentation that the options with the most impact are the personality characteristics, which makes sense, but it's no surprise that a pervert is, well, perverted .... :? Or as you say, a brocon is likely to engage in incest.

Yeah it's not really that useful, it's just meant to be a more fun way of presenting some of this data than a massive spreadsheet. I'll have a more serious analysis post on this topic in a while, but until then I thought a few of you might get a laugh out of it.

Like I said, it's amusing. It might be more interesting if you provided a breakdown on the results page of which choice impacted what percentage.

As always, I look forward to your in-depth data dives.

Oh that's a good idea about listing the factors involved, I'll look into that for the male version.

I'm just wondering how on Earth there are enough characters who participate in "Consensual Porn Production" for that to be a category, haha.

For male characters, there's 38! There's a ton of nukige VNs on VNDB. It's even higher for female characters at 280. Although as there are around 3x more female characters than male, we'd expect it to be higher, but it's also a higher proportion of female characters too.

Alright, let's see what kind of man I am...

*Fills in heterosexual.*
*Test still calls me gay with anal sex as preference as the first and second results because of demon blooded.*
Huh...

Well okay then...
*Backs off slowly before anyone can mind-control me as the test suggested.*

I did the male version for my DnD character and got surprisingly accurate results :'D I guess it makes sense that a bisexual character would have MxM sex (my character does, so good job test) and apparently having a pendant necklace is also connected to gay sex and anal sex... I guess that kind of accessory is more common in BL, huh? All in all, my character would probably do all the things listed in green in his results. I guess this test works way better for characters rather than real people, which makes sense. Especially when the character is trope-y to begin with - I originally made my character as a joke with the premise of "the edgiest character I can possibly create" so he's somewhat trope-y even though he's grown into a full fledged character during the year I've played as him.

When I did the female version as myself I didn't get nearly as interesting results.

@Mammon Ah right I think demon type characters are kind of common in otome and yaoi VNs?

@Aviala oh that's a fun way to use it, to run your D&D character through it. I'm glad you got some fun results. There are far more female characters than male ones, so I find their results tend to be a little more averaged out overall and less fun.
