DISCLAIMER: This MUD is for for adults. See 'help aup'. The following
is mature content intended for adults, which some people may find
objectionable. These guidelines are not intended for real life use
in any way.
Mudsex is acting out an intimate scene in the MUD, usually consisting
of heavy emote usage (see 'help emote'). Many people find the 60-character
limit on emotes crippling, but with a little creativity, one will find this
is not the case. In fact, consider it a good limit. Too-long emotes tend
to be trite, wordy and flowery and often the intended effect is lost.
Some suggestions for mudsex:
Have mudsex with a partner you trust. Logs can be exchanged easily.
While logs are easily doctored, people will believe what they want
Creators are watching. ALL THE TIME. If you are going to engage in
sexual activities in the MUD, remember that Big Brother is watching.
Do not do anything you'd be ashamed of someone else seeing.
There's no need for safe sex. This is a fantasy MUD! Engage in all the
rampant, deviant multiple-partner sex you want without repercussion! Just
keep the two previous guidelines in mind. Remember: Pregnancy and sexually
transmitted diseases have not been coded as of this helpfile. However, be
aware of other social repercussions. Engaging in intimacy with your baron's
wife without his permission may result in your character enjoying a permanent
It may depend on you and your partner(s), but it is usually a good rule of
thumb to keep it as subtle as possible. A MUD is about imagination, and if
your textual tryst is too vulgar and explicit, the sex may not be as enjoyable
for one or all of you. People generally like to fill in the blanks with their
minds. Words like 'cock, pussy, dick' are better suited to bedroom talk (real
life or on the MUD), but try to avoid using such slang in emotes.
Example of BAD mudsex:
Frank stuffs his huge, throbbing, rock-hard cock into your sopping pussy
and starts thrusting hard.
Example of better mudsex:
Frank roughly enters you and begins to move with a hard, steady pace.
You see, while you might want to reinforce the fact that your character's
penis is large, hard, and throbbing, this may be better indicated by spoken
text (Frank exclaims in dwarvish, 'I'm so hard for you, Jane!'), or already
inferred by your partner (who wants a flaccid, tiny penis in an imaginary
On the same token, try to avoid clinical terms. 'Jane lightly flicks her
tongue over your glans penis,' is a deal-breaker, folks.
It's good to establish a turn-based emote pattern in an OOC discussion before
engaging in intimate activity. You don't want the embarassing MUD-equivalent
of premature ejaculation happening to you because you emoted out of turn!
Frank turns you over, laying you on your stomach.
Jane wraps her legs around your hips.
Don't let this happen to you!
Try to avoid the whole one-handed typing bit. If your partner(s) are kept
waiting too long for a response from you, they may begin to feel awkward.
Just pull up the logs and have at it afterwards, people. *The DartMUD

Have some ideas ready, whether they be scenarios, descriptive words, or
something you wanted to try with your partner(s). It is the equivalent of
impotence for everyone involved to stand there waiting for you because you
can't think something decent up.
Keep anatomy in mind. For a good sexual experience, try to be mindful of
the way your body and everyone else's involved is built. Insisting a spyder
has a penis or a gnome and ogre can engage in intercourse is wrong. If your
character still wants to be involved sexually with a physically incompatible
character, it's probably best to suggest a racechange (in a sensitive and
polite manner, of course).
If you stick roughly to these guidelines, mudsex will be fulfilling and
enjoyable to all parties involved. Always be mindful of your partners and
