Can Warforged get laid?

I guess this has been topic when discussing human sexuality: Enslavement by sex. So following the though, can't there be a group of (most probably female) "sexforged" that keeps a band of (then male.. at least mostly) humanoids under control by sex? But maybe that'll be too perverted, even for fantasy role playing games.
I hope a DM I know never reads this, because I know he'd absolutely want to use this idea.

This is pretty much implied of the mord-sith (along the SM part ofc) so it is not really unprecedented in fantasy at all.

No, really.

I know they can't reproduce.

But can they get laid?
No, and nor would they want to. There's no biological urge. Even if you gave them the equipment to participate in sexual intercourse with a humanoid partner, they'd feel no pleasure from it.

I think this sort of thing - and the lack of any physical sex*, as opposed to mental gender - is part of what make warforged so interesting.

I found that writers perversions rather disconcerting and I am bloody liberal

My old page about erotic magic

Wonder if I could use the flavors with 4th edition .... and which class this variety of witch might be.

it's a good series, but unfortunately it frequently devolves into them having sex after the first one, at least the plot line is interesting (it never in the first books approaches Twilight "Saga" in dumbness, nor as perverted).I got to the fifth one, does it get less messed up?

It has been years since I read past book 1 - reread it recently inspired by the TV series. (but I dont think I got much further than you are talking.) I admit it was well crafted in its way. And the strong proponent of intellectualism alongside sexuality appealed.

Honestly the most perverse sexual act in fantasy should go to Memories of Ice from the Malazan books of the fallen (where they have an army, the Children of the Dead Seed conceived of cannibalistic female religious fanatics who rape the men of conquered cities and kill them trying to impregnate themselves of the ejaculation that typically follows violent death in males).

And now I have this idea about an order of ninja prostitutes that follow a certain empire's army in my campaign. . .

Warforged sex?

*cough*newBSG*cough*wheeze*sputter*

On the issue of sex, some warforged seek to fit in with society, so I can imagine a warforged wanting to engage in a romantic relationship but the way I see it, this would be pure mimicry.

I've been in relationships like that.

There are a number of DC superheroes/villains that desperately seek to fit into human sexuality.

Data from Star Trek also fits this mold.
Edward Scissorhands and Frankenstein, etc....

It is not necessarily erotic but can be filled with pathos.
This type of approach to a character in game play might become stereotypical and boring. The afore mention characters explore most of what an outsider would look like as they explore the limitations of being a Warforged.

Cylons in the recent Battlestar Galactica fit in the same mold. They are kind of sexy and erotic (and dirty minded too).

No, really.I know they can't reproduce.But can they get laid?
Was the original question and Iv heard yes ,no and allot of why, why would they want too, their constructs, they were built for war.
And I believe that people are getting hung up on these two things.

1. While yes 90+% of warforged were built for war some weren't, and since the war has been over some were built in secret so could these ones have been built for something else.Also just because some one has been trained for war doesn't mean that they cant find a new purpose in life after the war.After all isn't that one of the reasons to play a warforged is to find a new meaning to life.

2. Warforged are not Constructs there Living Constructs and yes there is a big difference between the two. Were construct are emotionless mindless machines or statues, Warforged think and feel, there free to create and express them selves, granted the majority of warforged are the emotional equivalent of a depressed child doesn't mean they cant learn to be more human after all isn't that the entire purpose of the Reforge class to learn to be more living and less construct.

Mentally.... It was brought up weather a warforged was mentally capable of love and lust and I say yes to both, because a warforged is capable of emotion.
We are shone this threw warforged in game such as the Lord of Blades who shows hatred for all living creatures who he sees as weak, but also in warforged who choose to fallow the path of religion which takes faith and devotion both of which are complex and strong emotional things.We are also shown emotion and emotional learning in the Reforged who strive to be more human and less construct.
Because warforged are beings that love to both learn an experience life. Its easy to assume that a
warforged would pick up the emotions of love and lust over time, after all love is in all parts of a warforged's new life . Whether it be the warforged Bard that sings of love or the warforged bodyguard who sees it at the the bordello she watches over or the warforged priest that marries a couple even a warforged Druid sees animals coupling and baby animals born. So its ignorant to say that a being that is curious and wants to experience life, and that sees both love and sex that both major parts of life would not want to try them out for them selves.

Physical...Now we come to the main point of all of this can a warforged get laid or physically experience sex..Once again I say yes as was brought up early its easy for a warforged to learn about sex and how to perform it. Any one who has had sex or seen a porn or read the Kama sutra knows that there are many positions and acts of love that involve no genitalia at all making it easy for any warforged to participate in sex. As to whether or not the warforged gets pleasure out of it or not that depends on the warforged and there exp with love and sex.
For instance a warforged who has little exp in ether subject might get nothing but the exp of the act. Were a warforged who's lived around and exp such acts might of learned that when touched in a certain way or caressed in a certain spot that its supposed to produce pleasure, and therefore has learned that when touch or caressed in those spots and in that ways that its pleasure that there feeling and there for get pleasure out of the exp of love or sex.
To take it another step those warforged that choose to take there gender Identity further can easily go threw body modification. easy done when either taking the Reforge class or threw the Unarmored Body feat.
In either case the metal plating and much of the metal components are removed leaving only stone and wood which can then be manipulated threw the wood and stone shape spell thus giving the warforged a more feminine or masculine body shape as well as functioning sex organs making sex more of a pleasure and exp for the warforged.
Also fun fact the wood used in the construction of most warforged is mostly Darkwood and Living Wood a wood that does not die when cut down. Making the majority of a warforgeds body a living bio mass of plant matter. So it easy to think that if Two warforged who have both gone threw the body modification and have had sex that its possible for the male to fertilize /impegnate/pollinate the female warforged thus giving birth to a baby warforged months later granted the child would be more plant and less construct. Also that's assuming you find two warforged that are like minded and that have both gone threw the body modification and that its the right time of the year and the female warforged is in bloom.

OP: sure, who said every warforged was created for war purpose? Think about Rachel in Blade Runner.

Some could have "please" functions and body forms that could handle this. The remaining question would be: do these creatures can feel love/passion/pleasure?

If your group is made of mature people that could be a very nice background for your char.

OMG, I can't believe I registered on the forum just for replying this post. (well, google gives a link for this topic when you search "warforged names" :blush:)
As I can see this discussion is very old, but I still hope I will be able to find someone to whom my thoughts might be useful.
My opinion is yes, yes they can. I currently have a charecter warforged who not only can have sex, but can feel plasure. (oh no, plase, let me finish before pressing "reply" button with "no, this is impossible", or "no, you suck" replyes) The main idea not about in just saying "yes, it's possible" but in writing a good background, where you explain how it happened, why it happened. Describe warforged own thoughts about it, the way he was trying to find a place in this world when he understood he not axactly a constract with a soul, but yet, not exactly a living creature. Make other players believe in it!
Next stage is the DM: here I don't see any reasons why a DM can disagry with the idea of a warforged with feelings (in my example it's all possible feelings a living creature can feel: pain, cold or hot temperature, sickness, illness, need in food, sleep, etc.) An absence of this feelings was an advantage of your character... giving him all this stuff you just nerfed him! I can see a DM only happy about it.
If you don't want to give your warforged any tactile feelings, it's even more easy... all will depend on a good bg story.
in conclusion - every game in every group are differnt. starting the same campaign two different groups of players will able to came to absolutely different result... sometimes so different, that you won't be able to even tell it was same campaign. So what the reson to repeat every 5 minutes "but the core book says" (well, I agree you can do it when it's about game mechanics)? Imagine, create, and ROLEPLAY. IMHO it's the best way to do.
