The questions are simple:
  • Would you prefer it if your 'partner'* said you were a great GM or that you were great in bed.
  • Which would hurt you more - he/she told you you were a crap GM or crap in bed.
The poll is open, and private, so please tick the two that apply. Please show a little respect for Eric's Granny in any replies.

Mod's, I know this is a little racy, so i won't be offended if you close it. It's not actually about sex per se - it's more about what people value and what their self esteem is tied to (which is why I asked both sets of questions). If you can amend the poll to read partner, though, that would be great.

*Please take 'partner' (girlfriend in the poll)' to read any significant other - wife, boyfriend, husband, mistress, honeybunny, friend with benefits, old squeeze, trouble and strife, ball and chain, current crush, person you are stalking etc - in the questions and polls. Sorry if anyone felt excluded!

I'd have phrased the beginning of the question differently, i.e., "which would you prefer:".

Even if I wasn't significant other-less currently, the question is too limited because the answer that I feel matters isn't one of the choices.

Hmm, I have about ten people who could express an opinion on my qualities as a DM. Only my wife can reliably say whether or not I'm good in bed. Plus, I make more of an effort in bed. ;)

And another thing: if I'm a lousy DM one of the other players can take over and everybody will still be happy. If I'm lousy in bed, there aren't too many options.

I tried that (which would you prefer) but it wouldn't have worked as well for the latter two questions, and I was in a hurry to get the poll up and you can't edit them, dammit.

Re: your second point, if you add too many questions, you can dilute the point, and there will always be an option missing for someone. Note though, that the poll is more about what people value / esteem in themselves than about sex (You may know you're not a great sexual partner, but to be told you are a rubbish GM too)

How important is it to you to be thought a good GM by the person closest to you? This thread asks you to examine that idea, albeit in a provocative way.

In any case, the poll is just a poll. If you have other options to add, feel free to comment on them in the thread :)

As much as I advocate for an "As much gaming as possible" philosophy, this poll clearly shows that some people have their priorities screwed up if this is even a question. :lol:

I can't address too much of that without danger of crossing the "grandma" line. To be short, what is important to me in an SO is how zie feels about the whole me, not just my prowess in the sack.

Regarding the second paragraph, that depends on if my SO plays RPGs at all. We can assume, for the sake of this poll, that my hypothetical SO does.

I believe some posts by myself and my SO on facebook triggered this poll. :blush:

I want my SO to think highly of me, no matter the subject area.

IMO, she's just sore about some rulings I made during our last session. :p

SO: Post using your SO's account. ==> I love my boyfriend very much even with his bad gm'ing (hes not that bad but he could improve). When it comes to the bedroom though, Im the gm there so it would be his option of me there. Lol :3

Unfortunately I've never slept with anyone I gamed with.
I'd love to game with my boyfriend, but none of the ones I had ever felt interested in that.
So, what matters is the opinion on bed performance.

(For the record, I'm HAPPY)

Without being silly, I actually have run many one-on-one sessions for my wife in bed (comfort and in the other room from the kids being the main reasons). I naturally went for the obvious answer, but after thinking on it momentarily, my "in the bed" esteem doesn't need a boost. I actually prefer to hear good things about my GMing (and that has nothing to do with the arrangement of my priorities).

This poll only works for unmarried straight men and unmarried gay women. And perhaps a few lesbians trapped in a man's body.

I know it had meant significant other & not just girlfriend. I was just making a small joke... and, I also don't have a girlfriend. I edited my post just to make that clear.
