Skyrim - Interested In Me? by TomPreston Skyrim - Interested In Me? by TomPreston
In Markarth there is a temple to Dibella, the goddess of LOVE. While Skyrim is generally gender neutral, this is one occasion where I felt that the dialogue was written specifically for a male player. Playing as a female character I found the dialogue to be... unusual and kinda pervy. Hence why in my review I referred to them as "the horny priestesses," because they just want to show everyone a good time regardless of gender or sexual orientation.

EDIT: It has come to my attention that the dialogue for the women is different from the men, so the priestesses are really just kinda more open towards women. Even still, the writing still felt more like a dude trying to write a female bisexual character and that's more or less what I was perplexed by.

That has to do more or less with a religious matter. Dibella is the god of love basiclly. Her commandments basically meaning teaching people in erotic arts. In a way, you see this at fifteen indirectly.

On the flipside: as far as I can tell, the priestess of Dibella (I forget her name) is the only female marriage option who does not become inexplicably mousey after said marriage. I thought she sounded confident and even playfully disrespectful at times.

I love Skyrim, but admittedly the dialogue could be much better, particularly when it comes to the romance/marriage stuff.

If I were more attractive, I'd make a great Priestess of Dibella. Pansexuality, hell yeah!

This makes sense as Skyrim is full of bisexual people. Maybe there is something in the water.

Honry Priestesses...?

:iconosakaomgplz: OH. MY. TALOS.

IT'S A EUPHEMISM.

ALL THE PRIESTESSES IN MARKARTH THAT ARE "COMMUNING WITH DIBELLA" IN THE BACK ROOM OF THE TEMPLE, IT ALL MAKES SO MUCH SENSE NOW.

Skyrim is bisexually very freespirited.
Men can marry other Men, Women other Women.
Its interesting how they are all so free of hate and contempt between such stuff,
while they totally gore each other when it comes to the story of a god who was once a human.

You can play a human character and even a Highelf-woman shows interest in you
if you just wear an amulet of Mara. She is snobby but BY THE NINE that surprised me really.
