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.

Mara  is the goddess of love, not diabella.

They're are both called goddess's of love. Mara is the aligned toward motherly and romantic love, where Dibella is more about arts, and erotic love. Dibella is the hippie "free love" to Mara's more traditional ways.

Mara is the the Divine of love. Dibella is the Divine of beauty.

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.

XD those priestesses are rather touchy about that back room in their temple.
