Louise guests in our second episode where we discuss the sometimes taboo subject of sexuality, gender and identity in RPGs.

We briefly touch upon gender stereotypes, clichés and how a group can be inclusive to new and/or different players.

We debate how to handle sex-scenes, why some players might shun the idea of playing the opposite sex and other embrace it, and whether it should really be a big deal if your character is a sex worker.

And to top it off we also touch briefly on disability in games and playing a character with a disability.

Big thanks to Scouterna, the Guides and Scouts of Sweden, for letting us use their locale for recording! The art in the background of this episode is from the game Pathfinder by Paizo and are used here in accordance with the Fair Use act.
