Characteristics

From Degrees of Lewdity Wiki
(Redirected from Sensitivity)
The Characteristics tab at the start of a new game.

In general, characteristics tend to slowly degrade over time, so the player will need to maintain them. These stats will tend to start at the bottom - unless certain backgrounds are taken - in which the player will need to work their way up. Choosing actions with the 'Deviancy', 'Promiscuity' or 'Exhibitionism' tagged at the end, found mostly during consensual encounters, will help build the stat.

The characteristics menu will also show the player's progress in specific skills and stats, as listed below.

This page will cover:

  • Lewdity Stats
  • Skills
  • Sensitivity
  • Insecurity

Lewdity Stats

The default Lewd Statistics for a fresh start.
Lewd Statistics completely maxed out.

Lewdity Stats are the primary focus. It is essential to monitor these statistics carefully if aiming for specific builds.

Skills

Skills are managed via the Characteristics Menu, and can be adjusted by the Player Character's actions.

They are categorised in several tiers: F, F+, D, D+, C, C+, B, B+, A, A+ and S.

Main Skills

The minimum statistics for Skills. The player starts with a 'None' ranking.
The statistics for Main Skills completely maxed out.

Main Skills can be much harder to max out, at the cost of not having to worry about skill decay.

Main skills are separated into different categories: Skulduggery, Dancing, Swimming, Athletics, Tending, and Housekeeping. Each skill has their own unique purpose and equally beneficial to improve.

For more information, visit this page: Main Skills

Sexual Skills

The minimum statistics for Sexual Skills. The player starts with a 'None' ranking usually.
The statistics for Sexual Skills completely maxed out.

These are leveled through use, and graded as F, D, C, B, A and S. They don't degrade over time. Vaginal and Penile are the only exclusive skills; decided by the chosen gender at character creation. Anyone can get implants or have their chest enhanced by parasites. All of the sexual skills can be leveled through consensual or non-consensual sex. During consensual encounters, these skills will boost Characteristics; the ones with numbers, like Deviancy 4 or Promiscuity 3.

School Skills

The default/minimum statistics for School Skills.
The statistics for School Skills completely maxed out.

School subjects degrade over time, giving the incentive to go to school; or at least study on a regular basis. These skills use a modified letter grading system (F, E, D, C, B, A and A*). The better the grade, the harder it is to maintain it.

For more information, visit this page: School Grades

Weapons Skills

The statistics for Weapons Skills with a new character. Note that nets will be listed as ???? until they are unlocked.
Weapons Skills completely maxed out.

In combat, there are two weapons the player can use in certain situations, those being pepper spray and lurker nets. With each use, the player's ability to wield the weapon in question will gradually increase, granting the player unique perks when using them. Like main skills, weapon skills do not degrade over time.

Miscellaneous

Sensitivity

Sensitivity is split into four parts - chest, mouth, genital and ass sensitivity.

The player's sensitivity is on a scale between 1 and 4. The player can tell how sensitive a specific body part is by the description it's given

  • No description: <1.5 Sensitivity
  • Receptive: 1.5- 2.5 Sensitivity
  • Tender: 2.5-3.5 Sensitivity
  • Sensitive: >3.5 Sensitivity

The Arousal gained from the player or someone else touching the Sensitive body part is a multiplier directly tied to the value. Meaning that a player with a tender pussy can expect to take around 3x more Arousal when being penetrated in most cases, for example. An important exception is when masturbating for the Café chef job. No matter what, the player's Sensitivity is treated as if it is 1 there.

The player has few options for increasing Sensitivity:

  • At the beginning of the game, the player can choose to make themselves more sensitive
    • Normal (x1)
    • Sensitive (x2)
    • Very sensitive (x3)
  • The player can choose to overdose on growth pills from the Hospital Pharmacy. Note that the player must pass out from the overdose, getting the text: "You end up waking in agony and wondering what had happened to you. After a brief feel around your body, you shriek in pain after briefly touching your [breasts/penis]. You end up spending more time lying down till you feel like you can move without something else happening to you."
    • Regardless of what pills the player has taken, this will increase the sensitivity of all body parts by +0.25. Meaning a player who started out on normal sensitivity would have to overdose 12 times to reach max Sensitivity. Note that overdosing on multiple types of pills increases the chance of passing out, and overdosing on any pill increases that pill's effects.
  • The player can attempt to masturbate while held in the Forest Lake Ruins Underwater Prison by the Ivory Wraith. Attempting to stop and failing due to lacking control will have the Wraith force the player to continue. Upon orgasm, the player's genital and/or breast sensitivity will increase by +0.5. As with everything else that comes in this Prison, there is a cost (+ Fatigue, -- Purity, ++ Trauma, +++ Aphrodisiac.)
  • Once a day, the player can enter the Tentacle Forest and, upon orgasming, fail to escape the Bulbous Creature on any option. Once the player fails, they have the option to Cover your chest, which will raise genital sensitivity by 0.5.

Getting drugged increases your arousal gain by up to 100%, depending on your drugged level. Swallowing an aphrodisiac pill increases the drugged level by 30%. This means a player with very Sensitive parts under the influence of an Aphrodisiac can find themselves in trouble very quickly as they orgasm much, much faster.




Insecurity + Acceptance

Insecurity

Over time, attackers may focus on specific parts of the player and comment on them, mocking the player for it. This is most prevalent if the PC has a particularly small or very large penis and/or small/large breasts. If insecurities persist, it creates damaging effects for the player to endure.

Additionally, there is also Acceptance. The player will become accepting of their flaws, and this will make them more immune to the damaging effects.
