Swarms are one of many toggles that can be enabled within Degrees of Lewdity. Currently there are swarms of many tiny creatures to be found across the world.


  • Enable Swarms in Settings. 


Swarm encounters are always listed as non-consensual. It involves you facing off against swarms (as the name suggests) of numerous, if not countless of tiny creatures. These range from all types of creatures, but usually small enough to a point where they are able to rummage around your body.

The premise behind it is to get yourself to safety, or alternatively fend off one of the swarms. It is best to try to swim to safety, however.

Swarms may try to encircle you, surrounding you with more creatures. You may have received enough attention from them to a point that they completely surround you as if you are in a "living pit."

They may try to swarm around your groin, moving towards your private parts and squirming into them. They may also take a liking to your nipples. This adds Arousal each turn.

There's a chance that when trying to prevent swarms from what they are doing, there will be so many that some will make it through your guard.


Currently there are swarms of many tiny creatures to be found across the world, these are:

  • Fish - Found when swimming in the Forest Lake, and the Forest Lake Ruins.
  • Snakes - Found when exploring the Forest.
  • Spiders - Found in an attic of a residence on Danube Street when helping someone find an old painting of theirs. 
  • Slimes - Found within the player's bath, near their bedroom in the Orphanage, within the prison rut.
  • Maggots - Found within the Elk Street Landfill, when searching through the trash.
  • Worms - Found in a rare event within Sirris' science classroom, involving a terrarium.
    • Also found in a rare event within the Underground Brothel. For more information, visit this page: Brothel Worms Event
    • The Brothel swarm show has plentiful amounts of worms available, and is generally recommended.
    • Another location is within an event involving crates on the Docks.
  • Eels - can be found when swimming in the Ocean near the Beach.
    • Has a chance to also appear when trudging through water in the Sewers.

Escaping Swarms

There are two types of swarm encounters: swimming and non-swimming. In the swimming encounters, the goal is to swim far enough to escape the swarm, either by the player pulling themselves out of the water or making the swarm lose interest. In non-swimming encounters, the player must simply fend off the swarm for a certain number of turns before the encounter will end on its own.

Having a high swimming skill will help greatly when escaping swarms, as it allows the player to use their legs to swim in addition to their arms, letting them escape much quicker. Fending off the swarms in these encounters is mostly pointless, since ending the encounter as quickly as possible will be better in most cases.

In the encounters where the player can't swim away, they will have no choice but to fend off the swarms until the encounter ends. One of the best ways to do it is to use both hands to clear out any swarms that try to go for the ass or genitals, and covering those parts if they're completely clear. Be sure to use feet to keep some of the swarms at pay, and make sure to free the player's arm as soon as one of the swarms try to constrict it. Just do everything to keep the player's stress from rising too much, and the encounter will end without too much trouble.


Swarm encounters may tie in with anal parasitic pregnancy. There's an odd chance they will leave behind an unfertilised egg when they go deeper into your ass, and that the player will need something to fertilise the egg with.
