Among the five genders in the Land We Know there are 25 possible sexual preferences. Eight of these preferences can not result in offspring, so persons with those orientations are called recreationals. The other seventeen orientations are open to the possibility of reproduction, so they are called breeders.
In the Land We Know people do not choose their sexual orientation, they are literally "born that way" and each preference is marked by a unique magic power in every gender except men (due to the passing of their god El Shaddai). The prevalence of each orientation differs widely.
There are five same sex matchups, two opposite sex matchups, and eight mixed matchups possible:
|<-Masculine |Feminine-> |- |Gay top |Gay bottom |- |Lesbian butch |Lesbian femme |- |Rough top |Rough bottom |- |Flex butch |Flex femme |- |Bliss femme |Bliss femmer |- |Straight male |Straight female |- |Trite male |Trite Female |- |Plunge |Snare |- |Tribade |Snatch |- |Tyke |Muffle |- |Bauble |Knot |- |Merry |Trinket |- |Snap |Bent |- |Bear |Twink |- |Predator |Shag |}
