OOC: Love Story Poll (serious one)

This is a serious poll, 'cause some of the characters in my work-in-progress are facing this situation.

Imagine that you are a romantically and sexually inexperienced young man from a conservative and homophobic society.

Sure thing, I'm a first-rate roleplayer
11(37.9%)
Ugh, do I have to?
4(13.8%)
I *am* most of that
3(10.3%)
No can do, Bard
1(3.4%)
OK.
10(34.5%)

Imagine, further, that you have fallen in love and are enjoying a first-rate adolescent romance with a person who is physically indistinguishable from a lovely girl of your own age and social class.

Sure
7(24.1%)
Yummy!
5(17.2%)
Wait, what's this "physically indistinguishable" clause?
13(44.8%)
I can't imagine *ever* loving a girl
1(3.4%)
I can't imagine *any* adolescent romance being at all nice
2(6.9%)
That's not love, it's infatuation
1(3.4%)

But actually the girl is *really* a member of a race of hermaphrodites, genetically engineered as warriors. She's had her mind transferred temporarily to the girl body. She's 100% honest about this; you've known it since you met her. Your homophobic native land (currently far away) would count you+her as a Bad Relationship.

That makes it more interesting!
17(58.6%)
That's gross and horrible!
1(3.4%)
Keep the romance far from home, and don't think about the real body
10(34.5%)
My imagination just broke.
1(3.4%)

The girl dies trying to save you from a Fate Not Nearly As Bad As Death But Still Pretty Bad.

*sob*
11(37.9%)
stupid girl, why'd she do that?
3(10.3%)
ooh, romantic!
3(10.3%)
now I am miserable
12(41.4%)

The loss of the girl-body then causes her to return to her own body, the hermaphrodite warrior one.

Yay, she's not *dead* dead
14(48.3%)
I'm glad I knew about that body or I'd call the author on this one
7(24.1%)
I see where this is going...
8(27.6%)

Now, remembering stuff like "homophobic background" and "inexperienced", how do you react?

Yummy yummy, more bits to play with!
3(13.0%)
I love her still, but I can't even stand to hold her hand or kiss her
11(47.8%)
She is my best friend but I can't love her
6(26.1%)
I want to be her love but she had better be ultra-femmy in public
3(13.0%)
Too freaky. I break up with her.
0(0.0%)

Or ...

If we do not break up, we have a sex scene that's ...

Off-camera
0(0.0%)
Really hot
2(7.7%)
Confused and pretty funny to read
16(61.5%)
good at first but ends really badly
8(30.8%)

Ultimately

We are true love and defy my social background
11(42.3%)
We break up but stay good friends
6(23.1%)
We break up and stay angry forever
5(19.2%)
One or both of us dies tragically (again)
4(15.4%)
