It's getting late in the term, and I'd like some help with a homework assignment. No, I don't want you to do it for me: everything that one Zi Ri will do on it, I will do on it.
But I am supposed to ask an assortment of creative and clever people certain questions, and perform various analyses of the results.
How many lovers should a decent and civilized person have at any one time
none, except for spouse(s)
more than can be easily counted or remembered
What species and gender should your lovers be?
Your own species, and not your own gender (unless you're Zi Ri)
Your species, of whatever gender seems best at the time
Any civilized species, not your own gender
Any civilized species, whatever gender
Your own species and Zi Ri
Any prime species, not your own gender
Any prime species, any gender
Any sentient species, even monsters
Any living species
Anything that will say yes (or doesn't get away fast enough): animals, vegetables, elementals, gods, unnameable things from beyond the World Tree...
And how much of that have you actually done?
How important is the possibility of bearing children to your choice of lovers
Anti-important: I don't want children and I don't want to waste cley on contraceptive spells
Neutral: I don't worry about the topic at all.
Good: I'd like to have children some day, preferably with my lover
Crucial: I want children as soon as possible!
Why (or, what's the "other")?
