In the interview with Ashe, you mentioned the possibility that you could have romances with Inquisition characters and turn down sex with them. I know a bunch of asexual fans were pretty hopeful about that possibility (myself included). Is there any way you can clarify that statement without spoiling anything? What exactly does it mean to continue a romance but turn down the LI when it comes to sex? Will the romance scenes be the same otherwise? Thanks!
Not all the DAI romance arcs culminate in a “sex scene”, and I can recall at least one where the conversation which would otherwise lead into such a scene need not (at the player’s discretion) and the romance arc continues on. I wouldn’t call it a feature, per se, as it’s not consistently applied, and is just something I encouraged the writers to try.
I’m not sure if that counts as asexual representation, but if it amounts to the same thing then that’s great. It’s something you’ll probably see us doing more of in the future—not specifically for asexual fans, but because I’ve always been of the opinion that romance arcs need not always revolve around sex. It’s not the be-all and end-all of what romance is truly about.
