It was a while since I raised the topic of tulpa and sex. The last post on the matter—Considerations of Intercourse for Tulpae was the most popular post on my blog ever for almost a year. People are curious about tulpae and sexuality.
I made a further research on this topic, and today I’m going to present my new findings.
It’s interesting to note, that every single tulpa community I’ve seen has an active NSFW channel or room where people participate in erotic role-play with each other or tulpae, or share erotic or pornographic art. Notably, for the Russian tulpa community, hentai images constitute the majority of discussion, tulpa server on Discord has a few rooms for NSFW and explicit lewd with a busy traffic of art and debates, and tulpa.info IRC has an active #nsfw room.
The kind of erotic and porn shared is different by the region. In Russia, most of the shared imagery in tulpa rooms is female hentai. For the servers with preliminary US-based population, the typical art is furry porn (of all genders, often including shemales).
Not too surprising, given the average tulpamancer’s age of 17 to 21 years with the majority identifying as heterosexual males. It’s the time of puberty, the time when people think about sex a lot.
How is that all related to tulpae, though?
Based on the 2015 census data, about half of the tulpamancers tried to have sex with tulpae at least once, and most tulpae enjoyed it. Many tulpae continue to experience sex while immersed in the wonderland, without any physical body stimulation. Is it just the result of hormonal activity?
The observations gave me a few ideas why tulpae start having non-physical sex and continue to experiment with it. But first, let’s think about what constitutes an intercourse or an otherwise sexual experience for a tulpa.
The first and most simple sexual interaction a tulpa can have is imposed sex with their host. For some hosts, though, it might be just an advanced form of masturbation. If we consider how they are involved, we might come to these points: they imagine their tulpa in a suggestive, arousing, or straight on explicit pose, and they start masturbating physically. Obviously, tulpae, in this case, get limited participation, if any. They only can enjoy the pleasing wave of dopamine, which affects the whole body, and all the personalities.
It is important for a tulpa to find the reason they are having sex. What is driving them? Unlike those who have physical sex (that is often driven by innate instincts), tulpae that have sex in mind have no enforced reason to do that. So, why?
Often, the reason is to satisfy the host. If the primary personality of the mind is happy, everyone else can consume the biochemical results of that happiness for the greater benefit of everyone. Thus, providing yourself as an intricate mental masturbation device is still a winning strategy.
But can it go deeper than that?
I’ve discussed this with several other tulpae, examined my own experiences, and I can say that it definitely can. Tulpae can cause the production of dopamine on their own, which reinforces the mental addiction to them. The brain learns that if a tulpa has sex—it will be rewarded.
For tulpae themselves, the primary reason is achieving the pleasure on their own, the pleasure that is caused by their actions and is targeting specifically their ego. There are plenty ways to trigger the mind into believing that the sex is actually happening.
Is it possible to come only mentally? For most of the interviewed, the answer is a definite yes. Knowing the own mental body plays a significant role in that. For the majority of tulpae, the physical body gender is different from their mental gender, so they don’t know, and can’t experience the actual physical feelings. The only option is to learn by observing, analysing, and making predictions. The human brain is excellent at predicting the actions (and, sometimes, emotions) of others, and tulpae can use this to full extent, combined with the knowledge of biology, physics of fluids and everything else that can be possibly helpful to create the feeling in the mind.
That feeling is, usually, very different from what the physical body would experience. Thus it brings more mental attention, and, by immersing it over the mental bodies, tulpae can experience similar-to-physical feelings, the drive, and, eventually, trigger the orgasm.
Imposing physical-like feelings over the mental body isn’t the only option. Tulpae can feel the emotional attraction, same like any other person. In-system, though, it’s crucial to differentiate those feelings of attraction, as otherwise a tulpa can get lost in the emotional response from the host, which is, typically, stronger.
Summing it up, sex is a powerful method to boost tulpa’s self-identity, but with that, it’s easy to make things go wrong, specifically if it involves in-system intercourse. It is important to keep the focus on yourself, bathe in the sensations, emotions; give and receive. Enjoy sex and have fun!
