Knowledge : Erotic

Knowledge: Erotic This is a Knowledge skill, available as a class skill to anybody who has access to any other Knowledge skill, and a cross-class skill for anybody else. It indicates book learning (often accompanied with real-life research™) in sexual techniques and the ability to pleasure oneself and others. It also includes knowledge of the mating habits of various creatures, sexual taboos, fertility rites, contraceptives, proper care of the body before and during pregnancy, and sex-related effects and items, magical or otherwise. If a character has 5 or more ranks in Knowledge: Erotic, then they get a +2 synergy bonus with Performance: Sexual. This bonus increases by +2 for every 5 ranks of Knowledge: Erotic that the character has (+4 at 10 ranks, +6 at 15, and so forth). If a person has both Knowledge: Erotic and Perform: Sexual, then the two skills may be rolled together for any check involving sexual performance and the better of the two used. This is only possible if both skills are known, rather than just one.

Perform: Sexual:This demonstrates training in advanced lovemaking skills, and is available as a class skill to any character with the Perform skill, or a cross-class skill to all other characters. It may be used in lieu of a straight attribute roll on any sexual performance rolls, and as a replacement for Concentration checks to stave off sexual fatigue. If a character has 5 or more ranks in Performance: Sexual, then they get a +2 synergy bonus with Knowledge: Erotic, and get an additional +2 synergy bonus for every additional 5 points in Performance: Sexual. If a person has both Knowledge: Erotic and Perform: Sexual, then the two skills may be rolled together and the better of the two used on any roll involving sexual performance. This is only possible if both skills are known, rather than just one.
