I think this has been done before BUT a world where the superhero/villain scene is a kink thing. Traditionally, the hero is the top and "wins", though "gritty" pairs with villain tops are more common these days.
In addition to the usual "thing to put in holes" sex toys, super kink shops sell all sorts of macguffins to steal from each other, like remotes, self-destruct buttons, "ancient" gems and crystals, serums, and the like
There's a rise in villain/villain couples, but not a match in hero/hero ones, mostly because nobody's been able to figure out the logistics. Not to be confused with the league of evil/super team construct, which is more of a casual sex and occasional swinging arrangement.
@Balina Absolutely. When I was writing this thread, I kept going back to "Really, it would be amazing to have a big house full of friends who I could pay for their time and enjoy each other's company", and then "villain clothes that fit" and then "creative energy and commitment" and then all the cool horny stuff.
@BestGirlGrace@Balina also admittedly “wanting a complicated, comfortably antagonistic sex life but don’t have the money or time to actually put that into motion” is like one of the big reasons I draw smut, tbh
@distressedegg@BestGirlGrace And that absolutely comes through in your work. There's a certain brand of comfort that only really works if the person drawing it is giggling or sighing wistfully when they're drawing it.
