A Wholesome Roleplay: Is it worth it?

So something that has been on my mind ever since I got into the ERP scene...

Nearly most roleplayers (generally) want to be dominated, be abused (not actually), roughed up, or anything like that in an ERP. Everyone has their own preferences and fantasies and I respect that.

However, it makes me feel like I’m in a very small minority...
I want to create a wholesome, heartwarming story with some ERP elements. Not just straight to the bit or have it be forced, but built up upon so there’s actual feeling. Personally, I’m not into the BDSM or dark themes because honestly, if I were doing the deed, I would to be more affectionate and gentle than rough and demanding. ^^’

Does anyone else feel this way? At all?

I can handle the darker themes fine, they can be enjoyable, but at the same time, something...tamer, lighter and just, well....nicer, has some appeal to it as well.

It depends on the mood. And honestly, you can have a dark as shit RP but have a lighter, more gently affectionate relationship within it.

Yeah, something like that.

I dunno, I guess when I think of intimacy, my mind says “Most bonding step of a relationship” instead of “Need sexual and fantasy relief now.”.

I love writing conflict and drama, and many of my stories do take dark turns, but I think underlying most of them is hope. One of my stories that starts off darkest actually ends with marriage and babies. One of mine that starts off lighter, almost slice of life, may end up being the darkest yet. I have discovered that I struggle to write well-adjusted characters, but absolutely adore writing characters who find healing in their narratives.

I'm sure you'll find someone who likes the same sorts of stories as you, just takes a bit of looking.

I tend to flip flop. But I've had a few wholesome RPs here and there.
This is probably why I like Shounen story tropes honestly. They have a decent balance between light and dark moments but always have a more hopeful outlook.

I love both. And even my darkest stories need some fun or light or tender, what's the point otherwise? I can Watch Chernobyl.

I don’t see why a more lighter rp would struggle. I have written romantic comedies, adventures, all kinds of even non-sexual stuff.

I'd love to do some totally nonsexual but still mature themed roleplays with lots of death, violence and dark psychological elements, or serious topics like depression and mental illness.

I have encountered roleplayers and interests of all stripes. What you've described is quite common.

Even in my erotic role plays I like story line and plot so a "wholesome" one can be interesting and fun. Sometimes it can be more fun to be honest. You just need a good theme and characters to explore. And of course good writing to keep things moving as you can't just throw a sex scene in when things slow down!
