Here Are All the Gender and Sexuality Options in ‘The Sims 4’

Something that always bothered me about The Sims was the fact that your Sims could hypothetically end up with anyone. And as a queer person, that sort of freedom was liberating to an extent—but it became uncomfortable when I’d create a character that I’d want to be more ace-leaning, only to return to my desk and find them hooking up with Mortimer Goth. Yeesh.

Therefore, it’s exciting that Maxis is expanding its Create A Sim options to include sexual preferences. It’s a fairly simple feature, sure, allowing only for male and female preferences, although I think it’s interesting that they also allow players to differentiate between sexual vs. romantic inclinations. Ultimately, this culminates in a variety of options for players to experiment with.
