>>14734100 Beta males are afraid of women, it might look as if they were homosexual to others but in reality they aren't (although some eventually do become gay, due to their inability to leave the beta state or because of social pressure)
They don't, writers do it because writers before them have done it so they do it too. I doubt nips like all like/enjoy every cliche or portrayal but it's like the rules and building blocks of the story, you just accept it and enjoy it being made fun of from time to time.
>>14734809 >they'd have way more difficulty projecting/ rooting for the protag if he agreed to sexual advances If they were that resentful, they wouldn't be entertaining harem fantasy to begin with. Terrible choice if they want something to accurately mirror their life and circumstances.
>>14734030 This. Not wanting to fuck desperate sluts who might not even be your type is not being gay.
Also being an aggressive woman isn't seen as properly feminine in Japan. It'd be gayer to let a girl dominate you.
>>14734809 >Also LNs are not for porn, so that's why. And accepting a girl means the story is pretty much over at that point. Characters fucking doesn't have to be porn. That is, they don't have to show them fucking. Harems are a little different if the harem is about MC having to choose a girl, instead of the girls all being okay with sharing him, but harems shouldn't focus entirely on the harem situation anyway. That's what makes shitty harem series shitty.
>go play VNs VNs get made into ecchi harem and whatnot shows too.
>>14733937 Not everyone is a desperate to fuck 13 year old who would take anything they could get.
>>14735193 >Not everyone is a desperate I'd say they are if they had indulge in the fantasy of a number of girls all over one guy. Can see how seeing advances rejected can make you feel dignified than you really are though.
>>14735247 What are you quoting? Neither of those words are in my post or even in the thread.
>>14735228 Possibly, but then they'd watch porn, read VNs, or indulge in less limited OVA type ecchi series like Koharu Biyori or KissxSis.
I guess harems are supposed to be more about shipping and drama than fantasies of a bunch of women all over a guy. But like I said, harem situations should be secondary, if not tertiary, to a series plotline.
Honestly, a bunch of girls rubbing their tits all over a guy all the time isn't even really a harem. It's just a bunch of girls sexually harassing some guy. The only drama there is when they guy will finally cave in and let them give him the P.
>>14735281 I should also say that it's not that weird for a bunch of girls to all like one guy. Girls tend to only like a few types of guys and ignore all the rest. It's why when you get harem shows for girls, the guys all look similar, but in harem shows for guys, you get a variety of women.
>>14733937 Probably because it is the easiest way to make lewd events keep happening one after another. If the MC actually accepts the advances and fucks the girl then what? Anything less than sex would pale in comparison and they can't even show the sex scenes because it is not hentai. It also has a lot of predecessors so it isn't hard to find examples for scenarios to rip off of.
It is what sells. You want your LN to sell, right? Copy what currently works instead of risking failure trying something new.
