It's...complicated. I'll try to summarize without going into unneeded details. Basically HSDD is the trigger point for my current complex. I never have had any comprehension or desire when it comes to copulation or the related activities and such that go along with it. Things happen, people make assumptions, trauma occurs, and now I pretty much have a burning hatred and revulsion for the act so deeply rooted that, to be honest (in a non-dramatic fashion, I promise); if given the choice between engaging in the act or committing suicide I would very likely accept the second option with little hesitation. *shrugs* It's more than just the HSDD but since it all originated from that I simply point to that as the cause and move on with life. XD
That aside, I agree on the whole Act 1 thing. It seemed to take way too long to get through however the story pacing really smooths out in the 2nd and 3rd acts. I think they gave each girl a different writer, which would explain why it felt more smoothly flowing rather than trying to cram every introduction within the first act possible and still give the player time to 'pick a route'.
