-
*Princess Jillian Zamussels and Lady [[Wanda Firebaugh]]: The two have shared a long and kinky relationship, bonding over torture sessions with obvious erotic overtones. It is however, unknown if they have actually slept together.

-
*Archons and [[Charlie]]: No evidence for this, but the Archons seduce clients all the time, and it wouldn't be surprising if Charlie personally enjoyed this benefit to having them.

-
*Archons and [[Parson Gotti]]: Parson has had a strong interest in them. However, his shyness, as well as his discomfort over Erfworld social norms, has prevented it from happening thus far.
+
*Archons and [[Parson Gotti]]
-
*[[Queen Bea]] and [[Don King]]: The two of them were clearly good friends, and Bea's death affected Don greatly to the extent that he has adopted the same snobby behavior so many Royals show. However, Don King has specifically ''not'' been described as the type to travel, so it is unlikely they have so much as met in person.

*Viscount [[Caesar Borgata]] and [[Bunny]]: Unconfirmed, but the two of them do share a secret relationship, and it is said that Caeser gets chances to lay eyes on her in private from time to time.

*[[Sizemore Rockwell]] and [[Maggie]]: Unlikely, but it was said that the caster link they formed was enjoyable.

*[[Ace]] and [[Cubbins]]: There is absolutely no evidence for this whatsoever, but Cubbins ''has'' been mentioned to be one of the only two friends Ace ever had on the Jetstone side.

*King [[Slately]] and [[Holly Shortcake]]: Unconfirmed, but Slately has described the possibility of meeting her in the afterlife as being the chance to "know love again".

*Dame Olive Branch and Lady Wanda Firebaugh: Unlikely, since both characters have hated each other from the very beginning. [[Delphie Temple]] ''did'' mention that there was [[Date-a-mancy]] [[Fate]]d between them, though that could just as easily refer to a strong adversarial relationship.

*Dame Olive Branch and King Loj [[Banhammer]]: Unconfirmed, but likely, to the extent that Jack himself speculated on it.

Proposed Canon

On Erfworld, things which seem to have no practical function can perform a symbolic function. For example, Gobwin Knob has a "bank", which is simply an empty building. By occasionally stepping inside this "bank", Parson can "inspect" the "bank", which makes Gobwin Knob's economy more productive.

Since there is no pregnancy and there are no babies in Erfworld, heirs are popped, Nookie also seems to have no practical bearing on poppingWoT-4047518. However, it may serve an important symbolic function. According to Parson's discussion with Maggie, it would seem that the technical act and, erm, "Tools" involved are much the same.

Speculation

While Nookie serves no biological functions, it may be considered to serve social functions like with bonobos. It has also been speculated that it can influence the traits of a popped unit when an heir or noble unit is involved. Namely, Jillian and Vinny's involvement is speculated to have a bearing on the personality/temperament of the FAQ Heir currently in production.

Nookie could be a form of Natural Date-a-mancy. In addition to the aformentioned possible influence on heirs, the nature of the emotions involved with such an act could both build and destroy relationships, not only between individual units, but also sides. A study of who is (or is not) engaging in Nookie with whom and why may give a breakdown of relationships between units and how to use that against the units in question.

Analysis

There certainly appear to be real emotional attachments associated with these pairings, as evidenced by the complexities of the relationships between Wanda, Jillian, Ansom, and Vinny. However, it is unclear how deeply these emotional bonds run, and it may depend on the individual. That said, there have been multiple cases in which "love" and nookie coincide, and those conflicting emotions, particularly when combined with the ability of ruler, warlord and caster units to exercise freewill, may have changed the outcomes of engagements (Wanda not croaking Jillian at the Tower of Efdup, or Jillian's capturing Ansom at the Expository Bridge).
