There is nothing like a good Sims session to take your mind off the real world—and Sims 4 sex mods can take things a step further.
Most video games serve as an escape from life’s pressures, but none serve that purpose quite as flawlessly as the Sims franchise. These simulation games literally let people live another life. Instead of living among zombies or medieval warriors, however, you can play as a regular person. Your Sims grow up, get jobs, purchase homes, and live completely relatable lives—for the most part.
The base version of The Sims 4 is lacking, leaving players consistently yearning for more hairstyles, more color options, more aspirations, and more careers. Perhaps most importantly: more romantic options. This is a life simulation game, after all. Life tends to involve plenty of romance, heartbreak, and sex. Lots of sex.
While the base version of The Sims 4 does allow Sims to “WooHoo,” the game’s subdued version of getting it on, the deed is always done in a double bed and beneath the covers. They presumably never deviate from missionary, either. Snore.
That’s where mods come in. Read on for some of the best sex mods for The Sims 4, how they’ll change your game, and where you can find them.
The best sex mods for The Sims 4
For players looking to spice up their Sim’s next romantic pursuit, there are a few mods that beef up every aspect of sexual—or merely romantic—gameplay. Whether you’re looking to better mimic the world’s current dating trends, live life with more risk, or enjoy your Sim’s next sexual foray in far greater detail, one of these mods is sure to do the trick.
1) The best Sims 4 sex mod overall: Wicked Whims
“Wicked Whims” has well earned its spot at the top of this list, and it’s a powerhouse when it comes to broadening the overall experience in The Sims 4. While this mod does lean heavily on NSFW content, it offers plenty of non-sexual, but inarguably relatable, options.
With the base “Wicked Whims” mod installed, players gain the ability to expand their choice of hookup location, meaning the next saucy interaction can occur on a couch, countertop, or right in the middle of the living room floor.
On top of broadening your sexual horizons, “Wicked Whims” adds the ability to have orgies, use strap-ons, contract and spread disease, and even experience periods every month. More than 7,000 diverse animations can be selected and downloaded based on your sexual preferences, ranging from vanilla missionary and cowgirl positions to BDSM, voyeurism, and a range of specialized kinks.
That’s not all this Sims 4 sex mod offers. There are also desires and attractiveness levels, plus birth control, new flavors of jealousy, and a range of new reactions. This mod is like an expansion pack all on its own.
2) The best Sims 4 sex mod for pregnancy: Risky WooHoo
The base version of The Sims 4 doesn’t allow much flexibility when it comes to relationships. Only adult Sims can have intercourse, and it’s always separated into “WooHoo” or “Try for Baby.” This means that you will never have an unexpected pregnancy, fertility issues, or an accidental teenage mother.
If you’re looking to spice up your Sims’ sex lives without delving into the erotic wormhole that is “Wicked Whims,” “Risky WooHoo” from modder PolarBearSims introduces a little more danger into the equation.
This Sims 4 sex mod adds risky sex, something almost all humans are familiar with, and all the complications that come along with it. The mod allows for teenage pregnancy, teenage-adult relationships, and different fertility levels for different Sims.
3) The best Sims 4 career sex mod: Hoe it Up
One of the major issues with The Sims 4 is its bare choices when it comes to career options. Not only does modder Sacrificial’s “Hoe It Up” offer the option to add sex work to your Sims resume, but it introduces new skillsets that your Sim can build upon throughout their life.
“Hoe It Up” offers a few new avenues to monetary stability. Sims can get paid to take another Sim to bed, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. This mod also introduces the ability to garner income from stripping. Players who purchased The Sims 4: Get To Work expansion pack and installed “Wicked Whims” can even open and operate their own strip club.
4) The best Sims 4 sex mod for dating: Dating App
Tinder and other dating apps have become a staple in American culture. Thanks to modder LittleMsSam, you can bring a little bit of that real-world drama to your next game of The Sims.
The “SimDa” dating app allows your single Sims to explore their options before they find that special someone. Looking to meet someone new? Set up a blind date and see who shows up. More interested in a no-strings-attached hookup? No worries, one night stands are easy to schedule with this handy mod. You can carefully craft the mechanics around this mod, adjusting pregnancy risk, age ranges available for dates, and so much more.
5) The best Sims 4 sex mod for romance: Passionate Romance
Looking for an upgrade to The Sims 4‘s romantic interactions without adding in the erotic elements? There are a few tamer mods that deliver additional romantic options without showing full nudity or altering the way WooHoo works. Take the “Passionate Romance” mod, which side-steps the explicit action in favor of more simple pleasures.
With “Passionate Romance” installed, your game offers new romantic interactions and throws an extra dash of intrigue into your Sim’s next date night. The addition of romantic selfies—an absolute staple of life in 2021—adds to the realism, and allows players to decorate their homes with more than 20 separate poses. It also adds in some new interactions, including callbacks to previous Sims releases like “goose” and “make out.”
