Seriously though, if they bring out a slave boy outfit my guys will all be in it. Why? Because it would be nice for guys to feel uncomfortable seeing semi-naked men running around for a change so they get a bit of a feel for what it's like for us girls sometimes to always see semi-naked women running around.

And for a perve...

Community treatment. I've played several MMOs, and I learned a long time ago, my female characters are generally treated better than my male characters. People are more likely to pass on loot, stop and explain a fight I am unfamiliar with, run content they don't need just to be helpful.

I'll even go as far as saying that I don't believe it has to be sexual in nature. Even decent folk do it, real life women sticking up for their "fellow woman" and mature, well-behaved men that have just been brought up to be more of a gentleman and treat ladies with respect. Just noticeable advantages to playing as a female.

With SWTOR, I make a point that whatever characters are not female definately use a female companion. In either case, however, covering myself from head to toe in Clone Trooper armor really seems to create a generally Gender Neutral appearance. Needing an outfit that looks decidedly female, the loungewear and slave outfits are some of the easier to obtain Adaptables that do not cover the body head to toe.

That being said, I personally don't use the slave armor at this point. My Trooper is stuck wearing his set for the set bonus, and I've got Dorne using the Clandestine Officer suit from the Cartel Market. It's just way too tempting to have the Imperial Defector companion wearing the Imperial uniform.

Which is odd, when you consider most forum posters in the MMO community assume every poster is a guy.

I think it's because you associate the character with the person. You see an attractive character, you think they're donning a relative likeness of themselves (especially if the character isn't an alien). Over the years (and MMOs) I've had people hit on my female characters. I was surprised to see someone call my SI attractive only because of the cookie-cutter templates this game gives you (if we had detailed sliders it would have been a different story).

men, strong ones or those who are still on the right level of testosterone treat weaker beings better unless they start to show signs of power hunger or simply want to be equal with them, human males hate this "=" sign.

and about this costume, well, I wouldnt ever put it on my companion simply because it reeks of promisculity and for that I have already Jaesa on my ship

Actually that's exactly why I dress Kira is the outfit. I think she has a really nice rear end and I like looking at it. After playing for a while and looking at her I decide to go see what the wife is doing.

Its revealing and there are so few options

This game could use more armor that looks cool but still has some revealing aspects

Some of the hooded light armor is pretty cool bits there's very little options there the other stuff is the opposite making my companions more covered than a nun
