This. Doing what this BioWare stooge suggests is a sure recipe for bad writing. Simply write what is appropriate for your setting and characters.

What exactly makes BioWare in expert in this field? Gay elf sex triggered, as the other poster mentioned, by small talk? Employees of the company continually spout off on this topic, sounding like high schoolers given an improptu essay assignment. Open letter to BioWare: Get over yourselves.
