The following mods are not compatible with the latest version of Sexbound.


As a warning to future Sexbound mod creators, please do not entirely overwrite any of the core *.lua files provided by Sexbound in your mods. If you need help about how to make a plugin to change a core functionality, then there is a safe way to patch single functions in Sexbound's core *.lua scripts via your own custom plugin; you can direct message me about how to do so. Sexbound is constantly undergoing restructuring of the core scripts to make it more flexible and optimized, so I need understanding and alignment from the modders to abide by the aforementioned rule for the sake of creating a good experience for all players.


If you're a creator and you want to get your mod off this list, direct message me and I will help you make changes so your mod can be compatible.

Frequently Asked Questions - FAQ


Please read the below frequently asked questions before asking your question in our support forum.



1. How can I protect myself and / or my family members from experiencing the content of this mod?

Don't install it. All end-users of this software must be at least 18 years old to view, download, and / or install this software. 


2. Will Sexbound be released to Steam Workshop?

No. The mod files can only be accessed and downloaded from this website.

3. Does this mod support my character's race?

All major playable vanilla races and many custom races are supported. You must download a separate support mod for your custom race. If you cannot find a support mod for your character's race, then make a request for the Community to create a support mod.


4. How do I have sex with an NPC?

There are two main methods to have sex with an NPC, and both methods will require you to download additional mod.


Method #1 - Shoot an NPC with Aphrodite's Bow (i) which is a SxB compatible bow that is a commonly used by many players. Its primary attack transforms an NPC into a sex node object, whereas the secondary attack causes an NPC to max its arousal instantly. You must download and install the Aphrodite's Bow mod, then you'll need to complete the quest line to obtain the bow.


Method #2 - Use a SxB Loungeable Addon object to extend the functionality of a loungeable bed to enable having sex. You must use another compatible mod to influence an NPC to enter a sex-enabled bed, such as Aphrodite's Bow, Naturally Horny, or Statue of Dibella.


5. What is the SxB Loungeable Add-on object used for?

This is used to upgrade specific furniture objects to be sex-enabled. It's mostly used to enable beds and other loungeables for Sexbound while still enables players and NPCs to use the bed like normal for sleeping. When you use a loungeable add-on on a supported furniture object, then "pose balls" will appear over the bed. This method is very much inspired by pose balls from Second Life. So, you as the player should interact with the pose balls to enter the bed to have sex. Otherwise, you interact directly with the bed to sleep in it only. NPCs interact directly with the invisible nearby sex nodes automatically.


6. Where can I obtain a SxB Loungeable Add-on object?

One of the SxB Loungeable Addon items can be purchased from Infinity Express (Outpost). Or, they can be found as reward in almost any chest or storage container that rewards treasure.


7. What is the difference between the different tiers of Loungeable Add-on objects?

The different tiered add-ons differ in how many entities they allow to use a sex-enabled object at the same time. Currently, T3 or up to 4 entities is not supported.


Tier 1 (T1)

=> Allows up to 2 entities.


Tier 2 (T2)

=> Allows up to 3 entities.


8. How do I place the SxB Loungeable Add-on onto a loungeable furniture object?

You can place the SxB Loungeable Add-on by horizontally centering it over a loungeable object, then place it when the highlight around the placement image turns blue. If it doesn't turn blue at all, then the furniture object has not been made to be compatible. If you have experience placing add-ons on a fully upgraded anvil, then you can expect the process to be very similar.


9. How long will an NPC stay transformed as a sex node object?

By default, an entity will stay transformed as a sex node object for up to five minutes, but it depends on which mod is used to transform the entity. If the NPC has been shot by Aphrodite's Bow then it should be up to five minutes.


10. How can I return an NPC to normal when it is transformed into a sex node object?

You can use you matter manipulator to smash the entity, or you can attack the transformed NPCs feet, then it'll transform back into its normal state. Furthermore, tenants will transform back into their normal state upon being called home. Note: This method will not work in protected areas.

11. Why can't I have sex with a certain NPC?

You can have sex with vast majority of vanilla NPCs, but some of the NPCs, such as story NPCs, are not compatible by default. It's only a matter of time until they are made to be compatible as it takes a considerable amount of time to create the required custom sprites. It is no longer a problem to have sex with crew members or entities located within protected instances.


Furthermore, certain third-party mods might cause some NPC types to not function such as villagers. For example, Space Police and Killable NPCs are two mods that cause the Villager type NPCs to no longer function with Sexbound API.  It's possible to continue using some third-party mods that cause trouble for Sexbound API, but you must install additional patch mods to provide a fix for specific NPC types. These patch mods have been configured to be the last mods loaded which lessens the likelihood that their additions will be overwritten by other mods:


A) Villager


12. Can I have sex with another player?

Yes, you can have sex with another player. Currently, the only method to have sex with another player is to lounge together in a sex-enabled furniture object.


13. How long must I wait for my character to try to give birth after choosing to give birth later?

In the case that the pregnancy timing mechanism is world time, then the player character will try to give birth again after 1 day has elapsed. Otherwise, in the case that the pregnancy timing mechanism is OS (real-life) time then the player character will try to give birth again after 1 hour in real-life has elapsed.


14. How do I change the actors to use their default head artwork during the animation?

In the sexbound.config file - under actor > defaultArtwork > head - change the value to be :




15. Where is the sexbound.config file located?

The sexbound.config file is located in the root folder of this mod, but you must download and use the UNPAK version.


16. How do I edit the sexbound.config file?

Open the file using notepad or another ASCII text editor, then make your changes and save normally.


17. Why isn't an actor displaying pregnancy?

By default, the pregnancy fetish is disabled. You must manually enable the pregnancy fetish setting Pregnant plugin's config option "enablePregnancyFetish" to be 'true'.


Note: The pregnancy config file is located here: /sxb_plugin.pregnant.config


18. Why isn't my character displaying a pregnant belly when I'm not having a sex interaction?

Pregnancy doesn't show up outside of having sex because it's a modding limitation that we cannot easily overcome in Starbound.


19. How do I change the pregnancy and birthing to be based on world (in-game) time rather than real-life (OS) time?

You must edit the sxb_plugin.pregant.config file, and you have to change the 'useOSTimeForPregnancies' to be equal false.


20. How can I visit the Sexbound Sandbox dungeon?

You can use the command /sexboundsandbox to teleport there.


21. What happened to the Sexbound website?

It has been down since Loverslab has provided a category for Starbound mods. I'm not doing extra work to duplicate every mod from this website to mine. No worries about the domain name, as I will prevent domain squatters from taking it.


22. Where can I download the artwork for the PoV (Point of View) Sex UI module?

You should download this mod which adds much of the artwork:







* ? You must be at least 18 years old to view, download, or install this mod.
