I have a few couple female characters. I have never been exposed to direct
proposals like you have been, mostly it has been bragging, stalking,
insisting on helping me in fights and such. Maybe it has something to do
with the type of server? I play strictly on PVE-RP servers.
Once, while I was a female gnome, a male gnome came by and started
bragging and bragging about his armour, and how much money he had. My
replies where of the "Good for you" and "Why are you telling me this?"
type. But he went on. Finally I said "Why do you think I am interested in
hearing about this?". Then he left. I found that extremely funny.
I have only experienced this interest when playing a human or a gnomisk
female. Never with dwarves, undead, trolls and tauren.
And never outside the beginner's areas.
As for Age of Conan - female NPC's are big-breasted and suggestive. Female
players have more regular anatomy. And so far the players have been much
more mature. So you may very well be right.
