Follow TV Tropes
Okay, there are a few things I wanted to ask about this. (Edit: [[https://web.archive.org/web/20100825103215/http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HedonismTropes Here's what the page used to look like.)
Ok, time for a revision.
First & Second: Replaced with a better intro.
Third: That made more sense when it was written. A long time ago, The Hedonist had a very strange trope description. I recommended that we kept it pretty much as it is with only minor clarifications and corrections, but rename it to Straw Hedonist. However, Fast Eddie then deleted a lot of the worst stuff, including the faked quote from the evil (and entirely fictional) ancient greek philosophy school hedonism. After that, we all agreed to keep the name and instead bring the trope in line with mainstream perceptions of non-ethical hedonism.
Fourth: Four tropes, therr oft them are not about sexuality per se but about containing your lust and living it out in a respectful and ethical manner. They stay. The fourth gets replaced by Safe, Sane, and Consensual.
As for only having sex tropes on the good side, I should have thought of adding Sex Is Evil, and I Am Horny to the bad side when I made it.
Also, changing the bad side from "bad" as in "evil" to "non-ethical", and adding Lovable Sex Maniac to the non-ethical side.
Sexuality should definitely not have any monopoly on pleasure, much less happiness! It would indeed be good to add some non-sexual tropes to the ethical-micro side. We already have Safe, Sane, and Consensual now, a trope that cover non-sexual activities as well as sexual. Any other suggestions?
Fifth: Oh, but you know the answer already, right? I tend to view Chaotic Good as teleology and Lawful Good as deontology, while Neutral Good is both. But as we have allready concluded, that's only one of many views on the alignments, and Lawful Good can be hedonistic too. Added it.
