I agree completely with this.  My system is player-to-player only, and
requires both people to type 'consent <partner>'.  I have coded some
pretty horrific combat (people can get disembowelled, then stagger off
knowing its only so long before they either bleed to death, or their
entrails pour out...with a selection of options like this, combat is
not for the faint of heart), however there are some things I just would
never code.  Interestingly my system is also male-to-female only.

I agree that skills should not be 'transferred'...however there is no
reason why you couldn't bring up your son/daughter to follow in your
footsteps, thus they would be quite likely to have some of your skills.
