Sex is??? Or are they brainwashed??

In the book Kill Team...

***SPOILER ALERT!!!***





























There's a part where the team is on the tau ship, the female of the team is showering in the Tau shower. She screams and the all-male team comes in. She's 100% nude, covering her breasts. They look all around the room for the source of what made her scream, find it, and leave. It was if they had not even seen her nude!! Do the Lord-Commanders put some kind of thing in the drink that makes all guardsmen/women not get 'excited' at all??? I mean, of course many Humans know what it is... There're countless billions, as said... But why were these guardsmen acting this way? In the book, which is in first-person, Kage doesn't even say anything about her body... Are guardsmen brainwashed into not getting turned on at all?? :s

May I assume that you read "The 13th Legion?"

If you haven't it states that they have seen eachother nude due to mandatory group showers. To them it's just another day in the life.....Though, I would stare.....Then again why would you have sex when your Colonel is in the same room as you. Not to mention all the other members :P.

Well, in a combat situation, most highly trained troops are basically brainwashed. I know that if I was Special forces conducting a mission and I walked into a room with a human girl showering, I'd probably raise an eyebrow at most. You just don't have time. Plus she was an Alien which makes her entirely unappealing to imperial troops.

Um actually it was Sharpshooter that he's talking about, not a Tau. Secondly, there probably are anti-homone things in the guard food/drink. Can't have those females coming down and out with pregnancy and having to be abandoned on some lonely hive world with no way to help them survive...

I disagree. In the Cain series, Cain comments about having to deal with inter-regiment relationships and pregnancies. If there is a baby, then they are probably left with the regiment's followers.

Oops my mistake. If it was a non combat situation then I'd imagine a slightly bemused look on the faces of the troops. They are soliders after all.

Well, we aren't talkin about babies themselves, we're talking about the motions before.

The stock answer always works:

It depends on the regiment.

Seriously, the only common thread between Imperial Guard regiments is that they are all (basically) human, and they are all tasked with killing the enemy. Some regiments are going to be indoctrinated to the point of complete celibacy, while others are going to pursue inter-regimental relationships more in line with a Slaaneshi cult. One might drug its soldiers to suppress their sexual urges, while another might actually encourage them as a means of relieving tension after a battle. There is just too much variation.
