i was just wondering, the emperors children turned to chaos under the demon god slannesh, who is the god of pleasure. I was wondering, what kind of pleasure is he the god of? Like torturing kind, or killing, or is it about sex?
Is that why they have those demonettes with big boobs?
So what, do these emperors children space marines have sex with eachother or something?
I always thought it was pretty much all of the above, just self satifaction ya know.
As for sex with each other.... I don't think I want to know...
"Love it or shove it."
Hey the warp can turn ya a bit wierd. So I'd have to imagine that it would range from sex to killing; and a few things inbetween that alot of us wouldnt want to know about. I mean how can you even try to question something like that, they dress in pink for god sakes. PINK, I dont want to know what pleasures them.

Slaansh followers goal is to ascend to a state in which every emotion or feeling is pleasurable.
"They shall all taste OBLIVION!,.....which tastes like Red Bull, which is disgusting."
Slaanesh is the Chaos God of Lust, Excess, Pleasure, Perfection and Hedonism, not only from the pleasure(if any) you get from killing or torturing someone but from anything that please you. Pleasure is the core of experience that makes up the reality of Slaanesh. So pleasure can come from various sources, from example a particulary attractive painting or the pleasure you feel by killing your enemy. Or the pleasure can be sensual, like eating your favourite food or deranged and debased thoughts of unspeakable acts. But most related to Slaanesh is the malevolent joys and cruelties. Slaanesh is a 'fusion' of all the diverse drives and emotions that surround the expirience and concept of Pleasure such as joy, love, and greed. Slaanesh in one way is more dangerous than his brothers cause his demands seem more attractive and easy to comply with.

MEAT IS MURDER
If I remember correctly, the Emperor's Children were seduced by their martial pride. They had an elitist view that they were the best and took a little too much pleasure and delight in proving it. I suspect that once that particular door was opened, the other vices, perversions, malpractices, etc, came naturally and their elitism turned to torturing captives for longer, devising newer and crueler ways to do things, etc. The colours they use are part of the shock value, along with the sonic imagery, the jewels, the unnatural beauty of the daemons, etc. I think such basic and creative concepts as sex are way down in their pecking order. Why do normal things when you can do anything?

As for the Emperor's children, i don't believe they have sex with each other - they're pretty much above that, as it's a base form of pleasure - they look for higher forms, as Nagato spoke of. The Emperor's children were also aiming for the perfect legion(genetically modified, etc), so turning to Slaanesh was a natural thing for them as it could help them achieve their goal.
There's stacks more information in the Liber Chaotica book on them, so buy that if you're REALLY interested.

The only difference between tattooed people and non-tattooed people is that tattooed people are awesome and can kick your ass.
"War does not determine who is right - only who is left."
i see.....so when the slannesh marines quote "he is our god, he is the lord of the most unspeakable pleasures."
Doesnt that sound a bit corny?
what i dont understand is why their demon princes and demons have *boobs*?
For the same reason they're pink, and Slanessh has tentacles and lobster claws and such. Because that's how the designers imagined it.
And what the hell does it matter, anyways? Woo, the little metal demons have little metal boobs. Does it really matter why?
