I consulted several Baldur’s Gate 3 players about their number-one picks. As a Gale romancer myself, I wanted to be sure that ranking my Wizard boy toy at the top wasn’t just a matter of bias toward a character whom I kissed a lot. If Gale only had the one sex scene in which he materializes a bed in the middle of a forest for you to have at it, he wouldn’t rank very high at all. But a later scene, which looks like it ate up a majority of Baldur’s Gate 3’s cinematic budget, propels Gale of Waterdeep to the very top of the fantasy sex hierarchy.
Gale, believing his days to be numbered because of the magical bomb in his chest, wants to create the “perfect” night for you. He creates a magical replica of his Waterdeep study, where you sit together on the balcony overlooking the ocean. But he wants to bond with you in the way gods do, with your souls intertwined and not retrained by the limits of earthly forms. So this cheeky fucker astral projects you both into a space-like void where your spirits entangle while he expands and multiplies his own body to instigate a floating, spiritual foursome as your bodies spin through the void. It is so extra, it is so tinged with melancholy, but goddamn, it is one of the most memorable scenes in a game already full of them.
Sex is a big part of Baldur’s Gate 3, and every sex scene has its own layers and nuances that tie back into each relationship. Not everyone is a wizard who has experience fucking a god, nor does everyone have to be in order to both give you a good time and expand upon your tender relationship. But as a climactic moment that builds upon the (potentially) tragic romance, the magical Dungeons & Dragons setting, and is just a visual splendor to behold, Gale comes out on top, multiple times, all at once.
