Making Wicked Whims a Little Less … Wicked

A step-by-step guide on customizing your Wicked Whims settings so that the mod isn’t so intrusive.

BEFORE YOU READ: This article contains adult content that is intended for readers 18+. Some of the links here also lead to adult websites that are inappropriate for children. Please do not proceed if you are a minor.

Note for Beginners: If you’re new to installing custom content, check out this step-by-step guide.

You may have heard of the mod, Wicked Whims, that offers animated sex interactions for the Sims 4. At first glance, it may seem like too much. Especially if you’ve heard stories of orgies popping off at restaurants or parents doing obscene and questionable things in front of their children, but the mod has come a long way since its release and offers so much more than just sex. Things like detailed menstrual and fertility cycles, personality archetypes and a full fledged attractiveness system like back in the good ole Sims 2 days, make this mod a must have for me.

If you’re not interested in all of the sex and nudity stuff, but would like to take advantage of the other features mentioned above, there is a way to turn that portion of the mod off, almost completely. It’ll still exist but only at your direction. This way you won’t have to worry about Father Winter getting it on with one or two of your sims at Winterfest, I mean, unless that’s what you want.

If you’re in a rush and don’t have time for the tutorial, scroll down to the bottom of this page where you can download my settings which are already done for you.

Alternatively, if you have no interest in ever using the sex or nudity stuff that comes along with this mod, Turbodriver, the creator of Wicked Whims, has released a PG-13 version of the mod called Wonderful Whims.

Not sure which mod, Wicked Whims or Wonderful Whims is right for you? Check out this short article which highlights the main differences between the mods so that you can make the best decision for your game.

Downloading the Mod:

So to get started, you need to download and install the mod. You can find it on the official Wicked Whims site here.

*Note: The mod is the only thing you need to download. No animations are necessary unless you want them. The animations are what allows the possibility for detailed sex to happen in your game but since this post is about how to tone things down, we aren’t going to go over that.

For everyone else, unzip and place the “WickedWhimsMod” folder in your Mods folder making sure it is no more than one folder deep. Now we’re ready to start the game.

Customizing the Settings:

To make changes to the Wicked Whims Settings, you need to be in live mode, so choose any random family in the save you’re playing and load up their household.

*Note: Settings have to be reconfigured for every save so it’s important to choose the save you’re playing. Don’t worry though, once we’re done, I’ll show you how to export them so that you can easily import them for future saves.

Once you’re there, click on any available sim or spot on the ground and click the “Wicked…” option.

There are two main settings that we need to focus on, “Nudity” and “Sex”. We’ll start with Nudity. Click on “Nudity Settings”.

Click to uncheck “Naturism and Exhibitionism Switch”. This will disable sims from gaining the exhibitionism skill which is all about nudity.

Next click on “Occurrence Settings”. This is where we will turn autonomy off.

Next click to place a check mark next to “Disable Nudity Occurrences”. This disables all nudity autonomy so sims won’t randomly strip down for no reason.

Click the “x” to go back to the main Nudity Settings Screen and click “Other Settings”. Uncheck “Toilet Undressing Switch” to prevent them from removing their pants or entire outfit (depending on what they’re wearing) when they use the bathroom and “Breast Feeding Undressing Switch” to prevent female sims from removing their top + bra when breastfeeding.

Go back to the main Nudity Settings Screen again and click “Special Settings”. Uncheck “Window Peeping Switch” to prevent a special NPC sim from being generated for the sole purpose of peeping in your sims’ window. I just don’t like this so I disable it.

Now we’re all done with the Nudity Settings! Click the “x” until you get back to the main Wicked Whims Settings Screen and click “Sex Settings”. This one is fairly simple and much quicker than the nudity stuff.

Click to uncheck “Autonomy Switch” to prevent sims from autonomously engaging in sexual acts.

And that’s it!

Exporting/Importing Your Settings:

To export your settings, in the main Wicked Whims Settings screen, click “Settings Control” then “Export Current Settings”. A dialog box will pop open and allow you to name your settings. To import your settings (for other saves) follow the same steps above and click “Import Settings” and select the settings you would like to import and restart the game for the changes to take effect.

I also recommend downloading a few additional mods that helps censor a few things that you may not want to see:

Additional Notes:

Following these steps will allow you to disable autonomy for both nudity and sexual occurrences in your game but it won’t prevent other additions made to the game from showing up.

Examples include:

  • Watch porn option on the computer
  • Order sex items option on the computer (condoms/birth control/menstrual items)
  • Have sex option included as a date goal (not required to actually get a medal)
  • Have sex with … as whim
  • Phone option to terminate pregnancy

If seeing any of these things in your game bothers you, I would strongly caution against downloading this mod.

Download my Settings

These settings have all sex and nudity autonomy disabled as well as:

  • Sweating (it tends to get stuck, requiring a cheat to remove it so I keep it disabled)
  • Cum Layer Visibility
  • Peeping Tom

Things changed/customized:

  • Menstrual Cycle – On
  • Birth Control Accuracy – Perfect
  • Crab Lice – Off
  • Romance Age Restriction – Off (disables adult and teen romance)
  • NPC Sex Duration – 1 minute
  • Player Sex Duration – 15 seconds per animation (some animations have several rotations so this just keeps them from going at it for hours)

If you like these settings and wish to download:

  • First, download my settings (automatic download), unzip the folder and place the Mellindi’s_Modified_Settings_1_2021 and Exported_Settings_List files into your WickedWhimsSettings folder located with your Wicked Whims mod in your Mods Folder.
  • Next, follow the instructions for Exporting/Importing Your Settings (to import the settings) in this article and you’re good to go!

Since Wicked Whims is all about romance, well… sort of, check out my other articles about romance, relationships and pregnancy!

    1. Hey 🙂 After clicking ‘WickedWhims Settings’, Nudity is the first option in the menu. Did you click it to continue following the tutorial? If you’re saying you don’t have nudity at all, you may have to reinstall Wicked Whims just in case something wasn’t installed properly the first time.


  1. It says the ts4 whicked whims file is missing or its too many flies of that same file every time i instaill the mod for 2020 update


    1. Hi 😊 Have you tried deleting both Wicked Whims flies then reinstalling? When you do, I suggest deleting both files from your mods folder beforehand (not copying/pasting over) to make sure you have only the correct files. There should be two files, a script file and a package file. If you continue to have these errors, I would suggest throughly checking your mods folder to be sure there aren’t duplicate files hidden somewhere.


  2. Thank you for this. I’ve been interested in the atractiveness system but this tutorial really explains how to use it in game. The others I’ve read have been kind of hard to understand.


    1. Hey! I’m glad to hear you found this little guide helpful. I’ll be updating it soon with instructions on how to turn some of the other features off too so keep an eye out for that 🙂
