Fallout New Vegas continues to be a fan favorite within the series thanks to its expansive world and rich narrative. This focus on meaningful player choices has undoubtedly influenced the direction of RPGs in the years since its release. But is a key feature missing in the game? Let’s find out if there are romanceable characters in Fallout New Vegas.

Romance in Fallout New Vegas

Fallout New Vegas doesn’t offer romances like some other RPGs games. There are no companions or NPCs you can build a relationship with that leads to a romantic commitment. However, there is an option to have a brief encounter with some characters that leads to (sort of) intimate scenes.

All Sleeping Partners in Fallout New Vegas

While there are no traditional relationships in Fallout New Vegas, you can have a one-time encounter with certain characters after completing specific quest in the game or meet particular requirements. All intimate scenes are fade-to-black moments with suggestive dialogue.


To unlock the intimate scene with Benny you need to:

  1. Be a female character.
  2. Have the Black Widow perk, obtained through levelling up and investing points in Speech.
  3. Progress through the main story until you confront Benny at The Tops casino in his penthouse suite.
  4. While talking with Benny, choose dialogue options associated with Black Widow perk (heart icon) and focus on flirting or seduction.
  5. Eventually Benny will suggest going to his room. After you sleep with him, you can kill him and take all his belongings.

Sarah Weintraub

Here’s how to unlock private interaction with Sarah Weintraub:

  1. Meet Sarah in Vault 21 shop.
  2. During the conversation, pass a 65 Speech and 75 Speech checks that hint seduction.
  3. Finish Suits You, Sarah side quest and bring her 30 Vault suits.
  4. Ask for a room and invite her in.

Red Lucy

If you want to unlock the intimate scene with Red Lucy, you need to:

  1. Speak with Red Lucy in the Thorn arena, located in the New Vegas sewers and start the Bleed Me Dry side quest.
  2. Find and bring her back the requested eggs. The difficulty increases with each batch.
  3. Ask her to meet her in private.


Fisto is a robotic character who offers adult services, regardless of your character’s gender. You can find him in Cerulean Robotics. The first service is free, but subsequent uses require payment of 10 caps each time, once Fisto is delivered to James Garret.


Dazzle is a prostitute living in Gomorrah’s courtyard. She will serve both man and female characters. Her fee can be lowered if you give her some Med-X, or through successful persuasion (Medicine or Speech checks). Lady Killer and Black Widow perks might also prove beneficial. If you insult Dazzle, she will no longer offer her services.


Joana is a prostitute at the Gomorrah Casino. The standard fee is 100 cups, but if you pass the 50 Speech check, you can secure a complimentary interaction.

Beatrix Russell

You can meet Beatrix Russell in Old Mormon Fort; she is one of the three people that need to be recruited for the Atomic Wrangler Casino. Once she is hired as a prostitute, you can book her services for 25 cups and the cost of a room.


Sweetie is a prostitute working at the Casa Madrid Apartments. She will offer her services to both men and women for 300 caps.


Jimmy will offer his services only to men at the Casa Madrid Apartments for 200 caps. You can meet him during A Bit of Slap and Tickle side quest.


Maude is another worker at the Casa Madrid Apartments who exclusively caters to male characters.

A former corporate employee who decided to move to the UK, where she devoted herself to collecting pop culture relics. Her favorite game genres include primarily RPGs and jRPGs, classic RTSs, as well as unique indie games. When, despite a sizable collection of games, she concludes there's nothing to play, she launches Harvest Moon, Stardew Valley, one of the KOTORs, or Baldur’s Gate 2 (Shadows of Amn, not Throne of Bhaal) for the hundredth time. After hours, she enjoys painting figurines or admiring her collectibles and retro consoles.
