At one point in Final Fantasy VII, Cloud has to dress up like a woman to infiltrate a brothel and get some information from its owner. While undercover in the brothel, Cloud has to flirt with several male customers and even a bath with them. It is not clear what physical interaction takes place while Cloud is in the tub with the men. One of the bathers is Mukki (read more about Cloud’s interaction with Mukki here).
