The Sims 4 Woohoo & Try for Baby Guide
Where Sims can Woohoo, and how to Make Woohoo Option Appear
The Sims 4's Woohoo can be performed in a few locations
Woohoo is the ultimate expression of love in The Sims 4, that is, unless you're going for the Serial Romantic Aspiration. The Woohoo interaction, along with Try for Baby, is a fun relationship booster that appears once a Sim couple has enough Romantic Relationship built up (the bottom, pink bar). Woohoo will make Sims happy in that it gives a 4h moodlet and raises Fun and Social needs, though slightly decreases hygiene. In this Guide, we'll reveal factors that affect likelihood of a successful Woohoo and where Sims can do it.
Video Guide: How to Woohoo & Try for Baby
Woohoo is available to all Sims Young Adult and up, and may be performed between any combinations of gender. Sims can also Woohoo with Ghosts, and there is actually an achievement for that, along with a couple of others related to Woohoo that are listed below. Teen Sims do not get Woohoo, but are able to Mess Around. The mechanics for that are similar to Woohoo. Sims need to have a relationship standing of around 40-50% in Romance to get it to appear. If two Sims are Married, Engaged, or Girlfriend/Boyfriend they should always have the option. The higher your relationship with them, the more likely they are to accept. There are other factors as well:
The Rocket has a special Woohoo Animation
Boosting Woohoo Success, and Factors that Lower it
Sims who have a high Charisma Skill are more likely to have their Woohoo interaction accepted by another Sim. Additionally, those with the Alluring Trait are 20% more likely to find success and have a +2 effective Charisma Skill Level. You get this trait by choosing a Love Aspiration when creating the Sim. Moods also affect it. Flirty has the biggest impact, while Playful and Happy is also helpful. If a Sim is Sad, Angry, Embarrassed, Stressed, or Bored, they are less likely to engage in Woohoo with your Sim. See the Romance Guide for more detailed info. When they're in a bad mood, improve it somehow, by filling their needs or cheering them up with a social, then try to Woohoo! You can learn more on improving Relationship standing with a Sim in the Relationships and Making Friends in The Sims 4 Guide.
Try for Baby
Try for Baby is the means of getting Pregnant in The Sims 4. In the game code, there's no mention of regular Woohoo causing Pregnancy, although players have reported it happening. Sims should accept this interaction as often as they accept an invitation to Woohoo. The base chance to get Pregnant from the Try for Baby interaction is the same for any location: 80%. If your Sim has the Fertile Reward, this jumps to 150%, which presumably greatly increases the likelihood of having Twins or Triplets. Learn more about Babies and Pregnancy Here.
Woohoo can also be done in the Rocket Ship and Observatory
Where to Woohoo
Here are the Woohoo locations for The Sims 4. Where you can do it depends upon which Expansion packs you own. If none of these are on the current lot, the Woohoo option will not come up no matter how high your Sims' relationship is For the Base game, you are able to Woohoo on or in the following objects:
- A Double Bed - This just means you have to have one large enough, so a single bed won't do.
- The Rocket Ship - Once built, just click it and Woohoo With... will appear, assuming they are willing to try this!
- The Observatory - Woohoo in this one is not very special, but the Sims seem to enjoy it.

How to Woohoo
In order to build up to Woohoo, you should use low-risk Romantic Interactions on the target Sim. Things like Hug, Pick-Up Line, Ask if Single, and Flirt are less likely to be rejected than Kiss, Caress, and things like that. Build up to those, and know that a higher friendship level (40% - Friends) will help as well. Look to get the Sim in a Flirty mood, and once the interaction is available, and you've got a Bed, Rocket Ship or Observatory on the lot, try to Woohoo! If your Sim meets another on a public lot, you can use Travel Here With.. to go home, or even invite them on a Date to your Sim's home. Getting Gold on a Date will give your Sim the VIP Bucket in the household inventory. This object is great for the living room or bedroom, as it has a Flirty Aura. You can learn more about getting Flirty here.

I don't know if this is deliberate, or weather it is just coincidence, however a few of my friends have claimed it has happened to them.
I even called my twins Austin and Anna! What did you call your kids ??
Also you could place the observatory (Gigantic telescope thing) in one of the parks.
Here's the link again The Girl Who Games - Free Play
Free Play is an entirely different game to The Sims 4, they do not share any game play features at all and the linked guide is the best guide to Free Play that I have personally found.
I'm not going to lie, I had whickedwims, and I deleted it and all the animations hoping I could just go back to woohooing but now woohoo is not working at all in anyway, neither will try for a baby.. Is there anything I could do?
If my sim is a man and I want to get the whole town pregnant will it work or do you have to play each woman? So basically will the women get pregnant if they are not the played character?
Note this is in a vanilla game with no mods. Many mods change this functionality.
Also, I can't install any mods cuase I can't find the mods folder in the game. Where is that?
I want to ask something.
My young adult sim get pregnant by my teen sim, what will happen to the baby?
It happened because I forgot that my teen sim has a partner, I accidentally turn him to teen again.
I was playing with a woman (young adult) and her bf (also young adult), both of them are spellcasters.I I wanted to try for baby, but i couldn't find the option.I kept looking on the internet and STILL didn't find it out.Do you know why?As i was searching on this website .i was about to click on "The Sims 4 Woohoo and Try for Baby Guide" but before i read the small fragment underneath and it said something about the new pack and the option, but it was all separated by :".." .I read the articles multiple times to see if i was missing something but still couldn't find anything.please help?:/
The article looks fine to me so not sure what you are meaning but sims need a high enough romantic relationship before woohoo and try for baby options unlock
