Tomorrow hordes of zombies will invade the streets around the world caused by an airborne fungus. The disease is incurable and the symptoms are similar to rabies.

These zombies try to infect and engage in sexual relationships with anyone in sight. When no humans are near they arrange a massive orgy with each other. The incubation period is 30 minutes to 1 hour.

With some time the fungus starts growing around the sexual organs making them bigger and granting its host super strength and virulent airborne pheromones that attract their prey.

The fungus mostly infects women. Infection rates in men are 5 %. Behaviour is the same, regardless of the age.

How much disruption and chaos can my outbreak cause? What are the weaknesses and strengths of my zombie girls?

Note: Fast zombies. They still have some intelligence. Let's say New York City is overrun to make this more interesting and the zombies eat humans only when they are hungry. When they are not they have sex with each other or they try to force a healthy human.

    $\begingroup$ Your punctuation is very strange. Why do you use a comma instead of a period+space? $\endgroup$ – JDługosz May 3 '17 at 4:34

    $\begingroup$ «How would everyone react?» is primary opinion based. «What are the pros and cons of my zombies?» doesn’t make sense — are you weighing a decision of some kind? $\endgroup$ – JDługosz May 3 '17 at 4:37

    $\begingroup$ We have a Sandbox on Meta. You can post your first draft of a question there as an answer to that post and wait a bit for feedback. That way we can help you with the general stuff like punctuation(!), grammar, choice of words, on-topic/off-topic, ... before you release the question onto the Main Site. This might be helpful for you for future questions as you changed your question 6 times in the last 3 hours. Plus there are two revisions from a4android and me. $\endgroup$ – Secespitus May 3 '17 at 7:29

    $\begingroup$ Another "High Concept, Do My Work For Me" question. Three big problems with the question: 1) This is not so much world building as it is story building. 2) It is very broad and entirely opinion-based. 3) You are asking us to do your work for you. Ok, so you came up with a concept... zombies that screw instead of kill. That is the start of a story, even possibly a world if taken to its extreme far end. But you need to write this story/build this world. If you just show up here saying "Here is the concept, now tell me all the consequences of that, ok, thanks, bye"... nope, not good. $\endgroup$ – MichaelK May 3 '17 at 9:23

    $\begingroup$ We are here to help you when you get stuck; whenever you have a problem that provides a road block for you in your creative process. You can even ask some creative catalysts that might add flavour, or take your existing work further, deeper or in an entirely different direction. But the thing is: you have no problem here, you are not stuck. You have just invented the concept and then gone nowhere with it. So I suggest that you start working on this on your own, and if then you run into obstacles, that is when you ask here and we will be sure to help you. :) $\endgroup$ – MichaelK May 3 '17 at 9:26

I'm torn whether this is a legitimate question, but on the chance it is: Insofar as their sexual tendencies go, I would think there's nothing particularly special about your zombies being horny rapists, per se. The super strength and pheromones obviously are beneficial to the zombies, making it easier to catch their prey. But in the end, whether they're standard fare, mindless brain-munchers, or intelligent, sex-crazed undead, eventually you're gonna get eaten. Your zombies just apparently like to play with their food, first.

To your question, common sense suggests that the young and the old are easier prey than healthy adults. Unless, of course, the adult is aroused by those pheromones beyond the point of reason.

Basically, the zombies' nemesis would be a vengeful eunuch in his 20s.
