Massive Sex Game Media Assault

Have you heard about Naughty America ... the game where "players will assume the forms of alluring but cartoonish people who meet, flirt and have sex with other player characters". No? Chances are you will shortly, if you read anything that pulls in AP news. Just doing some quick, relatively generic, news searches brings up the same AP story about upcoming adult video games on, BusinessWeek, San Diego News 8,, The News Sentinel, Chicago Tribune and Canoe Money.

Sadly, there's not much new here that hasn't been covered better previously. They do point out that the once hotly controversial "Spend The Night" is now icily on hold. Honestly, I still don't know why this is newsworthy to anyone. Unless there are still plenty of folk out there that think video games are the sole domain of pre-teens. Which, judging by the astonished look of shock on some politicians faces that anyone would want to play a violent game, I guess there are.

Still, I can't tell you how many google hits I get daily looking for some kind of nekkid fun. It's a capitalistic society, and if enough people want it ... someone will make it.

And honestly ... why do we think so many news agencies run with this story? Sex sells.
