Sex is very relevant in video games, in movies, and in any other artistic expression of life ... If done in an elegant and classy way as most have said; If kept away from the children, as most have said (<18); If it is not gratuitous, as most have said, and more.

Society is changing. The uproar recently regarding birth control and the Catholic church shows that. Obama's stance on gay marriage and all that goes with that in the public eye shows that too. Gen Y and the younger generations are more sexually open and indifferent to corsets and the Victorian age of thinking. We are now a Ludic society, we like to play and touch and get involved in everything we do. Every part of life should be an experience, not a walk through a Renaissance-era museum or sitting on the bench on the sidelines. Heck no! Hey, and in this economy some of the best things in life are free, sex being one of them (some of the time?) Although an argument could be made that sex is very costly (dating, marriage, kids, divorce, etc).

So in summary, it would be a lot cheaper if there were sex in video games, it is long overdue, and it might also teach people a few moves, and the right ways to act in public towards potential partners. If done correctly of course.

It already IS.
Just look for Mature 17+ or Adults Only 18+ games if you wanna see sex in games.

Thing is that, for mature people, sex is as common as kill, espionage, murder, theft and other stuff. Yeah, it is that simple.

Are you an adult? Have you played Mass Effect series?

If you have ever seen Japanese games, some of their games are a LOT more risque than ours. They feature much more sex and violence than ours. If you take a typical R-rated film (action or drama), there are 3 things you can count on being in it (85% of the time): sex/nudity, violence/gore and language. Sometimes the sex/nudity is a brief 2-3 second shot, but it is in there. Die Hard (1988) is a prime example. That film has violence and gore, language (yipee-kai-yay, motherf***er) and a brief shot of a woman's chest. Translate that to a game and put a M-rating. But then again, if you can put a woman's bare chest in an R-rated film (which allows 17-year-olds to view it), why not put the same level of nudity in a game? I could go either way. If it adds to the story, then why not put it in there. Nudity and Sex just for the sake of sex and nudity does not make a game. If that were the case, then just make it AO and let the players decide whether or not to buy a game like that (I'm looking at YOU Playboy: The Mansion!). Also, ever hear of the Leisure Suit Larry Franchise? That one had sex back when it was TOTALLY TABOO to have anything to do with sex in video games. Just sayin. If you want to have sex and nudity in films, it's only natural for gamers to want some in video games. Hell, a game company even made the Book of Erotic Fantasy for DnD 3.5. Why not?

I for one refuse to buy any games with sex in them. I have too many kids come over that want to play video games, and personally I have played video games for almost 3 decades now and I have never seen any use for sex in games. So far God of War, Far Cry, Red Dead Redemption, Max Payne, Mass Effect, etc. have lost sales from me. Games are games, and kids are going to want to play them. I will not feed their minds with nudity and sex. Where is the innocence of children gone? If video game sellers want to get my sale then I suggest that they make an option to cut out sexual content like call of duty does with extremely violent content. Easily done, and I am sure they would gain more sales from people appreciative that they took the time to consider the younger or conservative crowd.

FYI, Mass Effect doesn't force you to experience the sex scenes. It's entirely optional for the whole trilogy, and the choices not to have them play out are clearly labeled and impossible to miss. So right there, BioWare has "lost sales" from you not because it has unskippable nudity and sexual content, but because you're uninformed. And to your point, yes, kids will be kids and they'll want to play games. It's your job as a parent or guardian to not let them play games rated M on your watch. Games are VERY clearly labeled for what they have in them, and if your kids aren't mature enough to be playing a game that requires them to be seventeen or older, then they shouldn't be playing them. Dead Space has absolutely no sex in it whatsoever, but the gameplay centers around "tactical dismemberment" of your enemies. Would you let them play that one? Because in my mind, that's a hundred times worse than seeing the one-and-a-half minute culmination of a Mass Effect romance subplot. This isn't a failing of the game industry, my friend. This is a failing on the part of responsible parenthood. Your kids can easily watch something ten times raunchier than what Mass Effect has to offer simply by turning on the television. At least video games are labeled and, for the most part, controlled.

THANK YOU!! You finally said what NO ONE ELSE has said in about 15+ years. Be a parent, man up, and get a backbone. If you don't want your kid playing video games with violence, sex, etc; then GET INFORMED, don't buy those games and pay attention to what their friends are allowed to play.

Sure, In a Mature rated game when it helps add to the story/plot. After all, there has been sex in movies for years... and video games have huge entertainment value. But will the media blame underage sex on video games like they do violence? Probably...

All of the games you listed are rate "M" for Mature.
Rating Category: Content Descriptors: Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Nudity, Strong Language, Strong Sexual Content, Use of Drugs

As in NOT FOR KIDS anyway... (Just like an R rated movie)

Just check before alowing kids to play games.

The problem is that people seem to think all video games are for kids... Just because it was the word "games" attached to it, does not mean it's for children. Maybe the industry needs to change the term to "Interactive Entertainment" or something else.

It's okay to put people being mutilated and a game but don't allow two people pleasing eachother. How could you say you don't mind violence but you put your foot down when it comes to sex. Lol. I love when people say"A kid can get a hold of it". A kid can get ahold of porn like I did quite a bit as a kid! They can also get ahold of a gun and kill someone. A kid can get a hold of a lot worse. I think your children have seen sex before unless they live in a magic land where everyone does nothing but eat lolli pops and skip down yellow brick roads!

I think it should be entirely up to the script writer/director like movies do (for the most part). The fact that it would make a game AO is complete bullshit, if I can watch a rate R movie without a supervising adult at the age of 17 that is just short of a porno, I shouldn't have to worry about whether or not I can buy a game that is coming out because of a sex scene or two.... and it's not the consoles or their manufactures that ban AO games, it's the distributors that do, you can release anything on consoles you just can't guarantee that it will be pushed to any stores.

Like in movies and books I'd like it to be important to the story, and I'd like the choice to skip full blown animations of it.
I feel like every gamer should have an option of accepting or declining the option for it to be shown. That way everyone is happy.
I like the idea of relationships (granted if they're realistic) but the implied sex works better for me than showing me everything.

If there is sex in the game thats fine, just dont have it as a mindless action otherwise it is completely pointless. Make sure to label the game for that too, so that any moron that screams that the game is truly perverted or inappropriate cant say anything considering the game is labeled and they clearly bought it. In this day an age, the M rating is there for a reason - if you are insulted easily you shouldn't be playing M rated games in the first place. As for a kids, it depends on them and YOU as a parent. I have played M rated games since the age of 4 and my parents saw how i acted and to them it never was a problem. Thus i was always able to access the games because I KNEW BETTER. This cant be said for everyone else though, so be a good parent and watch what your kids are doing and moniter , and if you feel that they arent mature dont buy the games. Please dont be like those people who buy the games and THEN bash it for the content being shown to your kids just because you somehow didnt see the ESRB rating on it.
