Today, porn is much more than 2D videos. There are VR headsets, synchronizable sex toys and numerous erotic games available for all mobile devices. Porn video games have been around for almost half a century, and they are only becoming more advanced and realistic. These facts about the industry may surprise you!
- First erotic video games
Possibly, the first example was Softporn Adventure, a text-based game for Apple II that was released in 1981. It featured sexual themes focused on male interests. There were 25,000 copies sold, which is equal to a quarter of all Apple II’s bought at the time.
The following year, Japanese firm Koei unveiled the world’s first erotic game featuring sexually explicit graphics. Titled Nightlife, it worked on the NEC PC-8801. It was followed by another Koei’s brainchild, Danchi Tsuma no Yuwaku (Seduction of the Condominium Wife). This role-playing adventure with color graphics was a real hit.
- Porn games that got banned
One of the most vivid examples of outrageous sex games is the RapeLay. As the title suggests, it is all about explicit sexual violence. Produced by the Illusion studio in 2006, it puts the player in the shoes of a sexual predator who stalks and brutally rapes a mother of two and her daughters.
The game has been outlawed in Indonesia, Argentina, Indonesia, and New Zealand. In the USA, it was rated AO, which means it could still be found online.
- You can have virtual sex in the Sims
The immensely popular virtual doll’s house with AI housemates is more than just a soap opera. The characters fall in love and they can have sex. Here the genitalia is blurred out. However, you will see much more in Second Life, where you can actually equip your character with sexual organs.
- Some people use non-sex games for sexual stimulation
In 2002, Tetsuya Mizuguchi, presented his psychedelic music game called Rez, which was accompanied by a so-called “Trance Vibrator”. Although the vibrations of the massage device were supposed to be felt with the feet, ingenious users have found another application for it. Although it was rather weak for a sex toy, the sensations on the crotch were described as quite pleasurable.
- Today, porn games come with hi-tech accessories
Japan is making useful peripherals for its VR sex game. Just think of Tenga, which is a full-body sex suit equipped with a special masturbating cup and a pair of fake boobs. Porn game “Let’s play with Nanai” is used with a special inflated female torso.
Another Japanese invention, the Ju-C Air peripheral, masturbates the player’s penis and provides in-game feedback for Custom Maid 3D at the same time.
