We in the west do not want to see kids in sexual display like this even remotely.
The TLC channel says hi with popular reality shows like "Honey Boo Boo" & "Redneck Beauty Pageants".

The amount of projection in this thread is insane, and I'm staunch against any kind of child sexualization.

Just don't have a double standard when your own culture celebrates creepy children beauty pageants on NATIONAL TELEVISION.

No. My intention was to point to the train of thought 'this makes me feel like; thus it must be this; ban it'. Which is used in many cases. Homosexuality is the most striking example of recent times I think.

There are laws in place, if they aren't strict enough we can change them. There are lots of things that offend me and I don't want to engage with. Banning/Prohibition is a severe measure that should be handled responsibly and reasonably.

This is a pretty disingenuous response. One thing is a picture of a bodybuilder, the other is a videogame of 15 year olds being potentially raped by a tentacle monster, naked except some bubbles from her bath, lingerie. You are defending pedophilia buddy.
Good thing that they are:
  1. Not real people.
  2. Not in realistic proportions.
  3. The content (e.g. tentacles) is not even realistic.
  4. Voiced by adults.
in contrast to something like Cuties where:
  1. The characters in the movie were chronologically underaged.
  2. Those characters were doing very sexualized actions in front of adults.
  3. The actresses who played those characters are also underage.

Are you ok with depicting raping of animated 3 year olds? I mean, it wouldn't be real, right? No one gets harmed.

Personally it makes me wildly uncomfortable when I see women's gymnastics at the Olympics, it's ACTUALLY sexualizing REAL life minors (I guess some are even younger than 15 due to countries like China cheating/lying about their ages). Do I think women's gymnastics should be banned? According to this thread I should immediately think that way.

People seem confused on which characters are being exploited in this game. The protagonist is the one in danger of assault here. He's just doing what he must to defend himself from those crazy girls. If you want to argue about what's wrong with the game, you should be talking about what they're trying to do to that poor lad.

And that's the thing. Those children in "Honey Boo Boo" and "Redneck Beauty Pageants" are real people. Meanwhile, you can go to the game's information page and check the cast. All of the VA's are adults.

Don't watch at work lol.

It's pretty damn cringe, but no more cringe than three lowlifes robbing, killing, and running people over with cars in a fake American west coast city. 🤔



Either you're against censorship at all times, or you're enabling it
These are supposed to be video GAMES. People arnt playing GTA to beat off like they are with this softcore child porn.

Nice complex question fallacy. Come back when you can actually ask a question without a false presupposition.


Good thing that they are:
  1. Not real people.
  2. Not in realistic proportions.
  3. The content (e.g. tentacles) is not even realistic.
  4. Voiced by adults.

You can keep the silly definitions that you just learnt in your english class, I'm just putting the scenario you described and are using to defend this content to the test. Fine, instead of 3 year old, let's say a 3D or 2D animation of a 11 year old getting raped by a tentacle monster could fit the bullet points you just posted. It seems you'd be totally ok with this given your argument.

Do you enjoy this type of content? It goes beyond just your typical "sex fantasy fulfilment for a loser animu pervert" content, this is a game where you straight up give orgasms to 13 year old looking girls. That's content for pedophiles buddy.

Are you absolutely certain of this?

Hot Coffee comes to mind, And as far as I know, this isn't child porn.

What's funny is some people enjoy quirky games. I play everything, including the first Gal Gun, and not once did I think I needed to whip my dick out and beat off like people seem to think around here. This thread reeks of Era with the hate that is flowing here. Imagine calling another human a pedophile for playing a video game. There is no sex in these games, they are stupid fun, much like the Senran Kagura games, and many others.

A matter of different cultures I guess.

And I see no problem in any of those games. I think any responsible and mentaly sane adult should be able to differentiate a funny game from pedo stuff, the same way he/she can differentiate a violent game from snuff/gore stuff.

Folks, there are a lot of reductive takes in this thread, and a lot of leaps in logic against peoples characters. If the purpose of your participation is to project onto someone then call them out/suggest bans then you're liable to be removed from the thread. A topic like this requires both maturity and nuance. Unless there is actual tangible evidence of alarming comments, or those that broach 'red flag' territory, then we expect the discussion to be held in good faith. What we're not here for - or will look unfavourably on - are the stupid internet comments like "anime fans are all pedo's" or "you're defending this game, that means you're a closet pedo". Basically posts that aren't interested in having a discussion around censorship, and focus on accusing other members of being vile human beings, just because they hold a contrary position that isn't built on a fetish or sexual foundation.


And, merry christmas everyone

Holy mother of shit, now that's something I shouldn't have googled.

Eitherway here in Spain we have animal torture on public TV (bullfighting), which probably would look like disturbing shit in most places but lots of people here are totally fine with it.

So yeah, totally a cultural thing.

Another porn reference.



"just school girls guys"





Here you got your demography.


We in the west do not want to see kids in sexual display like this even remotely.

Go print this shit out and showcase parents of young kids if they find nothing wrong with those pictures. They will probably call the cops on you already.

They don't look like children it's otaku styled anime. I laugh at how anyone in the west can REEE about this when the Last of Us 1 was literally having ellie being raped by full grown men, cuties on netflix and spongebob is gay.

Wrong. This game is not classified as child porn. I don't know where you got your info wrong but it's highly incorrect.



There was a specific hentai game (very controversial) mentioned in that supreme court decision. It remains legal to buy and sell in the US.

The Canada Border Agency is a good example because it specifically singles out anime as an example on Page 13:


Any anime that involves children in sexual acts is considered Child porn in Canada. Video games and manga are treated no differently.

Rapelay isn't technically banned in Canada but would be considered child porn. Its this weird grey area that only hardcore perverts venture into because you could get charged (people have for importing loli manga). Its no different in America.

That's false.


"Prohibits computer-generated child pornography when "(B) such visual depiction is a computer image or computer-generated image that is, or appears virtually indistinguishable from that of a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct"; (as amended by 1466A for Section 2256(8)(B) of title 18, United States Code)."

None of the girls in this game are indistinguishable from a real life kid.

What game is "this game"? Rapelay or Gal Gun?

Both, afaik neither game are illegal or classified as illegal CP in the US. Fuck that I even have to google this shit though.

Gal Gun doesn't even come remotely close to breaking any laws. People are getting upset over nothing. Even Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 caused a shit storm on the internet when all the girls are clearly grown adults. Lewd otaku simply triggers a lot of people.

Rapelay on the other hand could land you in jail because it depicts a minor having sex. BUT, its not "banned"....

Here is an example:

"A U.S. comic book collector is being sentenced to six months in prison after pleading guilty to importing and possessing Japanese manga books depicting illustrations of child sex and bestiality.

Christopher Handley was sentenced in Iowa on Thursday, almost a year after pleading guilty to charges of possessing "obscene visual representations of the sexual abuse of children."

The 40-year-old was charged under the 2003 Protect Act, which outlaws cartoons, drawings, sculptures or paintings depicting minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct, and which lack "serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value." Handley was the nation's first to be convicted under that law for possessing cartoon art, without any evidence that he also collected or viewed genuine child pornography."

I highly doubt that guy had super lifelike manga. Hentai in general lives in a weird grey area of legality.

Do what you want. All consoles ban porn, this game is just pretending not to be.
you didn't see last of us 2 sex scenes did you and how initially it got away censor free.

Cyberpunk probably has sex scenes too, the character creator mentions nudity. If not for the bugs, no one would have a problem with Cyberpunk being on their platform.

I think in australia or austria they ban adult porn stars with small breasts from being able to work in the porn industry.

This is not "porn", there's no nudity, no penetration, this is just lewd perverted girls in skimpy clothing, not so different you see in real life when girls wear their mini shirts at school or at the mall, or bikinis at the beach. If you dared to post real "porn" here, you'll most likely get banned instantly.

Question to all of you people who say this game is pedobait:

Should tv shows/competitions about highschool cheerleading or dance or gymnastics be banned? Because that is "sexualizing minors" - hell, they do some very provocative routines, way more sexualized than this game. Is that pedobaiting?
Do those shows have people squirting water guns etc on the kids genitals and trying to make the kids have orgasms?

If not then it’s not really the same thing, because that’s literally what you’re doing in this game.

Ok Prude.

There's no "kids" in the game or else it would be illegal to distribute in North America.

Keep projecting with your double standards when your country holds Children Beauty Pageants like this every year:

We’ve just had our first person arrested here in Australia for importing a sex doll that looks pretty much exactly like the school kids in this game, even though it wasn’t sold as “underage girl sex doll” because research has shown that they’re likely to increase the chance of the person escalating their fantasies to real people, namely kids.

Hot take, but maybe we should allow those dolls because it's better to have pedos fucking dolls than actual children.

Also poor lad, being a coomer shouldn't be reason for arrest so long as you don't hurt anyone.

Firstly I’m not American, we don’t have those fucked up beauty pageants here.

secondly, people in here are saying the KIDS in this game are aged 16-18. Are you saying that a 16 year old is an adult? Isn’t the age of consent in most of America 18? You’re most definitely not an adult at 16 years old. Americans don’t even let people drink or vote until they’re 21, which is pretty telling on what they consider an adult and a child.

This thread has been eye opening, gonna go back and add a lot of people to the ignore list. What adult in their right mind wants to play a game about making 16 year old school girls that look about 12 have orgasms and look up their skirts??! And then to have the nerve to say it’s just “a bit of fun” and that there’s “nothing sexual about it”. Why don’t you go down the beach and do that on some 16 year old girls and see how far you get?

Just think about that - thinking and telling people that there’s nothing overtly sexual about a game where you try to give school girls orgasms and look up their skirts and squirt water guns at their genitals lol. Absolutely mind bogglingly incredible.

It's pretty well known that Australia arrests anyone for anything.

They also have the most retarded ratings board in the world and the worst airports in the world too.

That was what some people were thinking, and tbh it does make a bit of sense. That’s not what the federal polices research found though.

I don’t have it because the articles I read didn’t link it, they said it was (iirc) research done by the Australian Federal Police, so likely something internal done based on arrests and what they found in the possession of pedophiles etc.

Maybe they just don't see the game as something sexual at all, and just some dumb, cringey fun.

Like that kind of guilty pleasure that you try once just to see how is it, have some mindless fun and never come back to it.

Doesn’t mean it’s not sexual though. Trying to give girls orgasms is inherently sexual.
Yeah, and killing people in most games is inherently murderous, realistic and violent gore.

But they are just games man, and one can choose if they want to play them or not.

I won't play this Gal Gun tho, I'll keep playing my weeby JRPGs and my violent western action games, but rest asured, I won't be saving the world nor killing any pedestrians any time soon.
