I mean porn is fine and serves its purpose - but to actually sit down and play a sex game would be a complete waste of time, as far as I'm concerned.
Yes. Driving is also incredibly boring. Particularly while actually doing it. At least to me. Doesn't prevent driving games from being very popular, though.

Actually, I think driving games have a lot in common with a hypothetical erotic game. Test Drive Unlimited lets you drive exclusive cars that most of us could only dream of driving in real life. Pure escapism and pure car pornography. Similarly, a good erotic game would let you engage in sexual activities you could only dream of in real life. Pure escapism also.

That said, I would prefer a deep RPG, complete with with lots of character creation options, quests, choice and consequence etc, all in a detailed sexually themed exotic setting, rather than some sex simulator akin to a simple driving game.
