I think that this is exactly the point - or one of them - How do you actually do it ? There simply is no experience with game makers for that.

But still - seeing that "Lula" appears to be so much "immature" - doesn't fit this into "games" rather/better than "serious sex" ? How would you define "serious sex", anyway ?

Games are meant for playing.
Games are meant to be played.
"Playing", however, is in my opinion NEVER something serious. War is serious, but not playing.

Any "serious and mature RPG" won't give me the sense of Escapism I'm seeking when I play games. It just would disturb my Escapism by putting too much RL into it.
And I really don't know/understand why people want to play games for NOT perform some sort of Escapism.
