Exactly. It would be a challenge.

I was talking about a serious, mature RPG about sex. The game should take sex seriously, which is not the same as the sex being "serious". Imagine a game where sex is an essential activity, like combat in a more traditional RPG. Your character could have sexual skills and traits, rather than skills and traits geared towards fighting. Why not magic too? Sexual magic.

I wasn't thinking RL at all. By "serious" I mean that sex should not be thrown in for laughs or titilation alone (though it could possibly be both fun and titillating) but be an essential part of a proper game.

Actually, what I pictured when making my initial comment was escapist indeed; something like a game based upon Piers Anthony's Cluster series, where your character would have to figure out an alien culture and its sexuality, come to understand what turns the aliens on and learn how to perform satisfying alien sex.
