I very much hope that you are wrong. Combat is tried and tested, safe and simple. The easy way out for developers and players alike. Almost any other activity seems more difficult to implement. But not impossible.

Nonsense. Don't you know that the most erogenous zone of all is your brain? Erotica only needs to stimulate your imagination. Regular porn doesn't stimulate the senses beyond sound and vision anyway.

As mentioned, I could imagine 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.

I also remember playing an old text adventure named Leather Goddesses of Phobos. It wasn't as sexy as the title would have you believe, not even on the "lewd" setting, but let your imagination take the title and run with itů
