You guys do realise some people don't get any and really desperate, right?

Ok, on to the topic. I think it really depends on your age and personality

Kids obviously won't say no to it (plus those desperate people out there)!

For my part, I do enjoy well written romance or even a conversation between male & female characters in game. It's interesting to build a relationship with people with different personality and if the character in game is very different to our boring lives, hey, I won't say no For example, I enjoyed seeing Garrus and my FemShep entering relationship. I loved how my Bhaalspawn fell in love with Anomen (yes, Anomen is human but the lifestyle in Faerun is different to our modern city life). But as I said before, it doesn't have to end in romance To be honest, I hate it when the developers/modders take it too far and describe the sex scenes too vividly - makes game experience like a cheap pornography.
Well written anything can be great in the right place - but that's not really what we're talking about, as far as I can see.

We're talking about gameplay and an entire game oriented around having sex or exploring sex.

I can't deny such a game can be fun - I just reserve the right to be EXTREMELY sceptical about it. It truly sounds like one of the dumbest ideas I've heard when it comes to game concepts.

Something that's sort of interesting as a fleeting thought - and that's about it

Then again, there are people playing (and presumably enjoying) fishing simulators and farming simulators, so who am I to speak against such things!
