Atari published the uncensored version available in the UK. The BBFC rating is "18" ("adult only" as 18 is the age of majority in the UK), a category that is acceptable for sale in retail stores. There is another BBFC rating "Restricted 18" that applies to pornography, products with this rating may only be sold in licensed Ďadultí stores.

It appears that the US market doesn't distinguish between varieties of "adult only" products thus "adult only" = kiss of retail death. I can see Atariís reasoning to be honest. It's not as if they were trying the sanitise to game merely to get a larger catchment 'kiddie' rating - it was censor or not publish at all.
