Based on the ESRB’s rating summary for Dragon Age II, we’ve learned the game will feature an implied oral sex scene. Put on your ponchos, folks, because we’re forecasting a media shitstorm. It sounds like the scene will be pretty tame, as the ESRB states that “there is no depiction of the sex act; the camera pans out to the rest of the room.” Even so, remember the huge deal Fox News and other outlets made about Mass Effect’s “graphic sex scenes” that were anything but? Yeah, there’s no way this is going to be any smoother.
Now, Mass Effect was good-old-fashioned baby-making sex (even though it was potentially interspecies, which I’m sure is a big no-no in the Heartland). Just imagine all the harm that could happen to young, undeveloped minds if they see such indecent acts like fellatio!
If you’re a true conservative, you certainly understand the need for a nanny-state that protects us all from such horrific unnatural acts, right? Err… wait, maybe I’m getting my politics mixed up, but whatever. Unless the media and politicians actually learned from the Mass Effect ordeal (unlikely) I expect to be seeing more hilariously uninformed opinions condemning another Bioware game for graphic sex scenes sometime soon.
