Well, do they?

My fiancé asked me that question the other day, after reading my “Adventures in Hentai Games” posts. He had that sexy twinkle in his eye, and I hate to disappoint, so instead of giving my standard “It’s for research” line I decided to stop and think.

It’s true that I’ve enjoyed my recent experiences playing h-games (short and few as they’ve been, admittedly), and maybe even more than I expected. It’s also true that they are, well, about sex. And when you watch/do anything concerning graphic sex for a few solid hours, it’s hard not to find yourself a little hot and bothered.

Still, I can’t say that–for me, at least–h-games serve their primary purpose as pornography. That is, I can’t see getting off on them. I think they’re fun, fascinating even… but I don’t know how well they’d function as masturbation material. Maybe, as with live-action porn, they’re more sexy when they’re clandestine–when you sneak them onto your computer and play them late at night while your family is sleeping.

As for me, I live with my fiancé, not my family, and I play my h-games in the middle of the day. Alas, perhaps I’ve ruined the magic. But I’m still free to enjoy the sexy (if less sexual) pleasures of an art critic and cultural observer. I may never fantasize about two beautiful men making out, for example–but thinking about it sure gets me intellectually hot.

So the real question is: Am I a sex dork? Yes, yes I am.

    Hey, Bonster!

    Perhaps the issue is, simply, that they’re generally just crappy games?

  2. Bonnie Ruberg Says:

    Ah, well, it depends how you define crappy :). Crappy as in not high end? Crappy as in hard to get off too? If we’re going to talk crappiness, we have to define it…

    Sex Dork is practically an oxymoron. There is nothing dorky about sex…

  4. Bonnie Ruberg Says:

    So, I’m not a dork? Hooray! Oh wait, there’s still the fact that I love video games, and I’m obsessed with language, and I thinking reading is cool, and… Alas, I’m probably still a dork :).

  5. Wileama Says:

    Hmm, the video game thing is more of a Nerd thing to me. However that’s the thing nerd, geek, and dork mean different things to different people. Anyway yes you probably are a dork Bonnie. :P But your not a sex dork. I refuse to allow that to exist in my english vocabulary. You can be a dork, who is also obsessed with sex. I’m taking this entirely to seriously. I should go relax…

    It would help if people (not suggesting Bonny, or anyone in particular) would take less notice of trash such as X-Change, and look at good stories such as Kana or Crescendo, perhaps the “ADV” genre (at least) would have a better reputation? Both of the latter two games have charming stories, and by the time you get to the sex in them, it feels like a natural part of the story and not smutty or gratuitous at all.

  7. TrannyGetYourGun Says:

    I kind of like hentai games. Most of the porn therein doesn’t really appeal to me specifically, but there’s a sense of delayed gratification in having to click 400 times before you get to see lasciviousness. It’s mingled with frustration, certainly, but in the age of the internet, there’s a certain adolescent charm in providing obstacles between yourself and the soft glow of electric sex.
