Chasing Maturity: Video Games and Sex

I found this 9-ish minute video lecture by Daniel Floyd, a professor at Savannah College of Art and Design, to be funny and interesting. Floyd looks at the history of sex in video games. He states “for as long as sex has existed in games it has been exploitive at worst and superficial at best.”

Floyd argues that there needs to be more sex in video games. He also believes that video games are an artistic medium that is in its infancy and asks “How can you have an art that denies sexuality?”

I realize that this is not really relevant to many library collections. While some public libraries now have video game collections, I don’t know of any that collect Mature or Adults only rated games (Please correct me if I’m wrong).

Thanks Boing Boing again.
