Japanese Political Party Targets Rape Games

May 21, 2009 -

In the wake of the controversy generated by RapeLay, one of Japan's political parties has issued a general condemnation against computer games featuring forced sex.

The news comes by way of erotic games site Sankaku Complex (NSFW):

Japan’s Koumeito party, long a member of the ruling coalition, has condemned adult games featuring sexual coercion and violence as being a highly negative influence on Japan’s tiny rates of sex crimes. They are calling for a ban or further restrictions on their sale.

GP: I'll confess to having little knowledge of Japanese politics. Meanwhile, Sankaku Complex veers off into a rant, as one might expect for a site that supports such games, so I'll just leave it there.

You have a choice as a society either you kill off the harden criminals so you have room and money to manage the non harden ones or you slap them on the wrist and randomly let them back out in society where they can pray upon innocents, there is no perfect solution but when it comes to repeat offender's of rape and murder whatever rights you have are waved for the greater good of society. That and perhaps forcing  politicians to have open tot eh public records on everything they have are the only heavy rights dcking I would agree with.

Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Let's renegotiate them.

They're only doing this out of convenience, given the uproar the game caused.

Nice throw-in at the end there, Dennis.

It's porn. It's just a cheap porn game with a story thrown in, much like anything that can be found online or anything else for that matter. There is no actual rape, and no one is actually harmed. There is no reason to call for this ban, and I completely support the right to make games like this. Whether or not I support the making of these games is irrelevant. We should have the right and ability to play and make any sort of game or enjoy other forms of entertainment, porn or not.

The point of games (and porn) is to do something that you can't normally do. It's for entertainment. I can't rape people in real life because it is immoral (and an extreme infringement on other peoples' rights), and so if I wish to simulate it to a degree, my options are having a real-life partner that will try it as a roleplay (it's hard enough to get a girlfriend, let alone one that'll try it out) or play a game with it. Without an outlet for sexual fervor...someone without as much control as me might eventually turn to something truly sick and twisted. Likewise, sometimes I go on fun killing sprees in GTA and other sandbox games just because it can be fun to blow up everything once in awhile.

If you don't like it, don't buy it. Keep it away from your kids if you want. DON'T tell someone ELSE what THEY should look at, otherwise you are a hypocrite. A hypocrite for wanting to make people "safer" and by protecting rights, while taking away free speech.

10000% agreed.

I personally have no desire to play these kind of games. But i understand that it harms NOBODY, and i dont have ANY right to stop anyone else playing it. I understand i have the right to NOT BUY IT if i dont want it. Simple. Totally agree about the hypocracy when apparently GTA (and mass murder / torture) is acceptable and should be protected yet this shouldnt. If the only reason somebody has for such logic is 'because thats just how they feel', with no factual reasoning behind it, then they are a hypocrite. simple.

They are calling for a ban or further restrictions on their sale.

They are already restricted for +18. Looks like japanese politicians are suffering a case of "moral panic" because some people on NY don´t understand that kind of games are created just for japanese market, let alone they took like 4 years on discover that game.

I neither like rape in my porn, but just because you ban rape-porn fantasy from the shelves, it doesn´t mean that rape is magically gonna a dissapear from the radar.

Sadism is part of the sex culture in Japan and on many other cultures. But fiction and porn are not the reason of sexual violence.

Andrew EisenMore pre-order crap but pretty neat alt-costumes for Street Fighter 5. Love it when they take the time to model new outfits and hairstyles as opposed to going the easy route with a palette swap. Pick your favorite because each is retailer exclusive...08/31/2015 - 3:52pm

Brad GlasgowIt's the same argument as all her videos. She argues that the tropes reinforce bad behavior. She has no evidence to support that.08/31/2015 - 2:27pm
InfophilePredictions: 1) People will be mad and criticize her without even watching the video. 2) People will be upset that she criticizes things they like without thinking about whether the criticism has merit08/31/2015 - 1:29pm
