Enough with the endless controversy over violence in video games.
Instead, let's talk about sex.

Raunchy, full-contact sex -- the sort of thing you'd see in a porn
movie, only with cartoonlike, computer-generated images.

According to some software-savvy game geeks, you can find this kind of
seamy excitement hidden inside one of the world's most popular
computer games, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

As if Grand Theft Auto lacked for controversy. It's already the
computer game that critics of the industry love to hate because of its
relentless brutality. GTA has inspired a spate of legislation in such
places as Illinois, Georgia, North Carolina, and Washington, D.C., all
aimed at keeping violent games out of the hands of minors.

But if Dutch gamer Patrick Wildenborg is to be believed, enemies of
GTA have a new reason for outrage.
