GTA sex scandal goes down under

Grand theft auto-eroticism

THE AUSTRALIAN CENSOR is examining whether Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas contains graphic sexual content.

The Office of Film and Literature Classification is planning a thrusting examination into claims that the game's content reportedly becomes sexually explicit if players download and install a mod.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, if the claims were true, then the game would be banned.

The mod was first noted by a US media watchdog group and tongue-twister the National Institute on the Media and the Family, who wanted the game banned, saying that the plot is already objectionable.

However if it is full of pornographic sex scenes then it should not only be banned, but all copies should be burnt and if possible jumped on. The controversy has prompted an investigation by the US Entertainment Software Ratings Board, which also wants to examine the sex scenes closely.

Rockstar Games, which made the games, are not commenting if its programmers created the sex scenes and the mods just unlocked them. At least that is what the mod's author, Patrick Wildenborg from Holland, claims. µ
