Sex scenes have always had a place in video games, but lately we’re seeing some fantastic gay content that never existed before. Exhibit A is Dragon Age: Inquisition, newly released and already setting our loins afire with some steamy gay sex scenes.
We have Canadian developer Bioware to thank for this. They’ve always been swell about having queer content in their games, and this is possibly their most inclusive title yet.
Dorian is the first exclusively gay party member in a Dragon Age game. Here’s a video that culminates in romance. There’s also sex scene that has more butts than we can show you on this family-friendly site, but you can find it here.
You can also sex the burly Bull. Here’s how that looks.
And here’s what happens when your party walks in on you.
A slightly modded Dragon Age 2 allowed a hairier version of Hawke to romance Anders:
Here’s a scene from the first Dragon Age, and possibly the most explicit of the trilogy. (Again, a little too much side-butt to display next to Queerty’s advertisers, but you can see it on YouTube. Go figure.)
Origins also has a variety of scenes involving male companions and barely-covered butt cheeks.
Bioware’s Mass Effect 3 had some steamy scenes with Shepard and Kaidan. Here’s a compilation of both the gay romances and the lesbian ones.
On the less realistic end of the spectrum, The Sims has always been a haven for gay sex.
Fable 3 even has a gay wedding:
The earliest gay game sex scene we could find was 1995’s Gabriel Knight: The Beast Within, which isn’t quite a sex scene but certainly has some sexual overtones. Skip to 5:58:50 for some unsettling bedroom time.
There’s also this troubling encounter from Final Fantasy VII. Is Milo getting raped here? It’s kind of hard to tell.
Also troubling: in Leisure Suit Larry 6, flirting with a character named “Gary Fairy” results in a death state. Ughhhh.
And then there’s Saints Row IV. Nothing much to write home about — as though you’d write home about this anyway — aside from some exposed ass and unsexy offscreen naughtiness.
So, not all of these are great. But they could be worse — just look at what straight people consider the height of erotic gaming.
