Happy Anniversary Hot Coffee!
Roughly a year after the infamous Hot Coffee scandal which pretty much rocked the video game industry, the first annual Sex in Video Games conference was held in San Francisco last week... trust me, the thing was way less exciting than it sounds.
Essentially, this event was put on by Evergreen Events with the goal of discussing a plethora of subjects including the controversy of erotic content in games, the workings of the adult industry, "emergent sex" in games, and why the gaming and adult entertainment industries haven't had a great deal of success working with one another.
