What we talk about when we talk about Japanese "adult" games

1UP has a great take on the prurient Western conversation about Japanese sex games. This thoughtful piece both examines what our obsession with “perverted” Japan says about us, and the actual place of these games in Japanese culture. For the interested, a great companion piece is Richard Bernstein’s 2009 The East, the West, and Sex, a history of the sexualization of Asia by the West.
