X-rated row sees VR games featuring raunchy vids banned from popular gaming app
An adult-only row has erupted over the use of real porn stars appearing in 3D computer games.
Holodexxx, which has spent tens of thousands of dollars making adult titles, is complaining three of its games which feature real life adult actresses are being prevented from being played by randy gamers.
The titles have been banned from the PC app Steam which boasts a library of more than 40,000 games and has a reported 120million monthly active users around the globe.
However, the platform has no apparent problems with other steamy adult content, with bestsellers currently including "Cute Honey 2, Sakura Succubus and Landlord Girls" in its adult content section.
Holodexx, which makes adult virtual reality (VR) games, promises to let fans 'interact' with popular X-rated performers such as Tori Black, who has been voted one of the world's top ten porn stars, and Riley Reid, who has appeared in more than 431 films.
The Sun reports one game, rated "PG-13," features a Riley Reid virtual model experience which has no nudity in it. A second game allows players to "inspect" a digital version of porn star Marley Brinx, while a third lets players undress a fictional character.

The company suggests its games are being banned because they feature depictions of real life people even though "there are dozens of games on Steam featuring real life mass murderers, but adult film stars are the real threat."
In a blog post, a spokesman for Holodexxx said: " We thought that if we submitted multiple applications through Steam, we would be able to suss out their internal rules surrounding 'pornography' and adult content in general.It doesn’t feel like there are any set-in-stone rules surrounding adult content; and if there is, we were not any closer to understanding what they are."
"What we do know, is that Steam dislikes depictions of real-life sex workers on Steam, which, frankly, we do not understand."
In a tweet on May 8, the company added: "Someone explain it to us, because Steam won't."
