Order Sought to Halt Sale of Children’s Porn Game
The Society has made an application for an interim restriction order to stop all further "supply" to the public of a controversial computer game that allows thousands of children to practice interactive pornography. The game which the society does not wish to identify by name (it does not wish to assist sales of state-sanctioned "smut") has been widely promoted and sold through leading retail stores in New Zealand. It teaches players to take on the persona of a well known promiscuous and geriatric male pornographer in order to set up a porn empire, by learning to recruit "sexy" women for nude centre-fold photo-shoots, arranging multiple "sexual" encounters in party environments where semi-nude female models and their clients get drunk, and selecting the locations where "sex" is to take place. The player can manipulate the environment to ensure that certain types of "sexual" encounters can take place.
