A survey of gamer parents confirms that sex is a bigger concern than violence in games.

A poll posted by John Davison's What They Play asked gaming parents an age-old inquiry: Which would you find most offensive in a video game?

The results, not too surprisingly, revealed that thirty seven percent of the voters found a man and woman having sex to be the most offensive option. Two men kissing and a graphically severed head nearly tied with 27 and 26 percent of the vote, respectively.

Controversy surrounding games such as the Hot Coffee debacle and sexual content in Mass Effect make these results, that sex in games concerns parents more than violence, less shocking. Yet still, John Davison wonders on his blog, "Not to keep banging on about this, but W.T.F?"
