Gay Sex In Dragon Age: Origins
~or~
Gay Rights For RPG Avatars

Videogamers have discovered that it is possible to have hot gay sex in the newest Bioware RPG Dragon Age: Origins

The video game isn't something your uncle built for your Dos Program, Dragon Age is the next blockbuster from a developer known to churn out epic games for most major consoles and the PC.

While this is a triumph for fans of the modern RPG, it is also a small victory for me, as I have always maintained that my video game avatar should be able to have sex with virtual male elves.

I don't spend an hour fine-tuning the size of a nose for my avatar only to have him be rejected by all the other males in the story. I want for the main character in a videogame to have awkward sexual encounters the same as heterosexuals do!

This is a monumental step in our culture. We have been banned from having our male game protagonists cavort with other men. Recently games like The Sims or Bully broke new ground with having things resembling males getting on with other things resembling males, but here we have what is clearly hardcore sexual relations between two guys who look like they're on steroids.

And this isn't about identity politics, it is about the opening up a plethora of MORE options for people to have fun within a game. Do you have any idea how many times I've role played as an angry lesbian in a video game.....TWICE (and that is one too many).

The angry lesbian avatars have been able to partake in forbidden romance AND wage war, the only downside to the gay male encounters in Dragon Age is that no wars will be waged because one will be too busy screwing the virtual elf (and all of a sudden I believe "screwing the virtual elf" should be a great euphemism for an action that I have not yet defined).
