Since MK9 is kind of campy and silly at times, there wouldn't be any harm in seeing a boob from time to time, IF you had the OPTION turned on. (Just like a gore OPTION can be turned ON/OFF.)

Heavy Rain and LA Noire have raised the bar in what we can expect from realistic portrayals of humans in video games, so just wait until the next consoles come out before you make up your mind on this issue!

I think sex in MK is stupid in the way that it's currently portrayed. After every match, Sonya's gigantic boobs are falling out of her shirt that's been torn to shreds. She's special forces, and she's basically completely unprotected.

Jade is more concerned about being a stripper than fighting.

Sindel is old and her boobs are hanging out.

Sheeva has no clothes and touches herself for a victory pose. When she's in "armor" for her alt costume, she still has no clothes.

Kitana just got out of bed.

Mileena is a slut, moans, and touches herself for victory poses.

All of these things actually hurt to break immersion in MK, imo.

If you just get jumped by a ninja you're not going to take the time to do a stripper dance, you're going to freak out wondering if you're going to get jumped again. Their objectification sucks, and doesn't' work well for MK. I don't want them being objectified anymore than I want subzero to take out his ice penis.
Mortal Kombat is rated E for Everyone.

Again: just no.

I read some comments/opinions of people saying "why the double standard with sex" or "why going around it" or whatever and I just can't fully understand how it applies to this subject/discussion (MK).

I understand making games feel more realistic and whatever, but, sex would only be an addition for fun. And I'm pretty sure it would look as corny, as stupid, and as unnecessary as it does in almost every other game.

No need to see our MK heroes/villains preparing/shooting for the act.

Its not about having a double standard, not at all.

I sincerely think it would look stupid (even more stupid than Sonya not having a shirt under her sexy vest).

I think nudity wouldn't necessarily be an issue if Mortal Kombat was more serious in tone and realism.
However, the game is currently like the wet dream of a 13 yr old kid.
Its not exactly teeming with class.
If the game kept physical proportions realistic and mature, it wouldn't be so objectifying.
For a rated M game its a few pints short on maturity.

It's an American thing. Sexuality is verboten, but no amount of violence is considered excessive.

It is kinda pathetic how the developers treated this subject.

All their big talk about making the goriest adult game ever, and then tiptoeing around at Pg-rated territory when it comes to nudity. It's amazingly childish.

Making Mileenas naked costume actually naked would have been fine, in my opinion. Or making it possible to strip character down with battle damage.

Sex doesn't fit into the military-industrial complex equation, I'm afraid.

Wouldn't sex lead to more soldiers in the long run?

Maybe they're just offended because they realize you have no idea how to spend your free time? lol. Everyone has already hit the proverbial nail on the head. In the US of A: Violence = Good! :D Sex = Bad! :(
But, this game guys? There are tits everywhere. You need to see those virtual nips? Really?

I don't think that sex in MK is taboo so much as it is unnecessary. Granted, I understand the logic of "I can tear some dude's intestines out, what's wrong with the occasional breast?" But does incorporating sex into the series either through plot or through the fabled 'sex-alities' really augment the core of saving the universe via magic kung-fu? Meaning, are you more likely to enjoy the plot if you get to see some Sonya / Johnny action? Are you more likely to play as Kung Lao if he rapes his opponent after a victory? I wouldn't, but hey. I'm one of those annoying Americans (shudder) peeps in this thread keep going on about.

I think the campiness of story mode offsets the violence of MK, but honestly, I think Dead of Alive will be the first fighting game to actually show boobs someday.

Is this really an issue worth 3 pages? MK was never about sex its history. It's all about the blood and gore. If anything it should be even more gorier and gruesome. This is MK.

Not sex-related to fulfill a kids fantasy. There's other games for that if you want to jerk off too. MK isn't it. If you want to imagine and draw what a naked character looks like, go ahead. Boon probably made the flesh pit outfit just to tease people who've always wanted to see a video game character naked. It's just a childish dream at the end of the day.

My question is when was cursing taboo in MK?
I was expecting all my favorite four letter words and then some in this installment.

Mortal Kombat is a fantasy video game, so any sexual content doesn't bother me at all. In fact, it should be expected at this day and age, as video games have been pushing the boundaries for quite some time.

Mortal Kombat is quite toned down in that regard, especially compared to other games such as God of War 3, for example.

Blame religion for that.

In religion people are born with clothes on their body, seeing a naked natural body is a pure sin...

Pathetic.

That's not polite, it's ignorant, and your mockery is unnecessary.

Can you please keep it clean and not turn this thread's discussion into something that its not? Otherwise you will get in trouble for your remarks.

This has nothing to do with religion. I'm not religious myself and I don't agree with sex in Mortal Kombat.

The only reason this idea is brought up is because someone likes sex(or wanting to fulfill a fantasy sex) and likes Mortal Kombat. Putting two together = double orgasm to them. MK is a fantasy game sure, but it never was a dark-sexual fantasy game. Don't change it to something it clearly wasn't meant to be because you think the idea is interesting to appeal to your desires.

There's already kids asking the original poster for the pics. Kids. I'm surprised mods let this slip by.

Sex never existed in MK. Scantily clad women have. It's that simple. There's other games out their to fulfill sex in video games. Play those if you want to see virtual boobies and pussy.

Overall I rate this thread 2/10. It's pretty shitty but I've seen worse.

Good day.

There's the problem. Violence is okay for kids, but nudity isn't.

I agree with Temp,Queve, and Ice on this and all I'm going to say is the sex versus violence thing has nothing to do with American taboos or social conventions.

I dunno, MK: Conquest looked for reasons to have implied sexual relations between the different characters. :P

Mileena seduced Kung Lao, Quan Chi pimped his 3 Assassins, Shang Tsung macked Vorpex, sometimes implied lesbian overtones with that fortune-teller and her assistant.

But I digress, that was a late-night show. :P
