Rolling Stone: Morality in Media Group Calls Out Steam For Sexual Exploitation Through Games

Steam, Valve’s online video game community and store, is listed as one of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation’s “Dirty Dozen” porn facilitators for its sale of what the group, formerly known as Morality in the Media, describes as  “pornographic and sexually exploitive videogames”

In a letter to Valve founder Gabe Newell, the group is asking the company to remove the games House Party and Porno Studio Tycoonfrom Steam because it believes they “promote the dangerous misconception that sexually exploiting others is harmless and fun.” It’s also asking Steam to create an 18-plus category and enforce a more robust policy against selling games that “normalize or glamorize sexual exploitation in the future.”

Glixel reached out to Valve for comment and will update this story when they respond.
