Spanking And Massaging To Get Out Of Hell

Spanking And Massaging To Get Out Of Hell

Just when you thought the makers of video games couldn’t sink any lower, here comes “Criminal Girls,”  a PSP (Play Station Portable) game created by Japanese developer Nippon Ichi Software.

Meet The Spankable Ladies

In this game, the player is in the role of Prison Warden in an all-female prison known as the Tower of Hell. The prison holds seven attractive, nearly-naked women, each one representing one of the seven deadly sins. These females have been banished to hell, and it is your job as warden to get them to the top of the 832-floor tower by “rehabilitating” them, so that they can come back to life.

How do you do that? Conventional methods will not work; you need to use sexual methods such as spanking and massaging to punish these “naughty” women. In case you want more details, here’s a glimpse of our sinful females:

The (Female) Seven Deadly Sins

Tomoe is guilty of extravagance. She seems quite natural, gentle and composed, but men will apparently fall for her sexy charms without knowing it.

Arisu’s crime is heresy. She can see things that can’t be seen and hear things that shouldn’t be bearable.

Kisaragi is greedy. She places great emphasis on the price and value of things, and will ask repeated questions about these areas.

And if you want to see what these creatures look like, you can click on the game’s official site. Release in Japan is scheduled for November, 2010.

Women Still Unequal

Women have made great strides towards equality, but there are still huge discrepancies. Women in the U.S. still earned only 77 cents on the male dollar in 2008, according to the latest census statistics. Why has it taken so long? Nearly half a century after it became illegal to pay women less on the basis of their sex, why do American women still earn less than men?

And why, in 2010, do we need games like “Criminal Girls” to perpetuate female/male inequalities? The sexual objectification of women has been going on for a long time, and is certainly not limited to Japan, but why do we need a game resurrecting those tired, worn-out female stereotypes? As a teacher of teenage girls, I see every day the struggles of young women to become strong and confident, in the face of the barrage of media images that surround them. As a step in the right direction, The New York Times on Sunday featured a report on Girlworld, a summer camp designed to help teenagers develop self-confidence.

By contrast, games like “Criminal Girls” are morally reprehensible and should not be tolerated.

In a perfect world, sencoring should not be necessary. Unfortunately, we do not live in a perfect world.
Why don't they make these video games with men being the prisoners and females the wardens?
I'll tell you why. They would not sell half the number of games because it is easier to bully girls than boys. Or should that be females as opposed to males.

I am against censoring. People should be taught not to appreciate such things & to know what is wrong with it. But censoring it is wrong - next we'll be censoring girls in bikinis on Sports Illustrated.

What do you expect from a world that is full of SIN and EVIL?

this is nonsense

Unbelievable garbage out there!

This game is wrong on so many levels.

These sickly looking characters are boring, over-done and again booooring!

That style of drawing has been chewed to death. Nevermind the stories: they are as per usual brainless and if someone finds them sexy or alluring I am accusing them of missing several screws upstairs.

Japan creates an extreme amount of media which depicts females as sexual objects, helpless & at the mercy of one or more men. The females are typically child-like or cartoonish characters, always nude or near so, tied up with extremities in contorted positions. They make lots of money selling male superiority themed videos & games.the cartoon characters attract little kids who, begin playing innocent games on their websites & quickly link into porn which is highly offensive & abusive to women. The people putting this crap out there don't give a damn about women or children. It is scarey!

I say we get the word out here about this game & boycott the product. I'd like to send a message to the creator saying that his fantasies need to stay with him in his bathroom. Women have struggled too long to tolerate more of this junk. We have tons & tons of media which exploits the female & perpetuates the myth that this is her whole worth. We definitely don't need to import foreign countries depiction of ways to exploit us. Sexuality is welcome, disciplining naked women for sport is not.

I don't believe in any type of censorship. This is where you use your common sense and your own dollars. This is where you put the word out, like this article has done, and you make sure that people are aware of it so that they DON'T purchase it. This is where you talk to your children and let them know why this is not a good game to have or want. The only real way to stop this kind of thing is by not purchasing it.

I think that such videos should be censored or restricted. Apart from that, I went to the page to see these characters. The "girls" look like cartoon characters. Unless I have missed something, they do not look like real people at all. Admittedly, I do not speak or understand Japanese, but the voices sound like those of children, not women.

That, however, presents yet another, separate issue. If this "game" engenders the physical abuse of young girls, it is even more reprehensible. Further, why must there be violence in ANY video games? Don't we have enough of it in real life, already? I guess that profit dictates production. But, also does marketability. If there were no market for this, there would be no such product. We have only ourselves to blame when things like this become available.
