The EOCS adult game censorship regulations imposed in response to feminist criticism have finally been revealed in detail, and it seems they are shockingly draconian, practically banning all pictures and text which stray from the missionary position.
Not just rape and loli are now banned; all group sex, kinkiness and anything else which might cause trouble or offence is banned, whether in pictures or text; it is difficult to characterise such a sweeping ban as anything but a complete victory for opponents of freedom of expression and sexuality.
The full list of what is now completely off limits to adult games published through traditional channels:
(Some terms do not have clear English equivalents)
Enjo Kousai (Prostitution)
The ban covers all pictures, text, packaging and even the names of the publishers themselves.
Euphemisms are also banned, and the list will be added to as required. It seems the only major omission is homosexuality; it is also not clear whether the ban on pregnancy and conception means games must now feature obligatory contraception…
The source is a publisher quoting the EOCS guidelines for the benefit of their own partners, so it is still not a direct announcement, but seems as close to one as can be expected. This also confirms the previous publisher misgivings that a game featuring nekomimi and consensual pregnancy would be banned under the new regulations.
Details of how this may affect publishers and retail channels are covered in the previous articles, suffice to say it seems the retail trade in such games will be undergoing a severe contraction.
With such a spectacular success in censoring so broad an array of deviancy, it seems only a matter of time before a similar assault is launched against anime and manga, to say nothing of the wider pornography industry…
