Romance and Sexuality

Welcome to the IGDA Romance and Sexuality SIG, a multi-disciplinary group focused on discussing romance, sex, and sexuality in games. Inspired by the original Sex in Games SIG, our aim is to provide a safe, welcoming, and informative space to learn and talk about every aspect of relationships and sex in games… from portrayals of loving relationships to depictions of “fanservice” and sex appeal, from thematic game mechanics to the markets for romance or erotic games, and everything in-between.

We welcome professional and aspiring game developers of every kind and anyone interested in how games can explore and evoke romantic love, sexual desire, or both! We are dedicated to promoting romance and sex in games in ways that are respectful and inclusive to people of all genders and sexualities.
