Get On Your Knees...

I came across this weird, yet interesting game called Hurt Me Plenty. Developed by Robert Yang, an indie game developer based in New York, Hurt Me Plenty is a game designed to challenge such simplistic views to interactive sex. It places the player (me) in the dominant role of a BDSM relationship, allowing you to spank the heck out of a beefy, hairy hunk until he says a safe word. Unfortunately, I missed the whole safe word thing, in which I supposed to stop, and continued to spank him vigourously back and forth until all of a sudden he collapsed...

Now, here's what the game surprised me. I thought I'd reach a credits screen and the game would be over and asked to play again. Instead, this beefcake sat with his back to me. I was instructed to use the mouse to rub his back and comfort him. For a moment I felt a surge of guilt within me as he pointed out that he'd said the safe word 14 times! Honestly, I wasn't really paying attention to that, but 14 felt monstrous.

Moments later, a countdown timer came onto the screen. I learned that I'd been locked out of the game for 14 days as a cool-off period in our relationship, in which my 'partner' exerted his rights to no longer deal with me :(

What I like about Hurt Me Plenty is the unspoken message behind it, even in this simplistic, three-scene game, is the implication that sex can emotionally hurt someone, even when you think you are just having fun. And now look who is being punished? Moi, and I'm sorry.

Well that's some game, alright. :) Don't think it's for me since I'm into clean, pretty boring stuff.
