Big Bang Age:

Using ccoa's guidelines, I can give more detailed information.

  • When are the sex scenes located?: Multiple points. There is a sex scene with the heroines at the start of some turns and sub heroines also have optional sex scenes at points as you clear character events
    • Are they spread out over the game?: Yes
      • How much gameplay is there between sex scenes? : Quite a lot. In fact, there are few scenes that you are actually required to see. You generally have to go out of your way to see them.
    • Are they only at the endings?: No. In fact, at the actual endings the story has turned too dramatic for any sex to appear.
      • How hard do you have to work to get an ending?: The gameplay involved takes hours. If you don't skip the text, the game requires days to complete. If you do, it still takes days, really.
      • Are they in every ending? Every good ending? : I think the sex scenes are largely optional in pursuit of an ending. During the endings themselves there is no sex. That said, you will choose to see the scenes because otherwise your time is too limited. The other method of getting points towards an ending would take too long.
  • Are the sex scenes optional via a choice in the menu?: No. If you trigger certain events you'll see sex scenes with no way to avoid them.
  • Would the story make sense without them with minimal or no rewriting?: Hmmm it's tough to say. You'd have to do some rewrites to the main character's personality, but the plot itself could largely go unchanged. While the main character likes to have sex a lot, the story is actually about him trying to return his girlfriend to normal (as I said before, she's cursed) and close up a portal to hell.
  • Are the scenes made up of stills, or are they animated?: Stills.
  • How explicit are the sex scenes? : Genital contact. As noted, there is some underaged looking content between teenagers. There is no rape that is not played for drama and I don't think it's supposed to be titillating. Pretty unpleasant, really.

Personally, I'd suggest a Bleached Underpants version of the article. That would mean removing the references to the pornographic elements, correct? There shouldn't be that many on the page anyway.

Can confirm what Arha has said, for the most part.

As I recall it, there are quite a few non-consensual (I'm just pretending to be more sophisticated than I really am, here, not trying to downplay rape or anything) scenes, but as I understand it absolutely none are ever committed by the protagonist, who shows nothing but outright disgust for it, and any and all perpetrators are portrayed in a very unsympathetic light (with a possible exception of a character who earns his redemption, and he still isn't very well trusted for it).

Incidentally, how exactly are Francine and Tamarin (?, probably typoed that) shown as? Sympathetic, or otherwise? I never actually got around to clearing either of them, so I'm afraid I'm unsure of exactly what happens.

For those unaware, Francine and Tamarin are the games token Shotacon/Lolicon party members.

Actually, that reminds me - doesn't visiting Francine (which by all likelihood is going to happen) present a CP scene without the player exactly being aware it's going to happen? Pretty uncertain here, so take it with a grain of salt, it's been a while and I've already made one stupid mistake.
 
Neither of those two is sympathetic. They're creeps. As for that scene you're talking about, I don't think so. She's called a shotacon, but she seems to actually just go for skinny pretty boys, not actual children.

Wait, no, she goes for that one kid from Yokohama but we don't see that.

After further research, watching some videos and reading reviews, I've come to a decision. That image I posted just reeks too much of pedoshit to me. I voted devil-head.

Direct any other defense to the other guys, I'm not changing my vote.

That there is an option for explicit sex scenes with Shion and Kinako makes the decision to remove the page pretty clear cut, in my opinion.

If not for that, the argument that the plot and gameplay significantly outweigh the porn content would probably be enough to justify keeping it. There's just no getting past the apparent pedo-pandering here, though.

If I'm misunderstanding the situation involving these characters, please correct me.

Yeah, I'm gonna have to side with Meeble on this one. There's just no way I can get around that apparent pedo-pandering issue.
^^ You're basically correct. Kinako and Sion are rather minor characters, but you do have the option to sleep with them and h scenes can't be turned off. They're minor to the point that I wasn't really sure it justified an outright cut instead of just cleanup and locking*, but I'm not really going to argue the issue too much.

Okay, so far, this work page has acquired two devilheads and one angelhead. Now, assuming I'm gonna pick the devilhead for my vote, what should we do with this page?

Based on the pedo-content, I'm saying cut.

It's been devil-headed to death. Lock-hollering.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
