XXX game empowers women?

From gaming blog Kotaku:

Wired’s Sex Drive has a short review
of porn star Jenna Jameson’s new game up. xStream3D Multimedia VirtuallyJenna sounds about as original as its name. Basically, you get to play around with a virtual dummy of Jenna Jameson that looks like some creepy plastic corpse in the screen shots. Regina Lynn writes that you can dress Jenna up and pose her and then plunge a variety of tools into her to try and get her to achieve climax. That’s the whole game. Lynn was able to get Jenna to moan a whole bunch and say she was almost there, but never landed the big O. xStream3D president says the thing is a game and that it empowers women.
The world is ready for something like this. In games like Grand Theft Auto, the women are not empowered, they’re kind of secondary citizens and have low-class roles In this game, the women are the stars. They’re powerful.
And I’m sure that’s exactly what all of the pantless men playing the game one handed will be thinking. For me, this game has all of the appeal of making sweet love to a wax dummy.

I’m glad to know not everyone thinks this game is a great idea. Ew. But I love the company pres. trying to convince folks that the game actually empowers women. Cause what’s more revolutionary and powerful than being a virtual dummy that gets penetrated?
Thanks to Roger for the link.

    The game could only possibly be considered “empowering” if you were Jenna Jameson, and not the guy trying to bone her. Then again, were any women empowered by Metroid or Lara Croft?

    The only thing I can think is that they think it’s empowering for women to get to have orgasms, too. Which of course, is just sad and weak.
    That said–I firmly believe that masturbatory aids like this wouldn’t matter so much if women had real equality. As it stands now, real human beings get treated like toys. If that weren’t so, this wouldn’t be so offensive.

    Why doesn’t it surprise me that the gamer was not able to get her to orgasm? Men or women who think this is empowering can hardly be expected to be good in the sack. ha.
    also, ew. What’s next: BlowJob 5000? Whatever it is, it isn’t empowerment, and it doesn’t deseve to be considered a real game.
