18+ nudity male genitalia

I can't rate this any higher as it is super graphic and quite a dark topic. I felt embarrassed playing this in a family home. If someone walks in they could very easily see male genitalia. I turned it off as this began a within a minute in. I'm 36 years old and I don't have children and I don't think a video game needs such things. I wish there was an option to bleep out the swear words too. I don't know what else occurs in the game as I didn't stick around long enough to find out but I imagine it could have very upsetting content.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
age 18+

Graphic Male Nudity

Why on earth would they put graphic male nudity in a public video game? Do they really need to show mans penis in a video game, that will probably have children wanting to play this game? How is that necessary in any way? I would give this game a negative nothing and shame on the creators for distributing something like this. That could have easily been left out.
