Hadaka Shitsuji: Naked Butlers, Uncensored Gay Sex Sim Release Highlights Steam’s Double Standards
Hadaka Shitsuiit Naked Butlers

Mada Labo’s Hadaka Shitsuji: Naked Butlers was recently released on Steam by publisher MangaGamer. The hardcore yaoi visual novel features uncut gay sex, among a litany of other perversions and fetishes that Valve apparently thought was completely okay to feature on the Steam store.

The game is about a young man who loses his job, finds a flyer for a mysterious job that offers 30,000 yen a day, and he finds out that it takes place within a mansion whose owner is out of town. The protagonist is tasked with filling in for the owner, and commanding the sexy male butlers around, even to the point of engaging in truly sadistic and perverse acts.

There’s a breakdown of the game’s plot and how it weaves the content into the story, courtesy of YouTuber The Friendly Senpai, which you can check out below.

If you don’t feel like watching the video, the mature content descriptor for this Adults Only game reads as follows…

“This title is not suitable for players under the age of 18 or those who may be sensitive to fictional depictions of the following: workplace sexual harassment, stalking, physical and mental abuse, accidental death, murder, cannibalism, consumption of bodily fluids, and graphic sexual scenes of both a consensual and non-consensual nature between one or more adults featuring unprotected sex, group sex, food, violence, bodily fluids, bondage, domination, erotic asphyxiation, drowning, pet play, beastiality, foreign object insertion, double penetration, fictional drugs, exhibitionism, and crossdressing.”

All of that is rather… extreme.

And if you think that any of the content had to be censored for its release on Steam, think again. Users in the forums asked the developers if they had to cut any scenes out, remove any characters, or change any scenarios similar to other games that had to go through rigorous censorship before being released on Steam, including all-ages versions of games that were already heavily censored like MoeNovel’s If My Heart Had Wings -Flight Diary-. The developer chimed in explaining that, no, they did not censor anything and the game was released on Steam fully uncensored, writing in the forum thread

“The game is fully uncensored and the content is identical to the MangaGamer store’s release. There are no patches needed. Players do have the option to turn mosaics on or off in the menu depending on their preference, however.”

Hadaka Shitsuii - Naked Butlers - Showering Together

Now this is rather significant, because as some of you may know Valve recently banned around a dozen games from the Steam store, including the mystery-thriller Kara no Shojo 2, even though the original game is available on Steam right now.

One of the games was VR Kanojo, which had been available on the Steam store for an entire year and was the all-ages version of the game. Valve, after being alerted of the instance, restored the game back to Steam.

No reason was given by Valve for the bans. Some have argued it was because they featured “underage characters”, others argued it was because Valve is trying to avoid disrupting “obscenity laws”, even though they have games like Hadaka Shitsuji: Naked Butlers on the service, along with games like Hunt and Snare, a hardcore hunting game themed around hunting down other furries, ensnaring them, and raping them.

You can purchase Hunt and Snare from the Steam store for $29.99 right now, along with another hardcore furry sex sim called Dirty Education. So obviously they have no issue at all with selling content that most people would consider to be obscene.

Others have attempted to justify Valve’s banning of certain anime games and visual novels, claiming that the company is trying to avoid getting in trouble with the law by banning games featuring underage characters or “child exploitation”. However, that is proven false with the fact that games like Sweet Pool are still allowed on Steam, which features school boys engaged in sex and cannibalism.

Valve also still has A Hand In The Darkness on Steam, which also features sex between minors, and gay underage rape.

There have been a number of flimsy justifications as to why Valve has seemingly allowed lots of uncensored gay pornography on the store but have been forcing censorship on already censored games, or banning the all-ages versions of games like Hello, Goodbye.

One of Valve’s most egregious banns was the political thriller Victory Project, which not only did not contain school settings or underage characters, but the Steam release had no sexually explicit content at all.

Another notable ban was The Key To Home, which was another game that also had no nudity or sexual content and was rated ‘T’ for Teen by the ESRB but was still banned by Valve… twice.

So far it appears the only game featuring homosexual content that was banned from Steam was Top Hat Studios’ Cross Love – Episode 1, which was a visual novel that played on the trap-culture fetish. Why that game was banned but not Sweet Pool was never explained. A few people also claimed that it was due to pressure from China, but China is vehemently against the promotion of homosexuality in media, as evident with a female yaoi novelist and her cohorts being sentenced for up to 10 years in prison for distributing yaoi content.

Either way, you can now pick up the hardcore, uncensored version of Hadaka Shitsuji: Naked Butlers from the Steam store for $34.99.
