The Best Sex Games for Mac
A roundup of the top sex games Apple users can play right now.
Mac computers are known for quite a few things: ease of use, safety from viruses, integration with other Apple products and, unfortunately, their often high price tag.
But one thing Apple computers are not well known for is gaming, let alone adult gaming. In fact, there is a huge gap in what’s available when you compare offerings for Macs vs. PCs—one which became even more apparent during our research to find the best sex games for Mac. But you’re in luck! If you’re an Apple user hunting for the top titles to play, we’ve compiled a list below to save you time finding them.
Yareel [NSFW] is perfect for those looking for a massively multiplayer sex game for Mac that is also free to play! You can upgrade to the paid version, but it's not necessary to enjoy hot virtual sex with other players.
There is no need to worry about finding a sex partner. The sex game has more than 12,000 active players as well as sexy computer-generated avatars. So you can browse online for someone real to hook up with (and many players use actual photos in their profiles), or romp around with a sexy avatar who is willing to do whatever it is you want—and with some raunchy dirty talk if that's your thing.
What we enjoy about Yareel [NSFW] is that there are plenty of customization options to make your avatar look just the way you want, from clothing type to skin color to genital size. Even better is the amazing selection of sex acts you can enjoy, which include some Dominant/submissive play, various sex positions, as well as delectable poses for steamy orgies.
For a MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online) that’s existed since 2003—ancient history in computer years—Second Life still offers one of the best erotic experiences for any computing platform.
Sure, the graphics might be showing a bit of age, and it does tend to drag unless you are using a state-of-the-art Mac. But Second Life has something that a lot of other games simply don’t: mainly a loyal and passionate fan base.
It’s this fan base that has created a practically infinite number of erotic worlds to explore, from hardcore BDSM dungeons to elegant nightclubs. In addition to these alluring environments, there is an almost equally infinite number of people selling everything from digital bondage gear to frilly ball gowns for your avatar to wear.
As for erotic play, it’s just a matter of acquiring a set of genitals of your choosing—and finding a willing partner. If you want more detail on how to have erotic experiences in Second Life just check out our brief guide here.
What’s even better than this wildly exciting variety of sexual opportunities is that Second Life is free. Sure, some of the bells and whistles for your avatar might cost a few Linden Dollars, the currency of Second Life, but a little digging will usually give you everything you need to have a good erotic time for little or nothing.
A steamy game with juicy queer sensibilities is the browser-based Gay Harem [NSFW]. With an end goal of putting together a hunky gay harem of their very own, users will adventure in a sexy fantasy world jam-packed with practically every gay male icon imaginable: from chiseled muscle men to outrageous mystical beings Gay Harem [NSFW] has them all.
On top of all this, it boasts a great array of game mechanics, including Pokémon-inspired battles between guys, playing pachinko, going out on quests, and lots more.
While it may lack a certain amount of polish when compared to other games, demonstrated by its lack of animation or voice work, Gay Harem [NSFW] is still an engaging and arousing experience for anyone into gay sex games.
You can read our full write-up of the gay sex game in our review, which shares our thoughts on what the game does right and where it could do with some improvement.
Proving that erotic games don’t need explicit graphics, extensive animation, or voiced characters to turn you on, Onyx is a board-game-inspired romp where the goal is to make a profit buying and selling sex-related properties like hot sheet motels, adult product emporiums, nightclubs, and escort services.
The trick, and where the fun lies, is by doing so you run the risk of landing on businesses owned by whoever you’re playing with. Doing so resulting in having to work off your debt by performing certain sexual activities.
While the base game is free, paying for the full, unlocked version of Onyx will spice things up with more explicit content and other bonuses.
While not explicitly erotic, there are quite a few adult-business-sims out there for the Mac that are more than worthy to be included on our list of Mac sex games.
One of the titles that has received the most press, mainly for its subject matter but also its wicked sense of humor, is HunieCam Studio [NSFW]. In this game, currently available on Steam, players take control of a webcam model operation. The goal? To rake in as much cash and as many paying fans as you can.
Putting aside some of the game’s sex-negative language, HunieCam Studio is fun and more than a bit challenging. However, it’s hard to say if that is because of the inherent difficulty of managing sex toy purchases, clinic visits, and sexy outfits for the girls you employ while being aroused or giggling at the eccentricity of it all. Oh, and did we mention that the prizes are rather phallic-shaped trophies? Well, if not then we definitely should have.
Next on our list is another subgenre of game: the dating sim. What makes this title unique, though, is both its focus as well as remarkable popularity. In Dream Daddy [NSFW] (also available on Steam), your goal as a hot dad is to date and get to know—rather intimately if not explicitly—other dads. To put it another way: it’s a charming, and rather playfully erotic, gay dating sim.
What sets this apart from the genre of gay dating sims is its inclusivity. Instead of being idealized queer icons, the cartoonish—yet hot—dads of Dream Daddy come in a staggering array of ages, races, and body types. It’s a challenge not to find at least one of the dads worth wooing.
While Steam may not offer a large selection of adult games, folks who enjoy sexy anime offerings be in luck. A scan of titles with the keyword Ecchi, meaning “playfully sexy,” shows there are several titles that may not be full-blown erotic, but still have a sensual sexiness to them.
What’s also alluring about this category is its wide variety—that is if you like anime girls. For example, Time Tenshi 2 [NSFW] is clearly designed for those who like ample breasts; while Echo Tokyo: Hoshi plays with a cyberpunk aesthetic.
Tasting the apple
While there may not be a plethora of titles, we hope that our recommendation of the best sex games for Mac will encourage you to get out there, explore, and have some satisfying sexual experiences!
Why so few erotic Apple games?
A big reason for the sparse selection of adult games is Mac computers still lag in popularity. Estimates show 52% of people use Microsoft Windows, 21% use Linux-based systems, and 26% use Mac OS X.
Another challenge is distribution. Apple is notoriously uncomfortable with sexually explicit games. For instance, the Apple App Store presently carries only five games that sort of (and that’s stretching it) count as “erotic.” In fact, even Steam, which carries games for all kinds of platforms, won’t carry outright sexually explicit titles.
The lack of sexy erotic games is actually pretty ironic as, back in the wild year of 1986, game designer and digital artist Mike Saenz created MacPlaymate: an extremely explicit erotic Mac game that took the nascent Internet by storm. If you’re curious, you can still try it out. However, you’ll need to install an emulator, like Mini vMac, to will allow your new Mac to run it.
Speaking of emulators, some Apple users have been using others, like PlayonMac and Apple’s own Bootcamp, to run PC games. While some people have reported good results with them, others find their Macs can’t run the game well or at all. Because of this, we’ve focused on best sex games that run as well as possible on Mac computers, without the need for additional software.
RIP, Red Light Center's Mac support
Red Light Center [NSFW] was once first on our list of the best sex games for Mac. Sadly, it no longer offers support for Mac sex game enthusiasts. Its developers suggest Apple users run the game using an emulator.
