The Holodexxx developer said: “The future of adult entertainment is photo-realistic adult stars in virtual reality.” The company will film based on 3D scanned models of adult movie stars “and brings them to life using the latest in chatbot technology.”
As the Holodexxx developers explained in a recent blog post, after being rejected three times the Last year, they stopped trying to sell their vision on the “future of adult entertainment” on Steam.
First, Holodexxx featured a non-nudity “PG-13 experience”, in which a virtual model of actor Riley Reid “performed a sensual dance”, while other videos of scanned models played in the background. But were rejected by Steam saying video pornography is not allowed on Steam.
Holodexxx then sent Meet Marley to give users a chance to check out the nude 3D model based on adult artist Marley Brinx. After being rejected, they asked Valve submission team for further instructions, asking for “a brief overview of what Steam allows, considering our content.” They did not receive anything, but were told that Valve “will judge our next app when they receive it.”
Finally, Holodexxx sent Holodexxx Home believing that the problem may be that “adult content on Steam requires a story / game” and therefore included interactive elements. Players use the chatbot dialogue system to speak with Lady Euphoria, the character played by Marley Brinx, which ultimately led to the demonstration of Holodexxx’s sexual content. “Euphoria is undressed by the Player through a series of VR interactions, and teases herself to a climax.”
After waiting a few weeks and submitting several help tickets, Holodexxx’s latest offer was also rejected and again explained as “Steam does not allow ‘pornography’ on their platform.”
As Holodexxx’s developer explains, “After another back and forth with the review team, we were no closer to understanding what Steam’s policy was when it came to ‘pornography’ or even how they define pornography. The gist of it was that reviewers ‘knew pornography when they saw it,’ and would not further define the nature of their decision making process.”
