Ack I didn't think I'd need help from this place again. No offence to the people who hangs around here.

Ok to the point. I bought my cousin(she's only 9 years old but almost 10) a harmless PC game(at least I thought it was harmless), while we were on vacation in China. When we came back we started playing it. It turned out the game contains sexual theme. Well there's this scene where the main character has sex with this girl. Well actually you don't see anything really, just 2 images, and it's definitly not porno or hentai. Of course my cousin asked me what are they doing and I was like "er... they're er... clothes got dirty so they had take them off and send it to the dry cleaners. Since they don't have any other clothes with them they had to cover them selfs with the bed sheets." Ok I know that was really lame explaination. I don't want the little squirt exposed to such er... stuff. What should I do? Take the game away from her? Can't really do that cause I bought it for her so it belongs to her. That'll make me look like a bully. Can't refund unless I get a plane ticket. I'm not sure what I should do. I thought it was a harmless little strategy RPG. Oh by the way she picked out the game herself, and there's no ratings system on it.

Why don't you let her parents decide what to do? Not only is it really their place, and not yours, they also will be better to explain the why of it to her, as well as make the decision for what is best for their household.

It might be a good idea to let them know ASAP the game has sexual content. Some parents feel very strongly about that.

And hey, not everyone just comes here for help. You'd be amazed how many posters come *to* help.

If you really have to lie about it, maybe tell her they were very, very tired. That's what my cousins used to tell me.

I never questioned why they went to sleep naked, though. i assumed their pajamas were in the wash or something

Yeah Miz Scarlet, I know it's not really my place but if this gets out, I'm ruined. What will my relatives think... Heck what would mom and dad think. They'll think I'm the one exposing her to this stuff! Well maybe not, since I'm the guy that checks her Hallween candy every year with a metal detector(my aunt works at an airport), so they know I'm protective. Still it's not go for my ego and pride.

Oh and "ThisGuy" if want free drinks, I can break you in half so you can drink the blood you spilled!!!! If you're not here to help then go away!!!

To be really plain with you, you ARE the one who provided it, and frankly, if you can't make decisions beyond your own ego and pride I don't think it's such a great idea you're hanging out with young children at all.

Be responsible, for crying out loud. This is a kid we're talking about. I'm sorry, but this sort of response makes me completely livid. You asked what to do and we told you. Don't think for a minute anyone here is going to enable you to act so irresponsibly.

And as an aside, don't be rude to other posters like you were to ThisGuy. That isn't acceptable here, and you'd be advised to review the registration rules. No one here exists solely to help you with your dilemmas, and he's allowed to make a joke now and then.

LOL I can't believe it. I should of mention this before but I have a bad habit of leaving words out or mispelling the. "Still it's not go for my ego and pride." This is the first time I left out half a sentence. What I meant to say was... "It's not good(notice I spelled good as go?) for my ego and pride if the little squirt goes down the wrong path. It would be all my fault." I swear staying up till 3 am to finish research papers are no fun and messes me up. I also found the answer. It was just too simple that I over looked it. Just buy her some new Pokemon game and trade her for the other game.
