Masturbation games are a no-no on Apple’s App Store, apparently

HappyPlayTime is an instructional game which teaches women how to masturbate, something every human being does whether they will publicly admit it or not.

According to the game’s designer Tina Gong, Apple rejected the iOS game because it was “not something that Apple wants to go forward with.”

“I knew I was taking a chance with building the game natively but I was optimistic, as our app was created with a mission and with the best of intentions,” said Gong, who had hoped the sex-education game would help dispel taboos regarding female fiddling.

Gong said she considered pressing the issue by starting a petition, but felt it would be “a waste of energy to argue with them.”

HappyPlayTime is still in development for Android, and should Google reject it as well, interested parties will be able to play the web-based browser version once development is completed.
