Why Are So Many People Playing Hentai Games At Work

Probably everyone knows by now that I’m a fan of the lewd side of life. But even I was taken aback when Nutaku, a platform for eroge/hentai games, published a report that said 1 in 4 players (27% to be exact) have played a Nutaku game while at work in 2017.

My main question is WHY and how do so many people get away with it?? Do all these people have bosses that don’t pay attention or are they fine with being caught playing an eroge? And for the people who have never been on Nutaku or played an eroge, these games go all the way with graphic sex scenes that have Japanese/English voiceovers that your coworkers could easily hear through your headphones.

But even if people aren’t playing those explicit scenes at work, the characters in Nutaku’s most popular game of 2017, Kamihime PROJECT R, have outfits that would make any boss start filing a report to HR.

 

While questioning if anime fans are just more perverted and love their hentai way more than the average person, I did some searching online and found surprising results. A 2014 survey says that 63% of men and 36% of women have watched porn at work and Nielson reported in 2010 that 29% of working American adults have accessed porn sites while at work. Compared to the 27% of Nutaku users playing at work, hentai fans could be seen as actually more responsible at work than 29% – 63% of the population.

Pornhub’s 2017 insights back up these high workplace viewing habits with nearly half of global Pornhub users visiting the site between 9am-6pm.

 

And oddly enough, hentai is a rising search term on the site.

In fact, it ranks equally high for both men and women!

So while I can’t say for sure why so many people are playing hentai games at work, I can say that they’re not alone. Nutaku’s users were at least slightly less likely than the average to look at their lewd content of choice while at work. But that may change in the future as hentai ranks higher in searches for both men and women. Let’s be honest, plenty of people enjoy hentai, even if they don’t admit it as openly as Samuel L. Jackson.

I've been hooked on sci-fi, gaming, and anime ever since watching Trigun, Outlaw Star, and playing Final Fantasy. I love exploring shows and subjects that have been passed over. Pro-VR, pro-lewd, pro-indie gaming, and anti-censorship. I take about 4 major trips a year to other countries and love to visit the local fan conventions (sci-fi, anime, games, VR) when I can.
