"Ew ew ew. Ensign Games has just released a new game, DreamStripper 3D, where you 'totally control the dancer,'" writes Jessica. "Just check out this lovely language from Ensign’s press release:

You decide how she dances, what she wears, even the music she dances to! Have her writhe or spin just when and how you want or create an erotic and exotic dance program. You are in control...Total Control mode allows you to customize all the outfits without playing the stripper game.

Total Control mode? This press release sounds like a love letter to stalkers and abusers, not video game players. Can’t make your girlfriend do whatever you want? Don’t worry, you can take out your freakish controlling behavior on a virtual woman! You can even take her hard-earned money!

So disturbing." (Feministing)
