Sex minigames have become a sort of tradition in God of War games; ever since Kratos's infamous encounter with two women in the first game, it's become expected, even mandatory, that he get it on with at least two chicks in every game he stars in. For a little while, though, it looked as though God of War III was going to do away with the concept entirely – and as we played through the game for our review with no simulated offscreen sex in sight, our fears grew that maybe it had.
Luckily, we were wrong. While it happens late in the game, God of War III features not only a button-mashing sex minigame, but one starring no less notable a figure than Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love.

Better still, while previous sex scenes took your eyes off the action to focus on a rocking vase...
Or a peeing statue...
Or a faintly suggestive candlestick...
God of War III lets you watch Aphrodite's half-naked handmaidens as they gaze longingly (and more than a little melodramatically) at their mistress and Kratos doing things the ESRB thinks are best left to the imagination.

Although we can't embed the uncensored videos in our own player due to various policies too boring to describe here, GameTrailers is under no such restrictions. To see the very NSFW action for yourself, check out the video below:
And if you're curious to see what happens when Kratos fails to please Aphrodite, here's the anticlimax in all its anti-glory:
