Now, A Game Lets Kids Give Out Virtual Condoms

London: An online game titled, My Minx,that allows young girls to give contraceptives and morning-after pills to their online avatars and adopt children is raising eyebrows in Britain.
Players dress their "virtual minxes" in lingerie and other revealing clothes and can buy orphans named after the adopted children of celebrities including Madonna and Ewan McGregor.

The adoption clinic in a virtual Style City includes children called Pax, Maddox and Zahara, after Angelina Jolie’s children.

These children have the same ages and nationalities as Jolie’s, with the three-yearold Maddox, said to be Cambodian and fond of eating cockroaches.

The five-year-old Vietnamese Pax is called a fan of noodles, and four-year-old Zahara from Ethiopia is called a guinea pig eater.

Once the adoption fee is paid, players give their new children designer gear and try and sell image rights for them to celeb mags.

Players are challenged to outdo rival "minxes" by hoarding more adoptive children.

The game also allows players take their minxes binge drinking and clubbing as they try to seduce men.

Minxes, who succeed in one night stands, have access to virtual condoms and morning after pills.

Gamers can design their own lingerie brands and handbag ranges as they play to create the most stylish minx.

There is no age restriction on the game and players running out of virtual cash can top up their accounts by sending text messages costing £1.50 each.

My Minx was unveiled shortly before Christmas and has already boasts of 20,000 members as young as seven.

However, the game has come under fire from parents" groups. "There are more than enough pressures on children to grow up already.

We don’t need any more," the Telegraph quoted Andy Hibberd, spokesman for parents’ rights group Parentkind, as saying.

Christopher Brown, head of Londonbased Blighty Arts, the creator of the game said the game is pure entertainment.

He said, "It is nonsense to suggest our game is a bad influence on young children.

We try to protect children too much from the real world for too long in this day and age. They cannot be wrapped up in cotton wool."
