Since Phone Sex Exists, Why Not Xbox Live Sex?

GameCrush, a service that lets gamers pay to play online with women, goes live today, IGN reports. You sign up, scan through hundreds of profiles, set up a “play date” and see where the pixels take you.

From the IGN story:

You must be 18 or over to create a GameCrush account — it’s being touted as the first social site for adult gamers. It’s not an explicitly explicit service, but PlayDates set their gaming mood to either “flirty” or “dirty.” What the two of you chat about is entirely up to you. Signing up is free, but you must purchase credits in order to get your game on. For $8.25 you get 500 credits, which is enough for one game (400 credits) and a 100 credit tip at the end.

An Xbox Live game will last 10 minutes, while a casual Flash game will get you six minutes of face time with your PlayDate. That’s literal face time, because you can video chat with your lady while playing a casual Flash game. Again, what goes on in that video chat is up to you and your PlayDate. GameCrush says it modeled its pricing structure after the cost of buying a girl a drink at a bar. In a bar, you’re basically buying the opportunity to chat a girl up. GameCrush is hoping players will look at their service the same way.

The existence of GameCrush, and the fact that there could be a market for something like this, is simultaneously pathetic and awesome. I guess anything that creates jobs in this economy is a positive. Your thoughts?
