Description of Sex Olympics
From C.E. Forman's description of Free Spirit's horrendous adult adventure games:
"Free Spirit Software published a number of adult text adventure games for PC and possibly other platforms. All of their titles (with the exception of The Last Inca, which was G-rated) featured intergalactic hero "Brad Stallion" and his ship, the "Big Thruster".
They're all pretty much rip-offs of Infocom's Leather Goddesses of Phobos, but distinctly aimed at male players (unlike LGoP, which allowed you to choose your gender) and minus Steve Meretzky's wit. These were not sold in family-oriented software stores and are quite difficult to come by."
Fortunately, Free Spirit finally realized how stupid their parser is, and replaced it with icon-based interface for the third and final game, Sex Olympics, in which you participate in Sex Olympics tournament. The point-and-click interface makes the game a bit more tolerable (since you no longer need to guess the verb), thereby elevating it above the Real Dog status of the first two games, although it's still pretty bad.
Some of the command icons are "screw," "jerk off" (no, I'm not kidding-- it apparently is not needed to win the game either, just to show you more of the game's cheap writing), and "kiss." 'Nuff said. One good idea is that you can recruit women to follow you around, although they serve no real purpose other than being the object for "screw" command.
To add insult to injury, the entire Brad Stallion trilogy has very atrocious writing (which urges you, Brad Stallion, to have sex with women whenever it possibly can), inane puzzles, and very "cheap" use of sex as an excuse for a game.
Overall, these are games that reaffirm my opinion that whoever plays games to see "adult situations" should visit porn sites instead of torturing themselves in front of the computer screen. Stay away from these games as far as you can-- or download them if you're a die-hard collector like me, and ignore them for the rest of your life.

'Sex Olympics' is more fun than the bound-up reviewer thinks and is actually a contest for the hero to win over more ladies than the villain. To do this he must travel to different planets and have the right equipment to accomplish the task, otherwise he cops a fail. The "jerk-off" command is needed for one place, and elsewhere Brad must also choose whether to bed a sheep or leave well-enough alone. Some of the mazes are pretty tough, one is in darkness, but you don't need to get all the ladies, just the highest score. It's possible to block off the bad guy sometimes and there are numerous objects lying about that will come in handy. There can be an occasional glitch in the "Beach" scenario, and Brad is sure to get lost at some stage in one of the annoying mazes - you don't know where you are because you don't know where you've been. Fortunately there are usually hints available for in-game encounters.
