Virgins and Whores in "Rayman: Origins"

Posted by Cha

Rayman: Origins has many unlockable characters, but they are all re-skins of three basic body types: Rayman himself, the large toad Globox, and the Teensies.

These are all male characters, at least to begin with. In case I was in danger of forgetting it the game soon sets about aggressively gendering its female characters.

First up we have the nymphs, representing the sexy-damsel-in-distress contingent. And when I say sexy I mean extreme sexualisation, especially by the standards of kids' games. They have heavily exaggerated features and revealing clothing. After rescuing the nymphs from cramped cages they pose to seductive music and grant new powers.
