Color absolutely no one surprised. HappyPlayTime, an educational tool of sorts for women, has been rejected by the App Store, on the grounds that "the concept is not something that Apple wants to go forward with." Not too big of a shocker, but developer Tina Gong isn't exactly blindsided by the decision.
"I knew I was taking a chance with building the game natively but I was optimistic, as our app was created with a mission and with the best of intentions," says Gong, who created the game in an attempt to transcend the taboos surrounding female masturbation. Believe it or not, some women just don't know their way around down there as well as they'd like, and that definitely needs to change.
Unfortunately, it won't be allowed to flourish on the App Store to reach the women who might actually want to use it. There probably isn't much chance of it hitting the Google Play Store either, for that matter, but Gong is hoping to release the game as a browser version or as an Android game in the near future. Sexy times for all, I say!
