It's censored on Steam so that the most you'll see is breasts, which I guess is enough to give it a pass. Still, though, getting the girls in bed is most definitely the main focus.
I had no idea they did that, lol I guess since there is no actual intercourse (i think? Isn't it just a mini game) it isn't porn then? and no graphic bits if they're blurred out or whatever.

I mean, HuniPop IS basically porn. The whole purpose is to get the girls in bed and to disrobe and have sex using the mini game. I'm guessing Steam is like most bookstores - they'll sell erotica, but not porn. What is the difference between the two? Production values. Or, you know, one goes under the bed, the other hangs on the wall.

Being a little bit less facetious, it really comes down to sales. HuniPop was selling like crazy everywhere else. Of COURSE Valve was going to let them sell on Steam, regardless of the content. Valve can't resist getting a cut from popular games.
