Trivia:
!) The player (playing a down-on-his-luck party animal) searches for certain items that will allow him to win the affections of three beautiful (and sometimes not-so-beautiful) women. Creator Benton claimed that parts of the game were based on his own life.
2) Years later, Softporn Adventure inspired the "Leisure Suit Larry" series of adult-oriented videogames, and the first entry in that series, 1987's "Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards", was a nearly direct graphical adaptation of Softporn Adventure.
3) Neighbors disliked the game's erotic content, and the company received hate mails.
4) Customers asked for a version for women, but Benton could not find a female collaborator.
5) Ken Williams, On-Line Systems' founder, swears that at a time when Apple had only sold 100,000 Apple II computers, Sierra had sold 25,000 copies of Softporn Adventure. Softporn Adventure was probably played by the highest percentage of computer owners of any game in history.
6) The game's cover features three nude women and a male waiter in a hot tub. The hot tub is actually that of On-Line Systems' owners Ken and Roberta Williams. From left to right, the first woman is Diane Siegel, On-Line's production manager. The second is Susan Davis, On-Line's bookkeeper and the wife of Bob Davis, the creator of "Ulysses" and "the Golden Fleece". The waiter was Rick Chipman, an actual waiter from a local restaurant, The Broken Bit. The woman on the far right is Roberta Williams. The ad was considered somewhat scandalous at the time because of the degree of nudity displayed.

7) First text profanity in games -you can write word "fuck" and similar words and game will understand it.

8) For first voiced profanity in videogames watch Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers (1993).

9) First game with nudity is Yakyuken (1981)
