Doesn't make sense. Steam has recently been allowing erotic games without censoring them, while including an option to filter out those games, so why can't Sony do the same thing?

Sony can do that too, it's just bothering to spend the time / money to do it.

I highly doubt Sony will change their stance though.

On this issue Sony is really disappointing lately. Hopefully they will change their mind, but I'm afraid only another PS3 level struggle (or worse) would make them realize not to alienate their customers.
Consoles owned:
Sony Playstation, Sony Playstation 2, PSP, Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Playstation Vita, Sega Saturn.

Consoles wanted:
Sega Dreamcast, Wonderswan.

I agree with you there, Sony has been very upsetting lately due to them thinking they own the market.

They probably want a "clean and family friendly" facade for PR reasons, which from a business standpoint is respectable... but then there's Steam that allow erotic games, and is making some good money out of it.

The way the atmosphere is of lately its no surprise a huge corporation would start looking at ways to protect its interest. But I also thought that's what the rating system was for.

I think Sony is mostly just being picky, all the way from which games release and are censored or not to even their Multiplayer support. 
They showed they're very stubborn over the whole cross platform play for Fortnite awhile back.

The thing is that there's a difference between erotic, porn or hentai games and "sexual content" in a 17+ or 18+ rated game. Removing boob physics, provoking outfits or even brief, "soft" sex scenes (à la The Witcher or Mass Effect) in the name of being "family friendly" in a game not supposed to be for children is just asinine, imo.

Moreover Sony consoles have always had an older target audience than, say, Nintendo (young adult/teens vs children). The fact that their behavior seems to be the exact opposite of what it is "supposed" to be it's really telling about Sony's attitude.

The fact that they're forcing Japanese developers to censor their games for the PS4 in ALL regions, even Japan means that even Japan is getting screwed over. And to think that Nintendo of all companies is fine with anime tiddies.

Apparently Sony of America moved to California, which makes sense when you think about it.
