Is anybody out there surprised that a game that allows you to have sex with most of its characters has attracted players who are interested in it for the sole reason of boinking everyone? We thought not.

Baldur's Gate 3 boasts the endlessness of the tabletop adventure game it's based on, and with that comes plenty of horny gamers trying to bed everything like a bard-trained Lando Calrissian. It's got rampant to such a degree, it's become a pretty big selling point for the game.

Even the devs warned that there's no limit to the NSFW gameplay of Baldur's Gate 3, and it seems they really meant it. Now, there are players racing through the game to see how fast they can get some with the Baldur's Gate 3 sex speedrun.

Sex speedruns in Baldur's Gate 3 are already happening

We wouldn't be boasting about how quickly we can finish in this particular context, but that's just us. We knew that speedruns would eventually come for Baldur's Gate 3, adding a new means of experiencing the game.

But before they've had a chance to stick, players are getting stickier, as they're racing to see how quickly they can get laid in Baldur's Gate 3. The sex% speedrun has appeared online and already boasts a pretty impressive lead time.

YouTube user Mae has revealed that they can get lucky with Lae'zel in only 7 minutes and 54 seconds, which is a pretty quick turnaround. There's no doubt that this is a speedrun category that's going to take over, and we're likely to see faster times - but an impressive time dominates the current leaderboard.

As the Baldur's Gate 3 sex speedrun goes viral (you might want to get that checked), others are coming for the crown. The second-place speedrun in this - ahem - special category is surprisingly far behind Mae, and it looks to prove that their dominion in this speedrun could be long-standing.

The next run in the sex% category is MagsIsAwkward, who trails far behind at 17 minutes and 42 seconds. We won't be shocked if this is a speedrun that snowballs in popularity, especially as shagging is a pretty big draw for the game. Some of you might need to get out a little more instead of trying to bang bears and Mind Flayers.
