To me Anime chicks, game chicks, or even cg women are all just works of art to be admired. Some meet my asthetic standards of beauty or cuteness and some do not.

If I look at the painting of the Venus De Milo and say she is beautiful is it really any different to look at a female anime character or cgi character and say she is beautiful?

Some say the created images of people is silly but looking at Playboy models can they be considered real after all the procesing done to the pics? That person as you see her does not exist, she was created in a art lab.

The way I see it is it doesnt matter. I stand as much chance of spending time with Laura Croft as I do with Anna Kournikova. Both might as well be imaginary

There's a lot of porn on the internet - isn't that just pixels as well? I mean, face it, you aren't likely to meet any pornstars you can see; and you certainly can't meet any totally CGI characters.

Drawings and CGI girls are often idealised and highly stylised representantions of women (or at least how the artist sees them or wants them). There's nothing wrong with that, and it's been happening since early medieval painting.

If the girl is perfectly resemblent of a real life woman, then okay, art, appreciate it.

there is a fine line of sickness crossed when people post this:

Why? What it comes down to is, people can find a variety of things beautiful or attractive, and because few people have sex whenever they please, a good deal of people, do indeed masturbate, and usually to porn found online, playboys, or considering the population of Japan and the growing fads, Hentai and similar forms of erotica. Pornstars can range from ugly to good in terms of appearance and alot of the time it's the act that turns people on more than anything, which is mostly faked and acted out. Playboy, Maxim, similar magazines all offer breathtaking views of beautiful women, that have been airbrushed, make upped, lit with propper lighting and afterwards photoshopped. Hentai or erotic art of any style is similar to the playboy (and similar magazines) in it that we are presented with an artificial product born of something real, the real thing being the ideas of sex and women, the artificial element being it's visualization. It's not real, but it's got tits (if not several more pairs than usually, not my thing but some guys like it), it's got ass, it's got long legs and a pretty face, so why not? Masturbation isn't exactly sex, it's something artificial that we do to make up for not having sex when we want to have sex, or simply for the hell of it because it feels good. Pixels, paint, or plastic (silicon), I could care less so long as it's beautiful. If it's not your thing then it's not your thing, but don't tell people not to do it, or that it's weird or pervetted, because if you can jack off and not feel guilty, you've essentialy done the same thing, used an artificial medium to releive yourself sexually.

VOP2288;3506318While I would agree that yes my male nature tells me that some of these CG and game girls are pretty attractive polygons (Lara Croft=hotness not matter what) I can still recognize that its a bit creepy to be swooning over something a 350 lb bearded sloppy virgin artist drew or put together for his own twisted pleasure.

I must say though that the only thing I've come across of this type thats even creepier is (i dont know if they still do it) when PSM magazine has artists draw up "swimsuit" versions of CG girls so that the mag can have a "swimsuit edition".

I don't think it is wrong to think that game babes are hot. I quite liked Mira from Knights of the Old Republic 2. :)

I don't think it's weird to think that they're pretty or good looking or whatever you want to say. But if it comes to the point where you can wank to its image, then it's just a little bit weird.

That said, it's still not necessarily weird in the fact that no one does it. If that were the case, hentai wouldn't exist. Just a personal opinion I guess.
