A lot of time and effort goes into choosing a game title. But sometimes despite this effort, some game titles may invoke a sexual vibe quite by accident.
This is especially true of the following Japanese games. Sometimes these names were the fault of the original Japanese creators who likely didn't realize the English sexual pun they were making. Other times, the fault lies squarely on the shoulders of the localization team who should have known better. But regardless of how these titles came to be, they are definitely worth a chuckle now.
