Parents warned to be aware that Roblox exposes children to sex and nudity

In terms of online games aimed at children, Roblox is by far one of the most popular ones.

Children as young as 5-6 are apparently playing the game, which is intended to be a sort of virtual 3D world where kids can create and play their own games.

This is why, then, it came as a shock to many parents when they realised that with incredible ease, children can be suddenly shifted to a section of the game that exposes them to some very unwelcome, adult situations involving nudity and pornographic acts, CBS News reports.

According to the report, it is 'condo games' that are the problem here, as now serve as a gateway for many inappropriate exposures such as nudity and sex.

When Roblox's child safety filters are bypassed, "condo videos" or nude videos are visibly present, simulating sex acts and using imagery and vocabulary that no child should have to hear.

The problem? There is no controlling this once it is initiated. Parentology recently wrote that kids playing the game can actually simulate sex with completely nude characters – which I think we can all agree is rather shocking.

Roblox was, apparently, designed as a game aimed at children, but unfortunately, controlling who is participating in the game is almost impossible, making it easy for adult predators to weigh in and take over.

CTV News reports: "Videos of the game posted to YouTube show nude characters engaging in sexual positions while text bubbles displaying explicit messages appear overhead. One such video is titled 'How to Rape Someone in Roblox.'"

Were YOU aware there could be issues with Roblox? Are YOU aware of what your child is playing when they are using the game? Have you ever heard about anything inappropriate happening when your child was playing?
