Skype Sex on Xbox One – What Will The LIVE Enforcement Team See?

A question from a male (mid-twenties, so tempted to out his gamertag) friend on Xbox LIVE asked me about the limitations of Skyping with his female friends in the buff on the Xbox One console. The main concern was that whilst he is excited about 1080p voice controlled cyber-sex-mutual-masturbation-whatever-you-call-it on an HD screen with his overseas girlfriend (or potentially string of them), will the Xbox LIVE enforcement team take action on his account for such recreational non-gaming activities with his penis?

I felt I had to post this because when I actually tried to think of it, the enforcement action – not his Skyping! It actually made me wonder too if two adults naked on Skype on Xbox One is a breach of the Xbox One Terms of Use and would warrant an account ban. As such an account ban would also revoke all access to digitally downloaded titles associated with the account, DLC and whatever else is on offer tied to that account. Whilst cam to cam sexual activity is at play on PC’s, my only response was that I write about gaming news and reviews, I am not all that in-tune with Xbox LIVE’s Terms of Use for Xbox One, but that I would imagine if your account was reported then yes – the Xbox LIVE enforcement team might end up having a gawp at some still image or even video clip of what was taking place through the use of Kinect. Or, alternatively since the console has three operating systems, whatever is running Skype could operate completely differently and that since such activity is acceptable on Skype over a PC with both adults at play, what you perform on Skype on Xbox One could relate to Skype’s terms of use. It is a logical assumption that enforcement can not see what you have been doing on Skype unless you have been reported for it!

If you have been thinking the same question as both a fan of consoles and Skype – and now you want to combine the two – it’s worth knowing that under the Skype terms of use, Skype will keep your video messages and store all history for up to 90 days. Skype on the Xbox One will allow for group Skype video calls too, but my best advice would be that if you’re into masturbating over Skype and you have some privacy concerns with Xbox LIVE enforcement then keep it on a PC.

Thisisxbox.com has contacted Skype to ask what the deal is on masturbating on the Xbox One with Kinect. If a reply is given, we’ll post in due course.
