You have -got- to be kidding me.

Yah, it's one of the formations you can make with all of your troops in a group. There's Flying Goose, Something Dragon...Something Tiger...Something Crane.....ok wtv the point being, it's called The Pointy Phallus. You can imagine what it looks like.
Oh we can't do that Mr. Flibbles, who would clean up the mess?

Also, if you've read the encyclopedia, there's quite a few sexual references. Especially about the illicit buildings.

Pretty sure you can build brothels.

Read the description.
You can build a whole red light district in the game, not just a brothel.

Yes, because the mature explanation of the how geishas were not just prostitutes is exactly the same as full frontal nudity and hardcore sex. At least according to the rating people. :p

I'd assume due to the linking of sex and death; as within the dying monks haiku.

Nothing succeeds like failure.

I don't understand why anyone (who is not an overprotective parent/moral guardian, but I assume they don't browse these boards) would care about ratings.
When I was a kid, I played "M" and "AO" games like a champ.

I played M, but AO? Damn, how the hell did you get your hands on that stuff as a kid. Honestly though as I've matured I don't think kids should be playing M rated games because they start getting desensitized to violence. I'm not as concerned about the rise of sexual content in media, but I am concerned about the overuse of blood in many games. I remember back in the day T rated games hardly ever had blood, but now it's almost expected to have blood and only E rated games don't.
