Overview

Cult of the Lamb Sex Update refers to an upcoming update titled "Sins of the Flesh" for the 2022 roguelike base-building game Cult of the Lamb, commonly referred to within the game's community as the "sex update" despite not actually adding sexual content to the game. Shortly following the announcement of the update in late November 2023, the social media account for the game performed a viral stunt, promising to add a "sex update" to the game should the social account account reach over 300,000 followers by the end of the year, and managed to accomplish the feat within three hours instead. The so-called "sex update" inspired an memes, discussions and similar promises from other users and companies on X / Twitter.

Background

Starting on the same day, users on X / Twitter and other social media referred to the announced update as "sex update," a reference to a long-running meme in the gaming community in which players demand developers to add sex to their games.
