I wonder if they can make content such as clothing, age based if it was more mature in a sense. Meaning some small snippet of code in one of the content's files would be read by the core client and thus restricted for accounts, whose age is below the set age assigned in the item. So if by some chance if this were implemented and a piece of clothing was to be, "too revealing" mind you, it would be invisible or something. It would be removed from the store front so that the user who is underage, wouldn't be able to purchase it. If an avatar was to be wearing an age restricted item, it would load a default item for the user that is under the set age. But of course, it isn't hard for a user to create a separate account with the age set to 18+, or, uses a family member's account. Just an idea.
Edit: I know, to some it's a horrible idea considering the abundance of already available content that is fairly revealing. But if they continue to release even more revealing articles of virtual clothing that start to show off even more, with clear identification of private parts (Though unlikely considering Home's set age rating), it would be somewhat effective & would boast that Sony is doing something to prevent minors from being exposed to rather "pronographic" type of content, while despite the hypocrisy & ridiculousness, cater to the more mature audience when releasing this type of stuff. It's an obvious double standard if that be the case but they are a business and if more people request it, they'd have little choice but to appease them if it will sell well for that type audience. But of course, the arguments & debates would still rage on, if not worsen, with statements like, "Well, they shouldn't be releasing this type of stuff anyways!". But yeah....
