'Grand Theft Auto' Hot Coffee Mod: Sex Mini-Game

What's the adult-only mini-game in 'GTA'?

Grand Theft Auto San Andreas
Rockstar Games

Hot Coffee is a mini-game in "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas" for PlayStation 2, Xbox, and PC. It allows your character to perform virtual sex acts with your virtual girlfriend within the game. However, Hot Coffee is locked by default so that during normal gameplay, it isn't seen or accessed in any way.

In the original releases of "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas," the game remained, albeit locked and unknown to most gamers. The Hot Coffee Mod was released in 2005, enabling access to the mini-game.

If your copy of "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas" was manufactured on or after the fourth quarter of 2005, then the code has been removed, and the mods will not work. Also, if you have updated your PC version of the game, chances are the mods won't work because a patch has been released that disables the code.

What It Does, and Why 'Hot Coffee'?

The Hot Coffee Mod adds another set of missions that the main character, CJ, has to go through. These missions involve dating his girlfriends.

In the game, you can have up to six girlfriends. By improving your relationships with your girlfriends, you can eventually end the date with sexual acts. It's important to note that if hackers had not modified the code, these mini-games would not be available to the public.

Why is it called Hot Coffee? It's widely accepted that the term "coffee" in this case is simply a euphemism for sex. At the end of a good date, CJ's girlfriend will ask if he'd like to come in for coffee, where a mini-sex game ensues.

By successfully dating your girlfriends, you can earn special upgrades within the game, such as weapons and vehicles. Without the Hot Coffee Mod, the player will just hear some noises and see the house from the exterior while CJ and his girlfriend have coffee. With the mod, the whole thing turns into a mini-sex game.

How Graphic Is the Content in the Hot Coffee Mod?

On both PC and Xbox, the whole concept of what's going on is indeed crude and for mature audiences only. There's nothing to see except some pixelated characters going through the motions of intercourse. It wouldn't be appropriate for anyone under the age of 18.

"Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas" was originally released with a Mature rating, so any child with a responsible parent wouldn't be playing the game anyway. The rating has since been changed to Adult Only.

Are You Sure the Developer Added the Hot Coffee Mod?

If you could only perform these sexual mini-games on the Xbox and PC through the use of downloadable game modifications, the answer might be no. However, the Hot Coffee Mod can also be unlocked through the use of Action Replay, a cheat device which adds specific codes to the game to alter what the developers already have there. So, in this case, it was something added by the developer.

The Xbox Hot Coffee Mod will require the use of a modchip to be installed. The PlayStation 2 Hot Coffee Codes can only be used with Action Replay or Gameshark as linked (the files linked here are not suitable for children of any age).
