Violence vs. Sex

As you may be aware, the ESRB has changed the rating on Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas from M to AO, causing most retailers to stop carrying it. The reason for this was a hidden feature that allowed the main character to have sex unblurred and full frontal. As you also may be aware, GTA is also famous for giving the player the ability to do anything, which normally means that the player will do something mean with a chainsaw.
But what disturbs me is that the game got its AO for sex. Why is sex punished more than arteryspurting chainsaw action? Sex doesn't kill people (unless you get AIDS or something). In fact, sex actually makes people! Why is it in our society that sex is seen as worse than violence? I really have no farking clue. Insights, dear readers?
