Over the course of the God of War Series, excluding God of War: Betrayal, Kratos comes across multiple naked or topless women in various locations. By approaching these women, he can engage in off-screen sex by performing a minigame. Doing it correctly will release Red Orbs, and result in the women commending Kratos' abilities. The most known woman that Kratos has sex with is Aphrodite, the Goddess of love.

In God of War, two women are seen in Kratos's bed chambers of his ship. Kratos must climb on top of the bed in order to cause the minigame otherwise he would reject their advances. During the sexual act, a vase can be seen reacting to the rocking of the boat, and eventually shattering on the floor when Kratos completes the minigame. Later, in the opening sequence of God of War II, the twins appear at Kratos's feet, near his Throne of War acting as his consorts.
Dialogue between Kratos and the women can be heard, with them beckoning Kratos to stay, and him shrugging their temptations off. In the novel, their role is slightly extended. They are revealed to be twins, named Zora and Lora, and are daughters of Aphrodite, goddess of love and beauty.

Soon other women get excited and two more join in on the action, followed by another four coming in pairs for a total of eight. During the sexual activity, the bed that Kratos and the women are in begins to shake, slightly at first, but as the activity reaches its peak, the bed shakes violently.

|“||Now, I ask you again, Kratos, will you stay?||”|
In God of War III, during his travels across the Upper Gardens, Kratos finds Aphrodite in her chambers having sex with her handmaidens. He has a brief conversation with her, where she bemoans the sorry state of the bridges outside, as it prevents any men from visiting her.
She claims that Daedalus is too busy on Zeus' project to fix them, and that only her "worthless" husband Hephaestus knows how to operate them, all while rolling around her bed provocatively. She asks Kratos to stay with her. Kratos would be given a choice by Aphrodite if she could have sex with him, it depends on the player if he\she would initiate the mini-game. If the player chooses "Yes" the mini-game would begin , while Aphrodite's handmaidens watch them from close by, and ultimately get so aroused that they start making love as well. After the mini-game, Aphrodite rewards Kratos with Red Orbs.
