I thought star fleet forbid using the holodeck to play out your sexual fantasies?
The moment the holodeck DRM failed to update from across the galaxy, the engineers and scientists hacked it.
I just realized an early episode of Voyager all about them hacking the sex back into the holodeck to maintain their sanity would have been awesome.
Not making the Holodeck so it is powered by ejaculate really was a missed opportunity for the engineers.
To the best of my knowledge, Riker never actually fucked any of the holochicks, though. He went on dates with them, wined and dined them, but the simulations never seemed to involve sex.
Even Lt Barclay's holodeck Troi was fully-clothed and not-putting-out, so I think Memedumpster is probably correct: there's some kind of anti-sex DRM in the holodeck software.

I would bet Voyager's crew stopped running sex programs altogether once they discovered the "kill Neelix" option.
What the -- ? SolRo, you got peanut butter on my joke.

Tuvok made it 66.01 seconds, beating Seven of Nine's record by 0.026 seconds, putting him on top of the ship's Neelix Torture roster. Janeway comes in last at 0.020 seconds, with Chakotay at 0.021 seconds. Some say they are playing a different game altogether.

I can't say this is much different from fantasies I've played out in my head involving annoying people who demand a smile. Especially if they're strangers.
JESUS LOVES YOU!

Computer, end holodeck program.
Computer, delete history.

I want the Next Gen guy to start remixing voyager so bad.

Because I know too much about this show ... there was once an episode where people found a very strange simulation in the holodeck, in which the Maquis crewmembers rebelled and you were a Starfleet crewmember. It became a hit game among the crew, but nobody knew where it came from. Well, it turns out it was a training exercise Tuvok had created shortly after the merging of the Starfleet and Maquis crews (pilot episode), in case he needed to train his security people to deal with an uprising; but since the crew merger was pretty peaceful, he figured the best thing was to not use the simulation. He just left it in the holodeck where it was eventually discovered.
So there is actually an in-show precedent for "kill Neelix" being a simulation Tuvok leaves lying around and the rest of the crew takes to playing.

Neelix was the most unnecessary character in Star Trek history.
At least Wesley could save the ship.
Miles Obrien in Next Gen.
His job was to operate the transporter that literally anyone could do from any console at any time.
Neelix's job was to cook food nobody liked on a ship full of replicators. He was also Jar-Jar Binks.
(I know, the in the show's logic it was somehow more efficient to stop all the time and forage for perishable food than to store a tank full of atoms. Somehow, this was never an issue before.)
Sanest Man Alive
That was only his job, garcet. O'Brien's true purpose on the ship was to suffer endlessly.

The Star Trek franchises love former "Benson" stars.

Also, I remember this being a particularly stupid episode. It wasn't as stupid as the one where Paris and Janeway are turned into newts but got better. It's probably about as stupid as the other Tuvok-centric episode where the aliens aged backwards.
Anyway, Tuvok mind-melds with a crazy dude because he just can't understand why said crazy dude would murder another dude whom he felt, "looked at him funny." Do Vulcans not understand the concept of mental illness?
