Cyberpunk 2077 Features Junk Customization

The ratings we've seen so far for Cyberpunk 2077 are pretty raucus, and the ESRB Listing for CD Projekt RED's upcoming RPG is no exception. This describes a game that features mutilation, dismemberment, first-person sex, and customizable genitals. No kidding, here's what it says to expect to be able to do with your gonads: "Players can select a gender and customize their character; customization can include depictions of breasts, buttocks, and genitalia, as well as various sizes and combinations of genitals." Here's the full monty:
This is a first-person RPG/shooter in which players assume the role of a mercenary named V trying to make their way through the open-world of Night City. Players can explore futuristic locations, interact with citizens, perform missions, and engage in combat to complete various objectives within a storyline. Characters use handguns, machine guns, rifles, and explosives during frenetic firefights with humans and cybernetically enhanced enemies; players can also use melee weapons (e.g., wrist-mounted blades, enhanced limbs) to stab enemies and, in some cases, dismember them. Combat is frenetic, with frequent gunfire, cries of pain, explosions, and blood-splatter effects. Some locations depict mutilated corpses with open chest cavities and/or exposed organs/entrails. During one quest, players assist a character by hammering nails through his hands and feet; screaming sounds and blood effects accompany the scene. The game contains nudity and sexual material: Players can select a gender and customize their character; customization can include depictions of breasts, buttocks, and genitalia, as well as various sizes and combinations of genitals. Players can encounter events where they have the option to engage in sexual activities with other main characters or prostitutes—these brief sex scenes (from a first-person perspective) depict partially nude characters moaning suggestively while moving through various positions. Some scenes contain brief depictions of thrusting motions; other scenes depict a character's head moving towards a partner's crotch. The game contains frequent depictions and references to fictional drugs, including characters taking puffs/hits from a state-altering inhaler/stimulant; an animated billboard ad depicts a man snorting speed. Some sequences allow the player to drink alcoholic beverages repeatedly until the screen distorts; player's character can also drive cars while drunk. The words “f**k” and "c*nt" appear in the dialogue.

I'd like to know how much time the average person actually spends customizing the appearance of their characters in video games. For the games that have highly intricate appearance customization, how many players actually use it?

Personally, in single player games if the default character isn't ugly I don't even bother with character appearance customization. The extent of my character appearance customization in Cyberpunk 2077 will be clicking through the preset characters to see which one looks the best and then clicking the 'next' button to just get into the game.

The amount of time developers put into building intricate character customization just seems like a huge waste of time. I can't imagine that many players make use of 100 different sliders to adjust ever aspect of a character.

Cyberpunk is a product derived from a tabletop RPG I believe, not just a game by a popular developer. So part of apealing to that crowd is to have as much customisability as possible, and the fiction is all about body modifications and self determined identity and whatnot so they would probably put a premium on making sure this is more nuts than Saints Row 3/4. Literally.
