Gameplay for Sexy Beach 3 is based entirely on the number of dates intiated with the various characters. The more dates that you initiate the more options of the game are unlocked. It is not necessary to take any special action during the dating simulation,("Ecchi" and "Rub Oil" are completely optional choices) and progress can be made by simply intiating a date and exiting it right away. Your heart level, per character, will reach "5 clear" once 42 dates with that character have been initiated. Once "5 Clear" is achieved all options are unlocked.
