Can you help me get in touch with adult game developers, with all these games you review you must have a lot of dev friends?

DatWombat says. . .

You’d think that, but few developers reach out to me directly. Typically, they just send me games with a note attached; I thank them publicly, and once in a blue moon they ask for additional feedback. I haven’t had much success with “big name” developers, I guess I’m not popular enough. I’m not “buddy buddy” with very many small developers either. I wouldn’t feel comfortable passing out their information.

If you’re a Steam user, I recommend reaching out via developers’ social media. Alternatively, Steam Discussion boards can be used to garner attention, but it’s not very professional. You may consider adding developers as “friends” to chat with them. Keep in mind developer accounts can’t send friend requests, only receive (at least that’s what I’ve heard).

If you’re not a Steam user, I’m not sure where else to look. A lot of Steam developers do make software on other sites, such as Itch. You can try to reach out on Reddit for business inquiries, but I doubt you’ll catch any big name developers that way. Profitable developers are up their ass in code, so they may not have much time to spare for side projects (if that’s what you had in mind).
