Minecraft mods on PC number into the thousands, especially if you’re playing the Minecraft Java Edition. The vast majority of the mods available to download from places like CurseForge – a modification repository that’s used for a number of popular games, including Minecraft, World of Warcraft, and Kerbal Space Program – are, for the most part, fairly innocent.

What are Minecraft Mods?

Mods that are available through Minecraft Bedrock Edition, which is probably the version of Minecraft that your kids are playing on console, mobile, and PC, are vetted by the Mojang team at Microsoft to ensure that they are both high quality and family-friendly.

Not all mods are made equal, mind you, and CurseForge ensures that all of those mods are available to download… for good and ill. One of these not-so-great mods is the Jenny mod that’s available through CurseForge on PC and via APK (Android Application Package) for Android OS devices. In theory, you can also purchase a version of this mod through in-game currency.

The Minecraft Jenny Mod

The Minecraft Jenny mod is a NSFW (not safe for work) unofficial Minecraft mod that introduces an in-game “girlfriend” for Minecraft players that simulates adult interactions. Yes, those kinds of adult interactions. It’s becoming an increasingly popular mod that runs in “Creative” mode. Now, Jenny can be your “bestie,” but that’s not why parents need to be paying closer attention to children downloading this particular mod, of course.

Minecraft Bedrock Edition doesn’t allow unofficial mod installation, so the best way to ensure that kids aren’t going to download and install Jenny is to make sure that Bedrock Edition is the version of Minecraft that they’re using. Java Edition has some excellent mods, including the Redstone mods on CurseForge, but it does require extra intervention. There are no parental controls available on CurseForge, so use discretion.

Jenny might be available for bestie status, but she certainly wasn’t coded just for those purposes. Be cautious.

9 thoughts on “Minecraft Jenny Mod: What It Is And What Parents Need To Know”
  1. I do feel like it’s a mistake to advise parents to make sure their child is on bedrock. Java edition is vastly superior. Also, Parents shouldn’t be blacklisting their kids from things like this; They should be raising kids that know better.

    1. The debate between Bedrock and JAVA editions will rage on all eternity. You’re certainly welcome to your opinion on that.

      We steer people towards Bedrock edition because it allows kids to play Multiplayer with their friends on consoles. It also sidesteps things like this.

      I agree that we should strive to raise our kids to know better, but some things have no place near a child. We believe that this is one of those things.

  2. Minecraft “Bedrock Edition” is both an inferior and vastly more expensive game in many regards, as well as being a vessel for incredibly strict censorship that is unbefitting of the platform such as new content guidelines, clunky controls and horrendously bad design for console and even PC usage, simply attempting to steer children away from Java puts huge strain on the wallet and even greater strain on a child’s capacity for growth in computer science paths, as the difficult aspect of modding the game and manipulation of files can serve as a greater learning experience than could be stood to in many other games or platforms, and directly builds great skills and gives great reward for learning them.

    1. Hi Isaac,

      I appreciate your opinion. But, I respectfully disagree with several of them.

      1. Bedrock may be more expensive, but it is the only way to play on consoles, and it is the only way that kids can play with their friends who are also on consoles.
      2. Censorship, when it comes to content intended for children, is a good idea. You’re leaving this comment on an article about a mod that gives the player a girlfriend (and all that that may come with). I’m SURE you can understand why that is problematic for kids.
      3. You are right that Bedrock doesn’t let kids mod the game and that does limit their potential stem learning. But, that isn’t the goal for every parent who is hoping to give their kids Minecraft. Kids who learn to play Minecraft will ultmiately learn that Java exists and can access it if they want (and their family has a machine that can run it.)

    1. We know.

      That’s why we said in the article text that the best way to prevent your kids from using the mod would be to use Bedrock. That excludes the Jenny mod by default.

      Thanks for your concern. Next time… read the whole thing. 🙂

  3. While it’s true that forcing children to use Bedrock edition instead of the obviously superior java edition can stop them from using mods, that doesn’t make it a good idea. That would stop them from utilizing the unlimited creativity and technological knowledge they could gain from mods such as Mekanism, Create, and much more.

    Since you are already here, it is likely that your child has already learnt about this mod – which is a good reason to take measures to prevent this. But if you have no reason to think that your child is using this mod, and you are just being a bad parent who doesn’t trust their kids, then I would recommend you don’t prevent them from playing java edition off the teeny weeny chance that they will discover unclean content (which everything made by online strangers has)

    I understand that your children might want to play with their numbskull friends who also use consoles (which are hard to use and kinda laggy), but you could also encourage them to tell their friends to get the better java edition of Minecraft. Alternatively, you could use plugins like geysermc to connect java edition to bedrock edition – which would be a valuable learning opportunity for your child to gain experience in setting this up .

    My opinion is that a child should have access to both editions of Minecraft so they can both play with their friends on bedrock and play with mods by themselves.
    In conclusion: unless you have observed your child using this mod, don’t take away any of their editions of minecraft.
