Podcast Episode 34: Smut

ConSequential Podcast 34 - Smut! (Porn)Or pornographic comics, if you’re nasty. We take a broad overview of smutty books, try not to say anything too awful about Sonic The Hedgehog fan art, and rate various pornoglyphs on “wankability”. Or Roger does. He’s very forward. Read On…
