  • Greetings Lene!

    Thanks so much for the plug of our show and we will surely return the favor! Keep up the good work!

  • Dear LT,
    For years now I have been scolded for using the term "girl" and told that "woman" is more appropriate. My own personal sensibilities (warped though they be) tell me that "girl" implies youth, and as such should be considered a compliment. But, reluctantly, I've complied. Now I listen to your cast and hear you using the term girl. Can you explain this conundrum?

  • Enjoying listening to your podcasts. I know this is a bit out of date considering the date of this particular show, but I though I'd mention that a lot of the confusion about the presentation of the sexuality in the manga "Desire" that you felt would be answered by looking more closely at some of the obsessions and fetishes that are common in Japanese culture.

    There is a common fascination with forced sex and discomfort presented in the recieving partner in sex in their media. It is pretty universal in their hentai and regular porn. In fact, it is almost unheard of for the recieving partner in porn to show much pleasure. Rather they act like they are in pain almost throughout even the most vanilla sex.
