Porn & Prejudice Banner

Thanks to GaymerConnect, I was able to meet and chat with Kori Michele, creator of the Prince of Cats webcomic – a story of two boys in a conservative area, struggling and fumbling through their feelings for each other. It’s realistic, heartfelt and just really genuine – a great antidote to the sparkly-eyed and unbelievable chemistryless romances that Hollywood and anime throw at us these days. (Sam Witwicky and his rebound Pornstar *cough cough*)

It’s a fun-filled 40 Minutes about the comic’s origin’s and goals, Kori’s advice for new artists, and recommendations for comic lovers.

… although at one point we got into some heated literary criticisms of Yaoi, which while awesome – was NSFW, 18+ and very much unsafe for radio.
I’ve uploaded it as a separate YouTube Video, and Audio Download – something on the side if you’d like a mature discussion of keeping the portrays of love, sex and relationships healthy. Or at least, how to annoy two people with bad writing.
