2:45 Geeks and Kink

Teresa Jusino and Pendard sign on as geek experts research the correlation between sci-fi geekiness and kink/BDSM proclivities. Why are so many geeks kink-friendly, and why are so many comic books and sci-fi plots kinky?

  • Are sci-fi content creators all kinky, or do the fans demand kink?
  • Why are depictions of kink in sic fi more realistic and more accepted?
  • Are creators/consumers kinkier than the average bear or just average but more willing to talk about it?
  • Four theories on the collision of geeks and kink
  • Pendard shares the kinky background of Wonder Woman; was William Marston kinky himself?
  • The top five geektastic kinky couples
  • Listener question from Graydancer: why are there more “real” geek girls out there now?
  • Geek Girl Con
  • Listener question from Justin: does the geek/kink connection have to do with intelligence?

Poly Sci-fi novel: Triptych

  • Triptych by J.M. Frey – visit for blurb and pre-orders. Nice poly love story told with true emotion, but it wasn’t necessary for the alien to be an alien.

DVD Reviews: Pornomation

Pornomation from AdamEve.comThis and other DVDs are available at AdamandEve.com. Use coupon code Minx for 50% off just about any item!

For last weekend’s special Brownies and Porn in Saint Louis, I wanted to try something a bit different. I figured there would be a good quota of sci-fi geeks there, and I was just really curious about XXX sci-fi fantasy porn. What would it be like?

The Pornomation DVD is split into two sections (swear to god, I seriously typed that “sexions” first!), Animations and Visitations. Animations is a series of roughly five-minute 3D animated clips, and Visitations is a collection of fantasy art set to music (quite artistically, really).

Comments from Brownies and Porn audience:

  • “She should get 2D8 damage” (said of a real woman sucking an animated cock the size of my entire torso)
  • who knew that one of the benefits of two women fucking a hobbit was that one of them could pick it up and use him to fuck the other woman?
  • Is it enviroporn if the hobbit becomes a tree after orgasm?
  • (for the short “Abduction”) Those five extra tentacles come in really handy for prying her pussy open, don’t they?
  • Even animated, porn stars shouldn’t be allowed to talk
  • (For the short “Passage”) the Valkyrie’s wings come in really handy for cunnilingus–the guy can remain standing, and she can just hover at mouth level! Now THAT’s a useful fantasy!
  • (For the short “The Groupies”) “Those just remind me of the California raisins” (if the California raisins were penises)

The Stimulations sections provided a huge variety of fantasy sex for all tastes–and I mean all tastes. Yup, some things this little girl never imagined showed up, including rock and tree porn, dinosaurs, self cunnilingus, Gulliver’s travels (yes, tiny women crawling on a giant man), mermaids, fucking the ocean, dolphin porn, a toothy crocodile eating a woman out, satyrs, equine cunnilingus, fantasy interspecies erotica, fairies, minotaurs, harpies, fangs, a skull with a penis tongue and a skeleton strapping on a live cock and fucking an anatomically perfect chick and dual and barbed barbed cocks. Oh, yes, a little something for everyone! I think we’ve found the DVD that makes Minx feel tame!
