“Everywhere you look, porn is suddenly inescapable… On a recent cross-country trip from Los Angeles, Jana Matthews thought she’d lucked out when her friendly seatmate cued up a cartoon on his laptop.

Naked, noisy things, unfettered by the restraints of human anatomy because the participants were, after all, hand-drawn.”
