Are You Ready for (Me and) "Dr. Dick"?
Here are three questions that may help you decide whether to listen to a certain podcast interview that has been posted online in two parts over the past two Mondays:
1 Would you tend to be wary of a website named Dr. Dick’s Sex Advice?
2 Might you find it reflexively unsettling to encounter a podcast that opens with the cheery, booming salutation "Welcome, Sex Fans!!"?
3 Would pondering the likely merits of an herbal erection-enhancement product named So Hard deter you from forging onward to a lively recorded conversation about life, cartoons, and the closet between yours truly and an ebullient former-Catholic-priest-turned-sex-therapist that follows it?
That’s kept me pretty darned preoccupied, and my head is still filled with the jumble of new images I’ve been putting together. Hence the spare verbal content of this blog entry; I’m pretty much "written out" for now. So I’ll compensate with a couple of pictures and a tip about my latest round of podcast gabbing.
Picture 1: "Death By Art"
It’ll be your loss, though, because our wide-ranging discussion of my history as a gay cartoonist and occasional porn purveyor turned out to be a jolly exchange that wasn’t X-rated in the least (at least, not by my admittedly indulgent underground-comix standards). As I said in surprise to the good doctor when our interview had concluded: "Gee, what kind of sex site are you running? I don’t think we said the word penis once!"
