Let's hope that the Guardian never has a slow news day and discovers those octopus sex manga.
You’ve obviously missed that boat.
I sat on the toilet, as you do. And as I sat there in my paper cracker crown, I happened to look up and focus on the wall, and when I did I saw (and there's no delicate way of putting this) a picture of a large-breasted naked woman being penetrated by an octopus.
Being a sporadic reader of Fortean Times, I was aware of Hentai tentacle porn, sometimes called "tentacle rape" – apparently developed to bypass Japanese censorship laws forbidding the depiction of the penis, with examples dating back to the 19th century. But, unlike the stuff in the current British Museum exhibition entitled Shunga: sex and pleasure in Japanese art, this particular octopus, purple and corpulent and priapic as it was, was coated in a sheen of milky bodily fluids. It was hideous and disturbing and hilarious, and I laughed my head off.
