For the culturally conservative among our readership who seem to have collectively inhaled about a pint of spit on viewing the dread octosock ( here), I would like to point out that this kind of thing is hardly unprecedented in art, particularly art produced in Japan. I adduce Hokusai's 1820 woodcut, "The Dream of the Fisherman's Wife":

Oriental Deviancy? Say something sharp, Nef. Also, this might be a good juncture for the various other XXs (N-WAX MOBAXAX, per esempio) to jump on board.

Hey - I actually gave the octo-sock a thumbs-up, although I would question the suggestion (not that you are making it) that pornography might somehow be deployed as a subversive device (cf. Ben 'Out to Lunch' Watson's faintly ludicrous brand of porno-Marxism), part of some 'emancipation of Eros', etc.
