Episode 13: Explicit Content, or get all that sex out of my violence

Episode 13

Kelly and Angela take a look at EXPLICIT CONTENT in comics and manga. Does manga get a bad rap for its sexual and violent content? Is violence always for shock value? Is sexual content always meant to be titillating? If we’re ok with teens having sex in a YA novel, why not in comics for teens?How do we deal with explicit content in the library? Also, did you know Iron Man and Black Widow have a canonical sex tape?
