There is no new thing under the sun...

 Watched a programme on Japan today and googled Hokusai afterwards.

Remember all those tentacle sex fan porn stories?  (Harry Potter fandom in particular has it's share)

Nothing new!

Hokusai's print "Dream of the Fisherman's Wife' is below the cut....  (If I've worked out correctly how to do a cut.  It's been a long time since I used one)

Enter your cut contents here.

Harry Potter has a lot of tentacle porn? Really? Like, which character has tentacles???

(I had seen the woodcut before. It's quite something...)

And that collection still doesn't include the ones I've read (by a friend ... I may have beta-read some of them!) with the Giant Squid/Whomping Willow, nor the one that's Giant Squid/Astronomy Tower... (yes, really).

... ok.

To be fair, if it's well done [tentacle porn, I mean], it can be excellent. I've read one with Illyria & Spike, and a Torchwood one with Jack/Ianto (where Ianto was the tentacled alien). I still remember that one as one of the outstanding fics from that fandom. (Yes there was pr0n, but it was a proper story, with plot and exquisite characterisation and ye gods, now I want to go hunt it down.)

Wow. Just...wow.

Tentacles have never done a thing for me, but I can read wingfic quite happily.

It's all Douglas MacArthur's fault.

(No, really; he wrote the post-WW2 Japanese censorship law which made it impossible to depict a willy but not a tentacle with willy-like behavour, which is why elements of these floating world paintings got resurrected in their porn, and that leaked into Western slash...)
