    Although none of his stuff can said to be completely "Realistic" at least most of the folks involved are having a very good time.  

    I don't blame Christians. I blame Stupid. Which sadly is a much more popular religion these days.

      Yes, Phil Foglio was an inspiration (if that is the word I want) for the type of story I tried to do.

      Some time later, I had the opportunity to do an interview with him, and on the subject he said:

      XXXenophile started because while I am fond of the IDEA of adult comics, there were very few that I could stomach. Most creators seem unable to keep "taboo" subjects properly compartmentalized, so when they try to do a sexually explicit story, they feel they can throw in some excessive violence, or dismal "real life" consequences or some political satire or whatever, and seem to be unable to understand why this can make it unappetizing. I was bitching about this and said bitching ran along these lines; "Why the hell can't people just write nice happy stories about people having happy sex? That's what I want, and I bet a whole bunch of other people want it too. There's a real market for this. Why doesn't some fool realize this? Hey..wait a minute...I could be that fool!" The rest is history.
