The VIVA Woman, who we've already learned is a svelte, fashionable chick with a passing interest in soft occultism who knows that shutting the fuck up is the way to a man's heart, is a person who seeks adventure. Primarily, adventure that ends with sexy results. At some point in their market research, the editors of VIVA agreed that Women Love Animals--which is really pretty true.
I think they were off on the degree to which most women love animals, however.
When I stumbled across the above letter to the editor, I assumed that this was some kind of one-off bit of looniness. Surely VIVA was not eroticizing bestiality! Then I saw the centerfold:
That, lieblings and liebchens, is NOT Photoshopped--it just had to be scanned in two pieces because it is a centerfold and my scanner wasn't large enough. A CENTERFOLD OF TWO LIONS HUMPING.
Mule sex and lion sex aside (which--really--is A LOT to put aside, in my estimation), why did they choose the picture of the sexy kitty to highlight the review on an erotic art coffee table book? I have plenty of erotic art coffee table books, and there are far, FAR more suitable illustrations to highlight than a portrait of an anthropomorphic cat prostitute. Holy Special Needs, kids...!
