“I wondered why the sex in those books looked a lot different than the other books. These books had pictures of famous cartoons. I remember looking at pictures of Betty Boop, Superman, and Archie and the Gang. In one of these books, I remember that the people were having sex everywhere. One boy accidentally stuck another boy in the butt. I thought that was weird.”

Oh boy!
