We can have a slumber party Monday, right?! In honor of the new Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark adaptation (directed by André Øvredal, and screenplay by Dan Hageman, Kevin Hageman, and of course, Guillermo del Toro), this week we are reading you some of our all time favorites from the classic novels. Originally released in 1981, written by Alvin Schwartz, with bone-chilling illustrations from Stephen Gammell, these spooky stories made us into the creepy ladies we are today.

Episode 31: Monster F**ker

July 8, 2019

Mary Meyer, aka Hobo Shojo, is a bisexual, biracial, and bilingual artist located in north central Ohio. She's also a witch, a wife, and mother of two gorgeous cats. Oh, and she also wants to fuck monsters. 

This week we are bringing you one helluva guestisode. We interview Mary about her definitions of teratophilia/xenophilia, where you can find more information about the community, key artists, and other sex-positive themes. 

Goes without saying for this one, but CONTENT WARNING. We discuss explicit sexual themes for pretty much the whole episode, so hold on to yer boots.
