  1. The long-windedness is appreciated, believe me. Yeah, we did end up having a Q&A session at the end, but I apologize that it was put after the video segment instead of before it.

    As for the question "Why guro?" your input is definitely very valid. We'll try to flesh out some form of an answer to that much more fully in the future. Basically, I felt a little presumptuous just making up a reason based on my own personal theories, but obviously failing to address that question is not a better approach. It's something I thought about a lot, but never managed to put together any clear, fully-formed ideas on, so that is something I will think through and cement more for myself. There is no real widely accepted explanation for sadomasochism, it just seems to be a sort of natural instinct that is more accentuated in some than others. I tried polling people informally on their guro fixation, and while childhood trauma seemed to sometimes be a cause, it was not the main cause. Your take on it is definitely a good start, and if we give the panel again I will definitely work on a more coherent (if still slightly vague) answer to that question.

    Thanks to everyone who's replied :).

  2. I was one of the panelists for the Erotic, Grotesque Nonsense panel Saturday night. We were all first-time panelists, so we definitely want to nip any and all problems in the bud for future cons. Have any feedback on the good, the bad, the ugly? We'd like to hear it, and honesty is appreciated. The biggest problem was definitely that panel ran a bit shorter than we had wanted, and that was mostly because a video portion we had made wound up not working. But the first thing we will do if we decide to give the panel again is to add on more content (although Legend of the Overfiend definitely fully deserves the amount of time we gave it). So if you could tell us what you'd like to see more of, that would be great.
