I get surprisingly few complaints from readers, but I did receive a couple of disapproving emails about this one. I thought from the clothing evident on the characters, it would be obvious they were simply engaged in a bit of what we once called “heavy petting” on the sofa. Of all the times I’ve touched on marital relations, I didn’t expect to shock anyone with this one. However, the complaints felt this particular cartoon was too graphic. To me, this illustrates what I’ve always believed: a lot of what goes on in Arlo & Janis goes on in the readers’ mind. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.
