Oh boy, this one is gonna be...fun.

Currently, My Balls is deadlocked. I'd really like to hear from some people who have read it before casting the tiebreaker. As I understand it, its a sex-themed comedy and something of a hentai parody (since the entire point is for the protagonist not to have sex). So...let's just get some feedback here.

Yeah, it really skirts the line at times, but from what I've read, it isn't purely pornography.

I've actually read the first volume of this and I have to say, it seemed to me to be more sex comedy than actual porn. Most of the time when sex comes up it's more to be laughed at than titillating. That said, there are heavy fanservice elements. It's on the line, but I think it's on the sex comedy side.

[up] Same here. "Easy to laugh at, hard to fap."

Edit: I've read all of it. What I said still applies.

Until further notice
I haven't read or followed this, but from what scattered information I've seen online, it gets worse. Someone who's read the later chapters will have to comment on those, unfortunately.
Not a substitute for a formal medical consultation.
The parts I read were sex comedy. I didn't finish it though.

I got it from a hentai site. That said, I didn't get what I wanted...

Agreeing that it's borderline, but I have to say I'm on the "no" side of the fence—so close to your side that we can actually shake hands. Yeah, the protagonist "doesn't have sex", but that usually manifests in him engaging in sexual activities without ejaculation.

The words above are to be read as if they are narrated by Morgan Freeman.

Concurring with what One More and shimaspawn said. It's most definitely on the sex comedy side of things.

I voted to "keep", simply because this struck me more like Tarot "sexual themes, some nudity here and there, no explicit sex" than Cherry Comics "couple page set up then explicit sex for the rest of the issue".

After reading for several volumes, it struck me as very raunchy, but not porn.

It's really more in line with something like Ménage à 3 in terms of content. Nothing too bad, but on the line in places. Explicit sex isn't even really what makes something porn. This one has too much plot and too much focus on humour to really fall into the porn category.

From what I remember there's some heavy sexual stuff going on but yeah I think it was intended to be comedic.

Isn't one of the main characters a little girl? That could be problematic.

No, one of the characters is a flat chested adult who complains about her chest. That's not the same thing. At least if you're talking about Elyse. She's just flat.

"Easy to laugh at, hardpractically impossible to fap." Fix'd.

Yeah, I first came across it in a Hentai aggregator. There's no way in hell this story is porn. It's just too silly and the art is really not intended to be arousing.

@shima Oh ok

It's been years since I read it so my memory is faulty

Since we did keep Tarot, I think it's relevant to mention that My Balls has far less in the way of nudity from the few volumes I've read than Tarot did. And so far no ghosts who eternally bleed from their vaginas. (Though the protagonist in My Balls does have a demonically possessed testicle, so that particular part of the comparison may be a wash.)

Bitter person in the shadows....
Oh god, I remember seeing this a long time ago. All I can recall is a villain pulling a Baby Trap on the protagonist to trick him into marrying her.

I honestly have no clue about this otherwise, but if Tarot can stay (and that had nearly a whole issue's worth of female frontal nudity for no reason), then I suppose this can too.

Well, there goes my desire to ever read Tarot.

Anyway, I'm giving this an angel vote, but a recommendation to clean the page. Where's that cleanup thread, again?

Resolved as "keep but clean". Nice work.
Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
