Episode 105 - The Book Of Adonitology: The Sacred Pentadon of the Adonitology Religion by King Adonis

88 minutes

We review a religious text this week! Lured in by the promise of a faith focused on big-assed women and body positivity, we find ourselves deceived by a man who uses women as a prop to try to convince readers to worship him.

The Book of Adonitology's summary tells us that it is, "one of the most influential books in the history of literature, recognized as one of the greatest literary master pieces of its time." Its Best Sellers Ranking of 1,551,929 says otherwise - that's an approximate sales rate of a whopping 3 books per month.

Content Warnings: Aside from our usual barnyard language, we've got: religious cults, sex cults, homophobia, transphobia, antiquated racial slurs, enslavement/torture, and the sexualization of women with large butts.
