Thoughts on Risqué Cosplay 

Every day, it seems like more and more cosplayers decide to (perhaps unwittingly) take the plunge into some form of sex work. No, I don’t mean flat out prostitution, I mean more along the lines of creating softcore, cosplay themed pornography in the form of lewd photosets and...
