Savita Bhabhi and the Travelling Bra Salesman

Is this the first Indian porn comic strip, perhaps?

The storyline is immensely corny, but I don’t think that’s a problem in this particular genre. My favourite bit is when the bra salesman goesThank You, Thank You, Thank You GOD!” Heh.

(Link via a reader who wishes to remain unnamed, and writes: “DO NOT hat tip me for this.” WTF?

And obviously this is NSFW. Like, duh…)
