Nice juxtapose.

Also curious where this is going over the next week.

So, and I'm probably going to get a lot of flake for asking this, is there a part of this district with male stripers and escorts? And if not, then why not?

Other than the meta-answer that Tat doesn't think women can stoop that low, I think the Devil (like any corporate overlord) wants to be as cheap and effective as possible. If enslaving all women to lure all men damns them both, why go out of his way to do the reverse?

But wouldn't it be better business sense to have a product for multiple demographics and not just one demographic?

Because it would be better business sense to have a product for multiple demographics and not just one.

Not if a certain demographic doesn't want the product, or the company cannot gain from providing it. The setup the Devil has at the moment seems to damn just about everyone, which is his goal. Why waste resources branching out when the only members of society that aren't a part of his pre-existing system are the ones opposing him. The female strippers can't afford (or probably want) male escorts, and the only women we've seen who don't work in the sex industry in recent years are the ones who live "off-the-grid" (or work for the Devil directly). Why try to target them, it would be like smoking companies trying to advertise to lung-cancer support groups.

Besides, i'm still holding out for the reveal that the Devil is funding the Sisterhood, Senator Palpatine style.

A good question.

I'd go out on a limb and say that Tat currently views non-heterosexual sexuality as being another victim of the Patriarchy. True, in the real world homosexuality exist and is being abused for monetary purposes, but this is #Tatverse, not the real world.

In #Tatverse, it's the Patriarchy that is the antagonist. Shades of grey, fee!. As such, all men must be pigs or be corrupted by Devil and turned into pigs. No other options allowed. The simplicity makes the message clearer, the other side of the coin being Tat looks preachy and overly simplistic. That is his privilege as creator of Sinfest.

Because it's a webcomic and not an economy simulator.

Actually, that's a good point. I didn't consider the homosexuals. Although since God of the old Testament exists in this world, it's possible they are already going to hell by default, no need for an industry to lure them in.
