Am I really the only one who has noted the nude pinup on the wall behind Ahshu ? There is more of the pinup on the next pages, clearly its a female nude with XOXO kisses written on it!

I do believe Ahshu is a bit of a player!

Well, when it comes to Copulation debauchery the Raharr has hit a freaking goldmine!

So go planetside and enjoy the nightclubs!

You're not the first one to notice the poster, but you're the first one to notice an autograph for Ahshu on it.

I laughed so hard. First because the two Raharr "discover that the 'net is full of porn. Second because all ? most? alien races 'net are the same.

Do not take their network as a representative sample of how they copulate; a lot of what's there is impractical, not pleasurable in practice, or downright physically impossible.

LOL. Question is. Are they surprised, because they find that 'weird' or because "I thought only our species did it like that"

As a very wise grim reaper once said: "I have immeasurable faith in humanity's capacity for perversion."

Look, our porn is raharrizing us in the eyes of a potentially hostile alien, right now!

Garovel from The Zombie Knight, page 823.

Well, the internet was fueled by young men's desires to see pretty pictures. Women just wanted to read stories of billionaire vampire pirates. With a dash of werewolves.

Shoot porn is why we got VHS instead of the superior Betamax. But never mind that, that was just one of the opening shots in the technology wars that was driven by porn.

That wasn't Betamax's problem, at least not directly. Sony kept Betamax technology proprietary and was slow off the mark making a movie-length tape, while JVC freely licensed out VHS technology and started out with 2-hour tapes. Betamax wound up stuck with a reputation for being more expensive, less available and needing more tape changes for the same recording length, and had pretty much already lost the race by the time they shook it off.

Well well, seems like someone are spreading a myth :-)
“Only” about 5-15 % of the internet is about “copulation” according to most recent estimates, so hardly a majority…

5-15% of the total nodes, number of visitors, time spent online, traffic volume, or what?

From what I cloud find out by looking into this, I think pretty much all of that is between 5% and 15% (there is a pretty big difference between 5% and 15% after all)

Depends on how you count and what you count. For instance: Children are the byproduct of copulation. Marriage is the societal construct created to determine who is allowed to copulate with whom. Romance is how people people are enticed to copulate. Dancing, sports, fashion, etc. is about making you look like a better copulation partner. When you start digging a bit, you can make just about anything be about copulation.

Well, I am fairly sure that copulation in this context is just meant to be another word for porn…
But it is of course possible that I am wrong

There are so many great expressions in this comic.

The alien expressions are just fantastic. Alas, not so much for the humans so far, or at least, not as memorable I feel. Perhaps I see too many of them on a daily basis.

I don't know, I think some of the human expressions can be pretty funny. Say the second panel on this page:

The first soldier is like "oh my god, I'm falling!" and the second guy is totally cool with it.

They're still in-system, which means they haven't found 4chan yet.

TRIVIA
Before becoming a webcomic, Leaving The Cradle was initially developed as a modification for Source engine, back in 2007. It was vastly different back then, much closer to the usual space opera look and feel, and the plot had nothing in common with the webcomic version, sharing only one character.
