[edit] Explanation

Porn for Women is a popular illustrated humor book that features exactly what the comic says.

There is an opinion that women especially dislike blunt porn that objectifies the people involved in the intercourse. The authors of the book follows this line, presenting no sex but several images of extremely attractive men performing household chores. Megan objects to this, stating that her porn contains sex.

Galactica is the ship from the show Battlestar Galactica. Megan likely has a romantic attraction to some of the characters on the show, possibly involving "shipping" fanfiction.

[Megan continues typing.]
Megan: So I wanted to write in to clarify: in my porn,
[Megan leans forward in her chair.]
Megan: People fuck.

Note that the original transcript says "Woman", not "Megan". In 507: Experimentation it says "Female", not "Megan". There is no reason to think that both women are the same person. 19:27, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

Correct, there isn't; however, "Megan" doesn't necessarily refer to the same person in xkcd transcripts, it's just the generic name given to this style of stick figure. Also, not all people named "Megan" in real life are the same person :P. Hppavilion1 (talk) 01:48, 23 November 2016 (UTC)
