I don't think it's Black Hat saying the title text but someone else in line. However, I'm not sure so I'm hesitant to edit it. 15:54, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

I think the point is not about offending the backscatter operator, but more about men not wanting others to view their genitals in the flaccid state. Many men have self-esteem issues about genital size, and would be eager to take a pill that would make them appear larger before exposing themselves in that way. 05:29, 2 May 2014 (UTC)

$20 a pill for a now-generic (Pfizer's patent expired in mid-2014) medication is a bit steep, yes? (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Not sure how that is in any way relevant, since the comic is from 2010. Are you suggesting that Randall on a regular basis should go back and adjust all his comics for inflation and other market developments? 22:35, 5 October 2014 (UTC)
Plus, Black Hat is probably not overmuch concerned with providing a fair price. It's like the vending machines at amusement parks that charge $5 for a bottle of water. -- 20:42, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

Backscattering fetish must be a subset of X-ray porn (which exists - no, really). 11:15, 16 October 2014 (UTC)

I don't know what I expected. I googled it. 18:11, 28 April 2015 (UTC)BK201

Explanation was convinced men would want to do this just to resist the system, I find there's a more obvious and definite reason so I put that in, and kept the previous as an alternate (while less likely) explanation. Maybe I just understand psychology better, maybe it's that I remember the night my brother and his buddy tried to fill in as strippers at a bachelorette party and had a certain form of stage fright. :) NiceGuy1 (talk) 04:08, 18 March 2018 (UTC)
