    I saw this a while ago on twitter and thought someone else would have brought it up by now me but I guess it’s up to me to lower the tone: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Pink-Dwarf-Infinity-Welcomes-Drivers-ebook/dp/B01IMJYUTM/

    DICK BUSH.

    The writer’s not really called Dick Bush.

    It’s a gestalt pseudonym, for Fat Dick and Hairy Bush.

    The crew are all exotic dancers and we meet Deb Lister, who is caught by her Manager, Reginald Rimmer sucking off customers in the private booths! She’s sent to stasis for the rest of the ship’s tour without pay.

    I see they’ve remained faithful to the original text. I’m sure Grant Naylor would have approved.

    Dirty pop quiz – identify the three penetrative sex scenes in real, official Red Dwarf and where they are to be found.

    Last Human, Backwards (novel) and Back in the Red?

    I discounted Back In The Red as it is only implied. Also didn’t count AR games or the offscreen sex in Parallel Universe. Or the vending machine in X. Oh yes, I thought this one through.

    But you are correct, and there are two (arguably three if you count the ending) in Last Human, and one in Backwards. All are rapes. Oh, that wacky Red Dwarf!

    Is Dick Bush canon?!

    I wonder if Pink Dwarf contains as many gaping holes!

    Etc.!

    I’m impressed he included a reference to the VHS releases.

    By virtue of seeing the synopsis of the second volume (yes, there’s a second volume) on Tumblr, I have discovered that the computer in these books is called “Hab”.

    Give the guy credit, he knows his RD lore.

    Of course, they’re *all* white holes by the time I’ve finished with them, Stew.

    For my money, no-one writes a sex scene like Rob Grant.

    Like you’ve not read them a billion times before. Grab your handy andies on the way.

    Cappsy was living and working in the United States when Pink Dwarf was first published. And it wasn’t until 2016 on a return to the UK that switching libraries one night he came in the midde of this book, clearly an erotica, and at once to his horror and outrage what he thought he saw was a ripoff of Women Love Girth

    I’m very hesitant to reply to this, since discussing the particulars of sexual encounters in Red Dwarf spin off media is one step away from keeping peoples hair in jars, but how do you figure that?

    Backwards is implied to be consensual (if terrifying and ending as badly as it’s possible for any consensual encounter to end) while Last Human has two encounters between Lister and Kochanski, and one between Lister and a GELF.

    I’ll give you Lister and the GELF, and the first Lister/Kochanski encounter (since once she realised it wasn’t her version of Lister it would have been awful) but that brings us to 2/4.

    Christ, I’ve just done a statistical analysis on the consensual nature of sexual encounters in Red Dwarf novels, time to log off the net for the night I think.

    Ha. I didn’t include the end of Last Human in that.

    It was basically a gag, but re: Backwards:
    (i) following the Cat’s perspective, the woman Cat has sex with is unaware he has a barbed cat penis which will tear through her genitalia, which would define non-consensual activity;
    (ii) following the logic of Backworld, she first screams for help, then the Cat begins by violently assaulting her, then has enthusiastic sex with her.

    Hey, Red Dwarf fans, if the Cat goes regularly into a catatonic heat as per his species, a member of the ship’s number would have to awkwardly wank him off to stop his agony. If the author of Pink Dwarf is reading, have that one on me.

    Hey Darrell. Cat is Felix sapiens isn’t he, so it’s hard to know for sure but he’s probably got it covered.

    Perhaps we should do a Scuttercast review?
