Top 11 Most Disturbing MLP:FiM Fandoms (#5)

Is anyone honestly shocked that it exists?
This is the internet. And as we all know, the internet is for porn. And according to Rule #34, if it exists, there’s porn for it. My Little Pony exists; therefore, there’s porn for it.
And no, I’m not going to display any examples on this list—not because I don’t want to, or even because I have a problem with it (more on that later), but because I don’t feel I can do so and maintain a clean conscience.
But if you’re curious, by all means, perform a Google image search with SafeSearch off. If you’re feeling adventurous, check out some of the more raunchy sites like Rule 34. Heck, there are entire sites dedicated to this stuff like Ponibooru or Equestria After Dark.
And quite honestly, I don’t have a problem with it. If you’ve been around the internet like I have, you learn to expect stuff like this, and if you’re the type that’s easily offended by it, well, that’s what mature filters are for.
But as for me, I’m not that bothered by it. In fact, one of my favorite artists, Johnjoseco, has been known to create art on his Love Tommorow Love blog that's "Not Safe For Work" (or NSFW).
For example, the following picture has an alternate NSFW version (which I won't be linking to):

He can get away with drawing porn for two reasons: first, he’s an excellent artist; and two, when he draws it, he always draws characters who can be reasonably assumed to be over the age of consent, and he always portrays them as human. So at least when he draws it, there’s a level of class and taste.
But then there are artists like Megasweet.
Before I completely rip him a new asshole, let me start by saying that his art style is quite interesting, and at least 10 percent of his gallery (and that’s being generous) is okay to look at.
As with Johnjoseco, the following image by Megasweet also has an alternate NSFW version (which I also won't be linking to):

The other 90 percent, however, just makes me feel unclean, like I need a shower after looking at them—and I don’t even feel clean after that!
While Johnjoseco maintains some level of taste with his porn, Megasweet does not. If Johnjoseco is Playboy, Megasweet is Hustler. Pure smut. No class. No taste. No standards. No shame.
Even his non-pornographic images tend to cross the line. Take for instance Futashy, a series of drawings where Fluttershy is a pet to Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie. Yeah, strange consistency: some of the characters are animals (Fluttershy, Big Macintosh, and Spike) who are owned as pets by the other characters depicted as humans (Rainbow Dash, Apple Jack, and Twilight Sparkle).

The misadventures of a pet Fluttershy and her owners is an interesting concept to say the least, sort of along the lines of Garfield or Marmaduke, and it would be decent if not for one major problem: as the name implies, Fluttershy is a futanari.
What’s that you ask? You don’t know what a futanari is?
Good. Spare your innocence and never find out!
No. Seriously. Don’t look it up.
Stop going to the Google bar!
Okay, you really want to know? Fine!
How do I describe this without actually describing it?
I know: here’s a Ray William Johnson song.
Yes, truly disturbing to say the least.
But at least like other porn, Megasweet’s “art” can easily be ignored with mature filters. And to his credit, at least most of the characters he draws can be reasonably assumed to be over the age of consent.
The key word there being “most of the characters.”
You see, I could easily shrug off MegaSweet as another Pony pervert if it weren’t for one reason—one reason I feel cannot be ignored, or even should be ignored.
Three words: Cutie. Mark. Crusaders.

That’s right: MegaSweet has drawn pornography of Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle, and Scootaloo—three clearly under-aged characters.
Do I even need to explain everything wrong with that?
And I don’t even know what’s worse: the art where they’re depicted as human, or the art where they’re depicted as ponies. Either way, it’s still pedophilia—or rather, pedofillya! This is the type of art that should get MegaSweet a visit from Chris Hansen, not thousands of fans.
And for any Megasweet fanboys out there, please spare me the “but they’re just fictional characters” defense. Fictional or not, an underaged minor is still an underaged minor, and pornography featuring them is still child pornography, which, last time I checked, is illegal. (And while we’re on the subject, so is bestiality!)
If you get your rocks hard over cartoon ponies, fine! That’s your fetish. I’m not here to judge you for it. But when you start drooling over underage filly flank, please keep it between yourself and your psychiatrist! By all means spare the internet! And spare those poor little fillies!
How disturbing is it? As disturbing as seeing your next door neigbor on How To Catch A Predator.
