Apart from somebody mistaking Monica for Linda Blair (?!), The Agents of Lust were really the most entertaining part of our visit to Mad Monster Arizona 2017. Granted, we really didn’t get to see any of the other events and Q&A sessions. After an encounter with an irate supervisor and a good 20 minute wait to even get into the place, we finally were able to get the wristbands and come back into the event site. By that point, the event was all but closed for the night, but t
