Slug Life

A day in the life of Tanya, a curious woman who has developed a taste for home made non humanoid lovers. Her recent experiment sees the creation of a beautifully proportioned giant slug. Has she finally found the formula for the perfect partner? And if so, can they even survive in this gnarly world of freaks and beefs?
