JotMK #4 - Earlobe elongation & embroidered balls
Caoimhe & MJ discuss the fourth chapter of Journey to the West, in which Sun Wukong demands a promotion.
As usual expect fights and violence throughout the episode and the episode also has some digressions that briefly touch on phrenology between 20:15 and 22:47 and a joke about BDSM sex practises at 26:08 and 28:00 .

I forgot about it while recording the episode but embroidered balls specifically as a courtship ritual will show up again in a future chapter.
