Warning: Content May Offend. It's a saucy late-night special edition of Frontseat.

Oliver Driver chats with photographer Fiona Pardington and Chief Censor Bill Hastings about women, porn and art, including:

- A preview of 'Anatomy of Hell' - the latest film to raise the ire of the Society for the Promotion of Community Standards

- An up close and really, really personal chat with artist Siren Maclaine

- And a perverse makeover for Nana's innocent old crocheted tablecloth - the craft artists who are getting naughty with needles

Also, saucy chanteuse Ciara Mulholland and street-smart beat poet Craig Ireson introduce us to their Word Festival.
