Whores of Mensa was an anthology, founded by Jeremy Dennis, (Sacha) Mardou, and Lucy Sweet, edited by Mardou, built on her desire to have an underground anthology which allowed creators room to stretch instead of trying to cram as many creators into an issue as possible.[1] Lucy Sweet left after issue 1 after having a baby.

Issue 5 abandoned the original "few creators" ethos for a "Grand Party" issue. After issue 5, the title evolved into The Strumpet.
