Oh Joy Sex Toy webcomic wins our hearts
Okay, we seriously can’t get enough of Oh Joy Sex Toy, a new webcomic from cartoonist Erika Moen! True, it’s all about sex toys, so we were bound to love it. But Moen is both excessively talented and a Portlander!
Tackling sexuality in her comics is not new to Moen, as evidenced by her past works “Silver Bullet” (the tale of her first vibrator), “GirlFuck” (an illustrated guide to “girl-on-girl lovin'”), and her “patron saint of the Hitachi” illustration which graces the walls of Chicago’s Early to Bed. But Oh Joy Sex Toy as a comic will be uniquely focused on sexuality issues:
Oh Joy Sex Toy (OJST) is a weekly comic that debuted April 2013 and updates every Tuesday to bring you reviews of everything that relates to sex, sexuality and the sex industry. From toys to workshops to birth control and much more, no stone will be left unturned, no vibrator left unused, no nipple left unpinched. With the aid of guest reviewers, this comic will cover products for ALL the different anatomies people posses, from vulvas to penises and beyond. OJST strives to be relevant to all different genders, body types, and sexualities.
Thus far, Moen has written about her love for the Hitachi Magic Wand (err, just the Magic Wand now), her experience at a Disney-themed edition of Queens of the Pole, her affinity for Pink silicone lube, and her husband’s experience with a Fleshlight. Every week, it’s been a delight to see which topic/toy is covered, and the comics are always adorable, amusing, and informative. Plus, those Anal Safety Snails may just be the best cartoon characters ever.
Keep your eyes peeled for new editions of Oh Joy Sex Toy each Tuesday. The comic is being serialized over at Bitch as well. You can follow Erika Moen on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and her main site.
