Do you feel intrigued? Titillated? If you’re embarrassed… don’t be! Moen and husband Matt use playful art, a diverse cast, and an admittedly pink palette to, yes, review sex toys – but also to clearly and comfortably explore sex practices, sexual health, and good communication. The cover reads “sex toy,” but this is all about empowerment, affirmation, education, and fun!
Erika & Matthew think the world of sex is pretty rad. Using humor and research, their awesome comics are about everything that relates to sex. They review sex toys, share sex education, interview sex workers, and crack horrible, horrible puns, all in the name of promoting sex positivity. In this third volume they visit a swingers’ house party, a queer porn set and cover all sorts of topics like HPV, foreskins and UTIs, in addition to the newest and oddest sex toys. Each volume is a unique dive into the world of sex, making this book a great standalone addition to your shelf whether you’re already read the rest of the series or this is your introduction.
About the Author
Erika Moen is a veteran of nearly 20 years in the comics industry. She is best known for her autobiographical story DAR! A Super Girly Top Secret Comic Diary and the sex toy review/sex education series Oh Joy Sex Toy. Her work focuses on sex, sexuality, identity, and fart jokes. She lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband and creative partner Matthew Nolan.
Matthew Nolan is wise beyond his years. He's been helping make sex education comics for the past five years and still looks great doing it. He lives in Portland with his wife Erika Moen, and cat Flapjack, who doesn't contribute to the comics at all, despite living off of the proceeds. Lazy, if you ask me. Matt's almost entirely grey, despite only being in his 30s!
