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!
OH JOY SEX TOY: VOLUME ONE is 268 pages of comics by Erika Moen and Matthew Nolan about sex, sex toy reviews, sexuality, sex education, safer sex practices, interviews with sex industry workers, AND MORE. Volume One collects the first year's worth of content from the weekly comic OH JOY SEX TOY. Combining helpful facts with terrible puns and the occasional Star Trek joke, Volume One is an indispensable resource for fans of sex, fans of comics, and nerds of all stripes. It also features the comics of nearly a dozen other cartoonists, plus brand new comics made exclusively for the book and behind-the-scenes content!
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!
