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 TWO is a hefty 328 pages of comics by Erika Moen and Matthew Nolan. This volume collects the second year's worth of content from the weekly comic OH JOY SEX TOY, covering all kinds of sex topics in the form of toy reviews, education pieces, interviews and more. With its positivity, terrible puns and diverse cast, OH JOY SEX TOY is an indispensable resource for anybody exploring comics or their own sexuality. In addition to Erika and Matthew's work, almost a third of the book is dedicated to other comics artists, adding other unique voices and perspectives. The book also features never-before-seen bonus comics 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!
