Oh Joy Sex Toy began in 2013 with a simple comic reviewing one of the most popular sex toys out there -- the Magic Wand Original, a vibrator of much renown. From there, the comic has spiraled out to cover every subject related to sex in a joyful, informative, and very funny manner.

Erika Moen's popular webcomic Oh Joy Sex Toy has been going strong since 2013, but there's still so much to be learned about sex, bodies, and of course the titular sex toys. For the sake of all of our continuing educations, Oh Joy Sex Toy, Vol. 3 is out in print next week, from Oni Comics' Limerence Press imprint.
Co-written by Moen's husband Matthew Nolan, this 312-page book discusses sex from all angles, covering swinging, foreskins, queer porn production and more, in addition to the sex toy reviews that give the comic its name. In fact, this 13-page preview has a lot to teach you about UTIs, HPV, and vaginismus. And they really display how much fun Moen and Nolan can make even the most uncomfortable of topics.
What a week! I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to sit back and read some comics. The weekend is finally here, and the world can relax and rest once more — but the comics industry has been busy too, you know, and the last seven days have seen a flurry of comics-based news and announcements fly past at high speed.
ComicsAlliance has got your back, though: when it comes to comics, we never slow down, so here’s a look back and just what’s been going on. New comics, new stories, new podcasts, new art being made — it’s all part of the ComicsAlliance Weekender!

When's the last time you got six art books for five bucks?
Well, here's your chance. Portland, Oregon-based Periscope Studios' new Kickstarter, "Maiden Voyage," offers six 32-page art books by artists Erika Moen, Ron Randall, Paul Guinan, David Hahn, Natalie Nourigat and Ben Dewey, and all donors have to contribute to get PDFs of all six is a fiver. A $50 donation will even get contributors print copies of the six books. That is, provided the project meets its $25,000 funding goal.
It always feels a bit like summertime in the Land of Ooo, what with Finn, Jake and all of their friends more or less having no proper careers or schooling to slog through, but Boom!
