Oh Joy, Sex Toy, Vol. 3

Erika Moen and Matthew Nolan. Oni, $29.99 trade paper (312p) ISBN 978-1-62010-361-6
Who knew vibrators could be so adorable? In the third print collection of their cheerfully randy webcomic, spouses Moen and Nolan review sex toys of all shapes, sizes, and power settings. Their cartoon doppelgangers cheer for the successes and throw side-eye at the occasional failures. (One review opens with cartoon Moen simply repeating “What” as she struggles to figure out where the latest piece of silicone is supposed to go.) With trips to porn studios and swingers’ parties, frank sex tips, and medical information on STIs, foreskins, and genital development, the creators expand their sex-positive agenda to topics ranging from fun and cheeky to potentially life-saving. Sexy times are illustrated with characters who have a wide range of genders, orientations, and body types, and Moen’s fluid, bouncy brushwork makes the brashest nudity look cute. The book finishes with a selection of erotic comics by guest artists. Like good sex, it’s goofy fun that might just make the reader’s life better. (Sept.)
