“Virginity” is an out-dated, sexist, heterocentric concept that exists to determine a (cisgender) woman’s value and worth. Being sexually active is about physical intimacy in ALL of its forms, PENIS IN VAGINA is not the be-all, end-all of sex acts.
You’ve got SO MANY virginities and you can share them with SO MANY different people in different ways (If that appeals to you, if you don’t feel that urge that’s totally cool and natural too!)
AND! THIS weekend, May 11-12, Dylan Meconis and I are going to be exhibiting at the Toronto Comics and Arts Festival in Canada!

You guys, I cannot even begin to articulate how excited I am about debuting my new, weekly review comic, Oh Joy, Sex Toy.
Today is the culmination of four months of preparing, researching, interviewing, website-building, affiliate-courting and, of course, comic-making and I just could not be happier with the results. I truly feel this is my best work.
So… what is this all about?
Oh Joy, Sex Toy (OJST) is a weekly comic that updates every Tuesday to bring you reviews of everything that relates to sex, sexuality and the sex industry. From toys to workshops to birth control and much more, no stone will be left unturned, no vibrator left unused, no nipple left unpinched. With the aid of guest reviewers, this comic will cover products for ALL the different anatomies people posses, from vulvas to penises and beyond. OJST strives to be relevant to all different genders, body types, and sexualities.
DANG! Exciting! I hope you enjoy :)
(Credit to Amy T. Falcone for coming up with the title and Scott Kurtz for inventing “A celebration of fornication” You guys are better at this than I am.)
Woo-hoo, Next weekend it’s the 10th Anniversary of the Stumptown Comics Fest! Not only have I attended at every single one (starting as a wee 19-year-old visiting Portland on a break from my freshman year of college) since it began in the lobby of a church, but this year is extra special because they are honoring me as a Special Guest.

But the biggest and bestest news is that this Friday… I’ll be debuting my new weekly comic! Oh yes! April will conclude with the release of my weekly sex toy review comic! I’m so excited to be throwing myself headlong into illustrating my favorite subjects: sex, sexuality and everything related to the sex industry. There’ll be toy reviews, event coverage, interviews with sex industry professionals and maybe a little sex ed thrown in for good measure. Want a sneak peek? YOU GOT IT.
