Praise for OH JOY SEX TOY:
“A great and hilarious resource—some of the best sex ed out there!” Dan Savage (Savage Love, It Gets Better Project)
“The surprise is how compulsively readable Erika Moen’s wonderful tour of the wonderful world of wonderful toys is—she’s like a naughty Leonard Maltin set loose in an adults-only episode of Jackass. Sex positive AND comics positive. My two favorites.” Matt Fraction (Sex Criminals)
“But what really makes Oh Joy, Sex Toy special—not just in the world of gadgets but the world of sex—is how, well, joyful it is. Rather than the mechanical monotony of most pornography or the clinical detachment of so much sex education, Moen’s comics are funny, charming, even sweet. Everyone she depicts in sexual situations seem to be having a fantastic time—smiling, joking, and sometimes literally high-fiving.” WIRED
“It is written and drawn with such gosh-darn sweet enthusiasm by Erika Moen (with the occasional guest-shot from husband Matthew, who provides a dude’s perspective) that even if your tastes are tamer than Moen’s, I think you’ll find it a perfectly wonderful read.” BoingBoing
“Our parents had The Joy of Sex, we have the next generation of totally balls-out (and vulva-out!) candidness in Oh Joy Sex Toy!! Oh Joy Sex Toy is sui generis… there may not be a book in print simultaneously this honest, this educational, and THIS HILARIOUS.” Amanda Palmer (The Dresden Dolls)
“Erika Moen’s Oh Joy Sex Toy is a revolution in laughter and a hardcore exploration of the orgasm. It’s a refreshingly frank comic strip about vaginas, sex toys and human sexuality.” The Daily Beast
“Erika Moen is f******* amazing and Oh Joy Sex Toy will change your life for the better.” Emily Nagoski, PhD, author of the New York Times Best Seller Come As You Are
“It’s still mighty rare in the worlds we live in, to find sex information for those of any age, that is complete and holistic, fun without being flippant, sexy without being smug. Where even sound factual information about parts of sex thought to be un-sexy by a lot of people (like infections and contraception or economics) still has a giant jet stream of pleasure and joy running through it all. But Erika Moen and Matthew Nolan get it. And Oh Joy Sex Toy gives it.” Heather Corinna, Founder of Scarleteen.com
“[…] Oh Joy Sex Toy is more than just ‘sex positive’—it’s sex enthusiastic, sex euphoric, sex giddy.” The Portland Mercury
