Probably the most well-known NSFW webcomic, but it should definitely be part of any list. Oglaf is a fantasty themed comic about sex and magic. It contains a mix of ongoing storylines and recurring characters interspaced with one-off comics about whatever the author thinks is funny. The central premise is usually “how does sex interact with magic,” but as the strip has gone on it has become more varied, and there are often strips that are about the humour of a fantastic world in general, without necessarily being NSFW. The art is great and it features a wide range of genders, sexual preferences and races. Body diversity is probably the comic’s weakest point — there is some, but it’s not as common as other forms of diversity. Oglaf is easy to jump into, since a lot of the strips are stand-alone comics, but it’s also worth reading through from the start.There’s a surprising amount of development for some of the recurring characters — Kronar the Barbarian and Grier the mercenary are perhaps my favourite examples. The longest-running story so far focused mostly on Ivan, the apprentice of a powerful ruler known as Mistress. Though finished and unlikely to be resumed, Ivan’s story highlighted much of what makes Oglaf enjoyable. The focus of the story was on Ivan’s attempts to circumvent Mistress’ prohibition on sex or masturbation. The humour came not from the idea of sex as an act, but from the interactions of the characters and their differing attitudes and motivations. For example, in the series of strips entitled “Cockhunt” Mistress offers Ivan sex, then magically removes his cock and hides it, forcing him to search for it before they can continue. The ultimate punchline, that he finds it too late but comforts himself with auto-fellatio, says more about Ivan’s attitude to disappointment and relationships than it does about his sexual preferences. Other stories play with fantastic tropes, like “Wolf!,” which is a refrain on the Boy Who Cried Wolf, or “Noblesse Oblige,” which plays with the Sword in the Stone myth. What really makes Oglaf tick is that it appeals as much to your inner nerd as to your libido. Definitely worth checking out.

Curvy describes itself as “a sexy sci-fi adventure comic for adults.” But it is SO MUCH MORE. It’s a magical trip through a very dirty, creative subconscious. The main characters (at first) are Fauna and Anais. Fauna is a “Liar” from Candy World, meaning that she is a magician, a very sexy magician. Anais is a nonmagical being from Boring World, so basically just one of us. And they have some sexy encounters.

The story follows them, and a whole huge cast of other characters, through multiple universes, sexcapades, and adventures. I love the fluid sexuality, the diverse cast (there’s a woman, Susie, who wears a hijab and is just as sexual as everyone else), and how incredibly raunchy the whole story is. Oh, and the art is absolutely fabulous in its black and white simplicity.

Chester 5000 by Jess FinkChester 5000 XYV

Updates Once or Twice a month

Chester 5000 XYV is the very first webcomic that I’ve read in its entirety. Before this, I’d only read random updates, ignoring context and continuing storylines (I mean, who really even needs to understand what they’re reading?). But now, I’ve turned over a new leaf (HA! Get it? No real pages?); I’ve bookmarked almost 10 webcomics that I plan to read next and it’s all thanks to one Victorian sex robot.

Chester 5000 is a long running steamy (see what I did with ‘steamy’ there? Steam-powered? Science!) robot comic set in the Victorian Era. Robert, an absorbed scientist, is married to Pricilla, your average Victorian woman with an insatiable sexual appetite. Unable to satisfy his wife, who grows more troubled by his inattention by the day, he builds a robot to keep her company. Chester does everything; he cleans the house, makes tea, and provides hours of clitoral stimulation.

This comic could have been bad; it could have been REALLY bad. I mean, busy scientist is annoyed of “doting wife,” so he builds a robot to distract her? Doesn’t sound very promising. Add in the expectation of uptight Victorian views of sex, especially women having sex, and yeah… I think you understand. What you don’t understand (at least not yet), is how wrong any of those assumptions would be.

Pricilla is drawn with such amazing sexual agency; she knows what she likes and she pursues it without guilt. I loved watching her develop into a character that is comfortable in her sexual appetite and, also, unafraid to experiment (which is not a necessary aspect of sexual agency, but definitely fun to see in the comic). What’s especially awesome about this comic is that all of this is communicated almost entirely without words. I love that I’m able to imagine what a character might be thinking and feeling at any particular moment.

Without giving too much away, I will say that nothing is what it seems. Every character, including those introduced later (Isabelle, George, and… Chesty), develop into complex people with multiple motivations and a wide variety of emotions. They are portrayed as real people with wants and needs that fluctuate. I’m excited to see what the next update has in store (more gender and race diversity, please!!).

So, if you like looking at lots of nice illustrations of people falling in love, having sex, and doing both with cool robots, this is definitely the comic for you.

Oh Joy Sex Toy Erika MoenOh Joy Sex Toy
Erika Moen & Matthew Nolan
Updates Tuesdays
NSFW

Oh Joy Sex Toy is less of a serial webcomic and more of an illustrated review site for all that is erotic goodness. What I really enjoy about Erika and Matthew’s comic is that it removes some of the mystery and apprehension from adult topics. The comic is drawn in a refreshing, fun way that keeps the topics from being too gritty. It just makes things feel more informative and matter-of-fact; that there’s nothing to be afraid of, as long as you have some knowledge. They cover a range of subjects, such as adult toys, general sexual health, kinks and fetishes, and community hot topics. What I really appreciate is that they keep things varied and diverse. They often will mention if sites or services cater to or have a lack of sexual and racial diversity, which gives fair warning to anyone interested. They are also unbiased in their reviews of products — they disclose if products were given to them for review, and they do not let this sway their review. There have been times where a donated review product didn’t match up to their expectations and they didn’t hesitate to let us know it, which is always appreciated. For me, it’s a good stop for ideas and new territory in a friendly, fun finish.

    I picked up the print edition of Chester 5000 XYV a couple TCAFs ago but still haven’t read it. Now I’m kicking myself for waiting so long. And Oh Joy Sex Toy has been on my wishlist since I first heard about it.
