My Top 7 NSFW Web Comics
I this is a ranking of my seven favorite web comics. All of these comics are NSFW and cover a wide spectrum of topics in sexuality. Each has beautiful art, great jokes, engaging characters and more often than not, very sexy. I've included brief descriptions of each along with a link to the first comic in the series (or archive) to start your reading journey.
7. Chester 5000 XYV

Chester 5000 XYV by Jess Fink is a romance story with characters exploring sexuality in the Victorian Age. This is the only web comic on the list that is finished telling its story. It ran from August 2008 through January 2016. It begins with a husband making a robot and his wife sneaking off to make love to it. When the husband finds out, the wife then makes a robot for him and her overzealous advances make for good comedy. Fink doesn't stray away from showing the mechanics of sex instead of implying it. The lady lovebot is the only character in the whole comic with dialogue. The rest of the characters communicate through their expressions or little pictures to represent speech. There are some great, complex relationships in Chester 5000 XYV. Sex isn't the only focus of the story, as it also deals with loneliness, ambition, greed, separation, death, love and reunions.
6. The Misadventures of Tobias and Guy

The Misadventures of Tobias and Guy by Daryl Toh Liem Zhan shows the relationship between Tobias the demon and Guy the human. It started in January 2015 and went into what appears to be a permanent hiatus in January 2016. Tobias appears in two forms, one as red demon complete with horns, wings, serpent tail and blue flame over his head, and a muscular human guy in a black tank top. The cast is all sweet and genuinely love each other. Diego, the psychic housemate can see ghosts, there's a four-eyed hellhound, Tobias' demon goat father, and an elderly lesbian neighbors. While the characters are often shirtless, their lovemaking is always implied instead of being shown, and is titillating in it's own way. There was one week that dealt with the issue of depression, but for the most part it is lighthearted love story. Zhan has loyal fans that submit their own art, and I hope he returns someday to continue with these character's lives.

Alfie is a medieval humpfest that first began it's run in July 2014. The author of this comic is called "Incase." I tried to find their real name, but it was all I could find. Alfie is a "halfling" like a hobbit, but without the hairy feet. She a young woman who is on a path of self-discovery and ends up having a lot of steamy sex. There is some graphic hardcore fucking in this comic so I wouldn't recommend reading this in a public place. Not every addition has sex, some deal with character development and something they can feel like can drag on for a while, but it is necessary to tell the story and interpersonal relationships. And after all the talking there are fantastic rewards for the readers.
4. The Rock Cocks

The Rock Cocks by Brad and Leslie Brown tell the Rock N' Roll sex adventure of Suria, Steg and their band, The Rock Cocks. In November 2014, the world was introduced to the band and their dreams of making it big in the music world. Suria sings and play guitar, and Steg plays the drums. They start out with humble origins living in their van, but after their set at a local club, their sexually charged lyrics spark the audience into an orgy. They get a record deal through Seth Sterling. Seth as a Thai lover named Georgie and an adoring assistant named Elizabeth (and he's completely oblivious to her infatuation.) Seth has enemies of his own in the record world, primarily Roxanne Richards, who we are just getting introduced to, so there's a lot of conflict coming approaching. The Rock Cocks is a good-humored sex romp and I'm excited to see what happens to the band.
3. You Suck

I recently came across You Suck by Josh L and it became one of my favorites right away. This comic started in July 2012 and tells the story of the stout, freckled ginger Anna, and her lanky succubus friend Izzy. This succubus is nourished through sex, and Anna discovers Izzy screwing her boring boyfriend in an alley. The two become quick friends, meeting men and screwing like crazy. One of the funny notes on the design style is that genitals (both men and women's) have little faces on them. There's a lot of references to pop culture and music, and Izzy uses music as a way to learn English. Her language is depicted as a variety of triangles, but she's learning. One of the things I like so much about You Suck is that the main character is a playful and has flaws and fears, making her personal and sexual advancements more rewarding. Like with Tobias and Guy, You Suck had dedicated fans sending in their fan art that gets included in posts from time to time.

Oglaf by Trudy Cooper and Doug Bayne is so amazingly I can't recommend this highly enough. It set in a mythical realm complete with all the classic tropes of the genre, mixed in with some of the funniest and sexiest material you could dream of. Much of the story at first followed the young and horny Apprentice serving the alluring and powerful Mistress, and the various challenges she has for him. To give you a taste of the beautiful insanity this comic has to offer, in the very first one the Apprentice jerks off and his cum comes to life and runs off to tell the Mistress. But the story has followed other characters and plotlines including mercenaries, thieves, a shepherd boy, a snow queen, preaching monks and a host of others getting into sticky and wet situations. I can't find when the comic started, but I've been following it for more than a year. The one thing I need to point out that you have to be careful when you read these, because some of these comics are more than one page, and you have to make sure you click on "Next Page" instead of "Next Story." There are updates every Sunday.
1. Oh Joy Sex Toy
(Image from http://www.ohjoysextoy.com/new-readers/
This brings us to my number one NSFW web comic, Oh Joy Sex Toy by Erika and Matt Moen. She, or her husband, tries a toy and records the experience. Erika knows what she likes and what works for her, yet she is adventurous even if one of the products isn't something she might try at first. She gives solid feedback on the products and always does it with a fine touch of humor. While they mostly review sex toys, they've also reviewed other sexual experiences like going to a pole dancing studio and a swinger's club. Sometimes she draws herself and her husband, and others she creates characters. These characters are diverse in their ages, genders, body types and physical abilities. I have to point out Erika is the first artist I've ever seen show people in wheelchairs, with crutches or amputations included in depictions of sex. Because her characters she illustrates are so varied, including these differences don't feel out of place. Her work makes me think of Alison Bechdel, but Erika maintains her own style. There are a whole host of guest artists and topics and I've learned so much about the human body and sexuality as a whole. Part of what separates Oh Joy Sex Toy from the rest of the comics on this list is the fact that is nonfiction. The guest artists include both their own personal stories and works of fiction. You'll be hard-pressed to find a wider range of sexuality expressed with such beautiful candor.
