From the publisher:

Erika and Matthew are ready to talk about sex!

Have you ever had a question about sex, but didn't know who to ask? Well, Erika and Matthew have spent years learning, talking, and creating informative comics about all aspects of sex. Using comics, jokes, and frank communication, they're here to demystify the world of sex and answer your questions—including ones you might not even know you had!

In this first book of the Drawn to Sex series, they explore the practical side of sex, from the basics of what defines sex, to barriers and testing, masturbation, and the ins-and-outs of having sex with other people.

Pick up this fun book if you’re looking to learn something new, understand sexuality better, or know someone (maybe you!) who might benefit from some judgment-free education. Erika and Matthew are here to help you out.


"This is a sex-positive gulp of fresh air."

– Publishers Weekly

"A sense of joy and wonder pervades the whole book, and Moen and Nolan want a sense of joy and wonder to pervade your sex life too."

– Manhattan Book Review

"I dare you to read this without immediately running out your door to try everything with the babely humans in your life."

– Autostraddle

Erika Moen is a veteran of nearly 20 years in the comics industry. She is best known for her autobiographical story DAR! A Super Girly Top Secret Comic Diary and the sex toy review/sex education series Oh Joy Sex Toy. Her work focuses on sex, sexuality, identity, and fart jokes. She lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband and creative partner Matthew Nolan.

Matthew Nolan is wise beyond his years. He's been helping make sex education comics for the past five years and still looks great doing it. He lives in Portland with his wife Erika Moen, and cat Flapjack, who doesn't contribute to the comics at all, despite living off of the proceeds. Lazy, if you ask me. Matt's almost entirely grey, despite only being in his 30s!
