OMGYes & Wand by We-Vibe
It’s with the amazing support from OMGYes.com and Wand by We-Vibe, that Oh Joy Sex Toy is once again ad-free for the next whole year (Sept 2020-2021)! We’re incredibly lucky and thankful to have two sex-positive companies supporting the site – go visit their sites and tell them how awesome they are!
OMGYes.com’s has now supported us for three years in a row. Which is just – amazing. They’re an awesome team with a wonderful website, and we’re incredibly honored to be showcasing them atop of the site for another year.
If you’re new to OMGYes.com, then your in for a treat. The team at OMGYES, have made this incredible sex-positive people-with-vulvae masturbation-education site. If that sounds hard to wrap your head around, think – hands-on-interviews with regular people talking and showing us how they like to masturbate. All backed with science, thoughtfulness and an air of normalization and friendliness. A few years ago we did a review of their first season (we plan to review the second season soon), but its something you really ought to check out for yourself. We promise – it’ll instantly become one of those ‘I wish I had had this as I was starting my sex life’ sites.
An indispensable resource for anyone who’s starting down their sexual path, or who wants to connect and learn about regular human bodies and vulva. Their mission is so similar to ours, that if you like Oh Joy Sex Toy for the way we focus on the positive, then we know you will love their how-to-educational site and the way it demystifies and explores sex.
We are also being sponsored by Wand by We-Vibe, for their first year of sponsorship – woop! We’re super excited to be promoting such a fun and innovative toy, by a really amazing team.
We only recently got to try and review Wand by We-Vibe, but sort of fell in love with it instantly. Check out our review here! We’ve been using Wands for years, and honestly, we thought there wasn’t much left to innovate on. Then BAM We-Vibe drop this bad boy in our laps, and it had us spinning. Waterproof, Ergonomic, free silicon attachments, physical-joystick-switch, the-good-rumble, AND a feature where it auto-turns-off when not pressed up against your bod – Yes, yes, please.
We-Vibe have always been innovating. Improving on ideas that have been around for years. We’re excited to now be a part of that, excited to have them on the site, large and in charge. Go drop them a hello, and when its time to pick up a new wand, maybe give this one a gander!
What’s This All About?
In 2017 we had a realization. Oh Joy Sex Toy had turned 4 years old and what had started as a bit-of-fun, sex education and sex toy reviewing comic experiment, had grown into something bigger. I guess we were too busy making comics to really notice it happening, but in a blink of an eye our sex ed comics numbered in the 100s and our humble experiment had become something of a real community resource.
With this revelation, we knew it was time to update the face of the site. In all those previous years OJST had run and survived on some fun but seriously NSFW ads to help pay for what we do. We’ve always been fond of a good naughty ad and felt they matched what we were doing early on. But, years later, that just didn’t fit anymore.
Nowadays Planned Parenthood coordinators send their volunteers to our site for sex ed crash courses, our monthly page views are in the multi-millions, we’re being used in doctors’ and gynecologists’ offices as a first glance resource, freshers at universities are being directed to our site and given print outs of our comics, our books are in libraries, and our comics have even shown up in the Tate Modern.
We decided it was time the face of Oh Joy Sex Toy reflected the fact that it had now become a public education resource. With the financial help of Sponsors, we removed the ad’s and now OJST is friendlier and accessible.
I Want to be a Sponsor!
Woo! As a sponsor, you’d appear with thanks on every page of Oh Joy Sex Toy and on this Sponsors page. We’ll sing your praise whenever we can and will be eternally thankful – you would be helping us to do what we do, and that means the world to us. As of right now, we only sell two sponsorship slots per year and start taking bids for them in the summer. We’re pretty picky about who we take on – it’s really important to us that what-we-do and what-you-do align! You’re always welcome to email Matthew for more information about the slots here:

Other Ways to Support Us
Filling a Sponsor slot is quite the endeavor, so we get that this won’t work for regular visitors who might be interested in supporting the site in a smaller way. If you’re interested in supporting us as an individual, we run a Patreon here. It has our personal essays, thoughts, behind-the-scene workings, and is generally a great place to go if you’re looking to just give us a dollar or two – every little help’s, we really couldn’t do Oh Joy Sex Toy without our Patrons.
Being sponsored will have no effect on our reviews. Sponsors won’t be receiving more favorable reviews or have their works be prioritized over others, nor will our previous reviews of their services and/or products be changed. Sponsorship is exactly how it looks – we’re bringing on board these people who we trust as a way to help support our site financially. They won’t have an impact on the content of what we do and how we do it. As always, our priorities lie in making a quality comic that shares our honest opinions and accurate sex education.
