This is the second year that The Magic Wand is sponsoring us and we couldn’t be more excited. At this point, they feel like a part of the family! We launched OJST with a review of the legendary (formerly “Hitachi”) Magic Wand and now own not only that same original model, but the updated version, AND our MUCH loved Rechargeable incarnation. We couldn’t be more excited to have this group of powerhouse toys helping support our site behind the scenes.
The Magic Wand is a brand and a team that just keeps giving, and not just in the bedroom! For putting community and pleasure first and foremost for so many decades, thank you for supporting us another year Magic Wand! We <3 you!
We discovered the OMGyes website a year ago and were blown away. This amazing team and website do scientific research, asking thousands of people what makes sex more pleasurable for them. They then take that data and put it back out there in some of the neatest ways we’ve seen; using interactive tools and personal videos. It’s not a subscription – but a one-time payment where the money goes to funding further waves of research. We think the site is comprehensive, compassionate, indispensable, and fun!
This is OMGyes’s first year as a sponsor, and we’re so proud to have them on the site. What they do and what we do feel so perfectly inline— and that is: demystify the many ways pleasure works and encourage exploration through camaraderie. We loved them a year ago, and we love them even more now.
What’s This All About?
At the start of 2017 we had a bit of a realization. Oh Joy Sex Toy turned 4 years old and what had started as a bit of a fun sex education and sex toy reviewing experiment has since 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 our site. In all those previous years OJST had run and survived on 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.
In 2017 we decided it was time the face of Oh Joy Sex Toy reflected the fact that we now are a public education resource. With the financial help of Sponsors, we removed the ad’s. Now thanks to these amazing companies, OJST is friendlier, accessible and valuable.
I Want to be a Sponsor!
Woo! As a sponsor, you’ll 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 summers. 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.
