Thanks to the amazing continued support from The Magic Wand® and OMGYes.com, Oh Joy Sex Toy is once again ad-free for the next whole year (Sept 2019-2020)! We’re humbled and honored by the generosity of these two sex-positive companies – go visit their sites and tell them how awesome they are!
This is the Magic Wand team’s THIRD year of sponsorship. That’s… incredible, and we’re so so thankful. The Magic Wand was the first high-quality vibrator Erika ever tried over and promptly fell in love, making it her go-to wand for more than a decade (reviewed here). For some perspective: OJST is about 6-7 years old, so for almost half of this sites life, it has been ad-free because of this wonderful team and their amazing vibrators.
This year we’re excited to talk about their latest and greatest Magic Wand; The Magic Wand Plus! We haven’t yet reviewed it (will do shortly), but have gotten to try it. It’s a Magic Wand that plugs into the wall, just like the Original, but comes with all the tweaks and improvements of the Rechargeable one (reviewed here). But— and here’s the best bit —it’s a whole lot less expensive.
It’s the same Magic Wand the world has grown to love, but with modern-day improvements and more affordable – heck YES.
This is OMGYes.com’s second year of sponsorship, which is just amazing for us. We are so, so proud to have this hardworking team and incredible resource website sitting atop of Oh Joy Sex Toy.
If you’re not yet familiar with OMGYes.com, then get on it! Take a gander at our review of their first season of content, made a few years ago. This team goes out and does scientific research and studies into what makes sex pleasurable. Then they take all that good good info and turn it into one of the coolest hands-on websites we’ve ever seen. Videos, essays and interactive futuristic tools all there to teach and show you how to masturbate and find pleasure.
It’s an indispensable resource for anyone who’s starting down their sexual path, or who wants to connect and learn about the human sexual body.
We’re humbled to have OMGYes.com sponsor us a second year. Their purpose and message are so much alike to ours, if you like Oh Joy Sex Toy for the way we focus on the positives of sex then we know you will love their educational site that demystifies and explores sex in a friendly, inviting way through videos and interactive games.
What’s This All About?
At the start of 2017 we had a bit of a realization. Oh Joy Sex Toy had 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 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.
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 and now 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.
