I've been producing webcomics since I was 15 and doing it full-time as a professional since the age of 25 at Periscope Studio in Portland, OR. My work has been published by Dark Horse Comics, BOOM! Studios, Image Comics, Fantagraphics, Last Gasp and Villard, among my many self-published projects as well.

Intrepid artist Erika Moen tries out a different sex toy each week for Oh Joy Sex Toy and illustrates the result. This week: the shocking Intensity vibrator. 

The comic review of the vibrator says it seems unsafe for people with copper IUDs and gives users and unexpected electric shock

Here is a text transcription of the comic to make it more accessible for people using screen readers. Transcription by Morgan Kelly.  

Erika introduces this comic by saying, “Ground yourself, Dearest Perverts, because today’s electrifying review may SHOCK you! My lovely friends at Nite Time Toys sent me an Intensity by Jopen. Thank you, guys!” Erika provides a diagram that indicates the price, material, size, and features of the Intensity.

A nude person exclaims, “Ohhhhh jeez! What am I in for!” Erika replies, “This crazy-looking vibrator is a Swiss army knife. It does a million different things.” The nude person looks excited as they take the Intensity and say, “Here goes!”

Erika continues, “The Intensity is a rabbit-style toy, so it’ll vibrate your clit while the shaft is inside the vagina… But that shaft is also inflatable! A couple of squeezes and you’ll be as full as you like! But here is where it really gets wild… Push the next button and it’ll start electrocuting your genitals.” The nude person looks confused, “HUH?”

Erika explains, “It’s marketed as a kegel exerciser that strengthened and tones your pelvic muscles with electro stimulation. By electrocuting your bits from within, it attempts to lure your body into thinking it’s having many rapid orgasms.” Erika raises her eyebrows and continues, “This was my first foray into electro stimulation… and I’m afraid my inexperience may have unfairly weighed against it.”

The nude person asks, “So what do YOU make of it?” Erika says, “Well I found the little electric zaps uncomfortable and worrying. A total buzzkill for my boner. For someone who actually is into electro play, they may find those shocks to be a total turn-on and satisfying. But it’s certainly not for me.”

Erika dodges electric lightening bolts as she says, “Maybe I would have enjoyed it more if I’d used the complimentary electrode gel included with it. But Jopen doesn’t supply an ingredients list for the gel, (even Jopen’s website didn’t have any information on it!) and I won’t trust the mystery goo. My lovely friend at Nite Time Toys emailed Jopen only to find out it has Parabens in it, which is a no-go if you have a sensitive vageen like me.”

Erika continues, “Also not included is a warning to NOT use this toy if you have a copper IUD (though there is one of the website). Which I do. But rather than dwell on my near-miss with an electrocution-style execution, let’s instead focus on the fact that one could use this as an amplifier to your IUD’s effectiveness – You can’t get pregnant when your womb is on fire!”

Erika shrugs as she says, “I know you’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover… But, dang, the Intensity is one ugly duckling. It looks like three different objects got melted together: curling iron, Rabbit vibe, fucked up ballerina foot?? It’s awkwardly shaped with no visual harmony between its elements.”

Erika concludes with her hands up, fending off the Intensity vibrator. She says, “Jopen tried to make a toy that could do it all, and instead failed to do any one thing well. There ARE better vibrators, better dildos, and dare I say it, probably better electrocuters out there. The Intensity’s tagline is ‘A Higher State of Sexy.’ Personally, I’m happy to leave the Intensity high, all right, up on my highest shelf.”

this product seems pretty

this product seems pretty shady. using electric shocks to work out your muscles? that's some electric ab belt shit. what is the inflating part made of? electrostim fetish stuff shouldn't come without detailed instructions and warnings!

Ya, thats exactly what i was

Ya, thats exactly what i was thinking too!

Red Hot Nights

I’m sure I read somewhere that electro-stimulation heightens collagen production and increases elasticity of breast tissues, worth a try right? I can’t really say it did much for my boobs in such a short time, apart from making them dance about everywhere, but it was quite relaxing...!!!
