Much like comics themselves, erotic art is often dismissed in the mainstream as low-brow and trashy. Well, it's time to throw your taboos out the windows, because like any genre, the art of making things sexy has some pretty sublime and beautiful moments -- just check out the gorgeous and highly pornographic "Lost Girls" by "Watchmen" creator Alan Moore if you don't believe me. And he's not alone -- some of the biggest and most-respected artists and creators in comics have tried their hand at pin-ups or straight-up pornography over the years. Chris Sims of the Invincible Super-Blog even made a list.
In this overview, we will try to give a general survey of comics with adult, sexual and erotic content. We have carefully chosen the graphic material, but apologize for anyone, including Google, who might feel offended by pictures used for erotic illustration. If you are under the age of eighteen, or feel in any way that explicit sexual material might upset you, we advise you instead to browse through some of the thousands of other innocuous pages on this site. In today's advertising-driven world, it is unfortunate that many prominent Internet search engines feel they must 'protect' you from seeing depictions of basic human sexuality, except when selling consumer products. From the moment when comic artists first learned how to handle a pencil, many have used their talent to draw sexually explicit scenes, within cultures all over the world. For some this was just a juvenile phase, others have developed this particular interest into a professional production, to entertain and satisfy an audience of millions of fans of the graphic arts. Comics with a sexual content are always bound - or at least influenced - by the current cultural taboos.
