Super Fun Sexy Times
Cartoonist Meredith McClaren (Hinges) tells five short, sexy stories featuring superheroes, supervillains, sidekicks, and the people who love them.Showing consent and character-driven erotic relationships, Super Fun Sexy Times answers the age-old question: what happens when the mask comes off? Two sidekicks on opposite sides get stuck in an underground lab together, and find a great way to pass the time. A tactician and superhero discuss their desires, limits, and kinks before their first time, and perhaps get a little too excited in the process. A pair of supervillains explore gender and sex together, while growing closer in their relationship. Lesbian heroes try out a kinky rolepaying scenario, and discover how to make it work for both of them. And an exhausted assassin relaxes after a long day with the kind (yet firm) attentions of his husband.Told with care, sex-positivity, and humor, and featuring a wide variety of sexualities and bodies, Super Fun Sexy Times aims to create an erotic reading experience that lives up to its name!

Super Fun Sexy Times is composed of 5 short racy and explicit stories that are sex-positive, LGBTQ+ inclusive, and immensely diverse.Humans are deeply and innately curious about everything that's going on around us, but do you ever wonder what some of our superheroes and infamous villains do on a holiday, even behind the camera? Well, it's quite amusing especially when they remove those tights, corsets, and steamy lingerie. Of course, they need a bloody break too for entertaining most of us! Kinks, sexual fetishism, and roleplay are explored in this little book.While sexy time rings true to its title, "super fun" is a tad hyperbolic. Truth be told, this wasn't just my cuppa, unfortunately. The illustrations, narrative, and the writing style didn't quite grow on me (no pun intended). Aye, smutty, it is, but it would take more than heaps of smutty pages to hold my attention and this wasn't the kind of humour I was expecting. It still has its positives though as this book greatly fosters communication and a better understanding of each consenting partner's needs. 2.5 stars rounded down. Thank you Netgalley and Limerence Press for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest review. This graphic novel will be published on August 20, 2019.

I think it's great to see these ideas shown, but they just weren't my cuppa.Also, as much as I appreciated the supportive partners shown in each story, I sort of wish there'd been at least one story showing more negotiation between partners who aren't necessarily fully into the same things. So yay for showing diverse, inclusive scenarios. And double-yay for providing examples of being vulnerable to explain what you'd like to try. Hopefully the next volumes will have even more to learn!3 stars for Super Fun Sexy Times.Thanks to NetGalley and Oni Press for providing me with a DRC of this book.

    I'll be upfront and say that I somehow missed the "erotica" tag on Netgalley when I first downloaded this graphic novel, so it did take me off-guard a little bit to see how explicit the scenes were! I wasn't going to mention that in this review until I noticed some other reviewers saying they had similar experiences, so I just want to point that out for anyone who may not be comfortable viewing explicit materials. It didn't bother me, it just surprised me a little. 😅With that out of the way, Sup I'll be upfront and say that I somehow missed the "erotica" tag on Netgalley when I first downloaded this graphic novel, so it did take me off-guard a little bit to see how explicit the scenes were!

It didn't bother me, it just surprised me a little. 😅With that out of the way, Super Fun Sexy Times is an absolutely gorgeous, adorable, and inclusive AS HELL anthology about superheroes and their romantic escapades. There is just such a wide variety of rep in here — we've got characters of varying races, sexualities, identities, and body types — and they're all so soft and sweet and lovable. There's a bit of exploration into some kinks, and what I loved most of all is how consent-focused the stories were. In some of the stories, the romantic partners literally sit down, fully clothed and non-sexual, to discuss things ahead of time, and I thought that was such a fantastic representation of what consent talks need to look like for a lot of couples (especially when kinks and exploration are involved!). All in all, I just thought this was such an important, necessarily, lovely, and well-crafted graphic novel and I'm really appreciative that I had the chance to read it. ♥Thank you so much to the publisher for providing me with this ARC in exchange for an honest review!

    3.5 starsNSFW!!!!! (Probably 10x the number of drawings of private parts compared to a Saga installment, just FYI). These are fun and sexy, and sex positive in almost every conceivable way. Even the superhero stories made sense! (You know how hard it is to find erotica that makes sense?!)The art is not entirely to my liking, but still...

This collection of stories features everything from m/m and w/w romances to nonbinary romance roles and kitten play kinks with people of various races, species (aliens), sizes, and ages. I love that these stories were not only incredibly inclusive, but also covered so many healthy relationships convos in sucha short amount of pages (i.e. using condoms for safe sex, discussing limits/fantasies/health/history with your partner, etc). All the partners were incredibly supportive and loving, and it highlights that we'd all probably have a lot more fun during sexy time if we were open and honest about what we wanted/needed. My only real complaints are that I wish the character cards (read: explanation of who was featured in the story) were at the START of each story rather than the end, and that these stories were given more time to grow and develop. If they were a little bit longer I feel like they could have been more fleshed out and not felt so instasex. But, hey, it's in the name so I guess I should understand what I signed up for. Whether this is in your comfort zone or not, I think healthy conversations could stem from reading this collection.

Nevertheless, Super Fun Sexy Times does live up to its name. I liked each and every story. Its not often that I can say that about a collection.Three things stood out to me. First is I loved the art of the writer/artist, Meredith McClaren. Most typical superhero comic book art consist of colors that are bright and outlined in black ink, McClaren’s style is not typical. While her colors are bold with minimal shading, her colors are not in the primary spectrum. Second is that her characters are not all heterosexual musclemen or busty women. They come in all sizes, shapes, colors and combinations. There are a number of couple combinations - M/M, M/F, F/F and M/Alien. Diversity and inclusion is the theme here. And the third thing which really stood out to me is that there is consent before and more discussion before and/or after sex than I ever expected.Sidenote – I liked the choice the author made of adding the bios of each character after their stories. Because the fun facts she adds that are not mentioned in the story would've been distracting.I'm looking forward for Vol. 2.****ARC was provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

So, while all these superheroes are made up, as are the bad guys in some cases, they all have some sort of super power, and that is where we begin each short story.The pictures are sensual.

They were sexy stories of cartoons that were well known to the public. They were very graphic. The sexual organs were huge, and the women not always willing.This is not what Super Fun Sexy Times is.There are gay encounters as well as straight. There are old as well as young. Not safe for work, by any means, but a good quick erotic read. Recommended.Thanks to Netgalley for making this book available for an honest review.

A lot of other reviews mentioned that they thought the stories were too short, and while I would've liked more, I still thought the pacing was really great and I liked the little character descriptions at the end of each story. I know this wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea and I can definitely see why, but I really loved this one and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to people who like diverse characters, sex-positivity, superheroes and intriguing storylines.

    First off, this is classified as erotica and it is most definitely explicit. Despite the superhero theme it is not for children. There are plenty of ejaculating penises and other nudity which is expected in an erotic comic. I appreciated the diversity of the characters and their real, non-stylized bodies. I also liked the emphasis on consent and respect in these interactions although I did find them to be limited in plot and generally just getting right to the sex.

I also liked the emphasis on consent and respect in these interactions although I did find them to be limited in plot and generally just getting right to the sex. That’s not to say the characters don’t have their backstories but these are told in character profiles at the end of each section and not incorporated in the story itself. Let’s be honest, this isn’t Shakespeare and it never claimed to be deep and meaningful. It is porn in graphic novel format which is great if that is what you are wanting. Personally, I was hoping for a little more of a plot and more in depth character development and this book left me a little cold. I think I may not be the right audience for this sort of thing! If you just want to see drawings of people getting it on then this may be perfect for you. Apparently, it is not my cup of tea.Thank you to Oni Press and Limerence Press for providing an Electronic Advance Reader Copy via NetGalley for review

The characters happen to be heroes and villains (and not necessarily human) who have sex at some point of their chapter, but what I got from the five short stories is that the graphic novel is more about people opening up about their insecurities and identities and exploring their sexual fantasies with their partners in a very trusting and consensual (but still really hot) way.Every single story in this book is incredibly beautiful and I'm glad I got to read it.---ARC provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.[Review on Tumblr]

    I received this book in exchange for an honest review. This book was one of those books that just kept popping up every time I browsed NetGalley. I admit I was a little hesitant to read it simply because I didn’t think it could live up to what I expected. Luckily, I finally decided to take the plunge with this book and I was not disappointed. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS GRAPHIC NOVEL. Obviously, caps-lock was needed.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS GRAPHIC NOVEL. Obviously, caps-lock was needed. Super Fun Sexy Times by Meredith McClaren is not your typical graphic novel, nor is it something that is going to be for everyone. It’s graphic, and I do mean graphic, so take that into consideration. You will see x-rated pictures, so I recommend this book for the 18+ age group. It’s also not a book you’re going to be able to read out in public, around family, or at work (seriously, don’t read this at work).The artwork is beautifully done, but the content is what makes this graphic novel stand out. This book is practically a how-to novel on talking to your partners about sex, your wants, and your needs. The best part about this book is that fact that it features consent, sweet, fun, and sexy consent. I loved that we saw characters negotiating role play scenes & realistically talking about sex. I also truly appreciated how inclusive this book was. You have people of all shapes, sizes, sexual orientation, etc. which made me want to cry with how beautiful it was.This is definitely a book I would recommend to the right reader. It is well worth the read & a book that I’m going to have to buy a hard copy of. It’s phenomenal. If this book sounds like your kind of read, you need to pick it up! It’s one of my favorite books I have read this year.
