Oni Press has launched a new imprint called Limerence Press which will focus on erotic and sex education comic books. Said to focus on "positive, diverse, and approachable stories that reflect a wide variety of emotional and intimate experiences," Limerence's first project will be reprinting Erika Moen and Matthew Nolan's three volume Oh Joy Sex Toy.

“I'm incredibly excited to be helming Limerence Press!" said Oni Press Managing Editor Ari Yarwood. “There was a point in my life where I was either going to work in comics or work in sex education, and while I obviously ended up working in comics, Limerence Press is the combination of both those passions. As a queer lady, I’m invested in publishing erotica and sex education comics that reflect the wonderful spectrum of human sexuality.”

Oh Joy Sex Toy originally started as a webcomic (which it continues currently), with the two volumes previously published. Oni's Limerence Press will re-publish those, as well as take over the planned publishing of the Kickstartered third volume.

“Throughout my time at Oni Press, our focus has been creating quality inclusive stories of all sorts,” said Oni Press Editor-in-Chief James Lucas Jones. “With Limerence Press, we are bringing that same passion for diverse, premium content to the world of erotica and sex education for all readers in the same inclusive manner that is our hallmark.”
