Overview

Combining the kinky world of online dating and comics in crazy explosion!
Ellen Forney's follow-up to her wildly successful I Love Led Zeppelin is a collection of cartoons celebrating the sometimes stunningly crude, sometimes surprisingly sweet online world of personal classifieds.
Forney has for several years been illustrating the Seattle alt-weekly The Stranger's "Lustlab" classified ads by interpreting the most interesting, outrageous, or idiosyncratic ad in that week's paper, that is awarded the appellation "Lustlab Ad of the Week." "Lustlab" is the category encompassing the kinkiest personal ads in the paper, and every week the page attracts Seattle's finest lovers, kinksters, perverts, and the perv-curious, and each week, Forney chooses one ad, edits the text, and creates a comic combining that text and imagery. She uses her brushwork in many different styles—bold and graphic, fine and detailed, cartoony, or elegant, depending on the tone of the ad. She uses a variety of resource materials for inspiration, from early erotic photography to Tom of Finland to Wacky Packages-style send-ups of consumer products to original designs.
Exhibitionists, voyeurs, threesomes, moresomes, tops, bottoms, switches, rope-lovers, spankers, spankees, bi-curious men, bi-curious women, lesbians with prison fantasies, masturbation clubs—Forney illustrates them all in her bemused, affectionate, witty, and elegant style.
In addition to the text and illustrations, the author embarked upon the rare journalistic feat of interviewing six enthusiastic Lustlab subscribers, who provide background, context, and hilarity (intentional and unintentional) by discussing their participation in the Lustlab network and their lusty experiences with the lovers for whom they advertised. Thrill to their outré sexual quests! Live vicariously through their sexual adventuring! To cap it off, the collection includes an introduction by the notorious sex advice columnist and novelist (and Stranger editor), Dan Savage.
You'll meet (and love):
• The female-to-male transsexual boot-loving Germanophile
• The trashy fat redneck man seeking same, preferably with months-old B.O.
• The erotic hypnotist's offer to give women mind-blowing "joy-buttons"
• The smartass bisexual nerdy-girl rope-lover
• The obedient transvestite who wants to clean women's toilets
• The man organizing a private strip poker game for gay men
• The butch dyke seeking a femme for erotic medieval reenactments
• Three women friends seeking a male "service bottom"
• The woman who wants to watch a very fat woman on the toilet
• The male-to-female blonde transsexual who wants "airhead" lessons
• The man who wants to be humped in public by someone in an animal costume
• The woman who wants to try "pegging" for the first time.
Exhibitionists, voyeurs, threesomes, moresomes, tops, bottoms, switches, rope-lovers, spankers, spankees, bi-curious men, bi-curious women, lesbians with prison fantasies, jack-off clubs—Forney illustrates them all in her bemused, affectionate, witty, and elegant style.

Editorial Reviews

Nisha Gopalan - Entertainment Weekly
“Alternately clever and goofy, Lust is a fantastic voyage into the nether regions of human desire.”
Nadia Shireen - Bizarre Magazine
“A funny, twisted look at how weird and lovelorn human beings can be.”
Jen Graves - The Stranger
“Where written ads can be gross, ridiculous, or borderline desperate, the drawings are funny, playful, and sinuous.This world would be a whole lot hotter (and lighter) if it were full of Forney’s characters.”
Kevil Collier - Ready Made Magazine
“Sure, you'll see some naughty drawings, and perhaps you'll gasp or chuckle when you realize what Emerald City dwellers are up to these days, but Forney's drawings humanize the seamiest of thrill seekers…Lust is worth a peep.”
Bitch
“Forney's joie de vivre and appetite for instruction infuse every page.”
Seattle Post-Intelligencer
“Forney's comics are whimsical and wise as well as sexy, naughty, and sometimes shocking.”
Sherman Alexie
“Forney's comics are hotter than five-star curry.
