No, I'm not trawling for porn.
I'm kicking around an idea for a webcomic about relationships and stuff that would have sex in it. Not porn, or even erotica, but just sex scenes like you get in movies. Maybe a bit saucier than that. Think Friends mixed with Sex in the City (OK, I don't actually know either of those shows very well, I'm just hoping I'm hitting the right note here.)
Anyway, in reading up on other romance/relationship comics, I've yet to come across one that isn't either "no sex in panel please" or "porn with a plot". Not that there's anything wrong with either of those, but I was hoping I could sit somewhere in between. Is that possible, or is the slide into erotica inevitable?
I'm worried it may be hard not to get sidetracked into the sexual side of things, or, on the other hand, that I'll frustrate my readers by not delivering the booty they signed up for. Do any of you know of any webcomics with sex but not about sex? Or have any thoughts on how to pull this off? (Not that I have no thoughts of my own, but it's always good to augment the voices with someone who actually lives outside my head, you know?)
So, webcomics and sex, discuss.
(My site - nothing relating to this new comic up there yet, but other comics that can be read.)
