“Sibylline imbues each short with a clear and strongly realized emotional core. Most enjoyable, nearly every story paints sex as a positive, joyful experience. There’s no shame or humiliation here, as nine of the women (unfortunately, not the doll) are willing partners in each act, and everyone comes out of their experiences richer for it.
A book like First Time doesn’t compare to something like Alan Moore and Melinda Gebbie’s Lost Girls. For one thing, the grandiose literary ambition isn’t here, and in many ways, that’s really a positive thing. Lost Girls was many things, but arousing wasn’t really one of them. First Time focuses intently on the sexual experience rather than any literary parallels. It has a visceral quality that goes hand in hand with the emotional pleasure the women in each story experience, and that directness and bald humanity make it a much more stirring book.
It’s frank, it’s fun, it’s a little messy and awkward; in short, First Time is a little like its subject matter. Apparently, comics are the vanguard of quality porn – which is cool, because honestly, porn never suffers in any economy.”
So says Newsarama. Why, that’s just what we thought ourselves!
