Oglaf appreciation thread - very NSFW - hilarious pornographic webcomic

A couple of months ago, I discovered Oglaf dot com, and I thought I'd share it with you. It's a webcomic set in a (somewhat parodic) medieval fantasy universe with elements of other genres occasionally thrown in. It's definitely grounded in humor, but the fun twist is that most of the strips are incredibly, unapologetically, pornographic.

There are only about 50 strips in the whole collection, so it wouldn't take one very long to read them all. There are some through stories, but it's largely unconnected one- to three-strip shorts. Here are some of my favorites:

"Cumsprite" - The first strip in the whole bunch. Introduces the recurrent themes of magic, fantasy, masturbation jokes, and gratuitous nudity. Eight pages long; very NSFW:
SPOILER:
"Fountain of Doubt" - one of several on the Spanish Conquistador theme, and one of the few strips that is not pornographic at all. But I laugh out loud every time I look at this strip. Probably my absolute favorite:"Simon the Wanderer" - Hilarious unexpected punchline. NSFW: "Fresh Horses" - One of several with the "shapeshifter" characters, who don't quite get human behavior or sexuality. Two pages, NSFW:
SPOILER:
A few general thoughts on the comic.
First, the art is surprisingly good, considering the medium. I especially like the coloring (check out the Hot Bitches in "Cumsprite"). It looks like the artist/s put a lot of effort into each one.
Second, even though this is a humor/sex comic, the author shows surprising deference to gender equality and modern gender theory. Both sexes are shown equally often in power positions. Men are not universally slavering sexual hyenas, and women are not universally retiring yet coquettish ingénues. It's great to see that everyone can be the target of a joke, even when it comes to sex.
Finally, the author doesn't let sex get in the way of the joke, and doesn't (often) use sex as a crutch for his humor. That is, he doesn't (often) say "Well this joke isn't very funny, so I'll throw some tits in there to make up for it." Usually, the sex is an integral part of the humor. I find this pretty nifty.

Has anyone else read this? Anyone have a favorite? Or any thoughts?

My wife and I are huge fans of this strip. Particularly the Arthuriana ones.

I admit though that my favorites are the one with the gay barbarians. Every single time I read the strip 'Hiltin' I bust a gut laughing. I eagerly await new episodes on Sundays.

Okay, started reading, and the 'Fountain of Doubt' strips have me absolutely ROLLING. The other ones are pretty amusing, too, but the conquistador and his ... Helper... Are killin' me here!

I started following the strip about two months ago. "Fountain of Doubt" is a masterpiece.

"Fountain of Doubt" is one of my favorite single comics I've ever read. Don't know why - there's just something so right about it. The rest of the series doesn't come close to that standard, but it's still pretty fun. Reminds me a lot of Phil Foglio's Xenophile.

I've been enjoying the work too, and "Fountain of Doubt" is definitely a high point. The latest entry, "Snow Queen" is a riot as well. Also, the one with the King who wanted to drink from his enemy's skull.

The "Hilting" one killed me when I first read it. I haven't been there in a while, I'll have to go check out the new stuff.

Snow Queen is my favourite strip. Although the Cum Sprite's reward cracks me up to an unreasonable extent.

After discovering this goldmine of hilarious porn, I went searching all over for who the artist was, but it was a while before I finally found it. It's by an Australian female artist, Trudy Cooper, who also draws a (non-pornographic) strip called Platinum Grit.

Also "Fountain of Water So Delicious Even Dead People Want It."

That does sound pretty delicious.

Updated yesterday (NSFW):So what do you think? Will the author play it straight, and have the ol' Tits Defense work? Or will the twist be that their "ancient secret" is castration?

This week's strip:
SPOILER:
I read this strip ten times and absolutely did not get the joke. Then I noticed that the URL ends in "1" which means there are more pages. And here, the second page, of course, contains the payoff.

That's one annoying thing about this comic: a lot of the strips don't really have any humor, being intermediate steps in a story. Fortunately, these multi-strip stories are always put out at the same time.

More on point, I love the fifth panel of the second page of "Pinecone." That moment of dawning realization is priceless.

Someone posted Oglaf in a thread a few months ago and I've been hooked on it since.

I'm neither a huge online comic nor a pron comic reader, but I do like this one a lot. And I second what Randy said in the OP, it's dirty, it's funny, but showing sex or nudity hasn't ever been used in leiu of a joke.

Weird... I would have lost that bet. The plots and scripting have a totally male vibe to me.

Also don't miss the "banner ads" on the site. A few of them are genuine, but most are themselves jokes. Right now I'm seeing "Don't waste billions on hadron colliders! find out the weird trick to making Higgs bosons at home- Discovered by a mom!

"Sanctuary": You know, it's one of the saddest things in the whole world when a beautiful, sexually available woman is batshit crazy.

I noticed that the injury Kronar suffered in "The Hilting" continues in subsequent stories.

Oh, and I wanted to add: After the events in "Tribute Day", "Bad Falcon" and "A Capital Punishment", I wonder if the hit on the Primate of Gar was reinstated?

The mouseovers don't start until Lapis Lazuli fyi. At least I didn't see any others until then and forward.

They start as early as Noblesse Oblige, although only for some panels. For example, only the second two Book of Love panels have funny mouseovers.

The more recent ones do have text that pops up on mouseover, but not all of them. All do have alt text, though, which can be seen by right-clicking on the image and selecting Properties.

Sadly, most are really not all that funny.

Edit: Oh, example. Well, the current comic up, Ulric the Just, is one. And it turns out the alt text is different from the mouseover text.
Alt text: Justice, like comedy, is only good when it happens to other people.
Title (mouseover text): the double edged sword cuts both ways, but the 100-blade swordball slashes the shit out of everyone.

The new oglaf has a better ending than the epilogue of last week: http://oglaf.com/emancipation.html

(And I just love how the creator takes the earlier Chekhov's gun and just runs with it)

If you've missed the kidnapping arc, it's best to start here: http://oglaf.com/glove2.html
