''Exploitation Now'' was the first {{webcomic}} from Michael Poe (Creator of ''Webcomic/ErrantStory'' and ''Webcomic/DoesNotPlayWellWithOthers'') that ran from 2000 to 2002 on ''Website/{{Keenspot}}''. Initially the comic followed in namesake in the form of two characters: Ralph Givememore, definitely not a [[Franchise/FinalFantasy Moogle]] and [[MsFanservice Bimbo Moneymaker]]. Two roommates who pretty much messed around with each other while making as many sexual jokes as possible. Soon, another character, Jordan Kennedy, a very sarcastic self proclaimed "EvilGenius" joins them and not long after Bimbo's sister, Bush Moneymaker, is brought into the cast. However the [[SpotlightStealingSquad latter two characters soon started to become the focus of the comic as more of Jordan's backstory was known]]. And the series quickly [[CerebusSyndrome took a dark turn]].

* [[CoversAlwaysLie Cast Pages always Lie]]: Jordan's provided cast page during the original run said that she was the only one smart enough to have a no-nudity clause in her contract. While this got her out of a [=NSFW=] tentacle scene (the in-story reason being the monster disliked Americans girls), she was eventually shown taking off her top.

* BiTheWay: Jordan. Her growing attraction to Bush comes up a few times during the latter half of the comic.



* DistractedByTheSexy: Jordan once used a hologram of Jet Li to distract an assassin.
* EveryoneHasStandards: Bimbo, the porn star, finds some of Ralph's more excessive sexual activities, like his excessive nightly masturbation and watching porn with breakfast, to be disturbing.



* FreudianSlip: The first sign of Jordan's BiTheWay status is when she was engaging with Bush in a discussion as to who the best Franchise/ArchieComics character would be best to have sex with. She started off rooting for Jughead, but let slip a mention of Betty.



* ShoutOut: Plenty, have fun finding them.

* NoEnding: Well sort of, the comic does bring a conclusion to Jordan struggle against the agency that ruined her life. But it just sorta...stops after that with no follow up.
