''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]].

Still floating around the net since its end, you can [[http://www.exploitationnow.com/2000-07-07/9 read it here]].

!!Tropes seen in ''Exploitation Now'' include:

* AccidentalMisnaming: Ralph gets this a lot on the nature of his species.
* ArmCannon[=/=]ArtificialLimbs: Jordan's left arm.
* BiTheWay: Jordan. Her growing attraction to Bush comes up a few times during the latter half of the comic.
* BilingualBackfire: One comic had Jordan and Bush hitching a ride on a bus full of Asian girls from an anime con. One of the girls in front of them notices the two and seeing Bush, thinking she a fellow Asian (since Bush is half Asian) starts to mock Jordan in her native tongue thinking Jordan can't understand her. However it turns out Bush can't understand the language but Jordan ''can'' and quickly lets the girl know she not amused.
* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: Jordan confronts the agency that ruined her life and manages to destroy their headquarters. But Bush is unfortunately killed in the process.]]
* BreakingInOldHabits: Among other improvements, Jordan fitted her prosthetic hand with a vibrator mode...
* {{Broken Bird}}: Jordan once you learn of her past.
* [[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 had a fetish for Asian girls), she was eventually shown topless.
* CerebusSyndrome: Started off as an off color comedy. But once Jordan became the focus...
* ChristmasCake: Bimbo is pretty much in denial that she's reached her 30s, and it's something of a BerserkButton if someone brings it up as Ralph found out the hard way.
* DemotedToExtra: Ralph and Bimbo. [[http://www.exploitationnow.com/2001-09-10/161 It was Lampshaded.]]
* 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.
* {{Expy}}: Yeah Ralph is totally not a Moogle. Where would you get that idea?
* 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.
* GroinAttack: [[http://www.exploitationnow.com/2001-09-14/163 Poor Ralph]]
* [[spoiler: {{Killed Off For Real}}: Bush]]
* KillSat: Mere child's play for Jordan to hack one [[spoiler: [[{{Chekhovs Gun}} and becomes a major plot point later on.]]]]
* LifeOrLimbDecision: [[http://www.exploitationnow.com/2002-08-07/296 Though it's pretty easy to decide since it's the prosthetic one.]]
* MadScientist: Jordan
* MsFanservice: Gee no points for guessing why she's named Bimbo.
** It's sort of a NonIndicativeName though since most people (and dictionaries) use 'bimbo' as a term for a BrainlessBeauty and Bimbo is relatively smart. Further, it's mentioned that the sisters were named by their Japanese mother while she was still high on painkillers, and their father hadn't the heart to tell her what the names meant. Compared to Bitch, Brat, and Bush, Bimbo almost got off lightly.
* NoEnding: Well sort of, the comic does bring a conclusion to Jordan's struggle against the agency that ruined her life. But it just sorta...stops after that with no follow up.
* NoFourthWall: The characters are quite aware they're in a comic and often hang lampshades about it. Mostly this is reserved for Bimbo and Ralph though.
* RefugeInAudacity
* RoadShow: Most of the focus on Jordan and Bush is them traveling.
* ShoutOut: Plenty, have fun finding them. Mostly in hallway pictures and the shirts the cast wears.
* SpotlightStealingSquad: Became pretty obvious halfway through the strip's run that Poe preferred messing with Jordan.
* WebcomicTime: Jordan takes the time to divulge her backstory during a shootout ''which took two months to get through''.
* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: Bush questions this to a tentacle monster when its waiting for a female swordswoman to finish her transformation. He thinks about then [[RuleOfCool tells her not to mention it again]].
* YouBastard: Poe constantly grumbles about what perverts his readers are. In fact, the title of the comic can in itself be seen as this.
** Which can be HypocriticalHumor considering, you know, nothing's stopping Poe from drawing said art.
