Honestly, I have to question the "no linking to NSFW pages" policy, or to be precise, the "it's OK to link to SFW pages" policy. There's a pretty good chance that ANY page will be randomly NSFW, as the banner ads at the bottom of every page almost always link to either other porn comics or porn games and are usually explicitly NSFW themselves.

I'm not a fan of the Bleached Underpants approach TV Tropes has taken over the years, but having Super OCD as I do, I'm even less of a fan of inconsistency. And the current ad I'm seeing at the bottom of each strip is for an online game called "Cunt Wars" and displays a beautiful, naked, blue-haired woman with her bare tits prominently on display. So none of the strips are really "SFW".

The tropes are about big boobs/penises being used for comic effect. I would not be at all surprised if that's been done in this comic, somewhere, but the examples are written as if the trope were merely "X is well-endowed" — most of the physiques in the comic are drawn according to Rule of Sexy, not Rule of Funny.

I've put them here in case anyone can think of any genuine examples of the tropes.

One thing I've been wondering for a while concering the whole "no porn on TV Tropes!" thing... why is Oglaf still here while various other works got deleted without a thought?

Because it's not so much "porn" as it is a funny comic that uses sexually explicit art for the sake of comedy. While it's there to titillate to an extent, the real purpose is to be funny. I don't think anyone would be wanking it to this.

It's really quite brilliant, when you think about it. Want to avoid It's Been Done? Well, they've never shown a guy with his own detached penis in his mouth.

Comically missing the point?

His usual M.O. is to tease women with the promise of sex and then run off. He's just met a woman who is turned on by the idea of bad sex, and he doesn't know how to handle it.

Removed a pothole to But You Screw One Goat! from the entry for A Love to Dismember. The trope is about bestiality, not about a (non-work) Old Shame.

Holy shit you guys. So in-universe, only virgins can see the magical city. We, the readers, can see the city clearly if we're virgins or not since well, yeah, it's a webcomic...but the fact remains; we can see it. Think about the implications there...
07:26:45 AM May 27th 2011
The implications that it's a webcomic explicitly for us to view, and we're not viewing a magical portal into the world of the comic?

It's never stated that the in-universe rules apply to viewers.

this may be a little much...but this page http://www.oglaf.com/potion-girlfriend/3/ (sorta NSFW) seems to mimic scenes in the movie Tangled in the first 4 panels.

I could link the images from the movies that look the exact same but it doesn't want hotlinks and I don't have time to host them. I'll fix it later :P just search "tangled balcony" for panel 2 and the others I couldn't find a direct mirror to, even though there is in the movie. Just no stills. Mostly just wondering if anyone else noticed lol

I know this is really grasping but why couldn't the idea of a perfect relationship spawn from an adorable disney movie? The similarity really stuck me and it may be silly to think that when you compare the two, but if I liked Tangled and Oglaf both enough to pick this up, maybe the creator just happened to like Tangled as well. And just maybe they used it to inspire the idyllic relationship imagery.

Me, I think it's cute that everyone gets the same Falling-in-Love Montage.

I wonder who Alex was...

What's that torture device do (in the comic with the laser-beam hawk)? It seems like someone in the examples section figured it out...?

after some some searching, probably something from here NSFW, of course. Somewhat too much information for my taste, but have fun with it.

Does Mistress actually qualify as a Pettanko? She seems quite content with her, erm... ventral insufficiency.
