They always say you never forget your first time.

Let's have two categories:

1. Implied/Off-Panel

2. Explicit

And if possible, let's split those into two more sub-categories:

a. Your actual first

b. The oldest/earliest issue or strip by date

How much detail you put into the description is up to your own discretion, but let's all remember the site rules.

Let me sift through my memories a bit and I'll get back with my own answer/s. I've always been intrigued by the history of sex in this genre.

I've not seen any, apart from in 90s Ninjak comics. He's done it at least.. three times. Implied and explicit.

watchmen was my first comic. So I think that answers all questions

In a Spider-Man comic. Peter and MJ. Whenever they made out light switches would be switched to off or MJ would tackle Peter whislt shirts were removed.

Explicit. The first Manga I ever saw. Dont remember the title, just that my artist pals loved Manga/Anime

I see quite alot in manga..matter fact a good 60% of the manga's I read have a few sex scenes in them, the first one was Gantz chapter 59 actually titled Sex It went on for 2 chapters and was very explicit.

I started reading comics in May and my first encounter with sexual content was in the current Batwoman run, between Kate and Maggie. I don't know how many of you actually know how that was done, but it was... explicitly implied? You could see that they were doing it, but their lower bodies were not on panel.

It was a very tasteful execution of the panels and I'd like it if more artists handled such scenes that way.

I think explicitly implied does kind of work, as it was very tastefully handled. I'd maybe even refer to it as a love scene rather than a sex scene.

Wracking my brain for the first implicit one, which would likely be in the B&W Conan. Or maybe Nightwing and Starfire. The first explicit scene was probably in Foglio's XXXenophile, or some indie comic I've long since forgotten. Ironwood, possibly. Or maybe Elementals.

Why not both? It may be more than just sex, but it is also sex.

I just mean that it strikes me more as a showing of affection and emotion rather than a physical thing.

Two or three years ago I read DeadPool Suicide Kings. Implied sex

#13 Edited by silent_bomber (2194 posts) - - Show Bio

Pretty sure there's an implied sex scene between Pete and MJ in one of the early Venom stories.

On the other question, not sure, I do however remember getting in trouble due to a sex scene between Judge DeMarco and some guy in 2000AD, its just one panel, she's riding this guy and you don't see anything. The other kids told on me saying I'd brought a "dirty comic" to school.

At the time I was pretty mortified, looking back on it though I just feel as though it shows how stunted the other kids actually were in comparison to me and my friend, we didn't think it was a big deal and was just part of the story.

Implied a few times in Amazing Spider-Man.

#15 Posted by MrMiracle77 (1659 posts) - - Show Bio

For implied, Nightwing and Starfire woke up fairly nude around the time Trigon rolled in in the 80s Titans series.

And then Watchmen, of course.

Mine was in one of the first few issues of Fables, with Rose Red and Jack. I just can't quite remember how explicit it was, but I do remember it showed them both naked.

The oldest by date is probably from The Sandman, I read the whole thing, but I'm not quite sure which of the several encounters happened first. It was probably that scene in the diner with the escaped convict mind controlling everyone using Morpheus' jewel. The art was kinda simplistic so it wasn't as explicit as it could have been.

Pretty sure it was in The Sandman comics which I picked up when I was ten or eleven. Oops? I was kind of desensitized to the nudity and violence in that comic because previously I'd been reading about Greek Mythology and stuff, but yeah. Pretty sure it was The Sandman. There's a possibility it was The Watchmen though, which is pretty far from okay.

Watchmen I guess

#26 Posted by Dernman (15690 posts) - - Show Bio

It was when I was real young and can barely remember. It was in Global Guardians Owl Woman and Jack O'Lantern I think. After that is was Spider-Man and MJ. Back when they were young and frisky. That got it on all the time. Those were good times for the couple.

1) A Superman and Dracula crossover, it was not explicit, Lois was almost nude and was sleeping with Clark, they were married IIRC, I don't have the issue anymore, I was like 10 or something. Has anyone else read the story?

2) Watchmen probably but I'm not sure.

I also read some James Bond comic strips, some of them were implied but most of them were very explicit.
