Does That Interest You
Rooie Oortjes was launched in 1990. Nowadays, it's been published by Joker Editions and counts more than 40 books without recurring characters. Among contributors are Edouard Aidans, Bob de Groot, Josep Marti, and others. Danny produced the first six books under the name "Ca vous intéresse?" ("Does that interest you"). In Rooie Oortjes' blog, the Turkish comic artist Gürcan Gürsel is now mentioned as the author of visual design. The magazine specializes in one-page gag strips. Besides regular issues, there are specials and albums. The Holiday album is devoted to men's and women's adventures on the beach, for instance, swimming on a rubber sex doll or hunting the mermaid.

Leave Something To Imagination
In the blog of the magazine, you can find an interesting reflection on what eroticism is. Although it's said in a Wikipedia entry that the content can be classified as dirty jokes, black comedy, and soft pornography, the producers of the magazine define it as erotic and make a distinction between eroticism and pornography. In one of the posts, they write the following: "Eroticism has very little to do with pornography. That's why a comic erotic comic magazine shouldn't look pornographic. The pictures depicted should leave something to the imagination" (rooieoortjes.nl). Speaking about their audience, the editors mention that, though the comics are primarily produced for adults, it doesn't exclude a younger audience, so the accent must be put on humor rather than naturalism in depicting the intercourse. Well, let's look at some strips and covers to raise our spirit!
